Alternate Nostril Breathing
Return to Center - Accessible Yoga & Mindfulness with Lisa Pollard
Alternate nostril breathing is also known as Nadi Shodana. This breathing practice or pranayama stretches the breath, nadi meaning channel, and shodana meaning purification. This practice is aimed at cleaning or purifying the mind-body. It is suitable for anyone, as it is gentle and has a pacifying or calming effect on the nervous system. Alternate nostril breathing infuses the body with oxygen, releases toxins, stress & anxiety, and also supports balance and concentration. This practice can be helpful if you are feeling agitated or would like to invite mental clarity. Your breath must remain gentle and slow, inviting ease throughout your body. I hope you can enjoy this practice and feel the benefits daily.
