Pranayam Yoga

Pranayam Yoga is one of the eight limbs of Yoga. It is the yogic science of breath through the knowledge and control of prāṇa, that is to say the universal vital energy. This discipline consists of different breathing techniques. Indeed, the term comes from prāṇa which means "breath" and yāma which means "control".
Pranayama means "breath control".

Version française
The practice of pranayam yoga helps to master different types of inhalation and exhalation; good oxygenation allows in particular to strengthen the internal organs of the body.

Practicing pranayam yoga also helps to ease tension, release stress and act positively on vital energy.

Some of the techniques used in Pranayama

This discipline consists of different yogic breathing techniques, each of them having its own beneficial effects. Here are some examples:

Ujjayi Breathing: Ujjayi in Sanskrit means "one who is victorious". This is a deep breathing: inhale slowly by inflating first the stomach, then the diaphragm, slowly filling yourself with air up to the collarbones. This type of breathing has a particularly soothing effect.

Kapalabhati Breathing: Kapala means "skull", and bhati means "light". Inhale naturally and exhale abruptly through the nose.

Bhastrika Breathing: Bhastrika means "forge bellows" in Sanskrit. This is a series of rapid exhalations. Unlike Kapalabhati breathing, inhaling is also active.

Bhramari Breathing or "Bee Breathing": place your hands on your face with one thumb on each tragus. After a deep inhalation, exhale through the nose, vibrating the vocal cords.

Alternate breathing consists of breathing by blocking one nostril: inhale through the left, exhale through the right, then start again the other way.
