Now bring your chin down touch your chin to the chest. Hold in this position, counting slowly to 10.
Bring your chin up, close your left nostril with your forefinger, slowly exhale. Exhalation should take twice the inhalation time. Concentrate on the exiting breath. Empty your lungs fully. Stay concentrated on the movement of the air out of the lungs.
Repeat this exercise ten times. Alternate the first step with the first step and the first time commencing by closing the right nostril with your right thumb. In the second round, begin by closing the left nostril with your middle finger.
It is important to focus on the movement of the air into and out of your lungs fully. You will slowly feel a degree of calmness.
