Ever felt like the pressure of life is taking away the peace of your mind? Are you having trouble sleeping and eating? Or maybe you’re just not able to live a full life? If these problems resonate with you, try making a conscious effort to be calmer, starting with these pranayamas.

Sahita Kumbhaka Breath

This pranayama is both simple and effective.

  1. Start in padmasana. Sit straight cross-legged on the floor, hands on your knees, facing upwards.

  2. Take a deep breath and hold it for 4-6 counts.

  3. Exhale and when your lungs are completely empty, hold for 4-6 counts.

  4. Repeat for 2-5 minutes.

Ujjayi Breath

This pranayama is great at calming your central nervous system.

  1. Start in padmasana with your spine straight.

  2. Inhale through the nose and take each breath as deep as you can.

  3. Exhale through the nose with force so that your breath makes a whooshing sound.

  4. Repeat for 2-5 minutes.

Sitali Breath

This asana requires some practice but its effectiveness makes it well worth it.

  1. Start by rolling your tongue in a tube shape.

  2. With your tongue rolled, take a deep breath through your mouth.

  3. When you can’t inhale anymore, touch the roof of your mouth with the tip of your tongue and close your mouth.

  4. Hold your breath for a couple of counts and exhale through the nose.

  5. Repeat for 2-5 minutes.
