A well written article about the practice of pranayama that is paramount for success in hatha yoga. Recommended


Fantastic article. I had been having certain unaddressed areas while doing pranayama which I have been doing as from my ninth year when I underwent the upanayanam ceremony as a Brahmin boy. Each of my query remained with me all these years, aim 60 now, is answered in your article. Well done and Kudos for your service to humanity


Whenever someone mentions a theory of modern physics that most people are aware of - its never an actual theory of modern physics.

give on focas pranayama. what is pranayama. pranayama is a not excersise . it is pranas work. it is not compli by force. it is a tekanik.


This is the best article I have read on Breath. ! I went into Yoga wanted to control my thoughts and emotions first --strengthen the body second--so I have always be aware of the benefits of the breath--now I know better how to put it into words! Thank-you!


This is a very good pranayama article. I have read it several times over the course of several months of practicing Pranayama. The more I practice the more I get out of Tony's instruction and theory. The first time reading it, before really starting up my personal practice, it didn't have a lot of meaning to me. But now after having practiced for a while it makes more sense and I am getting much more out of it.


...Ah, so i'm not alone in my stubborness then. I'm resisting this all of the way and need to write a pranayama breathing diary! I do pranayama during class practice, just don't feel it benefits me enough to take further. However, I find inspiration from your beautifully written article. Thank you


I love the way this was written and especially the Dr. Seuss reference. Very helpful article as well. Thank you!
