Breathing is the key to life!
“Be aware of your breathing. Notice how this takes attention away from your thinking and creates spaces”. Eckhart Tolle
Pranayama, the ancient science of breath control.
Prana is the life force or energy that pervades the universe, it is in all things, animate or inanimate. The body and mind work through the prana and breathing conciously, is the most direct way to absorb prana.
Pranayama comprises various respiratory techniques that improves the absorption of oxygen and eliminates carbon dioxide, increasing the vital energy (prana), cleans energy channels (Nadhis and Chakras) and stimulates the pranic flow. They also provide mental calm and clarity and can reach deeper levels of consciousness.
The effects of this practice creates a balance between the physical body, mind and vital energy. Breathing and the mind are closely linked. The status of one directly affects the other. When the breath comes and goes the mind is restless, when the breath is calm, so is the mind.
“Pranayama is the link between mind and physical discipline. While the action is physical, the effect is to make the mind more calm, lucid and quiet”. Swami Vishnudevananda
