I have heard of Swami Ramdevji, but never knew much about his practice, he sounds great from what you are saying.
I used to do pranayam everyday, but life changed a bit and I lost my routine! :(
I think I will start to get back into it again. The one I described yesterday was Sitali pranayama, I had never done it (or heard of it) before, but I used to do all the ones you describe, and a couple of others I never knew the names of that my yoga teacher taught me. They were variations on Anulom-Vilom.
Since my yoga teacher left town, I have been very lazy about things, I wish he was still here! I don't really trust any of the others I have seen here.
