How to Practise Anulom Vilom Pranayam?

Anulom Vilom Pranayam

  • Sit down in any comfortable pose with your spine straight(for beginners sukhasana or vajrasana is preferred). If you cannot sit down, then you can sit on a chair, but do not lean your back on the chair.
  • Keep the left hand on your left knee and place your right hand on the nose. Close your left nostril smoothly with your middle finger and ring finger. Do not twist your nose, just press the nostril so that no air passes through.
  • Inhale through right nostril with moderate speed till your stomach gets full and close your right nostril with your thumb. Make sure you do not let out any air through any of the nostrils.
  • Hold the breath to the maximum extent you can bear it. Now release your left nostril and slowly exhale the air through your left nostril.
  • Once you exhaled all the air, inhale air with your left nostril this time. Again hold the breath to the maximum time and exhale slowly with your right nostril.
  • Now one round of pranayama is completed. You can do eight rounds in one sitting and you can practice up to three sittings in a day.
  • Through out the practice keep your back straight.
