Meaning of Gyan Yog Breath

To understand the meaning of Gyan Yog Breath Yoga School, we will take a closer look at its name: GYAN- YOG-BREATH.

Gyan is a Sanskrit word and means inner wisdom.

Yog  is the origin of the word Yoga.

Yoga means unity and oneness.

And Breath refers to our breath.

The breath is our most powerful tool. As we breathe in, we supply our body and internal organs with oxygen. As we exhale, we release carbon dioxide from our body.

In yoga,the right breath is the key to a healthy and happy life.

If you breathe properly through yogic tools like pranayama and Power of Transformation Breathing, you can reach GYAN (inner wisdom) easily.

If we combine yogic wisdom (GYAN) with the right BREATH, we reach unity, oneness (YOG).

An intense Yoga teacher Training or Yoga Retreat can help you to receive life-changing and long-lasting benefits.
