This guided meditation teaches alternate side breathing, a way for focusing attention, getting present, and using both hemispheres of the brain for increased brain coherence.

Interesting Experience
Cassandra guides you to first just focus on breathing through your nostrils. As my focus went there, it felt weird at first like my eyes were cross eyed. I could feel the sensation of my nostrils flaring in and out which was a neat sensation. Then Cassandra guides you to just focus on breathing through your left nostril. And, then visualize breathing through your left foot back up to your left nostril. After a few times focusing on my left side, I felt a deeper heaviness on that side. Switching to focus on my right side, I felt my breath was light as well as a tingling sensation in my foot. As this session comes to a close, focusing on breathing through both sides of your body which gave me a feeling like waves washing over me. I am feeling refreshed. This would be a great session for anyone that is having a hard time just focusing on the breath.

I found it bizarrely interesting how easily I could focus my attention whatever was instructed. Helpful meditation for isolating senses.
