Breath Becomes Life:
Pranayama - The Yoga of Breathing


Because the breath, a giver of life, is an art in itself in learning to control it and the entrance to other parts of the human existence, be it physical or mental. However, Pranayama is an engagement that goes beyond breathing. It is a core of Yoga. The gateway to uniting the body, mind and spirit.

Pranayama is a yogic practice that requires you connect all of your five senses to your breath. In breathing, we give life to our being. However, there are a lot of physical and mental elements that make the human being. Pranayama helps you focus on connecting to all of these components, giving life to them in the process.

Connecting the breath to your mind releases a lot of negativity from the human system. How you can go about this practice will be discussed to raise an insight into why you need to improve your breathing by creating a connection during your yoga practice.

In his book, "Breath Becomes Life", Rishi Eric Infanti described the art & sciance of breathing, the technical aspects of the Pranayama exercises, and the supporting Yoga postures to integrate this as a full, alive, and effective practice for your health and wellbeing.
