The name "Pranarôm" has a double meaning. PRANA means "breath of life". Prana is the Indian version of Chi. It is the breath and energy that runs through us and all things. This breath is the start of all actions and decisions, it is essential energy. ARÔM comes from "aromatic". We refer to all plants from which we extract essential oils as aromatics. Therefore PRANARÔM means breath of life and overall health provided by essential oils, the quintessences of aromatic plants.
