Bhramari Pranayama (Bee Breath)
Please note that this practice should be done only with a Yoga Instructor present.... Hense I will not be uploading a video on this Pranayama, but will list the benefits all the same.... Ask your instructor about this Pranayama
This breathing technique derives its name from the black Indian bee called Bhramari. (Bhramari = type of Indian bee; pranayama = breathing technique)
The exhalation in this pranayama resembles the typical humming sound of a bee, which explains why it is named so.
- Beginners can start with deep breathing practice in sitting position (Padmasana - Lotus, Swastikasana- Auspicious, Vajrasana - Thunderbolt, Any Cross legged position in which the body can be relaxed and spine is erect.)
- Then start inhaling through both nostrils, and then start creating sound while you exhale. Humming sound whilst swaying from side to side.
- Initially 4 seconds inhale through both nostrils while creating sound while exhaling for 6 seconds through both nostrils, this can be practiced for about 5 minutes.
- With practice one can increase the counts to 4:8, or 5:10 or 6:12 seconds
- Once the exhalation sound is mastered, one can start trying to create similar sound while inhaling. The inhalation sound is very difficult, but is possible with constant efforts.
- You may feel little cold or tingling sensation in the throat due to sound but this is normal.
- Under No circumstances the proportion of the breathing should be forced.
- If you feel dizzy then please stop the practice and continue normal breathing.
