This Technique with Calm and Balance Your Body
After doing Kundalini yoga for many years, I have learned many different breathing techniques. They each help with different things. Doing this breath called Sitali pranayama will help cool the body and mind. To do sitali breath, you slowly sip air through a rolled tongue (or pursed lips for those who can't roll their tongues). It will counter all that internal heat in the body and bring you back into balance. In Ayurveda this breath is known to soothe a Pitta imbalance.
