It is surely yogis’ best-shared secret that breathwork is key to being present and renewing vitality. The power of meditative breath is profound, as it can activate your parasympathetic nervous system to alleviate ailments caused by depression and chronic stress.
Allow your breath to be your guide to encourage wellness at different stages of your day.
Alternate Nostril Breathing (Nadi Shodhana Pranayama)
For creativity, concentration, and encouraging balance
With your right hand, close your right nostril with your thumb and inhale through your left nostril. Then exhale and inhale through your right nostril by closing your left nostril with your index finger. Release your left nostril, and close your right nostril. Exhale and inhale through your left nostril. Repeat for several cycles.
Breathing through your right nostril activates the brain’s left hemisphere, the logic governing side of your brain, while breathing through the left stimulates the right side, the creative side of your brain. This exercise calms your heartbeat and encourages balance.
