Pranayama, Mudra and Banda (Breathing Science)
Pranayama (breathing science)
Pranayama is derived from two sanskirt words – Prana (vital energy) and Ayama (expansion). Therefore, Pranayama means the expansion of vital energy through breathing exercises. Proper practice of this free source of energy (breath) can make remarkable changes to our health, vitality, self confidence and mental peace. Steady practice arouses inner spiritual light, happiness and a peaceful mind.
Pranayama (yogic breathing) involves the voluntary control of the breath, which helps to control your involuntary thoughts and makes mastery of your mind. Research shows the practice of Pranayama (breathing practice) helps to reduced anxiety and depression, increases energy levels, relaxes muscles, decreases feelings of stress and strengthens the nervous and respiratory systems.
Also, pranayama has a good impact on allowing better function of the autonomic system and improves the workings of lungs, heart, intestines, kidneys and pancreas. By pranayama practice, all body organs receive more oxygen, which helps to purify the blood and removes toxins from body. After pranayama practice, you will be provided freedom from negative and harmful thoughts, and will start experiencing lightness of body, feelings of inner peace, better sleep, better memory and better concentration.

Bandhas (Lock system of breathing):
Bandhas mean to hold or lock the breath. The locks, which are specific contractions of core areas of the body, and control of prana (breath), brings steady flow of energy, harmony and balance to life. With access to core values, you can express yourself with integrity. Without knowing the lock system of prana (Breath), pranayama could not give good benefit, so bandha is fundamental for the practice of pranayama.
The locks are gateways to developing core strength, sensitivity, and are important to kundalini awakening (awakening of inner energy). The practice of bandhas has both depth and effectiveness to pranayama practice, which is the important part of yoga. Applying the body locks properly will help you clear blockages that impede the open flow of energy through your physical body and Chakras (energy center). Some specific bandhas are:
- Mula Banda (root lock)
- Uddiyana bandha (Stomach lock)
- Jalandhara Bandha (Chin lock)
- Maha Banda or Tri- Bandha (great lock)
Mudras (Seal of prana):
The meaning of ‘mudra’, which is a Sanskrit word, is ‘closure’ or ‘seal’. Mudras positions are made by combining physical, mental and breathing process that have an effect on the energy flow of the body.
Yogic Mudras are weapons to use the energy in a better manner in a specific direction. Yoga Mudra has a tremendous effect on posture and thought process. We will teach different kind of effective mudras that are:
- Tatto mudra (Five element mudra)
- Pranic mudra (Five prana balancing mudra)
- Physical mudra
- Mudra for different disease
- Hastha mudra (hand mudra)
Some benefits of mudras are as follows:
- Mudra helps in removing the toxins from the body. It also has a balancing effect on the mind and helps develop inner balance and confidence.
- The mudras clear the energy centers and subtle channels in the body. This allows the life force to flow freely to the various parts of the body.
