Ujjayi Pranayama

Ujjayi Pranayama

  • Ujjayi means the ocean and this pranayama is about mimicking the oceanic sound or the sound of the waves. 

Step by Step

  1. Be seated in a comfortable position crossing your legs.
  2. Now start to inhale  normally with the mouth. 
  3. While doing this, start to constrict your throat as if something is choking it/as you’d  fog  a mirror when you exhale out the mouth  similar to the ocean when you breath. 
  4. You can repeat this pranayama breathing exercise for about ten to fifteen times.
