Benefits of Surya Pranayam | sunawakesyou.org
Pranayam the Power of Breath
‘Prana’ refers to the universal life force and ‘ayama’ means to regulate or lengthen.
Prana is the vital energy needed by our physical and subtle layers, without which
the body would perish. It is what keeps us alive. Pranayama is the control of prana
through the breath. These techniques rely on breathing through the nostrils.
Prana flows through thousands of subtle energy channels called ‘nadis’ and energy
centers called ‘chakras’. The quantity and quality of prana and the way it flows
through the nadis and chakras determines one’s state of mind. If the Prana level is
high and its flow is continuous, smooth and steady, the mind remains calm, positive
and enthusiastic. However, due to lack of knowledge and attention to one’s breath,
the nadis and chakras in the average person may be partially or fully blocked
leading to jerky and broken flow. As a result one experiences increased worries,
fear, uncertainty, tensions, conflict and other negative qualities.
