Yoga Breathing 101: What Is Pranayama?

Pranayama is a yoga term meaning "control of the breath."

The word is two parts: Prana and yama.

Prana represents life force and energy, while yama represents the ability to control and lengthen that breath / energy.

Though it's often associated with rapid breathing, Pranayama is all about control of the breath.
