If you're having issues with the player:

This pranayama yoga class calms the nervous system using a series of yoga breathing exercises, including deep breathing (diaphragmatic breathing) - which combines the belly, mid-chest and upper chest breaths - and alternate nostril breathing, or Anulom Vilom. The alternate nostril breath is a challenging breathing technique, so don't be surprised if you find it difficult the first few times. This class is great to do before bed or when you need to relax.

Equipment: None
Style: Gentle Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Pranayama Yoga/Pranayama Yoga, Yoga for Anxiety Stress

I really don't enjoy the feeling of gasping for air because my lungs aren't well trained. Very intense

I see some improvement in the length of time I can inhale and exhale, but I find it stressful rather than calming.

Started out great but laying on one's back (a suggested possibility) doesn't allow you to watch the alternate nostril breathing and ultimately the class gave me a headache. :(

I am starting to control my breath a bit more, and understand how it helps my posture, asanas...but found the 12 seconds breath very difficult. Will keep on trying.

Beautiful. Feeling very calmed and energized at the same time. The outdoor setting for the video makes it feel like a short vacation!
