Day 9 – Extended Exhales – Unequal Ratio (Vishama Vritti)

Anytime the inhalation and exhalation are different durations this is known as Unequal Ratio (Vishama Vritti). Vishama means ‘uneven, irregular, or dissimilar.’ When the exhalations are longer than the inhalations it tones the vagus nerve and balances the nervous system. It also strengthens our ability to detach and let go in a positive way.
