What you will be doing

"Pranayama is control of Breath". "Prana" is a Breath or vital energy in the body. On subtle levels, prana represents the pranic energy responsible for life or life force, and "Ayama" means control. So Pranayama is "Control of Breath". One can control the rhythms of pranic energy with pranayama and achieve a healthy body and mind. Patanjali in his text of Yoga Sutras mentioned pranayama as means of attaining higher states of awareness, he mentions the holding of breath as important practice of reaching Samadhi. Hatha Yoga also talks about 8 types of pranayama that will make the body and mind healthy. Five types of prana are responsible for various pranic activities in the body, they are Prana, Apana, Vyan, Udana & Samana. Out of these Prana and Apana are the most important. Prana is upward flowing and Apana is downward flowing. Pranayama's practice achieves balance in these pranas' activities, which results in a healthy body and mind.
