Pranayama is a sanskrit term that refers to conscious breath practice. There are hundreds of pranayama practices that achieve a variety of benefits.
Our breath is the bridge that connects the inner and outer world. For this reason, conscious breathing is a great and efficient way to stabilize our inner world and to improve our capacity to relate to the outer world. Breathing practice can also be used effectively to improve heath, mood, emotion, and even relationships.
Pranayama is a great way to center ourselves and find balance, and also prepares us for meditation. But, with so many pranayama practices, you may be wondering, how to choose! I'm happy to offer a suggestion for you.
