Mistakes to avoid

Many people contort their facial muscles when they do ujjayi. This is unnecessary. Try to relax the face as much as possible.

Do not over-contract the throat. The contraction should be slight and applied continuously throughout the practice.


This is a very simple practice that is also known as nabho mudra. Actually there is a far more difficult form of khechari mudra that involves various surgical operations to the tongue, lasting over a period of months. The practice we give here, however, can be done by everyone without any preparation or practice.
