Pranayama and its benefits
We rely on the Element Air for being alive! We all have experienced at least once either asthma, stress or simply being short of breath. When this happens you realise how this fantastic respiratory system does more than allow you to breathe but provides the vital energy which gives the real meaning of being alive. I felt deeply for all of those who have gone through such suffering with the Covid 19 virus which attacks this fundamental part of our life support system.
Here is my personal translation of the philosophy of YOGA which I made more comprehensible when I worked with youngsters at colleges.
Change the attitude to change the mental process! Yoga is the Science of the Mind, called Raja Yoga, whose aim is to free us from suffering from the duality of mankind's interior nature.
The philosophy and the psychology of yoga are based on the Sutras of Patanjoli (500BC).
