    1. Close the right nostril with your right thumb and inhale through the left nostril. Do this to the count of four seconds.
    2. Immediately close the left nostril with your right ring finger and little finger, and at the same time remove your thumb from the right nostril, and exhale through this nostril. Do this to the count of eight seconds. This completes a half round.
    3. Inhale through the right nostril to the count of four seconds. Close the right nostril with your right thumb and exhale through the left nostril to the count of eight seconds. This completes one full round.

    Start by doing three rounds, adding one per week until you are doing seven rounds.

    Alternate nostril breathing should not be practiced if you have a cold or if your nasal passages are blocked in any way. Forced breathing through the nose may lead to complications. In pranayama it is important to follow this rule: under no circumstances should anything be forced. If you use the nostrils for breath control they must be unobstructed. If they are not, you must practice throat breathing.

After many days of asking myself this question I realized that I wish to be a compassionate person who is loving and understanding towards others. This was a big choice for me. After a fews days of practicing this I have seen more ease with my relationships to others. If we choose to ask this first then take action we are able to be more responsible yogi’s.

Funny enough I did not know Harry Potter was releasing #7 this weekend.. I guess the energy was embedded as there are so many things we have yet to see in ourselves and the world. While working to produce a NEW!! YOGA PODCAST called, Mudra Moments this week I found new features in wordpress which allowed me to add color to my posts..and what made me laugh is that it was pretty much always there but neither Elsie (congrats elsie for podcast 411 interview) or I saw it.

Notice in your life if you are not seeing that is right in front of you and send me an email to share hillaryrubin1@gmail.com.
