How do you get more Natural air ( Pranayama )

Our mission is to spread the awareness on the benefits of pranayama and to help the people connect with themselves. We want to offer free yoga classes to encourage people to try yoga and fall in love with the practice.

This Sanskrit word can be broken down into “Prana” and “Ayama”. “Prana” means life force while “ayama” means to extend, simply to mean the art of learning to extend your life force through breath.

In a simple way, we can say that pranayama is a combination of systematic exhalation and inhalation.

If you practice pranayama regularly, it shows beneficial impacts upon the respiratory system, circulatory system, digestive system and endocrine system. Pranayama ensures more oxygen to the lungs and good for hearts too. Pranayama tones up kidney and controls the functions of the nervous system. 

Pranayama affects autonomic nervous system which controls heart rate, glandular secretions, respiration, digestion, and blood pressure.

Pranayama yoga must be performed in empty stomach. The best time for practice is the early morning, preferably before sunrise when the pollution is at its lowest level, and the body and brain are still free. However, if the morning is unsuitable, pranayama may be practiced after sunset, when the air is cool and pleasant. The place suitable for all kinds of Yoga must be clean and calm.

About breathing and Prana

We generally do not pay attention to how we breathe. Each of us began breathing when we were born without any previous training or experience. Our breathing reflects who we are and how we live. At times when we struggle, physically or intellectually, our breathing can become labored. Learn the powerful way of breathing in through a SUDARSHAN KRIYA With Pranayam simple yet powerful rhythmic breathing technique that de-stresses, and cleanses at the cellular level, and effectively draws you into a deep state of meditation.
