About Pranayama

Many people breathe inefficiently leading to heightened stress, poor digestion and a host of other ailments. Pranayama will teach you how to breathe consciously, correctly and efficiently and will help to calm your mind, expand your cardio-vascular fitness and can, with patient practice, help the symptoms of asthma and other respiratory disorders. Pranayama is both enjoyable and beneficial to your well being, and practiced regularly leaves you feeling calm but energized.
