Pranayama - The Art of Breathing

Pranayama is the extension of vital force energy within the body, which supports health and longevity. Pranayama is the breathing practice of yoga and is that the disciplining of our vital force energy, to get rid of blockages within our physical and energetic system, to clear illness and pain, and ignite the spine to assist regulate the nervous systems, in order that we may achieve higher states of consciousness and awareness. Understanding and controlling prana is the key to health mind/body balance. Conscious breath control is the key to realizing the advantages of asana because it brings us into a deeper reference to our inner self.

“Prana” is that the subtle energy or vital force that links matter and spirit, the astral and thus the physical. This vital energy or vital force, located within the body’s nadis or energy channels, is altogether life forms and is central to all or any or any or any yoga practices. Prana could even be a subtle force of energy carried in food, air, water, sunlight, the atmospheres we spend time in, the people we surround ourselves with, and it animates all types of matter.

“Ayama” means extension, expansion, to stretch, lengthen, prolong, regulate.
