September 13, 2013    BY Greg Capitolo

If you want a pranayama practice that works, here is some essential advice: build a good foundation! Pranayama (the regulation of prana) affects your energy and nervous system, so good preparation is important. Greg explains how three foundations—diaphragmatic breathing, asana practice for the abdomen and chest, and lifestyle factors such as sleep and diet—help you establish a pranayama practice that delivers healing and purifying benefits to body and mind.
