prana

Ayurvedic medicine
The primal or vital energy that drives life; prana is analogous to qi (chi) in Chinese medicine, and viewed as having the qualities of a “nutrient” that can be taken into the body. Because prana is present in the air, breathing exercises are believed to have a central role in promoting health.

Prana

Life sustaining energy centered in the human brain; the first of the five airs of Ayurvedic philosophy; the life force governing inspiration and the conscious intellect.
