Pranayama is a practice to control and regulate your breath by different exercises and techniques. This practice will help you to clear physical and emotional blocks or obstacles in the body so that the breath can flow freely. This flow goes through the energy channels (nadis) in the body.
This form of yoga has often postures with no flow poses. This is the most ancient an traditional form of yoga. Broken down, Ha means “sun” and Tha means “moon”. This form of yoga balances perfectly the sun- and moonenergy. It makes your body pure and it will give vital energy. That energy will flow through the energy canals of your body, also called nadis. There are two important nadis which go aroud your spine. Pingala and Ida nadi. Pingala is the energy on the right side and Ida on the left side of your body.
