What Is Sukha Pranayama?



Sukha Pranayama is a kind of pranayama. 

  • Sit in Vajra Asana, however any sitting position can be used if heel-sitting is problematic. 
  • Thunderbolt the way you stand. Place the palms of the hands on the legs, close them in against the body, or fold them together and lay them in the lap. 
  • Inhale and exhale deeply. six to 10 times slowly 
  • The entering breath should be at least six counts long, as should the exiting breath. 
  • Extend the number of rounds after a few days of practice until five to six minutes of deep breathing is effortless. 


Sukha Pranayama and the four-part Sukha Purvaka Pranayama that follows have three guidelines to follow. These are the rules: 


1. The inhale and exhale should be done at the same time. 

2. The amount of body lung gases released should be equal to the volume of ambient air taken in. 

3. Breathing should be evenly distributed throughout the three sections of the lungs: low, mid, and high. 


This may be difficult at first, and a particular partial pranayama known as  Vibhaga Pranayama will need to be done initially.
