Agnisar Pranayama

A regular practitioner of this pranayama makes the person expert in padmasana, which will be beneficial. This pranayama gives momentum to fire in the stomach. The fire is present inside the body. It produces heat in the minute and big parts and makes the body and mind active and strong. The main objective of this pranayama is strengthening the inner energy.

First Method of Agnisar Pranayama:

Sit in Padmasana and keep the hands on the knees in a comfortable position. Close the eyes slightly and concentrate on the mind with normal breathing.

Exhale slow, deep and stable breathe. Stop the breathe outside, i.e., do Bahirmukh. Stretch both the hands straight and keep them on the knees with slight pressure. Contract and expand the stomach. Try to touch the navel deep inside the stomach.

Keep the stomach and hands normal before doing poorak i.e., inhale. Now take deep, stable and slow breathe.

This is one cycle of Agnisar pranayama. In one cycle contract and expand the stomach at least ten times. Increase the number to 30. In the beginning practice it for 5 times and then slowly increase is it up to 15 cycles. During winters you can practice it for 25 cycles. Breathe normally, rest for sometime and then do shavasana.

Second Method of Agnisar Pranayama:

Remain in Shavasana for five to ten minutes and take deep breathe as in the first stage. Stop the breathe inside and do Antarkumbhak. Do moolbandha and Jalandhar bandha at this stage.

As in the first method, stretch the hands straight and bend the head as much as you can and try to touch the chest with the chin. Do moolbandha along with this so that the moolbandha is stretched upwards. In men the moolbandha is situated between the rectum and the genitals and in case of women it is in between the uterus and vagina.

Before exhaling loosen the moolbandha and then the Jalandhar bandha. Keep the hands normal. Then deeply breath in like in the first stage.

This is one cycle. Rest for some time in Shavasana after doing five to seven cycles of this pranayama.

Cautions while practicing Agnisar Pranayama:

This pranayama should be done in the morning hours after passing bowels and getting free from the morning chores. Those who want to practice it in the evening should do after four hours of having meals.

During winters, Agnisar pranayama should be done as per the procedures. This is the best time for this pranayama. During summers after doing this pranayama ten rounds of Shitali pranayama should be definitely practiced.

During the practice period the person should eat simple, pure food. Avoid eating heavy, oily, fried and non-vegetarian food.

Smoking and alcohol should be completely avoided.

The patients of intestinal problems, hernia, high blood pressure and other diseases should not practice it.

If you have undergone stomach operation recently then this pranayama should not be practiced. It should be done under the guidance of some yoga expert after few months.

Stop the practice immediately if you experience tiredness and practice it the other day.

Practice it according to your physical capacity. Do not do kumbhak in excess of your body capacity. Make sure that during Bahirkumbhak slightest air should not get inside.

Patients suffering with ear, nose and eye problems should not practice agnisar pranayama.
