Pranayam has been derived from two words Pran and Ayam. It means, to expand the pranic energy of the body. Normally it is understood only as a respiration technique of inhaling and exhaling. It is true that the level of oxygen increases in the body throughpranayam, but the meaning is not limited to this.
“Pran” is a life-giving energy which is subtler than oxygen and is present everywhere. In Pranayam, special breathing techniques are used to assimilate that vital force from the atmosphere and enhance it in the body.
Our lifestyle deeply effects ourpranic force. Our actions, sleep, diet, thought, senses, etc all have an effect on our pranas. Irregularity and indiscrimination in our lifestyle depletes pranic energy and leads to pranic blockages. That is why people feel the loss of energy from time to time. The depletion of pranicenergy leads to ailments in organs and muscles. The various Pranayam practices help expand this energy and balance the five types of pranas in the body. Pranayam should be practiced after asans.
The mind is a subtle machine that constantly generates thoughts. These thoughts create our personality. You look at someone and say, “he seems to be a very angry person,” or “he appears to be a very simple and straightforward person” or “he seems to be very kind-hearted,” etc. The nature of thoughts that resides in the mind shapes a personality and to an extent physical appearance as well.
