WHICH IS THE BEST PRAANNAAYAAMA [BREATHING] TECHNIQUE?
[APRTEMAANANDAA’S YOGA SECRETS REVEALED SERIES -1] Swaamee Aprtemaanandaa Jee is sharing FOR THE FIRST TIME the full secret of the BEST PRAANNAAYAMA [BREATHING] TECHNIQUE that Swaamee Aprtemaanandaa Jee has learnt over years by trial and error method…!
YES, Swaamee Aprtemaanandaa Jee knows well THAT NOT EVEN THE BEST OF THE BEST YOGACHARYAS OR YOGA-TEACHERS IN THE WORLD PRESENTLY KNOW THE FOLLOWING SECRETS THAT Swaamee Aprtemaanandaa Jee IS REVEALING WITH YOU DEAR READERS THROUGH THIS ARTICLE…:-) YES, HEREAFTER, THESE SECRETS SHALL NO MORE REMAIN A YOGA SECRET…:-)
Generally, you must have been told that you MUST BULGE OR EXPAND YOUR STOMACH AND CHEST DURING INHALATION [KUMBHAK] AND CONTRACT YOUR STOMACH AND CHEST DURING EXHALATION [RECHAK] the technique that Swaamee Aprtemaanandaa Jee would love to term as BULGING CONTRACTING STOMACH TECHNIQUE [BCST]. BUT, THIS IS NOT AT ALL THAT SIMPLE…:-)
Swaamee Aprtemaanandaa Jee had started practising Praannaayama without any full understanding of the same after having attended the Yoga Camp of a well-known widely respected Avadhoot of the Shiv-Yoga line WHO TAKES PRIDE IN CALLING HIMSELF THE FATHER OF THE SIDDHA-HEALING [no offences meant here :-)]…!
Swaamee Aprtemaanandaa Jee would pull chest up during KUMBKAK and pull it down during RECHAK. This method that Swaamee Aprtemaanandaa Jee loves to call THE PULL UP DOWN BREATHING TECHNIQUE [PUDBT] was followed with utmost sincerity for full three consecutive winters by Swaamee Aprtemaanandaa Jee. This PUBDT method didn’t do any harm during summers, BUT WOULD INVARIABLY RESULT INTO COLD-RELATED SEVERE AILMENTS LIKE COUGH, NOSE-RUN, SNEEZING, WATERY EYES & CHEST-CONGESTION, etc.
Suddenly, Swaamee Aprtemaanandaa Jee realised that the PUBDT is good for summers, as it helps COOL DOWN the physical body system, but is the WORST ENEMY during the COLD winters that in any case are cold…! So, Swaamee Aprtemaanandaa Jee switched to the BCST during the subsequent winters.
Swaamee Aprtemaanandaa Jee’s own personal findings based on own personal experiences and own personal discoveries are as follows:
1. PUBDT IS BEST SUITED FOR SUMMERS.
2. BCST IS BEST SUITED FOR WINTERS.
3. 40 cycles of LEFT TO RIGHT AND RIGHT TO LEFT NOSTRIL BREATHING TECHNIQUE [LTRARTLNBT] CO
MBINED WITH THE BCST ONCE EVERY 24 HOURS DURING WINTER SEASON GENERATES SO MUCH TREMENDOUS HEAT IN THE BODY THAT YOU CAN DRINK THE COLDEST WATER STORED IN ANY FRIDGE OR REFRIGERATOR WITHOUT EVEN CATCHING THE SLIGHTEST OF THE COLD OR SNEEZING…! THIS POSSIBLY IS THE REASON WHY THE ANCIENT HIMALAYAN YOGIS NEVER FELL ILL OR NEVER HAD SORE-THROATS DESPITE DRINKING THE COLD WATER OF THE COLD HIMALAYAN RIVERS…!
HERE ONE CYCLE MEANS
INHALATION of air through the left nostril with the right nostril closed with the right thumb and then retention of it for 1-2 seconds before its release out through the right nostril after removal of the right thumb with the left nostril closed with the small and ring fingers or the small finger alone of the right hand; and after 1-2 seconds, again INHALATION of air this time through the right nostril with the left nostril closed with the small and ring fingers or the small finger alone of the right hand and then retention of it for 1-2 seconds before its release out through the left nostril after removal of the small and ring fingers or the small finger alone of the right hand with the right nostril closed with the right thumb of the right hand.
1. The best Praannaayama Technique for winters described here must be done daily during winter days. If you discontinue it for a day or two during winters and then drink cold water from fridge or refrigerator, you will certainly fall ill by catching any or all cold-related ailments…!
2. It always is advisable to start practising the yoga under the guidance of a fully competent Yoga instructor before doing it on your own. [APRTEMAANANDAA’S YOGA SECRETS REVEALED SERIES -1]
