When you feel the flames of anger starting to rise, instead of fuelling the fire by yelling or stomping around, give Sheetali a try.   

Known as the ‘Cooling breath’, Sheetali is a natural tranquiliser, soothing the  mind and restoring the balance of Prana throughout your body.

It’s simple, safe and instantly relaxing….there’s just one pre-requisite: you must be able to roll your tongue!

How to practice Sheetali Pranayama:

  • Sit in a comfortable position with your spine straight and your hands resting on your knees
  • Close your eyes and consciously relax
  • Stick your tongue out as far as it will go
  • Roll up the sides of your tongue to create a tube shape
  • Inhale through the mouth, sucking up air through your tongue-tube
  • Close your mouth and exhale slowly through the nose

Repeat 5-10 times (more if it feels comfortable) and watch as your anger dissipates into thin air.

Once you’ve cooled your immediate rage, you might wish to settle into a calm and meditative state with the help of Nadi Shodana Pranayama.
