Pranayama: Nadi Shodhana

Pradeep Teotia

Enjoy this practice of Alternate Nostril Breathing, also known as either Nadi Shodhana or Anuloma Viloma. Yogic breathing consists of 3 parts: proper inhalation, retention and proper exhalation. One of the main benefits of this pranayama practice is that it purifies the nadis and promotes the flow of prana.

The increased intake of fresh oxygen saturates the body with an abundance of life-force, resulting in greater vitality, endurance, stamina and strength. Moreover, the conscious control of the breath in slow and steady intervals promotes a sense of serenity, increases the creative powers of the mind and equalizes the flow of energy. As a result, the nadis of the astral body stay pure, unimpeded and clear.

Another main benefit is balance and natural rhythm and immediately feeling a sense of calm and serenity. It’s a wonderful way to start the day on a good note or calm the nerves before an important event.
