Alternate Nostril Breathing with Control Pause

Part 2

To provide optimal oxygen for your brain, your heart and other cells of your body, you could make the effort to learn and practise the Alternate Nostril Breathing with a ratio of 4 : 4: 4 : 4 this will eventually make you breathe slower and less. Less is more.

To practise alternate nostril breathing, use your right hand for alternating and controlling the breath flow. The thumb is used for closing and opening the right nostril and the middle finger is used for closing and opening the left nostril. One count is equal to One second.

1. Close the Right Nostril and Inhale from the Left Nostril for 4 counts.
2. Hold the Inhalation with both nostrils closed for 4 counts.
3. Remove the thumb and exhale from the right nostril for 4 counts.
4. Close both nostrils and hold the exhalation for 4 counts.
5. Remove the thumb and Inhale from the Right Nostril for 4 counts.
6. Hold the Inhalation with both nostrils closed for 4 counts.
7. Remove the finger and exhale through the Left Nostril for 4 counts.
8. Close both nostrils and hold the exhalation for 4 counts.
9. Remove the finger from the left nostril and immediately inhale from the left nostril for 4 counts. And straight
away go to 2 and continue with your alternate nostril breathing with 4 seconds control pause. Soon you will realize, the
nostril you exhaled from is the nostril you inhale from and that is all you need to remember. It will strengthen your memory.
