What are some of the mistakes to avoid while doing anulom vilom?
1. Using full hands up and down
You may think using your entire hands is the right way to do it, but steer clear of these mistakes, ladies. One of your hands should be in gyana mudra and must rest on your knee. The other one that you use to breathe through your nostrils must be in vishnu mudra. What is it? Both the index and middle finger have to be touched with the root of the thumb.
2. Elbow up and lifted
Another common mistake is to keep your elbows elevated and lifted, but that’s not the right stance. Instead, you must keep your elbow comfortably pointing to the floor. If your arm hurts, take the support of the other hand. In this manner, you get the required support, but your technique isn’t wrong.
3. Moving the whole body
How many times have you seen people moving their entire body, while practicing anulom vilom? Well, it is completely wrong. Instead, remember to only move your belly; you don’t need to do anything else.
4. Pressing the nose too hard
During alternate nostril breathing, you think that pressing the nose too hard is going to make it effective, give it a rethink. Instead, use your fingers to press your nose very gently.
