Benefits of Sitali Pranayam

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS

In the early morning, answer the calls of nature and sit for the practice. Practice Pranayama in a dry well-ventilated room. Pranayama requires deep concentration and attention. It is always better to have the practice in a steady posture. Do not keep anyone by your side to avoid distraction of your mind.

Before you sit for Pranayama, thoroughly clean the nostrils well. You can take a small quantity of fruit-juice or a small cup of milk or coffee even before the practice. When you finish the practice take a cup of milk or something light to eat after 10 minutes.

Practice only in the morning during summer. If there is heat in the brain or head, apply Amla oil or butter on the head before you take your bath. Take Misri Sharbat by dissolving sugar candy in water. This will cool your whole system. Do Sitali Pranayama also. You will not be affected by the heat.
