Starting your Moday on a positive note!
Balance Tip from Ramon Kinkel
The Right nostril is called Pingala Nadi (sun principle or the body) ,the left nostril represents Ida Nadi (moon principle or the mind). In alternate nostril breathing, one inhales through right and exhales through left, then inhales through left and exhales through right. This purifies the Ida and the Pingala Nadis. This purification brings balance to body and mind. Metabolic processes will be balanced.
The purpose of the Alternate Nostril Breathing is to balance the physical energy and the mental energy. It is recommended for all types of problems. As Hatha Yoga principle says that the health conditions are due to imbalance between this Ida and Pingala. Alternate Nostril Breathing balances this two forces.
Benefits of the exercise are:
Excellent breathing technique to calm and center the mind.
Our mind has a tendency to keep regretting or glorifying the past and getting anxious about the future. Nadi Shodhan pranayama helps to bring the mind back to the present moment.
Works therapeutically for most circulatory and respiratory problems.
Releases accumulated stress in the mind and body effectively and helps relax.
Helps harmonize the left and right hemispheres of the brain, which correlate to the logical and emotional sides of our personality.
Helps purify and balance the nadis - the subtle energy channels, thereby ensuring smooth flow of prana (life force) through the body.
Maintains body temperature.
