Exhalation (of the breath) is denoted by the Sanskrit term Pracchardana, according to the Pātañjalayogaśāstra (i.e., the Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali) 1.34.—Accordingly, while discussing Prāṇāyāma and Samādhi: “Or [stability of mind is attained] through exhalation (pracchardana) and retention of the breath”.—[Commentary]—“Exhalation (pracchardana) is the emission of the abdominal breath through the nostrils with particular care, and retention is stopping the breath. Through both [of these], one should accomplish stability of mind”.
Sanskrit Synonyms of “Exhalation”: Pracchardana, Reca.
Yoga is originally considered a branch of Hindu philosophy (astika), but both ancient and modern Yoga combine the physical, mental and spiritual. Yoga teaches various physical techniques also known as āsanas (postures), used for various purposes (eg., meditation, contemplation, relaxation).
