Sitali Pranayam

Sit in a comfortable meditative posture with a straight spine. Curl the tongue up on the sides and protrude it slightly past the lips. Inhale deeply and smoothly thought the rolled tongue and exhale thtought the nose. Continue for 5 minutes.
Inhale, hold, pull the tongue in and relax. Then repeat for 5 minutes more.

Sitali Pranayam is a well-known practice. It soothes and cools the spine near the 4th, 5th and 6th vertebrae, which, in turn, regulates the sexual and digestive energy. This breath is often use for lowering fever and it can cool you in warm weather. Daily practice of 26 breaths in the morning and 26 breaths in the evening can extend the lifespan. The tongue may taste bitter at first, a sign of toxification, but as you continue the tongue will taste sweet and you will have overcome all sickness inside.
