Benefits of Pranayama


Pranayama ClassPranayama, the control of Prana (life force or vital energy), has tremendous benefits. The overall benefits derived from a regular practice of Pranayama greatly outweigh those derived from any other form of physical exercise, including Yoga asanas (postures). This is due to the fact that the Pranayama exercises focus on the balancing, strenghtening, and cleansing of the internal organs. The main function is to eliminate excess carbon dioxide from the body and provide a rich supply of oxygen to the blood. Which in turn invigorates the cells and tissues in our bodies. Additionally, a regular practice of Pranayama helps improve focus and concentration, which is required for meditation. The following is a natural progression:

Yoga Asanas --> Pranayama --> Meditation --> Samadhi (Self-realization)

This one, we're quick to postpone and often times, until it is too late. In an effort to help you take care of yourself, we have compiled a list of reminders. If you wish, print the list and place it in a location where you will most likely read it every day.
