Bhramari Pranayama

Written by: Ruthie Hanan
Bhramari pranayama (also known as bumble bee breath) is one of my favorites to practice.  The idea of this breath exercise is to turn all of your senses from external to internal.  To practice this breath, use your thumbs to block your ears completely while using the other fingers to cover your eyes. Take a big inhale and exhale by humming while pressing your tongue to the roof of your mouth, continuing 5-10 times for 3 rounds. I found that this pranayama gives me a vibrating sense of calm throughout my mind and body that is so pleasing, enjoy!
