The Breath is bridge between the body & mind. Pranayam is a type of breath work associated with yoga that helps you gain control of your breath & control the energy in the body.

During Pranayam your exhalation is longer than your inhalation & it triggers the parasympathetic nervous system, which helps lower the heart rate & blood pressure.


Meditation is not just method of relaxation & stress management, but also as an aid to strengthen the heart & create more active state in body.
