10-hour Pranayama Teacher Training
Pranayama is the fourth limb in Patanjali’s 8 limbs. Pranayama refers to different breathing exercises which clear physical and emotional obstacles in the body. Pranayama is derived from the two Sanskrit words ‘prana’ and ‘yama’. ‘Prana’ is life energy or life force while ‘yama’ is restraint or control. Therefore, pranayama would mean controlling of the life energy. The breathing exercises are meant to free the breath so the prana can flow freely.
