Ayurvedic Pranayama techniques offer us the tools to prevent stagnation, maximize our breathing potential, and connect to our vital life force, or prana; the pulsation of cosmic consciousness. The translation of prana from Sanskrit, means “that which travels well”, however it is a force we can only perceive through experience. Pranayama are exercises to restore and purify not only our physical bodies through the respiratory system, but also our energetic and emotional bodies.
