Pranayama: Conscious Breathing for the Body and Soul

Tradition, Technique and Science

Pracchardanvidharanabhyam va pranasya

As the vital force of energy (prana) required for one’s existence,
the very purpose of Pranayama is attaining a pristine mind.

– Patanjali Yogasutra, I.34

What:

As an ancient and popular Yoga practice, Pranayama finds mention in Vedic literature, Patanjali’s Yogasutras, and Hatha Yoga texts. Classification of traditional Ashtanga Yoga recommends the practice of Pranayama, as one of the eight limbs of Yoga (The Yamas and Niyamas). Being the fourth limb, it refers to the conscious control or regulation of one’s breath for purifying the body and cleansing the mind. 

Welcome to an enlightening journey towards holistic well-being through the ancient art of Pranayama. Join us at Kaivalyadhama’s highly successful online workshop, where the acclaimed instructor, Sandhya Dixit, guides you on a transformative path of conscious breathing and self-discovery.

Pranayama, as an integral part of the yogic tradition, has been documented in Vedic literature, Patanjali’s Yogasutras, and Hatha Yoga texts. In the Ashtanga Yoga system, Pranayama stands as the fourth limb, emphasizing the conscious control and regulation of breath. This practice is not just a physical exercise but a profound journey towards purifying the body and cleansing the mind.

What:

As an ancient and popular Yoga practice, Pranayama finds mention in Vedic literature, Patanjali’s Yogasutras, and Hatha Yoga texts. Classification of traditional Ashtanga Yoga recommends the practice of Pranayama, as one of the eight limbs of Yoga (The Yamas and Niyamas). Being the fourth limb, it refers to the conscious control or regulation of one’s breath for purifying the body and cleansing the mind. 

Regular and disciplined practice of Pranayama yields a myriad of benefits, fostering immense positivity, increased clarity, renewed vigor, and heightened inner awareness across emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. By channelling energy through the right pathways and tapping into deeper dimensions, Pranayama acts as a purifier, eliminating toxins, inducing relaxation, and boosting immunity.

Why

  • Yoga stimulates the body, mind, and soul for achieving cosmic balance.
  • As a critical component of Yoga involving the nervous system, Pranayama teaches the art of respiratory rhythm and movement for achieving this harmony.
  • Regular and disciplined practice of Pranayama can bring immense positivity, increased clarity, renewed vigour, and heightened inner awareness in overall emotion, thought, and behaviour.
  • By steering the right energy channels and deeper dimensions, it ensures the removal of toxins, facilitates relaxation, and boosts immunity.
  • Apart from being therapeutic, Pranayama enhances one’s ability to focus, meditate, and concentrate.
  • It is also known to be one of the prerequisites for achieving ultimate knowledge and self-realisation.

How

  • The essence of Pranayama is in controlled inhalation, retention, and controlled exhalation of the breath.
  • Pranayama extends and empowers the Prana, and further revitalises and soothes this vital energy for the body to harness it.
  • Best achieved by following the appropriate posture and technique, Pranayama helps a Yogic practitioner to control and change the timing and length of the breath as required.
  • This Pranayama workshop by Kaivalyadhama – one of the oldest Yoga Institutes in the world, blends theory, chanting, and experiential knowledge to be conducted in three consecutive series over a period of 3 months.
  • The course curriculum focuses on the science and methods of Inhalation and Exhalation, as alterations to regular breathing.
  • With in-depth insights into Pranayama from a highly experienced Yoga master, each series will cover both the pre-requisites and preparatory practices for the practice of Pranayama.
