Carolyoga - Prana Path Breathing, alternate

Alternate Nostril

This special deep breathing affirmation builds on the practice of ordinary breathing. It can be extraordinarily cleansing. It balances the spirit and opens clogged passages and airways. See the same movie for both nostril breathing or similar full breathing. Here is a description taken from the guide to Wholeo (the stained glass dome) Breathe In pages, and modified for alternate nostril breathing:

Translation between spiral vertical spiritual energies above and horizontal human earth energies below.

The best we can know of this translation occurs in breathing. Can we draw life energy, called prana, into our bodies when we breathe? We can practice alternate nostril breathing in to the center and out to the sides, hold for eight in a circle aloft and descend for eight breathings out to rest a moment in the base bud.

To start, fix your gaze below the red vibes. As you breathe in and out, visually follow the looping paths around, up, and through each pair of chakra vibes. When looking right breathe with the right nostril. When looking left, breathe with the left nostril. At the top of the breathing cloud, in the clear sphere (disc or orb of wholeness), hold your breath. Connect with vertical spiritual energies. Allow prana or kundalini energy to permeate being. Up to the right, a detail shows rivulets of permeation (or big version). Continue alternate nostril breathing, moving your eyes on down the paths again to the base. Bring the benefit out horizontally in earth and your body. Concentrate before beginning another round of breathing.


This is alternate nostril breathing. See ordinary breathing.
