“For breath is life, and if you breathe well you will live long on Earth.”

Sanskrit proverb 💫✨

Here at Surya Prana Nutrition, the word ‘Breathe’ means so much as it is a fundamental part of Prana. Prana is the universal energy which flows through the chakras and is similar to ‘Chi’ in Chinese medicine. The Prana Shakti, or life force, in your body is enhanced by the quality of air you breathe and how effectively you breathe through your lungs.🙏🏽💛

This Pranayamic breathing exercise is especially helpful when you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed or tired.🌟
