For the first time, I am going to share the science of Pranayama in the second module of Mothers Love Kids Yoga Teachers Training next month. The content is not confined to what I have learned in my yoga teachers training but I will also be transmitting the experiences in my muscle memory and bio memory from the initiation I received from my Guru, Bhagawan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam (fondly known as Swamiji).
What is pranayama?
The word pranayama comprises of two roots: prana plus ayama. ‘Prana’ means ‘vital energy’ or ‘life force’. ‘Ayama’is defined as ‘extension’ or ‘expansion’. Therefore, the word ‘Pranayama’ means ‘extension and expansion of prana’.

I had an ’AHA’ moment when I came across a very old discourse delivered by my Guru in 2013 on the topic of grace!
In that discourse, Bhagawan Sri Nithyananda Paramashiva (fondly known as Swamiji) revealed that there are four representatives of God in Vedic tradition:- 1) Nature; 2) the “Avyaktha” – Unmanifested Nature which we label as “Unknown”; 3) Individual Soul and finally 4) Guru. These are the four representatives of God we encounter in the life.
First of all, Nature is the first representative of God we face. But, if you look what human beings have done to the Nature, we are destroying the Nature at an alarming rate. Many scientists and environmentalists are seeing a rapid destruction of our natural habitat and we may not survive in the next 20 years.

I just completed the 10-day Module #1 of Mother Love Kids Yoga Teachers Training in Singapore on Thursday with a small group of aspiring yoga teachers. This training was designed mainly to create a new breed of Kids Yoga teachers who will have the knowledge and body intelligence to help children from higher dimensions to stay grounded after they land on planet earth. For that, they were taught the human developmental patterns which I learned from Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen of Body-Mind Centering and also many sacred insights of Yoga from my Guru, Bhagawan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam (fondly known as Swamiji). The goal of this Kids Yoga Teachers Training is to apply this science to create a slew of new experiential learnings in engaging and raising the collective consciousness of children. Three categories were revealed to us: 1) Creativity – the ability to inspire kids’ creative expressions in music, art, poetry as a flow of life, 2) Wellness – includes better concentration, healing and discipline towards living a life with integrity, 3) Life Strategy – techniques to face life challenges and realize one’s life purpose and something more. I seriously don’t know what this will lead us into but I am truly excited over the possibilities this platform opens up for all of us.
