Staring at a screen for along time, the chest naturally relaxes inward, restricting your breathing. These breathing exercises will introduce a rush of oxygen which will reinvigorate you if you’re tired, and the single nostril breathing is remarkably calming.
The first exercise was back-and-forth, this one is up-and-down, good to refresh circulation in the legs and get the heart pumping. Based on a Dao Yin exercise.
