This alternative nostril breathing exercise was made to increase your focus, awareness, and lung function. Perfect for those times when you need to concentrate for extended periods of time.

Mechanics: Use your index finger or thumb to fully close either your left or right nostril. Every exhale you switch nostrils from the one you inhaled from. __WARNING__ *For your safety, we recommend practicing breathwork while sitting or lying down. If you feel lightheaded, please stop immediately. Do not practice while driving or in water.*

Using the Focus breath


This exercise works by activating your parasympathetic nervous system, which reduces stress and blood pressure, while also increasing awareness and respiratory endurance. It also helps balance the levels of oxygen in each nasal cavity, which can lead to more clarity.
