The Sun and Moon Breath is an ancient yoga technique that balances your mind and body. The moon breath (left nostril) calms your nervous system while the sun breath (right nostril) perks you up. It works wonders. Best tried while seated in a meditative and comfortable position.
1. Place your right thumb over your right nostril.
2. Close your mouth, and inhale in very deeply and very slowly through your left nostril, pause holding your breath for a couple of seconds.
3. Release your thumb and switch to covering your left nostril while exhaling steadily through your right nostril, then inhale and pause again.
4. Reverse and repeat several times. 2 inhales and 2 exhales makes one Sun moon Breath.
This will cause a physiological change in your body and brain— leaving you both revitalized and relaxed at the same time.
