In Sanskrit Ujjayi means to conquer, to be victorious. Practice of Ujjayi Pranayama reduces a flow of air at a height of the throat and varies the pressure in the lungs, that increases the exchange of oxygen and circulation of blood. Ujjayi breathing during the practice of Yoga increases concentration that helps to hold the challenging poses during the asana sequences longer by bringing the space and strength to every muscle of the body. It also helps to release tension accumulated during these difficult asanas and regulates the body temperature that prepares the body to do the asanas execution; heat makes stretching safer and cleanses the internal organs out of toxins that have accumulated within.
