Meditation and Pranayama
Meditation and Pranayama involve concentration and breath. Meditation is a practice of cultivating awareness of our habitual thought patterns, and pranayama is a practice of refining our breath and increasing awareness of pranic flow. They work together to create meditative awareness and conscious breathing patterns to guide you in your asana practice and in life.
