  • Improved brain function
  • Improved sleep quality

How is it done?

To practice sudarshan kriya you must first position yourself in Vajrasana. Thus, sit on a yoga mat or mat and make sure that the tops of your feet and ankles are touching the floor. Sit back on your heels and relax your body.

Next, move your buttocks towards the floor, so they can rest on the floor. Your ankles should touch the outside of your hips once they are in position. Make sure you sit as straight as possible, but keep your body relaxed. If you feel too much pressure on your hips or knees, you can remain seated on your heels, basically, in the Vajrasana position.

Throughout the entire kriya, you should maintain relaxed breathing. In the sudarshan kriya, a three-part breathing cycle is used, which will take some practice to perform correctly:

  1. In the first cycle, you should inhale and exhale in a relaxed manner with breaths of equal length.
  2. In the second cycle, your exhalations should be twice the duration of the inhalation. In the third cycle, your inhalations should be twice the duration of the exhalation.

A typical sudarshan kriya session should last about 45 minutes. Also, it can be practiced at any time of the day, except after eating. Ideally, you should allow a gap of at least two hours after eating before tackling a sudarshan kriya session.
