“We go through the breath to channelize the behavior of the mind (citta vrtti)” – O.P Tiwari

 

The second phrase of the Patanjali Yoga Sutra, Yogascittavrttinirodhah, states that the purpose of Yoga is to channelize the fluctuations of the mind. It is well known that the movement of the breath is closely related to the movement of the mind. Pranayama uses the vehicle of breath to access and manage one’s life energy, which in turn helps in controlling the mind. Pranayama is thus more than a simple breathing exercise, and it is not the same as, for example, deep breathing. The practice of Pranayama, which trains one’s ability to prolong and control the physical act of breathing, is also deeply therapeutic, and can help an individual bring about physical health, increased awareness, calmness and clarity over one’s mind.
