Term: Pranayama

DEFINITIONs:
1.  The science of breath control used in Hatha Yoga.
SOURCE:  Sacred Path of Reiki, by Katalin Koda

2.  Sanskrit. Breath control. The control of life force (prana) through the regulation of the respiratory process, coupled with visualization. "Pra" means "first or before," and "ana" means "breath"—literally, the first essence underlying the breath.

AUTHOR:  Carl Llewellyn Weschcke

3.  Control or regulation of the breath, usually applied to various Tantric and Yogic breathing techniques. Since prana also refers to energy, another way to think about controlling the breath is to understand it as directing energy.
