Bhramari Pranayama

Posture:

Sit in a comfortable posture keeping the head, beck, and spine erect. Place the right thumb against the right nostril but do not close it.

Process:

Inhale slowly and deeply through both nostrils. Press the right nostril with the right thumb. Retain the breath for a while, then exhale touching the lungs, throat area, and larynx. While inhaling and exhaling, concentrate the conscious mind on the throat and produce a humming sound like the buzzing of a bee. Since this sound resembles that of a large bee, it is named Bhramari.

Time:

Starting with nine times, increase up to twenty seven times.

Benefits:

It makes the voice sweet and gently, and helps clarity of speech. Breathing becomes deep and subtle. It is useful for hypertension and depression, and aids brain cells.
