Close the left nostril with ring diminutive finger and seize a dep breath in through acurate nostril.
At the finish of inhalation, close the true nostril with thumb and exhale out through the oposite nostril (left one).
Inhale through left one and exhale out through true in the same maner.
Repeat this cycle of inhaling and exhaling through either nostril up to 10 times.
