Practice Pranayama or breathing mindfully

“The breath is an exquisite pointer to our true nature as Consciousness. The breath, like thought, is discontinuous. It comes and goes. By focusing on the pause bewtween breaths, you open to am awareness of stillness, which lies behind and between each breath and each thought. During yoga, and in the still moments of daily life, return to this basic stillness at the end of each breath, movement, and thought.” Richard C. Miller Ph.D.

Alternate Nostrel Breathing helps the mind become peaceful, calm, and happy. Performing this pranayama technique can relieve fatigue, tension, and stress by grounding your energy. And it only takes a few minutes. The Sanskrit name is Nadi Shodhana Pranayama, which translates to “subtle energy clearing breathing technique”.

Benefits:
1.Calms the mind
2.Brings the mind out of the past releasing old fears, regret, and worry by bringing your focus into the present
3.Therapeutic for the circulatory and respiratory systems
4.Stress relieving and relaxing for the body and mind
5.Helps harmonize the left and right hemispheres of the brain, which correlate to the logical and emotional sides of our personality
6.Helps purify and balance the nadis, the subtle energy channels, thereby ensuring smooth flow of prana (life force) through the body

Techinique:
1.Sit in a comfortable position and gently close your eyes
2.Place your left hand on your left knee
3.Place the tip of index finger and middle finger of the right hand in between the eyebrows with the ring finger and little finger on the left nostril, and the thumb on the right nostril. Use the ring finger to open and close the left nostril and use the thumb for the right nostril.
4.On an exhalation, close the right nostril with your thumb and breathe out through the left nostril
5.Breathe in through the left nostril and then close with the ring finger
6.Release the thumb on the right nostril and breathe out through the right nostril
7.Inhale through the right nostril, close with the thumb, release the ring finger from the left side and exhale through the left nostril. This is one round of Alternate Nostril Breath

Perform 9 rounds of this alternating breath between the nostrils. Remember to always inhale through the same nostril you just exhaled through. Allow the breath to be smooth and even without creating force or pressure. Relax into the breath and enjoy. Sit for a few minutes after performing Nadi Shodhana Pranayama and allow it to manifest in the mind and body and tune into how the practice affected you.

 Get to know your teachers: Betsy Lewis

Betsy started practicing yoga for the physical benefits and like many before her, found that she really loved the mental and spiritual benefits! Yoga calms the spirit, slows down the mind and unwinds the muscles. Anyone can benefit from the practice yoga. Her desire is to make her classes accessible to all. Betsy has studied Vinyasa style yoga, Anjali Restorative Yoga and has taken many workshops to enhance her teaching.
