Technique Physical blockage of the nose

An obvious method of changing breath flows is to put a piece of cotton wool or any other suitable material in one of the nostrils. That is, to induce flow in the right nostril the left nostril should be blocked, and conversely, to induce the flow of breath in the left nostril, the right nostril must be blocked. If you wish you can try this method, but we recommend any of the other methods as preferable, since they are less forceful. We certainly are not suggesting that you block both nostrils as a means to balance ida and pingala!
