Ujjayi strengthens the nervous and digestive systems. A powerful cure for phlegm. Instructions for Ujjayi Breathing Exercise
Both Ujjayi and Surya Bheda are body heating pranayamas and so exhalation is confined to the cooling left nostril. Inhale fully through both nostrils while slightly closing the glottis. Glottis is the part of the larynx made up of the vocal cords and the slit like opening between them. This should create a faint sobbing sound, as the air is drawn past the back of the nose. Retain the breath, applying both Bandhas Jalandhara and Moola. After the breath has been exhaled apply Uddiyana Bandha.
Start with three rounds build up to twenty rounds.
