Pranayama can not be separated from asana or meditation or mantra, why? Because the purpose of pranayama as yoga itself - is getting bliss or liberation for the mind. Normalisation of breath, increasing the time of spontaneous retention and at least entering in meditative state – that is a goal of Pranayama. “Long breath - long life, short breath - short life”, - developing correct breath not only calms mind but also helps to cure some common diseases. We use pranayama as a tool during asana, meditation, mantra. Because people are different, everyone can find his suitable tool how to enter in deeper state of meditation. The classes made by the way that you can try all main tools of yoga and master those practices that leads in your case in deeper state of concentration.
