Let's begin a discussion about pranayama experiences during asana practice. What pranayam techniques do you use during your asana practice? Ujjayi, Wave or Full Yogic Breath, do you ever do Kapalabhati during asana practice? Do you ever forget to breathe!!

Breath is life. Become one with your breath and you will see the connection between all things. The breathless state of Samadhi is actually becoming one with the breath so that the act of breathing is not noticable. However do not confuse holding ones breath with this state. As one breathes in meditation focussing on the breath allows one to concentrate and quiet the mind. The next step is more difficult in that now one has to focus deeper within than the breath and yet continue to breathe. This is done with steady practice and patience. One must practice with discipline and yet not "try" to obtain certain expected or desired results. Rather follow your breath inward and quietly experience the trip each time and enjoy the experience each time you sit down.
