Origin, history

This training type, as well as "Harmony" and "Power", is derived from Pranayama, an ancient Vedic technique of breathing gymnastics. The word "Baahya" is translated from Sanskrit as "Outside/External".
In Prana Breath this training type is adapted even for people that don't practice Yoga and/or don't have much time for practice but still need its effect.
It is recommended to perform Bhastrika pattern before practicing Bahya Pranayama.
