Channel cleansing breath relieves stress, calms the mind and promotes mental clarity. According to Ayurvedic theory, it will also cleanse and balance the nadis so that prana can flow more freely and evenly through the chakras.
Some of the physical benefits of the practice include:
- Strengthens respiratory system
- Boosts immunity
- Promotes circulation
- Promotes flow of energy
Channel cleaning breath can be practiced at the beginning or end of a yoga sequence.
