Breathing exercises are known as pranayama.
Ayurveda views Prana as life force; prana increases agni, opens and cleanses the mental channels (Manovahasrotas) that carry oxygen to the brain. It also increases ojas- the ‘elixir of life’
Here are other good reasons for practicing pranayama:
1. It activates the parasympathetic nervous system and reduces blood pressure
2. It enhances respiratory functions: increases respiratory strength and endurance
3. It improves attention and fine-motor coordination/performance
4. It enhances mental clarity and balances the emotions

Meditation at home
Guided meditations for your private use at home.
A leading principle of Ayurveda is that the mind exerts the deepest influence on the body, and freedom from sickness depends upon contacting our own awareness, bringing it into balance and extending that balance of the body.
Every meditation tradition begins with daily practices that help to focus a scattered mind. The most common way to start is by focusing on a single object that is always with you: the movement of the breath in the body!
Here are a few Breath & Body meditations for you to use in the comfort of your home.
