Origin, history

This training type, as well as "Power", is derived from "Vritti Pranayama" (translated to English by B.K.S. Iengar in his book "Light of Pranayama"), an ancient Vedic technique of breathing gymnastics, and is translated from Sanskrit as "Irregular Way", or "Uneven Movement".
It is highly recommended to master "Power" and "Harmony" patterns, as 'Vishama Vritti' is the advanced version of those techniques.
In Prana Breath this training type is adapted even for people that don't practice Yoga and/or don't have much time for practice but still need its effect.

Setting the training

  1. Download this pattern if you don't have it yet.
  2. Choose this pattern in Training tab or Control tab.
  3. Set the optimal training complexity so the training brings you joy, yet doesn't seem too easy. Use the options in Control tab and/or Dynamic tab to adjust all parameters.
  • NB! Be extra careful with this pattern if you have a tendency to hypertension.

Training process

  1. Choose the comfortable position.
  2. Empty your lungs, breathing out with effort ("Prepare").
  3. Inhale through your nose.
  4. Retain the air, concentrating on relaxation.
  5. Exhale either through your nose or through your mouth.
  6. Keep breathing like this till the end of your training session. Note that the breathing ratio is not constant throughout the training.
  7. After you're done, you might take some time for meditating and contemplating yourself.
  • If you feel quite comfortable with the practice, you may add an air sustain phase, starting from 5 seconds long. The further increasing of training complexity is optional, and is totally up to your purposes.
