Yoga

Sit cross-legged and place the feet on the thighs. Now exhale with mouth closed. Exhale from the heart, throat, and the head. Then, inhale with a hissing sound until it touches the heart. Inhale and exhale with force, repeatedly. This keeps prana in constant circulation in the body. Then, exhale through the right nostril. Repeat this process 15 times and relax
