You may practice this meditation while sitting on a chair. If you do sit on a chair, be sure to place both feet flat on the floor, with the weight distributed evenly between them. The back and spine should be held as straight as possible.
Place the hands on the lap, the right hand resting on the left. The eyes are looking down the face, held about one-tenth of the way open.
Now, inhale through the left nostril and exhale through the right nostril. Do not move the nose, but consciously direct the air through the desited pathway.
Continue for eleven minutes. Then, inhale deeply, hold the breath briefly, exhale, and relax a minute or two to readapt to your surroundings.
