Pranayam to Boost Your Immune System

This exercise brings energy to your immune system to fight infection. It is a very healing exercise. When you feel a tingling in your toes, thighs, and lower back it is an indication that you are doing this exercise correctly.

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with your chin in and your chest out.

Breath: Stick your tongue all the way out and keep it out as you rapidly breathe in and out through your mouth. This is called Dog Breath.

Time: Continue this panting diaphragmatic breath for 3-5 minutes.

To end: Inhale, and hold your breath for 15 seconds and press the tongue against the upper palate. Exhale. Repeat this sequence two more times.
