Pranayama: A classical & traditional approach
This book provides a classical and traditional approach towards life by breath control with different types of asnas
"Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured." BKS Iyengar
Pranayama is a compound word meaning Prana 'Vital Energy' and Ayama 'Control and Regulation'. But it is not basically breath-control or breath-regulation. Pranayama needs a lot of study of breath usages, applications, and Addresses by-on-in-with-breath. This book provides a classical and traditional approach towards life by breath control with different types of asana.
This differentiates between the physiology of respiration that comes in body-science and the physiology of breathing that occurs in the science of yog. The entire human embodiment is a breathing organism, even inner, outer, physical, psycho-mental, psychic, gross and subtle and esoteric organs, senses, and constitutions.
