Our breath is always with us and using it is very powerful. We love to combine breath with cacao to arrive in the 'now' with a calm mind. In this video Leonie explains the alternating nostril breath called Nadi Shodhana.
1. Prepare cacao in your own way or ritual.
2. Sit comfortably with a straight spine.
3. Balance your breathing through alternating nostrils (see video).
4. Repeat for 10-20 rounds until you feel relaxed and landed into your body.
Nadi means "channel" and Shodhana means "purification". It is a very easy and balancing technique that helps to focus, relieve stress, calm the mind and increase focus. You can use it before meditation, a presentation, working on a passion project or going to sleep (maybe skip the cacao before sleeping 😉).
What do you do to start the day with for a clear mind or to go into a meeting with your full presence?
