Passage

Pranayama

Pranayama is the fourth step of Ashtanga Yoga. The word ‘Pranayama’ consists of two components, prana and ayama. “Prana” means energy, the self-energizing force of life and consciousness. It is the creator of all beings in the universe. ‘Ayama’ means stretch, expansion and regulation. When the self-energizing force embraces the body with expansion and regulation, it is called as pranayama. It is the regulation of incoming and outgoing flow of breath with retention, in a rhythmic pattern. It should be practised after attaining perfection in asana.

Out of total four types of Pranayama, first three types are regulated inhalation (abhyantaravritti) , regulated exhalation (bahyavritti) and retention (stambhavritti) . These components of pranayama are to be performed and prolonged according to the capacity of individuals.

These three types are sabeeja pranayama, as attention is on the breath itself during their practice. The fourth pranayama goes beyond the regulation of breathflow and retention.

It transcends the range of movements, appears effortless and non-deliberate, thus called as nirbeeja pranayama. Pranayama removes the coverings over light of knowledge and allows the inner light of wisdom to shine.

By the practice of Pranayama, mind also becomes fit for concentration (dharana) . Pranayama, an important component of bahiranga yoga, is not only a method to steady the mind, but it is also the gateway to dharana. The step of yoga next to pranayama is pratyahara.
