As an Ayurveda advocated therapist, I would like to discuss Pranayama, an important aspect of Yoga that focuses on breath control. Pranayama is derived from two Sanskrit words – “Prana” means life force energy, and “Ayama” means extension or regulation. Pranayama is a practice that involves regulating the breath through specific techniques that can help calm the mind and promote physical and mental health.
Pranayama has been an essential part of Ayurveda for centuries, and its benefits have been documented in ancient texts. The science of Pranayama is based on the principle that breath is the primary source of prana or life force energy that flows throughout the body. By regulating the breath, one can control the flow of prana, which can positively impact physical, mental, and emotional health.
