Neena Gupta has been giving us glimpses of her yoga sessions lately to show what keeps her fit.

The Sach Kahun Toh author recently inspired us by pulling off Rocking Dhanurasana or Bow Pose. In her latest Instagram post, the 62-year-old is seen performing a pranayam in a video.

This is known as Bhramari pranayama or bumblebee breath. This is a calming breathing practice in which you make an audible humming sound while closing your eyes and ears. This practice is known to be especially helpful in blocking out external distractions for those who are new to meditation or have a hard time doing it, according to

Here’s how you can perform Bhramari breathing:

*Sit in a comfortable position. One usually sits straight with the legs crossed.

*Lower your gaze and close your eyes. Breathe in and out of your nose. Relax your face and body. Keep your mouth gently closed.

*With your thumbs, close your ears. Now place both index fingers on the forehead, right above the eyebrows. Rest the middle and ring fingers on the eyes.

*Take a deep breath. While exhaling, make a humming sound. Repeat the process.
