This ancient yogic technique, also known as alternate nostril breathing, has been practiced in India for centuries. It is a type of pranayama, or breath control exercise, that helps to bring balance and harmony to the mind and body. In this blog post, we will discuss what Anulom Vilom is and why it is beneficial for patients.
What is Anulom Vilom?
Anulom Vilom is an ancient yogic practice that dates back centuries in India. The word “Anuloma” means “with the grain” or “natural order” while “Viloma” means “against the grain”. Together, they make up a breathing technique that involves alternating between your left and right nostrils while controlling your breath. Benefits of Anulom Vilom Anulom vilom has many benefits for patients including reducing stress, improving sleep quality, increasing concentration, calming the mind and body, easing depression and anxiety symptoms, strengthening the respiratory system and much more. There are also physical benefits such as improved digestion and circulation due to increased oxygen intake. Furthermore, it can help regulate hormones which can reduce inflammation in the body. How To Practice Anulonm Vilonm It is important to start slow when practicing Anulonm vilonm as it can be quite challenging at first. Start by sitting comfortably with your spine straight in a chair or on the floor with crossed legs if possible. Place your left hand on your knee or lap with your palm facing up. Then close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to calm yourself down before beginning the exercise. Bring your right hand up to your nose so that you can block off one nostril at a time by using either your thumb or index finger depending on which side you’re working with. Once you have blocked off one nostril, inhale slowly through the other nostril before switching sides without exhaling first and repeat this process for several minutes until you feel relaxed enough to stop.
Overall, alternate nostril breathing is an incredibly powerful practice that has both mental and physical benefits for patients. It allows us to take control of our breath which then leads us towards greater relaxation as well as improved physical health by regulating hormones and increasing oxygen levels in our bodies.
