Pranayama is generally considered to be a process of breath control. It seems right after seeing the practice done in Pranayama, but the truth behind it is something else. Pranayama is made up of a combination of two words: prana and Ayam. Prana means vital energy or life force. The power that exists in all things, whether it is alive or inanimate. Through Pranayama breathing, this energy is transmitted to all the nerves of the body. The word Yama means to control and in yoga, it is used to denote various rules or ethos. But in the word Pranayama, the treaty of Aayam, not Yama, is done with Pran. Aayam means extension or extension. So that’s why pranayama rightly means expanding the life.
