Desk Yoga: Alternate Nostril Breathing Technique (Video)

Relieve the physical and emotional stress of the work week with this balancing breathing technique.

By Jessica Kellner

Sitting at a desk all day can harm our posture, and in turn, our health. Join Jessica Kellner, the Editor-in-Chief of Mother Earth Living magazine, for a few minutes of rest and relaxation as she guides you through a new, office-friendly yoga stretch.

Today we have another breathing exercise that will help undo some of the physical and emotional stress of the work week. It's also great for built-up congestion. This technique, known as an alternate nostril breathing technique, is basically a balancing breath exercise. Continued practice of this technique relaxes the mind and body while alleviating stress. We encourage you to do five rounds of alternate breathing techniques to fully experience the benefits of this exercise. Because it's so simple, you can practice this wherever you go!
