Full Description

The natural potential of our breath has long been restricted. Few of us ever know what it means to use the full capacity of our lungs. Fewer still to use it freely, effortlessly and regularly. Tension in the throat, tension in the chest, tension in our diaphragm, tension in our abdomen all conspire to inhibit our breathing. Pranayama is a process of releasing our breath from these tensions.
Our breath is intimately connected to our minds, feelings and our thoughts. This relationship works both ways. The quality of our breathing affects our minds, feelings and thoughts; and the quality of our thoughts, minds and feelings will impact upon our breath. Freeing our breath through subtle practices of Pranayama will release a lot of negative pressure in our minds, feelings and thought, and also prepare us to deal with the necessary ups and downs that life naturally brings upon us.

Pranayama is one of the most central yoga practices, marking the fourth of the eight limbs of classical yoga.
