Nadi Shodhana breathing exercise
Jan 25, 20
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?
