Bhraman Pranayama, Definition, Techniques and Benefits


The body must be kept straight while walking. Inhalation and exhalation should be slow, steady and deep through the nostrils and in a rhythm with the steps.

Count mentally while inhaling and while exhaling. The duration of exhalation will be longer than that of the inhalation. If we inhale for 2 seconds (2 counts), then we should exhale for 4 seconds.

After a few weeks of practice, the breathing capacity will definitely be increased. One can start with a 5 - 15-minute session. In this way, the duration of walk or Bhraman Pranayama can increase as soon as stamina gradually increases from 20 to 30 minutes and an hour. We should remember that being in a hurry is outlawed in the Breathing Techniques of Loknath Yogic System. If one practices continuously, the breathing capacity of the air cells in the lungs will increase day by day. One can also count the steps while inhaling and exhaling in the same manner. However, breath holding should be avoided in this Pranayama.
