PRANAYAMA ( Life force)

A regular practice of this mudra will sure purify your innerself,revive you and your mind will become sharp.The prana( breath) will become more lighter as you may have not experienced earlier.although it can be performed at anytime on empty stomatch but early morning is the perfect time for this.

Pranayama has three stages 

 Prana means life and ayama means control in Sanskrit. Hence Pranayama (yoga breathing) became the root for all asanas and chakras.
There are three main stages in yoga breathing; inhalation (puraka), exhalation (rechaka) and retention of breath (kumbhaka). The proportion of inhalation, retention and exhalation should be in the ratio of 1:4:2. That means if we inhale for a second hold the breath for 4 seconds and exhale it within 2 seconds.practice these by sitting erect on a mat
