Yoga is mentioned in the Rigveda, and also referenced in the Upanishads. Yoga in Indian traditions, however, is more than physical exercise; it has a meditative and spiritual core. Yoga is the physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India with a view to attain a state of permanent peace. The term yoga can be derived from either of two roots, yujir yoga (to yoke) or yuj samādhau (to concentrate).The Yoga Sutras of Patanajli defines yoga as "the stilling of the changing states of the mind".
Pranayama is the practice of breath control in yoga. In modern yoga as exercise, it consists of synchronising the breath with movements between asanas, but is also a distinct breathing exercise on its own, usually practised after asanas. Prana creates an aura around the body. It flows through thousands of subtle energy channels called nadis and energy centers called chakras. The quantity and quality of prana and the way it flows through the nadis and chakras determines one’s state of mind. In texts like the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and later in Hatha yoga texts, it meant the complete cessation of breathing. Pranayama is the fourth "limb" of the eight limbs of Ashtanga Yoga mentioned in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (a Hindu sage).
