Yoga is becoming more and more popular because of the benefits it offers. But yoga can do much more than just increase metabolism, improve digestion and relieve PMS symptoms. Pranayama, which is said to maintain blood pressure, can be done in just a few minutes. The best aspect of pranayama is that it can be practiced anywhere without any equipment.
Daily pranayama practice can help lower blood pressure, reduce stress, promote relaxation, calm the mind, and serve as a preventive strategy. Here are five effective types of pranayamas that you should do every day.
Method: Sit in Padmasana and close your eyes. Close the right nostril with your thumb on the right side. Breathe slowly through your left nostril. Exhale after removing your thumb from your right nostril. Repeat it 10 times.
Benefits: This pranayama can improve vision and help purify the blood, regulate blood pressure and lower the risk of heart disease.
Method: This breathing technique uses passive inhalation and active exhalation. Inhale regularly, inhale as much air as possible, and then exhale forcefully. As you exhale, try to pull your abs as close to your spine as possible.
Benefits: This pranayama can help you lose weight fast, eliminate belly fat and balance your body’s sugar levels. It also improves the function of the abdominal organs.
Method: Place your index fingers on the temples and close your ears with your thumbs. Close your eyelids with the other three fingers. Breathe in slowly and hold your breath for a few seconds. Exhale as you hum while keeping your mouth shut.
Benefits: It is one of the best breathing exercises for anxiety as it helps to clear the mind of irritation, worry, anger or excitement. It can relax your mind instantly.
Method: Breathe in and out. Make a sound from your throat as you take a deep breath and bend your head down to obstruct the free passage of air. Hold for 2 to 5 seconds. Exhale through your left nostril while covering your right nose with your right thumb.
Benefits: The sound vibrations used in this pranayama help you focus and can even treat thyroid conditions and reduce snoring.
Method: Expand your stomach as you inhale deeply and as much air as possible. Pull your belly button toward your spine as you push the air out of your lungs with all your strength. Perform your pranayamas while sitting in the cross-legged position of Sukhasana. Close your eyes and keep your spine straight. Concentrate on your breathing and only think of good things. As you routinely do these breathing exercises, increase the number of cycles.
