The beauty of Pranayama
Conscious breathing or '𝙋𝙧𝙖𝙣𝙖𝙮𝙖𝙢𝙖' as it is called in yogic terms is one of the best and easiest practices to improve your health.
It is so easy that most people don't believe in its effectiveness. Many people believe they have to do something difficult, they need to sweat to feel a change or they need to spend a lot of money for advice or properties to improve their health. That is simply wrong.
This is what most companies who sell their 'so called' healthy products want you to believe. This is what marketing companies get paid for; to make you believe you need to have this vitamin pill, this power drink, this exercise equipment to become healthy. They just want you to consume and buy their products. They don't care about your health. In fact they don't want you to be healthy and happy either, coz if you are healthy and happy then you realize you have everything you need.
So, take your health in your own hands back. You can improve your health with some easy Pranayama practices under the guidance of a yoga teacher who teaches yoga in its completeness and not only Asanas (yoga postures).
Below are just some benefits you gain from 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙨𝙘𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙨 𝙗𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜.

Look around and find a yoga teacher who is teaching pranayama. Yoga teachers who only teach asanas (yoga postures) are not yoga teachers, they are (maybe good) exercise or workout teachers but not yoga teachers. Yoga is much more than only asanas.
