Pranayama Series: E2. Nadi Shodhana Pranayama (Alternate Nostril Breathing)

This breathing technique is about cleansing the energy system to work in balance between the breathing and thought processes. It’s about bringing balance to the two basic nadis, the Ida and Pingala. As the Ida assists in functions with metal energy, digestion and regulating heat within the body, the Pingala assists in functions with cooling down heat within the body, temper and irritation.


There are separate times of the day whereby the right or left nostril may feel blocked, this is an indication that there is an imbalance between the right and left hemisphere of the brain, masculine and feminine energies and left and right-side physical bodies.


Nadi Shodhana breathing will assist in bringing balance to thought, emotion and physical energies that maybe effected due to stress, toxicity and possibly physical and mental trauma.
