This paper discusses the practice of Nadi Shodana, a type of Pranayana restorative breathing technique. The purpose of Nadi Shodhana is to clean and purify the channels. These channels are a part of the subtle body. In the Yoga tradition it is said there are over 72,000 nadis. Today I will be addressing 2 of the 3 main nadi’s which are the Ida & Pingala. Research has shown the practice of Nadi Shodhana imposes a rhythm on the brain and the nadis, over the irregular state that often exists in our body’s, thus affecting the brainwaves by superimposing a regular sine wave over the normal irregular brain activity, bringing the irregularities of the mental process and, eventually, the autonomous body rhythms back into harmony-simply by the use of this conscious rhythmic breathing.
