Mental Alternate Nostril Breath

Nadi shodhana  or Alternate Nostril breathing helps balances the left and right hemispheres of the brain. 

This breath requires you to direct your focus and awareness mentally through each nostril. We start on the left side and imagine breathing in through only the left nostril up to the 3rd eye. Then from the 3rd eye out of the right nostril only. Then in the right nostril to the third eye and out from the 3rd eye through the left nostril. This is one round. We repeat 4 rounds then 1 breath through both nostrils. Then repeat 4 more rounds and then end breathing through both nostrils.
