Prāṇāyāma (प्राणायाम, “The restraint of breath”) is a Sanskrit word referring to “your energy”. It is one of Your body is like a candle wick, and the mind is like a glow around it. Prana is the vital energy required by our physical and subtle layers, without which the body will perish. It is the prana or prana shakti inside us that nourishes the mind and keeps the body alive. Prana refers to universal life force and Ayama means regular or prolonged. Pranayama means working in the dimension of Prana.
Yoga is originally considered to be a branch of Hindu philosophy (estica), but yoga combines both physical and mental and spiritual, both ancient and modern. Yoga also teaches various physical techniques known as asanas (asanas), used for various purposes (eg. Meditation, contemplation, relaxation).
Prana creates an aura around the body. It flows through thousands of subtle energy channels called nadis and energy centers called chakras. The quantity and quality of prana and it flows through the nadis and chakras determine a state of mind.
If the soul level is high and its flow is continuous, smooth, and steady, then the mind remains calm, positive and enthusiastic. However, lack of knowledge and attention in one breath can cause partial blockage in the nadis and chakras. Unfortunately, this leads to a jerky and broken prana flow. As a result, an experience exacerbated anxieties, fears, uncertainty, tension, conflict, and other negative qualities. Each problem arises first on surfaces at the microscopic and then physical level. The illness appears in your prana (pranic body) before you become physically ill.
Ancient Indian sages knew that some breathing techniques were simple to practice and gave great comfort to the body and brain. These respiratory techniques can be practiced comfortably and empty stomach at any time of the day. Let’s know how to do pranayama one by one:

Is your mind buzzing with activity? Can’t stop thinking about what someone said about you? Find a quiet corner and try a Bhramari Pranayama (bee breath) that can put a brake on Gulzar’s mind. This breathing technique is a boon for people with high blood pressure.
Among the breathing techniques, the Kapala Bhati Pranayama (scalp polishing breathing technique) is considered to be the most important. It is also useful for detoxing the body and cleansing energy channels.
Feeling low on energy? Three rounds of Bhastrika pranayama (bellows breath) will get your energy levels soaring!
Can’t focus on the task at hand? Try the nine-minute pulse Shodan Pranayama (alternate nostril breathing technique), followed by a 10-minute meditation. Nadi Shuddh Pranayama pacifies the mind by bringing harmony between the two hemispheres of the brain.
Since Pranayama or breathing exercises deal with astral vitality, it is important to teach them by a certified yoga practitioner. Experimenting with these techniques is not appropriate.
