Brahmari Breathing Technique:

Inhale through nose with a slightly constricted glottis. (sounds like snoring)

Exhale slowly through slightly parted lips making a bee buzzing sound (sounds like humming)

**You may also plug your ears to intensify the vibration and sound in your head

Repeat 5-10 times (breaths)
