For activating Udana Vayu...
Udana Vayu is the current that flows through the upper chest - rising from collar-bones through to crown of the head - & is assisted by exhalations. It supports our mental functions such as our ability to concentrate & express, & when the Vayu is balanced, our intuition becomes more alert too.
It’s enhanced by Linga Mudra, a sacred Indian symbol with several representations, & by using this gesture, we direct the breath, awareness & energy to the neck & head, nourishing the throat, vocal chords, the brain & senses as a result.
This can subsequently bring a sense of mental clarity & better focus, facilitating the person to communicate more clearly & confidently.
5. Breath nasally, observing the flow of the breath, noticing the effects/sensations to the upper chest, throat to crown of the head
