Method Bhastrika Pranayama

Sit in Padmasana, Siddhasana or Vajrasana stretch your head, neck and back. Put your hands on the laps. Inhale and exhale rapidly your or five times like a blower. Similarily contract and expand the lungs. A peculiar rusting sound will be produced during the practice of this Pranayama. But the performer must practice this Pranayama rapidly and without stopping even once. At the completion of one round (Avartana) the performer must inhale breath as deeply as possible and retain it as long as possible. Ultimately exhale as much breath as possible. Thus a round (Avartana) of Bhastrika completes. After resting a while, perform another round of this Pranayama.  During the first week do two rounds only. From second week onwards, do three to four rounds of Bhastrika pranayama.

Do not ever do more than four rounds in a single day.
