Cultivate Clarity and Soothe Your Nerves

How 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.
