It harmonizes the left and right brain hemispheres, clearing the mind and enhancing concentration. Performing this exercise activates and balances the mind-body electrical systems leaving you feeling not too amped, and not too dull, but rather, just right.

Anyone with a deviated septum or nasal congestion should avoid this practice.
