Alternate nostril breathing can be safely practiced by everyone. During the current season, it helps still and calm the mind as the energy of movement swirls around us. You can build toward breath retention by joining in the first 5 rounds for a few days, before transitioning to the full 10 rounds.

Alternate nostril breathing or anuloma viloma is a specific technique that allows us to control our breathing. Studies have shown that daily practice improves lung function and endurance, as well as sinus inflammation. It has a positive impact on cardiovascular function, lowering blood pressure and heart rate. Randomized control trials have revealed that pranayama or breathing exercises improve general wellbeing, cognition and anxiety.
