“Yoga begins with listening.” [1]

We all have an inner life. Yoga is unique, specific and particular about requiring exploration of this inner life. Your inner life is truly known only to you, if you choose to seek it. Your inner life is not something anyone else can see, experience, measure, or know. Yet, as soon as we start to become aware, the power and importance of this inner life becomes central to how we experience all of our life, and can change how we are outwardly. It is healing. Yoga as a seeking, an exploration, and a cultivation of inner life, is a well-developed, multifaceted method to work with this aspect of human existence, and yoga begins with listening.

It's a hectic and contentious world but the good news is that when it comes to taking sides there is one breathing technique that actually can bring us peace by using both our nostrils in a unique way.

“Alternate Nostril Breathing” – mistakenly called “alternative nostril breathing” by some news sites – is an old and reliable way of managing stress. It is traditionally known in Sanskrit as Nadi Shodhana. ‘Nadi’ translates to channel or flow and ‘shodhana’ means cleaning or purifying. It can take as little as 2 minutes, but no more than 15, to manage hormones, stress, feelings of anxiety and depression.
