Pranayama Nadi Shodhana Stage

Nadi shodhana pranayama stage 1 should be continued1, but now it can be supplemented by the second stage of nadi shodhana. This practice is also commonly known as nikha poorvaka (simple preliminary practice) and bhal bhati (forehead bellows). In English this practice can be called the alternate nostril pranayama, for air is inhaled through one nostril and exhaled through the other.
