Murcha Pranayama Tutorial: Try Swooning Breath

Murcha pranayama tutorial_ try swooning breath.png

This quick tutorial will teach you how to do a variation of murcha pranayama or swooning breath. It's recommended that you try other forms of pranayama first if you're a beginner.

This is a more advanced form of pranayama and if you're pregnant, have any type of mental or heart condition, please go with a gentler breathing technique.

We start with counts of 5, but if you're more advanced, you should do other longer counts on subsequent rounds.

OR if you’re more advanced in your practice and are looking to clean up a bit, I’ve got just the thing:



  • Crystals and gems are highly interactive with their environments. They absorb, store and emit energy and information. Because of their stable makeup, they can store all kinds of information and emit it out into the world. They react to the input of someone's energy and information (like a mantra or intention). Likewise, they emit a certain vibration frequency that could alter the energy field (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual) of the person or other energy form in their immediate environment. 

    This obviously leads to energetic change. Healing, uplifting, cleansing, empowering, inspiring, energizing, magnifying, balancing, restoring. Depending on the crystal with its specific benefits and your own intention, a crystal could be your catalyst. Powerful tools for meditation and yoga. I get my crystals from a great source: Click here to shop Sage Goddess Collectible Crystals.

  • Yoga mat and accessories? This question comes up a lot from my students. When it comes to mats, props, and other little needs for meditation and yoga, my favorite brand for mats and accessories has always been Manduka. Durable, comfortable, well-made. I love Manduka.


This is an easy question for me to answer! Yoga Outlet has all the stuff. A lot of brands, a lot of discounts, plenty of sales, great customer service. I’ve never had a problem with them, and they have the biggest selection. I wear most of the stuff I have bought from Yoga Outlet every day.
