Take any comfortable seat. So get in a comfortable position. Relax yourself. Take a few breaths. And just get calm and centered.

We use the right hand here. Take the right thumb and block off the right nostril. Breathe in through the left, out through the left, in through the left, and then breathe out through the right. At the same time, block your left nostril with your ring finger.

So think, exhale, inhale, switch. Blocking off the left nostril, exhale through the right. Inhale through the right. Switch to the other side. Use the thumb to block the right nostril. Exhale. Inhale. Switch. Exhale. Inhale. Switch.

And continue for as long as you like. Just think of exhale, inhale, switch. When you feel complete, just rest your hand. Just gently breathe a few times through the nose. Inhale through the nose, exhale through the nose, and notice how you feel after taking this calming breath.
