RESTORATIVE PRANAYAMA

“PRANAYAMA TEACHES THE ASPIRANT (STUDENT) TO REGULATE THEIR BREATHING AND THEREBY CONTROL THE MIND” BKS IYENGAR.

PRANAYAMA IS THE STUDY OF THE DYNAMICS OF THE BREATH IN RELATION TO THE EXPERIENCE OF HATHA YOGA. ALTHOUGH IT IS PRACTICED SEPARATELY, THE DISCIPLINE GAINED IN ASANA IS IMPORTANT TO THE UNDERSTANDING OF PRANAYAMA. "PRANAYAMA IS CONTROL OF BREATH”. PRANA IS BREATH OR VITAL ENERGY IN THE BODY. ON SUBTLE LEVELS PRANA REPRESENTS THE PRANIC ENERGY RESPONSIBLE FOR LIFE OR LIFE FORCE, AND AYAMA MEANS CONTROL, SO PRANAYAMA IS CONTROL OF BREATH. IN OUR PRESENT TIME, THE REDUCTION OF ANXIETY AND STRESS HAS GIVEN PRANAYAMA A NEW AND EXCITING ADDITION TO OUR LIVES.
