Ujjai Pranayama Miraculous remedy for thyroid problems

In Ujjai breathing, the glottis is partially closed. The glottis is that part in the throat area that closes when you swallow, but which is open when you breath. When you partially close the glottis while breathing, you can hear a sound resonate from within, as well as feel a flow of air on the palate. A slightly different sound is heard on inhalation and exhalation.

During inhalation, one tightens the abdominal muscles very slightly, and during exhalation the abdominal muscles are used to exhale completely.

One feels the air and listens to the sound during the practice.

Ujjayi Stage 1


Inhale gently allowing the air to pass into the body with ease and no resistance.

Exhale make a sound with the mouth closed that sounds like “hhhhha”.

Make the sound the same throughout the exhalation. This will indicate the same amount of air leaves the lungs throughout the exhalation. An uneven sound usually indicates an unsteady nervous system. This will smoothen out during practice.

Resistance created by the sound slows down the breathing rate and creates a back pressure that helps keep the airways open.

Careful not to use too much force. A sound that is too loud indicates too much internal conflict. Muscles are used in the exhalation and other muscles are used in restricting the exhalation and also to create the sound. Use the muscles lightly so that the conflict of energy within is soft and pressure does not exits around the temples.

Ujjayi Pranayama Tips


Reduce the amount of pauses if at any time the heart feels strain, mind feels starved of oxygen or nerves feel out of balance.
