Asanas teach pranayama fundamentals—breath uses, applications, processes.
Prashant S. Iyengar
When body, mind, & breath benefit, we benefit from pranayama.
Karma doesn’t end with fruition: reactions form new samskaras (imprints) & vasanas (tendencies)
Prana is one, like the ocean, but named according to function and location.
Pranayama burns defects, modifies chakra tendencies. Respiratory benefits are secondary.
