This vital energy is forceful and itinerant. Without air the entire world would stop breathing and would look lifeless. The oxygen that helps us survive is just a part of air and acts as the foundation for all the positive reactions in the human body. The intake of air enhances circulation, coolness and movement.
The air element in the body refers to both the breath and creative space in the body. Air is everything that is a gas. Air is responsible for all movement, including expansion, contraction, and suppression. The breath is the basis of all yoga, since without breath, yoga (or life, for that matter) does not exist. Air is what carries the vital energy or “prana” (“chi” in Chinese philosophy) throughout the body and the universe. It is the essence of all life and can be focused on in yoga practice by literally bringing space or air into specific areas of the body in the postures (such as increasing the spaces between the vertebrae of the spine).
