Aroyama is a concept
developed by combining Aromatherapy and Pranayama. One of
the 5 principles of yoga is Pranayama which utilizes breathing
to influence the flow of life force into the energy channels
of our body. Good respiration begins with a slow and complete
exhalation. Unless we breathe out completely, we cannot
breathe in more fresh air to oxygenate our cells and tissues.
The absolute relaxation is achieved only when the lungs
are completely empty as the diaphragm muscles are at rest
during those few seconds when we hold our breath.
