Efficacy of Pranayam as propagated by Swami Ramdev

In Health, Yoga on May 16, 2010 at 3:53 pm

Accidently , in the year 2001, I happened to  tune into  a TV channel where a young looking, saffron clad, bearded  Swamiji was preaching breathing exercises & yoga. I watched his programme for 2-3 minutes and switched but his confidence & belief in what he was teaching left an imprint.

I remained busy with my regular military regimen and totally forgot about Swamiji and his teachings till 2003 when got  posted to Srinagar (J&K). By that time Swamiji had gained popularity and become a familiar face on tube.

I started practising Pranayam as taught by baba Ramdev, regularly. Though I was and am physically fit without any kind of medical problems, I experienced enhanced energy levels, better work output and overall high  feel good coefficient. To be very frank I have not experienced any miraculous effects like removal of specs etc. inspite of regular practise but am of firm opinion that it keeps you healthy, mentally fit, alert and energetic.

Incase you have not picked up Pranayam till now , do give it a try. If you are already practising it, then let us share the experiences.
