Pranayama are breathing exercises, yoga breathing exercises, [unclear]. [unclear] means body movement exercises. Pranayama is when you're holding one side to the count of 7, and exhale to the count of 7. 

That's about what they say, but some people can only inhale to the count of 3, and exhale to the count of 3. I can inhale it for a count of 90 seconds, and exhale for 90 seconds. If I practice, I can do one inhalation, and one exhalation in five minutes. 

So, I can really control, and lower my heartbeat. That's what pranayama is, controlled breathing. A lot of people feel that oxygen is very, very important. So are carbon dioxides. That's why people who have panic attacks breathe into a bag, and they get more carbon dioxide and that settle them.  

So, oxygen is overrated if you're saying it's more important than carbon dioxide, it is not, they're both needed fairly equal. That's why pranayama works. You inhale. You hold your breath to the same count, and you exhale. So, you're exercising your lungs less, you're producing less carbon dioxide, and waste products because you're allowing by the use the oxygen that is has, and even reuse a lot of carbon dioxide.
