  • Nadhi Sodhona – Alternate Breathing
  • brea_alternate.GIF (21301 bytes)

    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.

            One word for Brian is Transformation! He has been on a journey from being on the top of a car in NYC having a pure Kali moment to a return trip to LA where a friend took him to his first yoga class. He plays the edges being present in all that he does taking his words deeper into meaning and experience. His work and path have merged to bring him to a place to help others from his own personal experience – service.

            I was inspired by this conversation and could of kept the interview going much longer as Brian share moe of his healing journey taking it back to the mat being able to be with himself, not in competition (with anyone including himself) and seeing that every moment is an opportunity to grow.

            Please check out his work and see the many services that Brian offers through
