BLiSS Ann Green Yoga Studio was recently featured in a Reader’s Digest article entitled
“How to Beat the Mid-Afternoon Slump Without Caffeine—According to Yoga Instructors”
Here is an excerpt from the article
“Rev Up With Alternate Nostril Breathing
When you find you lack focus, try this mindful breathing technique, suggests Ann Green, founder and director of BLiSS Ann Green Yoga Studio and owner of SHiNE OM Yoga. With your right hand, bring your pointer finger and middle finger to rest between your eyebrows, and get ready to use your thumb and ring finger. With your hands in the hang ten or call me position, close your eyes and take a deep breath in and out through your nose and close your right nostril with your right thumb. Then, inhale through the left nostril slowly and steadily, then close off your left nostril (so both are closed) and hold the breath in for a second or two. Then, open your right nostril and release the breath slowly through the right side. Repeat this for a total of one minute or about six rounds of inhalation and exhalation.”
