P
rana is the universal life energy that exists in everything. In our body it acts as a bridge between the material matter and the consciousness. One of the most effective ways to impact Prana is the conscious control of our breath. Correct breathing vitalises and harmonizes the energy flow in the body.

1.
Getting started
2. Sectional and Yogic Breathing. As preparation for the following exercises we sensitize the breath. The process is done in 3 steps during which the 3 main breathing areas are consciously opened and activated. We proceed by combing the 3 steps into full Yogic Breathing. We employ Yoga Mudras during the proceeding.
3. Using Nadi Shuddi, we harmonize our breath, subtly impacting body and mind. We use the Nasika Mudra for closing the nostrils.
4.
Bhramari. Imitating the sound of the female bee, we relax and quiet the mind.
5.
Conclusion
  
Pranayama Practise
The exercise splitting in tracks allows variations of the Pranayama exercise either on intended purpose or just to accommodate time constrains. Please note that track 1, 2 and 5 must be in any combination. Track 1 and 5 for obvious purposes, track 2 since all other techniques require the breath sensitization achieved by this section.

Phase 1 - Sensitise the breath            Tracks: 1, 2, 5           Duration: 23 minutes
Phase 2 - Harmonize the breath         Tracks: 1, 2, 3, 5       Duration: 30 minutes
Phase 2 - Relax and calm the mind   Tracks: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5   Duration: 36 minutes
