Soothing Left Nostril Breathing

Breathing through the left nostril Increases lunar energy, the cleansing, cooling, receptive, calming, sensitive, empathic energy of the moon.

When you are feeling overanxious and nervous, sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine. Block the right nostril with the thumb of the right hand. Keep the other fingers straight up like antennae. Take 26 long, deep, and complete breaths through the left nostril. Then inhale and relax. This will soothe you and bring you to a calm state.
