Here’s a simple Pranayama method for calming the mind, cooling the body and deepening the breath. As the mercury level is rising and the body is getting heated up, the ancient yogic gurus have passed down a process that we can attempt and is in our capacity to experience and benefit.

Sitali or Sitakari – A Breath To Cool The Body

1. Sit comfortably with the back straight.
2. Bring the head slightly down so chin is directed to space between the collar bones.
3. Stick the tongue out, rolling the sides of the tongue inwards to make into a straw.
4. Inhale through this rolled tongue like you are drinking through a straw.
5. As you inhale, take the head up as well till the head is comfortably extended backwards.
6. Before bringing the head back down, hold the breath, now roll the tongue backwards so tip of tongue rests on the roof of the mouth.
7. Bring the head back this way, so chin is once again rested in space between collar bone, release the tongue from the roll and exhale out completely.

This is one round, you can do at least eight rounds of this to feel it’s effect. Try to stimulate the saliva to wet the mouth while inhaling through the tongue.
