Many of you have asked me how to practice the psychic nadi shodhana or imagined alternate nostril breathing. Don’t feel frustrated if you tried a yoga nidra and it felt like it was tricky or didn’t make sense to you. It’s important to learn the beginner steps first and then start to work with it more in your energy body.
In this tutorial I teach step one of this pranayama, alternate nostril breathing or nadi shodhana. This breathing technique is also sometimes referred to as nadi shodhan, or anulom vilom (this version often has breath retention).
This pranayama for beginners is great for anxiety relief and I used it every morning for years to get my panic attacks under control.
