‘Pranashakti Kriya’ is a simple and energetic breathing technique to increase body’s immune system and keeps the respiratory system healthy. In the human body, an energy called Prana drives the respiratory system. It draws the breath inward and provides mobility to the thoracic region. This energy moves in the body in the subtle channels of the heart region. If there is any kind of obstruction in the subtle channels of the heart in which it travels, then it is unable to perform its functions properly due to which diseases of the respiratory system start to manifest in the body. By regular practice of ‘Pranashakti Kriya’, the channels of the heart region is purified, which makes prana-shakti flow smoothly. One of the channels of the heart region in which this energy moves, is called the Anahata Chakra which is located in the Sushumna nadi. The Anahata Chakra in the gross body is related to the thymus gland. This gland is situated in the lower neck and upper part of the chest and it secretes thymus hormone which helps in the development of the body’s immune system. Due to inactivation of Anahata Chakra, the thymus gland is not able to perform its function properly, as a result of which body’s immune system starts deteriorating. The ‘Pranashakti Kriya’ activates the Anahata Chakra which makes the body’s immune system strong. The energy called nag in the body is considered to be the associative energy of Prana. The nag energy works to get the extra air that goes into the stomach with food out of the body through burping. ‘Pranashakti Kriya’ also removes obstructions in the path of nag energy, thus helping it function smoothly. The practice of this Yogic Kriya burns the toxins stored in the body and balances the three bio-elements, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. The rapid movement of air in the lungs increases the rate of blood oxygen and increases the elimination of carbon dioxide. This increases the speed of metabolism that generates heat and expels toxins from the body. Lungs are cleansed by this activity and they are able to ward off the diseases related to the respiratory system. It brings balance to the nervous system and makes it strong, as well as strengthens the organs of the digestive system. With regular practice of this kriya the temperature of the body is controlled and the blood circulation improved. It will also keep the brain spheres balanced and functional and keep the mind calm and happy.
