Experience pranayama, the art and science of yogic breathing. We'll focus on our breathing techniques as we practice. Yoga poses help the bod as pranayama helps the mind. It is believed that this practice cleanses 72,000 nadis, or channels, in the body, and purifies the blood and respiratory systems. Pranayama's health benefits include reduced anxiety, lower/stabilized blood pressure, increased energy, muscle relaxation, improved concentration, and more. It's great for adults and beneficial for young kids, too.
