Style: Pranayama Practice
Duration: 15 min
Like bhastrika (bellows breathing), surya bhedi strongly activates and expands the pranic body from the navel center. And like nadi shodhanam (alternate nostril breathing), this practice stimulates the flow of energy equally in the two master nadis, ida and pingala. Equilibrium between these two energy channels establishes the flow of sushumna, the central energy channel essential to achieving the ultimate goal of yoga: perfect absorption of the mind in the state of samadhi.
