  1. Yoga has always been integral part of Indian Sciences, I have started practicing the same and taking Immune Booster Capsule from Planet Ayurveda, helping me a lot.

  2. The simha kriya practice as demonstrated by the lady and Sadhguru differ. She maintains her arms lifting her rib cage whilst holding her breath, Sadhguru does not.

  3. Sadhguru this breath only good when air is good , to be part of the planet and one and make clean lungs..
    But when the air is sick. This breath no good .
    You will spread you illness worse into the air like this. Be careful if U have covid.

  4. To everyone who is experiencing a difficult situation:
    To shoot an arrow you have to pull it backwards. So when life drags you back with some troubles, it means it's going to launch into something better.
