Pranayama: Alternate Nostril breathing practice
Alternate nostril breathing: balancing the body
Pranayama is an ancient technique used to improve the quality of our breathing and, ultimately, of our lives.
Respiration fuels the burning of oxygen and glucose, producing energy to power every muscular contraction, glandular secretion and mental process.
In modern society, most people breathe incorrectly, using only a small part of their lung capacity.
Rhythmic, deep and slow respiration stimulates and is stimulated by calm & content states of mind.
Irregular breathing disrupts the rhythms of the brain and leads to physical, emotional and mental blocks. These bring about inner conflicts, an unbalanced personality, a disordered lifestyle and diseases.
Pranayama establishes regular breathing patterns, breaking this negative cycle and reversing the debilitating process. It does so by giving us control of the breath and re-establishing the natural, relaxed rhythms of body and mind.
In this video you will learn how to safely practice the Alternate Nostril breathing technique & will practice a sequence of 5 cycles that can be used first thing in the morning or in the evening as part of your healthy routine.
