    Bhramari Pranayama (Buzzing Bee Breath)

    TIME:5 minutes

    BENEFITS: Calming, Stress Relief, Mental Clarity

    Buzzing Bee Breath has a unique way of calming the body and mind by creating small vibrations in your brain and soothing your nerves. If you find that your mind just won’t stop running, then this is the perfect practice for you.

    Sheetkari Pranayama (Hissing Breath)

    TIME: 5 minutes

    BENEFITS: Cooling, Calming, Improved Focus

    Sheetkari Pranayama is a cooling technique in which the mouth takes a special shape as you make the sound “shee” on inhalation, which is similar to a hiss. This is a great alternative to Sheetali Pranayama (page 70) if you’re unable to roll the tongue into a tube. In addition to helping with cooling down during warm weather, this practice can also help reduce the symptoms of hot flashes.

    Simhasana Pranayama (Lion’s Breath)

    TIME: 3 to 5 minutes

    BENEFITS: Stress Relief, Detoxification, Toning

    The hardest part of practicing Lion’s Breath is to not laugh at the funny face you have to make when doing it. This forced breath exercise helps clear your lungs of toxins and bring balance to your throat chakra. If you’re having a hard time speaking your truth, add this practice to your routine.
