The science of Yoga has cure for almost all types of diseases except some major chronic diseases like cancer, HIV aids etc. I have myself undergone three yoga camps to learn most of the yoga practices at Haridwar in India and am licensed to teach pranayama as yoga instructor. I have recently seen many people suffering from weakness of muscles, Parkinson’s diseases, wavering of the mind and thoughts, and lack of overall mental concentration. I would suggest performing Kevali pranayama to such people to cure all above mentioned ailments. The detailed procedure for performing this Kevali pranayama is explained here below in this article.
Each and every pranayama sessions are to be performed most preferably in the early morning hours at around 6 am after completing all the morning rituals successfully and with empty stomach. One has to sit at one airy corner of the house facing towards East in either lotus pose or with legs crossed on the ground on the suitable yoga mat. These yoga mats are made up of insulated rubber and are having rough dotted surface so as also to derive benefits of acupressure therapy while performing pranayama. Close your eyes and try to concentrate on any good thought or in the god you have faith on, taking slow and deep breaths. Go on emptying your mind till it is completely empty of all the thoughts. It sometimes becomes difficult to reach this stage as the thoughts keep on coming in our minds particularly at the time when we do not want them. However, some practice of around two to three weeks would train the minds and the thoughts would stop coming in the mind, leaving your mind empty and receptive for the benefits of this rare type of pranayama. Once the desired concentration is achieved, start taking deep and slow breath with the sound of ‘AO’ till your lungs are completely full. This deep and slow in breathing may take around eight to nine seconds. Once the long and slow breath in is complete, start exhaling very slowly reciting the word ‘M’ from your mouth till your lungs are completely empty. Do not try to hold your breath in between breathing in and out. Repeat this breathing cycle for at least twelve times in he beginning. Gradually increase this practice up to fifty times maximum in one session. You also may not stop in between while performing this pranayama as far as possible. There should not be any type of disturbance like phone, other distracting sounds in the house. Such sounds would not allow your mind to concentrate fully and you may not be able to derive maximum benefits of this rare pranayama.
It is advisable to perform this pranayama at the end of the pranayama session after completing all other standard pranayamas like Bhastrika, Kapalbhati, Anulom-Vilom and the Bhramari. The veterans in the field of yoga may be able to perform this pranayama for around two hundreds times in a single session. However, the key aspect is to increase the time and frequency very slowly and gradually. You will feel that all your body muscles are strengthened and the involuntary movements of your hands (due to Parkinson’s diseases) would slowly reduce over a period of around four to six weeks of performing this pranayama on regular basis. The mind concentration would also come slowly and you will be able to make critical decisions of your life quiet easily. That is why this pranayama is extremely useful to the persons holding high managerial positions whose decisions may affect thousands of people. I have been teaching this pranayama exclusively to the chief executing officers of the companies so that they can train their minds to take correct decisions in time to save major losses to their companies and employees. This pranayama is one of the most powerful tools of achieving concentration of mind in today’s global scenario of stress and competition.
I would sincerely advise all my AC friends and readers to start doing this pranayama immediately from tomorrow itself so as to derive all its major benefits without any delay. In case of any doubts on its procedure, please feel free to contact me.
