The Sanskrit word Prana (from the root "an" - "to breathe") can take on multiple meanings, indicates "energy", "vital breath", "force" and "dynamism"; it is often used in the plural to describe vital breaths. Ayama on the other hand means "prolongation", "expansion", "control": the Pranayama is therefore, on a first level, the art of the extension of the breath and of its conscious control, but more profoundly is the ability to control that subtle energy contained not only in the breath, but also in the air, in the water, in the food.
