Reduce stress and relax with breathing

Approach: Learn different breathing techniques and their health benefits

Pranayama
(breathing techniques) means the control of Breath. “Prana” is Breath or vital energy in the body. On subtle levels, prana represents the pranic energy responsible for life or life force, and “ayama” means control.

What are the benefits of this practice?
It helps:
- Reduce stress, anxiety, and depression
- Lower/stabilized blood pressure
- Increased energy levels
- Muscle relaxation
- Other health benefits
Deep and slow breathing activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which reverses the stress response in your body, slowing down your heart rate, lowering your blood pressure, and calming your body and mind. Deep breathing is more relaxing and efficient, allowing higher volumes of oxygen to reach the body’s cells and tissues.
