Prana is the life force that animates everything. This includes everything external to us and everything within ourselves. It is infinite and it’s all about flow throughout the body.
Since prana is infinite and it’s everywhere, we don’t need to generate more of it, we just need to let it flow through our energetic and physical system.
Breath is one way we interact with prana outside our body and depending on how we breathe we can change the way prana moves in, out, and around our own body.
There are specific pranayama exercises that one can practice to influence the way that prana moves through our system in different ways. It is through these breathing practices that we can balance energies in our system which may have become out of balance.
