Armed with this understanding,
you will shatter your karmic bonds.
On this path no effort is wasted, no gain is ever reversed;
even a little of this practice
will shelter you from great sorrow.
Bhagavad Gita 2.38
“Whatever movement or yoga asana you are practicing, allow the basic expanding, condensing pattern of the breath to express itself through you at all times. Then all your practice will become like a dance in which the invisible partner of the breath guides you.”
Prana means “life force” and yama means “to direct” or “to control”, ayama means “to extend”.
