Sitkari pranayama or hissing breath

Practicing this breathing exercise relieves a bout of pain caused by arthritis.


1. Sit in a comfortable position.

2. In this exercise, a hissing sound is produced when the breath is drawn in, through the mouth, with the tongue touching the upper palate. When the breath is drawn in, a hissing sound similar to ‘si, si, si’, is produced. Hold the breath until you can and then throw out the breath through both the nostrils.

This pranayama yields its own benefits. It makes the practitioner strong and invincible.
