According to the ancient scriptures yoga considered not only as asana practice but a union between body and mind. When we say in India “we are practicing yoga” we suppose to do all  – pranayama, asana, mantra and meditation.

Pranayama can’t be separated from Asana or Meditation or mantra, why? Because the main purpose of pranayama as  yoga itself – is getting bliss or liberation for the mind. Normalisation of breath, increasing  the time of  spontaneous retention and at least entering in meditative state – that is the goal of Pranayama.

“Long breath – long life, short breath – short life”, – developing correct breath not only calms mind but also helps to cure some common diseases. We use pranayama as a tool during  meditation, asana, mantra.   Because people are different, everyone can find his /her suitable tool how to enter in deeper state of meditation. Our classes made by the way so you can try all main tools of yoga and master those practices that leads in your case in deeper state of concentration.

``Short breath - short life, long breath - long life`` - Dr. S.K Pandey
