Prana means life force or energy.
When our body and / or mind is in a negative state – sick, weak, without energy, with tension – this is representative of lack of prana – vitality.
It is possible to raise the level of our prana through the practice of Pranayama.
Pranayama means extension of life and we can translate in a very simplified way as exercises and breathing techniques that facilitate the increase of vitality.
The optimal functioning of the glands in our body depends on the number of times we breathe per minute. The more times we breathe per minute, the more quickly we exhaust the functioning of the glands. Through the continuous practice of Pranayama we learn and train ourselves to take slower and deeper breaths.
When we practice Pranayama with dedication our mind reaches a certain level of maturity making us less vulnerable to emotional disturbances.
