Pranayama - More than Breathwork

WHAT IS PRANAYAMA ?

Today, more and more people from different walks of life are opting for Yoga. In the West, Yoga is often understood as Asanas which are the poses which you'll find in sequence in Vinyasa classes. But Yoga is so much more than asanas. It's a complete lifestyle that promotes alignment within oneself, being the most authentic version of oneself and holistic health. Pranayama is one of the many Yogic practices.

Pranayama is an ancient Yogic practice of awakening and cultivating life force via specific breath techniques.

In Sanskrit, Prana means life force and Ayama means expansion. Pranayama is understood to be a tool to expand the breath. Some translate it as Prana: Life force and Yama: control therefore see the practice as controlling the breath which technically is also true. Whilst it is true that the practice utilises breath control techniques, ultimately it allows expansion of our capacity for breathing and life force energy flowing through us.

The practice involves technique where the timing, duration, and frequency of every breath and hold are sequenced differently.
