What is Pranayama & Meditation?

Pranayama, as the very name explains is “regulation of breath”. Breathing is the vehicle absorbing “Prana” or the“vital force” that sustains the functioning of the human body.

The way in which we breathe has a direct influence on our body and mind which impacts our entire being.Lifestyle diseases such as Hypertension, Asthma and anxiety disorders can be rectified with correct breathing patterns. A stressful schedule has made many people take no notice of simple breathing, and when neglected, can have far reaching consequences.

We at Sri Krishna Wellness Yoga and Cultural Centre are committed towards imparting the right techniques of Pranayama for better health and well-being.

The practice of correct breathing improves cell regeneration  and ensures sufficient supply of oxygen. Additionally, the practice of correct breathing techniques also improves the quality of our performance in day today activities.

Ancient practices such as Hatha Yoga Also emphasize the importance of breathe control. The deeper the breath, the lesser are your thoughts and more silent is your mind.

It is also said that with just 3 months of  correct and regular breathing practice, all the blockages in the Nadi systems are released and  you can experience the smooth flow of PranaShakthi in the Nadis.

In  this age and generation of mobile phones, social media, internet and a whole lot of ‘outward’ connections, the art of internalisation and being with oneself has been forgotten and lost. We must make some “me time”, to explore our journey inwards and to knowing ourselves better through a simple tool called meditation.  This brings a fresh energy, complete relaxation and inner stillness, which is sustained throughout the day!

Happiness is a short lived feeling in all human beings whereas the permanent feeling of Bliss is an inherent  dormant feeling which can be achieved through meditation.

We at Sri Krishna Wellness Yoga and Cultural Centre make it our responsibility to provide you the correct method and a beautiful space for you to achieve a meditative state of mind.

  • The focus of the mind is brought to the breath by observing and consciously following the breath.
  • This is followed by increasing this focus by using the tool of Asanas (breath-based body movements).
  • The enhanced focus on breath is further consolidated by practising various techniques of pranayama leading to the breath being the only object of focus.
  • The class concludes with being with the breath and consciously following the breath to gently ponder the changes at the body, breath and mind level

Pranayama is "Prana"- that 'something' flowing and keeping us alive and 'Ayama' – to extend and stretch. By Pranayama we Practice keeping the Prana within the Body, than outside the Body. By doing this, we benefit with a calm and sharp mind and , lean , light and trim body, The experience of clarity in our thoughts can be furthered by connecting "Purusha" - the consciousness, Prana & Mind in unison and we realize gradually that they are interconnected.

In the Classical Krishnamcharya Tradition, we have combined Pranayama and Asana in Meditation and have made the postures an integral part of Meditation instead of just a step leading towards it. We should be fully comfortable in Sthira and Sukha positions of the body, so to Practice meditation without distractions from the Body and Mind. It is the proper practice of Asana in unison with Pranayama that will lead to the ideal practice of Meditation.

We teach Classical Breathing Techniques, Asanas required for Pranayama Practice, Kumbhakha Practices, Improve Breathing and Lung Capacity, Correct Breathing Pattern and Rhythm, Improve the Overall Health by reducing the flow of Prana outside the body, and Meditation for Concentration and Sharp Focus.
