How to do it:
Sit in any comfortable position. Curl your tongue so that the sides fold up, forming a tube, with your tongue protruding slightly from you lips while you inhale. Raise your chin as you inhale through your tongue (like a straw), feeling the cool air over the tongue. On exhalation, slightly lower your chin, place the tip of your tongue behind your front teeth, close your lips, and exhale through your nose. Continue for one to three minutes. Then inhale and hold the breath for 15 seconds. Exhale and relax.
