The breath affects us on biological, mental, and energetic levels, and that reminds us of its importance, not only in Yoga but also when it comes to cultivating balance and peace in our daily lives.
Meditation uses the mind to bring about inner balance within your body and mind. Yoga utilizes slow movements to bring the body into a strong and flexible state.
You’ll often see the words Pranayama Yoga written together and this gives people the idea that it’s a type of yoga. But it’s really a technique rather than a style and is a part of yoga, rather than a type of yoga itself.
