Pranaa can be described as many things – breath, life, life force or vital energy. The origin of the word lies in Sanskrit language where it refers to a vital life sustaining force. Pranaa is a central concept in Ayurvedic medicine and Yoga and is understood as “that which suffuses life into all living forms”. It is believed to flow through a network of subtle channels called nadis throughout the body. Pranaa’s first expounding came in the Upanishad’s (ancient Hindu scriptures) where it is explained as a part of the worldly, physical realm that sustains the body and the mind. In practical terms, all physical feelings or energies that arise or flow within a living being are manifestations of Pranaa. It is that life force that permeates our existence and when it leaves us, life comes to an end.
