Benefits of Nadi Shodhana

By: Stacy Wiseman, RD, LDN

Nadi Shodhana, or alternate nostril breathing, is a pranayama breathing technique that is used to calm the mind, body and emotions. Research has shown that this type of breathing can have positive impacts on the autonomic nervous system resulting in decreased blood pressure and improved respiratory/lung function. It is a powerful practice to help relieve stress, anger and anxiety and can help prepare your mind for improved meditation practices.
