Lately in sessions and in my own meditation practice I have been called towards a practice called Nadi Shodhana, or “alternate nostril breathing”. This is a simple but powerful breathing technique that can help us focus our mind especially when we are feeling frazzled as well as:
Find a comfortable seated position and take your right thumb and pinky finger on either side of your right and left nostril. Then place your index finder and middle finger lightly between your eyebrows. On the inhale breath you will close the left nostril with our pinky finger and inhale through your right nostril. Then on the exhale breath you will close the right nostril with our thumb and exhale through the left nostril. Repeating this process 5-10 times. Then switch. Inhaling through left nostril and exhaling through the right nostril. Repeating the processed 5-10 times matching whatever you did the opposite side. From there all your hand to drop taking a deep breath in and slow exhale out, allowing your breath to return to its natural rhythm.
