Guided Nadi Shodhana Practice

Year Long Meditation

Nadi shodhana—alternate nostril breathing—is the primary practice for clearing the energy channels (nadis) of impurities that might impede concentration. Sandra Anderson guides this cleansing pranayama, which involves inhaling and exhaling through one nostril at a time. Experience how opening the flow of energy along the nadis helps you calm and strengthen your nervous system and deepen self-awareness—making it an excellent preparation for meditation.
