The alternate-nostril breathing technique, also known as nadhi shodhana, requires you to breathe air in one nostril and out the other. This balancing breath helps bring the body back to equilibrium, steadily eradicates tension, and calms the mind as you focus on the inhales and exhales. In this video Sonima founder Sonia Jones sits down with yoga master Sharath Jois to demonstrate the technique.
