Ordet ”yoga” är inte längre något nytt för oss; idag är det ett ord med nästan lika vardaglig klang som ”sushi” eller ”mobilt bredband”. Det är ett begrepp av vår tid och många har någon gång på ett eller annat sätt kommit i kontakt med yoga, kanske via egen träning, via någon familjemedlem, vän eller bekant.
Hur vi idag närmar oss yoga är resultatet av en flera tusen år lång utveckling och människor fortsätter att tolka och möta yoga som metod på olika sätt. Traditionella tekniker blandas med moderna inslag och för den yogaintresserade finns numera många olika former att välja mellan. En yogaklass kan innebära allt från ångande akrobatik med pulserande musik, till den absoluta stillheten i en sittande andningsövning.
The word ”pranayama” is often translated as ”expansion or elongation of life force” and it represents one of the main methods of classical hatha yoga. In this tradition of yoga, pranayama is maybe the most highly regarded tool to be used for creating a greater contact with the inner world and more subtle parts of us as human beings. Through regular pranayama we prepare the body and mind for further meditation practices.
For the yogi, practicing pranayama means working with a group of breathing and cleansing techniques that will enhance health and that also, according to yogic tradition, have a more subtle effect on the vital life force (known as prana) itself.

The pranayama community is growing steadily in the world and in Stockholm as well. Keeping up a regular practice is usually a challenge but can be supported by checking in with a teacher and meeting other fellow yogis with the same interest.
