Develop your understanding and practice of Pranayama breath control, exercises especially intended to keep the body and mind in vibrant health. By changing the breathing pattern, different states of mind can be produced. When you breathe consciously you activate a different part of your brain, by stimulating the cerebral cortex and the more evolved areas of the brain. Consciously breathing sends impulses from the cortex to the connecting areas that impact emotions and activating the cerebral cortex has a relaxing and balancing effect on the emotions.
