About the Series

Yogic breathing, also known as Pranayama, is the fourth limb of yoga. This powerful practice is one of the most important in yoga because it deals with prana (energy).

In each breathing practice we purify the body by literally filling it with more oxygen, which enriches our blood and life force. By regulating the breath, we can control the speed of the heart and settle the mind, allowing us to be more conscious, connected and filled with bliss.

A consistent pranayama practice helps you connect to your physical and meditative practices and sense the interconnectedness of all things.
