Prana means ‘life force’ and yama means to ‘restrain’ for the purpose of cultivation.
Pranayama means to manipulate the life force in your body in order to absorb more of it for mental clarity and physical vitality. Our prana travels with the breath - they are not the same thing rather the breath is the chariot for our life energy. Breathing exercises is the main way in which we can influence how much life force we have within our pranayama kosha - our energetic body.
We know exercise for the body and mind are important and our energetic self deserves the same attention and care. Practicing pranayama daily will help you to recharge and refresh your life force.
These subtle and mystical exercises are often done quickly at the beginning or at the end of a yoga class. When practiced in this way, the effects often go unnoticed. If practiced as a full sequence, daily, these odd looking breathing exercises are very powerful to help reset the autonomic nervous system.
One can manage the symptoms of autoimmune diseases like irritable bowel syndrome, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis with a daily pranayama and meditation routine.
Any illness that is stress related or exacerbated by stress also tend to benefit from these ancient cleansing and healing techniques.
