The 5 Vayus
The 5 vayus govern the autonomic functions of the body through their controlling effect on the Autonomic Nervous System.
PRANA which circulates above the waist, governing respiration and the action of the voice through the cervical portion of the Autonomic N.S. It flows naturally in an upward direction.
APANA circulates below the waist into the lower abdomen and governs the organs of excretion and reproduction through the lumber portion of the Autonomic N.S. The natural flow is downward.
SAMANA governs the organs of digestion through the thoracic region of the Autonomic N.S.
UDANA governs the vocal chords and speech mechanism through the cephalic divisions of the Autonomic N.S. This VAYU is said to be responsible for the separation of the subtle body from the physical at the time of death. It also enables thoughts to be expressed, regulates the air supply and regulates the tension of the vocal chords
VYANA said to permeate the whole body and govern the blood and lymphatic circulatory system and control muscle activity. VYANA also helps to keep the body upright by generating unconscious reflexes along the spine. Said also to govern the flow of the nervous system.
