Yoga And Yoga Asanas - How does Madhyam Pranayama Work?



Follow these steps to perform Madhyam Pranayama:


 1. Place one hand on the upper chest below, the collar bone, the clavicle, to control the high superior lobes of the lungs. Deeply inhale and exhale, raising the hand with the heaving of the breath. Allow the breath to perform the "heaving," rather than becoming "muscular." 

2. After three to six rounds of this kind of breathing, put your hands on your lower sides or hips, allowing your armpits to arc out from your body. Concentrate on the side high lobes such that breathing causes the lobes beneath the armpits to expand. In this posture, do three to six rounds of deep breathing. 

3 Raise your arms over your shoulders and put your palms on the rear upper region of your lungs.



Concentrate the attention on the upper back lobes for three to six rounds while breathing deeply. Because it is not a natural component of the autonomic breathing function, the high or clavicular breath that fills the apical regions of the lungs needs conscious mental control. 

Only a small percentage of individuals breathe correctly in these upper lobes, which accounts for the sad number of asthmatic and sinus type breathers. 


The flow of air and Prana into the upper chest region is controlled by Adhyam Pranayama. 


  • The Prana that flows through this region regulates many types of breathing problems, as well as numerous allergens that afflict the bad breather. 
  • Because the bronchial tubes that feed air to the upper lobes are at a lower location, these lobes are often partially loaded with stale, leftover air that can only be cleared by continuous, mindful Adhyam Pranayama. 

To open up the cells of the lungs that are not usually utilized, a conscious effort should be made to perform this Pranayama for at least six minutes each day. 


  • Dyspnoea, or difficulty breathing, will be relieved almost immediately, and with the intentional practice of all three types of Vibliaga Pranayama, breathing problems will be a thing of the past. 
  • If the Vajra Asana is too difficult to maintain for the entire six minutes, a basic cross-legged sitting posture called Sukha Asana may be substituted. 
  • In the Shava Asana, or Corpse Pose, this Pranayama should also be practiced. 


All three types of Vibhaga Pranayama, or Lobular Breathing, should be included in a Yoga practice. Each region should be practiced for up to six minutes.

Yoga And Yoga Asanas - Madhyam Pranayama?




Madhyam Pranayama can be performed with the following steps:




1. Place one hand between the breasts on the chest to regulate the breath into the middle lobes or mid-lobular region of the lungs. Deeply inhale and exhale till the hand is moved by the deep breathing. Breathe three to six times in this way. 

2. Then, for three to six rounds, put the hands on the outer mid-section of the chest and breathe deeply behind the hands. Allowing for deep breathing, the ribs should open "accordian-style." 

3. Wrap the hands as far around the back center region as possible, fingers pointing inwards to the spine, and focus the breath three to six times in this region. 



To be perfect, mid-breathing or inter-costal breathing requires conscious mental control. It isn't a natural component of the autonomic breathing system. 


  • Because of the curvature of their chests and the location of their breasts, most women are excellent mid breathers. 
  • Men are bad breathers in this region, and it takes a lot of practice to breathe smoothly around and behind the heart. As a result, males are more likely than women to get heart disease. 


Madhyam Pranayama regulates the flow of air and Prang into the midchest and heart region, while the action of the breath reduces the fat that develops around the heart due to incorrect breathing in the same region. 


  • This kind of mid-breathing should be practiced for at least six minutes each day to open up the cells of the lungs that are not usually utilized. 
  • It is a great method to avoid hearing loss and the only method to permanently relieve the problem for people who currently have it.
