Empowers Effective and Efficient Breathing Pranayama is a Sanskrit word that consists of ‘prana’ and ‘ayama’. Prana means life forces and ayama means extension. Pranayama may be defined as extension of life force or pranic energy; this is achieved through various yogic techniques and exercises.
Sunrise pranayama in the fresh air is highly recommended because of less pollution and purer oxygen; the right way of breathing removes the impurities of body, the senses and the mind. Thoughts change the rhythm of breath, when a person is stressed, breathing is irregular and interrupted, and when a person is happy, the breathing is slow and rhythmic.
Zenchi Pranayama cultivates your improved breathing awareness and is the most important aspect of sustained health and feeling good. It is a practical technique of deep and slow inhalation and deep and slow exhalation that brings in more oxygen entering our bloodstream, improving all aspects of our health, including blood purification, strengthened lung capacity and increased energy and vitality as well as enhanced mental clarity and inner peace
