1. Can i do it without a guru? ( I am not able to find a right guru for me )
2. Without retain the breath, while doing pranayam, do i need to keep any ratio for inhale or exhale?
(I watched a video of Balakumaran, a tamil poet who said the basic pranayama without retaining breath should be done with 1:2)
3. While holding breath, should i inhale in left nostril and exhale in right nostril always?
(Thirumoolar in his book has written that the inhale should be always in the left nostrils)
** If you are from Pondicherry, Can you please help me by suggesting a guru?
** sri swami sivananda kundalini yoga - Do we have any translated version of this book? I need it in tamil
Pranayama is a simple technique you don't need any guru for doing pranayama. It is a breathing exercise which helps in improving the function of the lungs and also increase the good flow to fresh oxygen in the entire body.
Sorry Mahesh i am not from Pondicherry.
Yes, but need to be more careful. Check out more about pranayama here.
