Yoga practice

Today in the West there are many practitioners of yoga

whose goal is to restore physical health and alleviate where possible,

some of the unusually stressful conditions people are experiencing in these crucial times.

We would be well advised, however, to stop short before undertaking sophisticated breathing and other techniques that could,

if unwisely pursued,

interfere with the proper functioning of the pranas.

Prana is a Sanskrit term for the five or seven “life-breaths” that circulate through and maintain the body in health

In other words normal yoga exercise fine

Special breathing techiques not fine
