Breath, life and energy are all intrinsically connected and in yoga this connection is called Prana. Pranayama is the control of Prana which helps increase vitality and mental focus whilst expanding our consciousness.
Conscious breathing brings oxygen and energy to our cells, enhancing all cellular processes which allows our bodies to grow and heal.
Our breathing alters depending on our mood and our psychological state can be altered by changes in our breath. By exploring Pranayama practices we can observe how deeply connected our breath is to our mind.
