Hi Kreg,

I really enjoyed this segment. I was wondering whether you think it is a good practice during pregnancy, clearing the mind, giving me some needed energy before the day and possibly sending some good oxygen to little one....or maybe would you recommend any other breathing segment you might have that you think might be even better? Thanks. :)

Hi ME98SSR. Thank you very much for your message. Regarding your question about this practice, no, I do not recommend this specific one for you right now since you are pregnant. The vigorous nature of the breath work and breath retention is typical considered contraindicating during pregnancy. Another practice like the following may be more suitable:

Hi Kreg,

Thank you for your reply. I obviously did not read the description properly in my eagerness to start. I saw that it was not suitable for pregnancy down the bottom. Thank you for the appropriate link.

This gives me surge of energy I need in the mornings! The clarity, focus and energy that comes from doing this breath work replaces the "need" for coffee. I would recommend doing this in the morning or right before a mentally draining task. Namaste.

Hi Xaxier, Thank you very much for your comments on this video. You could definitely start the second nostril breathing on left if you are focussing on pure energetic 'balance'. Some people may prefer to follow the alternate nostril 'philosophy' where you start on the right in the mornings and start left in the evenings. My approach/philosophy: just go with your inherent flow :) Namaste, Kreg

Yaxier, posted on April 27, 2012

Kreg, I appreciated that we switched the arm related breathing to balance, but I wonder, why didn't we switch to breathing into the left nostril first, after having done a breath into the right one on the first go?
I wonder if this is part of the activation aspect of this practice?

kregweiss, posted on April 25, 2012

Warm thanks everyone for trying this breathing practice - this can be a great practice to do before doing a warming yoga flow. Namaste, Kreg

Kreg, I really like the combination of alternating Anuloma Viloma with the spinal the first two breathing exercises you demonstrate have a sanskrit name? Namaste x
