Yoga exercise: These are the four stages of pranayama.
1 Puraka (inhalation) A unique inhalation is referred to as Puraka. This process of inhalation should
be calm and, above all, even.
2 Abhyantara Kumbhaka (break after inhalation) After inhaling, a conscious break is taken as a
second step. The air flow is interrupted, the air is kept in the lungs and there is no movement in the body.
3 Rechaka (exhale) The third stage refers to the exhalation. Just as with inhalation, calmness and
regularity is required. The speed, however, depends on the particular breathing exercise and may differ from inhalation. Normally you need to engage the muscles to inhale, while when exhaling the relaxation of these is sufficient. During Pranayama breathing exercises, the air is often released quickly from the lungs.
4 Bahya Kumbhaka (pause after exhaling) The fourth stage of breathing may seem strange to most
beginners. Because after exhaling a break is taken. This closes the circle and the process starts again. The eternal cycle of the breath.
