Pranayama is awareness-filled balanced breathing. Let us explain. When breath flows equally from both nostrils this is called balanced breathing and when you put your awareness into your inhalation and exhalation the breathing becomes pranayama. Some pranayama kriyas facilitate weight management while removing toxins from your body. Toxins cause surplus weight and surplus weight invites lethargy and diseases.
