Pranayama is one of the most renowned ancient and popular practices of yoga. Its existence dates back to the ancient scriptures like Patanjali Yoga sutra written in 200 B.C. It encompasses one of the most crucial steps of the Ashtanga Yoga. Pranayama is both traditional and scientific technique which balances the mind, body, emotions and the soul ultimately. Its therapeutic benefits have been gaining popularity all over the world, encouraging people from different professions to practice and master the art of Pranayama.
Yoga is an art of establishing “harmony between individual existences with cosmic existence” and Pranayama is an application of this “art” through which one develops an awareness of one’s Prana (vital life force). The soul of Pranayama lays in controlled inhalation, retention and controlled exhalation of the breath. It not only extends and empowers the Prana, but it also refreshes and soothes the vital energy so that the body can harness it.
This is for those with the time and volition to dive deep into the wonders and healing benefits of Pranayam.
