Cultivating awareness of these two energetic qualities into one's own yoga practice is the goal of the Viniyoga tradition. If one is feeling sluggish or lazy then encouraging brahmana by practicing a stimulating asana sequence will energize the body, bringing it back into harmony.
Applying brahmana during yoga asana and pranayama helps to strengthen the nervous system, boost energy, promote vitality and support metabolism. Some asanas that encourage brahmana energy include Virabhadrasana 2, Sun Salutations and invigorating vinyasa flows. Pranayama breathing exercises, such as kapalabhati, also work to energize the body and increase brahmana.
