Benefits of Prana Vashya

Benefits of Prana Vashya
 

In its natural form, the Prana supports the Awareness. This capacity is utilized to develop understanding about the external world. "Where there is awareness, there is understanding. Where there is understanding, there is adjustment". This is with reference to the awareness which moves outwards. Out of our self boundaries or in a social perspective.
 
But if the same awareness is directed inwards, towards the prana, through different channels of the Body and Mind, the complete sentence changes to "Where there is awareness, there is understanding. Where there is understanding, there is control".
 
A healthy body and mind is the basic requirement for understanding the self. Hence the focus is to increase the awareness of the capacities of these two distinct entities thus developing control over them. Prana Vashya Yoga aims to direct this consciousness towards Prana or the self through a process of Asana to the body and Pranayama to the mind.
 
Psychological benefits:-The Basic focus of Prana Vashya Yoga is to strengthen the nerves through the powerful influence of breath which helps the practitioner to remain calm in any stressful situation in his daily life.
Physical benefits:-Prana Vashya Yoga provides equilibrium for the upper and lower body; there is a complete utilization of the shoulders, hip joints, thigh muscles, calf muscles, and hamstrings which help build and maintain strength and stamina in the legs. Prana Vashya is distinguished by its unique approach to flow and balance. The flow is slow, deliberate, and deep, and the body is trained evenly along its front, back and transverse lines. This approach trains the body equally in strength, balance and flexibility while calming the mind and nervous system.
Physiological benefits:-Prana Vashya ensures saturated physiological response from the body because of the depth to which the practitioner carries his body through his own efforts to attain perfection in the asana by the techniques tailored for the same.
Even though the practice seems to be hard in the initial stages, It ensures confidence and energy saturation as the practitioner gets accustomed to.
