YogaThis asana is one of the easiest and best ways to help fight all the damage years of smoking have done to your body. Yogendra Pranayam 1 not only helps balance the respiratory system by ensuring that the duration of our inhalations and exhalations are equal, but it also brightens your eyes and makes your skin more radiant beating all the ill-effects smoking has had on your eyes and skin. This asana is also great for your lungs. It strengthens them and makes them function with better efficiency. As an added advantage, Yogendra Pranayam 1 also helps improve your body language and increases your confidence.

Steps to do this pose:

  • Stand erect with your feet apart (this technique can be done by you sitting in sukhasanaor vajrasana later on).
  • Inhale slowly and continuously in a relaxed manner to a count that is comfortable. For instance, you can start by inhaling for 5 seconds and gradually increase the count every week.
  • Once the inhalation is complete, hold your breath for a few counts, and exhale in the same manner and to the same count. The idea is to equalise your inhalation and exhalation.
  • Concentrate on the slow, continuous and uninterrupted flow of breath.
  • You can practise this technique once in the morning and once before retiring to bed.
  • Do 10 rounds of this technique on a daily basis for effective results.
