  • Sit on your favourite Asana (Padma asana, Vajra asana or Sukh asana) in a well ventilated room free from any distractions. Keep the waist, back, neck and spine erect. For the beginners, you can sit on a chair or sit cross legged on the yoga mat/ carpet keeping your back, neck and spine erect.

  • This humming sound should be at a continuous pitch, not to vary the tone or level.
  • Rest for 3 to 4 seconds and then repeat 5 times.

Benefits

  • Makes voice pleasant and melodious.
  • Increases power of concentration.
