we breathe provides a window into your current energetic state. Simple
breathing (Pranayama) practices can function as tonics to invite calm
and equilibrium. Before you start you should take a moment to check in
with yourself. Become aware of how you are breathing, how each
inhalation and exhalation feels.
Nadi Shodhana Pranayama
This is a great breathing technique that relaxes your body and mind while boosting your alertness.
Curl your right ring finger and pinky fingers into your palm.
Join your middle and index fingers and point your thumb upright.
Rest your left hand on your thigh.
Gently press the extended two fingers to seal off the left nostril as you inhale for 4 counts through the right nostril.
Close your right nostril by pressing down with your thumb, releasing the left nostril as you exhale out of it for 4 counts.
Close the left nostril, open the right, and breathe out of it for a count of 4. Practice 4 - 6 rounds.
