The psychology of Pranayama Yoga is that it is easy to understand, practical for day to day living, with no big words nor yet is it trial and error. It is positive and is effective but only if one wants it to be. Each person is a unique being, different from any other. Interests, habits, moods, all different from any other. The abilities of a person likewise
differ. Each one has something no other has got. Adjust to each individual and bring out the best in them. A person must be taught to make the best of what he or she has. Emotional upsets can disturb the potential of a person.
Yogini Sunita taught that one comes into the world alone and leaves it alone and that it is essential to develop inner strength to cope with the demands of life rather than fall back on any of the temporary aids which can never be truly satisfactory as they do not come from within.
In Pranayama Yoga one studies under five headings beginning with Mental Relaxation which is considered the most important. This is followed by Mental Concentration so that the mind can be used fully and efficiently in every aspect of daily life. Breath Control is studied not just for its physical benefits but because it involves the mind in the most vital physical activity and so helps to co-ordinate mind and body. This is followed by Physical Movements designed to strengthen the spine and keep it supple and also to improve the functioning of all the internal organs of the body. Finally comes Deep Relaxation for the body during which energy is replaced and the individual learns again what is often a lost art, that of naturally relaxing the body to eliminate tension in the system.
Pranayama Yoga is an individual study so is not limited to any age group nor does it require a minimum state of physical ability. Epilogue
