Nostril breathing

by Jan

I find that nostril breathing is relaxing but at the same time sort of energizes me.

I inhale and exhale through one nostril while I close the other nostril.

I then move over to the other nostril and do the same thing.

When I inhale through one nostril I do it for 4 counts, then hold for 4 counts and exhale for 8 counts.

I do this for about 8 repetitions each nostril and find it pretty good.
