From Yoga and the Body: The overwhelming dominance of modern scientific ideas and medical advances makes us forget that human existence is totally integrated with the life force, or prana. This is the catalyst that drives the body to function as a purposive, cooperative whole, one that is so sophisticated that we have not yet begun to understand it. Yoga works holistically with body and mind to reinforce the prana. Through breathing, stretching and exercise, relaxation , and meditation yoga stimulates the immune system and the other maintenance systems, and tries to create a state of harmony between body, mind, and the external world.
