samdhaana yoga breathing techniques

Alternate Nostril Breath (or Nadi Shodhana) is a breath technique, or pranayama, utilized to calm the mind, remove toxins, rejuvenate the nervous system, and set to balance the energy in the body and its impact on right and left sides of the body, as well as restoring balance in the left and right hemispheres of the brain. Done here in the primitive format, one can send healing energy to the right side of the body and the left side of the body while helping to clear each nadi or energy pathway that governs the right and left side of the body. This video explains and demonstrates how to do Alternate Nostril Breath. Written instructions for Alternate Nostril Breath are available here. If you are already familiar with it, you may want to view the video below (Do Alternate Nostril Breath) instead.

Duration: Approximately 5 minutes
