Our breath and mind are closely related. The state of our mind affects our breath and vice versa. By training our breath we can still our mind, quieten our senses. Breath is life. It is fundamental to every action. In every day life, practicing Pranayama helps lowering our stress and anxiety level therefore the mind is free to make better decisions.
Yoga regards Prana (breath) as the most powerful healing energy which we absorb from the atmosphere through our natural breathing process. Every inhalation is inspiration, and every exhalation is our surrender.
