Nadi Shodhana- Alternate nostril breathing

‘Nadi’ meaning river and refers to the energy channels in the body and ‘shodhana’ means purifying. This pranayama exercise cleanses the energy channels and brings the body back into a state of balance. The ‘ida’ the lunar channel in the left nostril connects to the right side of the brain and the ‘pingala’ the solar channel in the right nostril connects to the left side of the brain. In this exercise we are working with the ‘ida’ and the ‘pingala’ to feed both sides of the brain which in turn control every activity.
