      How to do Pranayama Breathing Exercises ?

                      First find a place which is not too noisy and crowded, where you will not get disturbed. Second wear something comfortable clothes. Too tight cloths will distract you. Hey, check out my clothes for Meditation & Yoga on Amazon, Click here, Meditation - Yoga Clothes.

                              For meditation your posture must be comfortable and relax.  Seat in comfortable posture or pose I prefer   'Lotus pose' (Padmasana)‘Half lotus pose’ and  'Thunder-bolt pose'(Vajrasana) for meditation. Take any   Mudra   (hand gesture) you like for meditation. I prefer   Dhyan mudra   and   Gyan mudra for meditation. You can meditate sitting on the ground or chair or on  Yoga Mat (comfortable one), which I purchased from Amazon.
                               As you seat in comfortable  posture  and took  mudra  with your eyes closed, concentrate on your breathing or internal sound like Heart beat. Now don’t take deep breath, your breathing must be at natural depth. Don’t chant any mantra or pray. Stop your thinking and thoughts.

                               Now slowly start inhaling, breath in full of your lungs capacity(inhale full)  and at the same time count up-to 3 (3 seconds by counting 1,2,3 in mind), hold your breath for 3 seconds and then slowly – slowly exhale, count up-to 3. Hold your breath as empty again for 3 second and then repeat again for several times i.e. 3 – 3 – 3 – 3 .

                                You can increase or decrease the seconds and make it 4 – 4 – 4 – 4 or 2 – 2 – 2 – 2 . There are many types of Pranayama (Breathing Exercise) but this is most common type. Next is Nadi Shodhana Pranayama

Note :- You can Meditate anytime - anywhere you want, try to meditate on  Yoga Mat (comfortable one), which I purchased from Amazon.
