Three new techniques this week. Agni Sara, Sitali, and Ujjayi. Agni means fire, and we are stimulating our digestive fire.
Sitali, the one that cools. One of the most therapeutic pranayamas. Useful for taking excess acidity out of the body and balancing the effects of pita.
Third, Ujjayi, the victorious pranayama. In most yoga practice Ujjayi has become associated with breathing with sound. But it is also a classical pranayama technique that involves more than just the sound.
Do not practice Uddiyana bandha kriya, Agni sara and Kapalabhati if you are pregnant or on your cycle.
