Digra Pranayama

By Mr. Sarvesh Shashi

The Digra Pranayama is different from other types as it involves lying down on your back instead of being in a seated position. This technique involves very deep inhalation and exhalation. It is a three-part breath exercise.


Digra Pranayama

  1. In the first part, lie down on your back and close your eyes. Breathe normally and then, slowly take deep breaths, while relaxing your body. Inhale slowly to fill your belly in a way that your belly rises up like a balloon. Hold this position for a few seconds, then exhale pulling the belly inward. Ensure there is no air left.
  2. In the second part, inhale deeply to fill up the belly. Inhale to fill up the air in your rib cage. As you exhale, exhale the air from your rib cage and then from your belly.
  3. In the third part, inhale deeply to fill up your belly and rib cage with air. Inhale to fill up your heart center with air. As you exhale, exhale the air from the heart center, then the rib cage and then, the belly.

Practice and repeat the whole process five to six times.

This pranayama is beneficial in reducing stress and anxiety and enhances full and complete breathing. It also reduces muscular tensions and increases the supply of oxygen to the blood.
