Langhana: Yoga Practice for Calming Energetic Effect

June 27, 2013    BY Karina Mirsky

This yoga practice is great to do in the evening, before bed, to relieve stress, prepare for meditation, when you’re feeling restless, and/or to pacify vata dosha. The culmination of this practice is a calming energetic effect (langhana), helping the mind and body to experience a deeper stillness. Includes chanting, forward bends, long-holding postures, and lengthening the exhalation, and concludes with a deep relaxation and nadi shodhanam (alternate nostril breathing). Props: yoga blocks (2) and blanket.
