Pranayama is the practice of guiding breath. In yoga, we call this life force energy. The details of breath quality are inquisitively monitored, including texture, temperature, length, and depth, as well as the subtle spaces between each inhalation and exhalation. There are many different styles of pranayam exercises, all of which are meant to strengthen the respiratory system, enhance concentration, and energize the body.The transistion from a bitter cold winter to the breakthrough of spring can often bring with it seasonal allergies. In fact, over 40 million people around the globe suffer from allergies. During a bout of seasonal allergies people often find themselves becoming increasingly agitated and stressed-out as their immune systems begin to shut down. Incorporating regular yoga practice is the perfect method to calm your body's fight-or-flight response system which in turn settles your annoying allergies as well!The Art of Pranayama: Breathwork by Siri Peterson Cavanna
