Yoga Breathing is an easy and excellent way to help relieve stress and anxiety.  With so many people feeling extra pressure, stress and anxiety lately I wanted to share 3 breathing exercises that for you to tap into whenever you need to feel centered, calm or find some fire.  I will be sharing these is a 3 part series once a week for the next 3 weeks. First up is Nadi Shodhana or Alternate Nostril Breath.  Nadi Shodhana is a balancing breath.  When we feel out of balance it can often trigger anxiety,  Nadi is a Sanskrit word meaning “channel” or “flow” and shodhana means “purification.” Therefore, nadi shodhana is primarily aimed at clearing and purifying the subtle channels of the mind-body organism, while balancing its masculine and feminine aspects. This breathing technique will help bring you back to center by doing the following: 


1. Infuses the body with oxygen

2. Calms and rejuvenates the nervous system

3. Reduces stress and anxiety

4. Helps to balance hormones

5. Supports clear and balanced respiratory channels 

6. Clears and releases toxins
