Although generally described as just "breathing techniques," the Sanskrit word "Pranayama" means "life force expansion," and includes more than just oxygen intake. Prana (life force) is contained within the air we breathe, but it is not the same as oxygen. Through the control of our breath, we are able to increase the amount of prana in our system, as well as control the flow of our entire Pranic body.
Dhyana, or meditation cannot be "practiced" or "done," rather meditation happens as a result of dharana, or concentration. Concentration techniques are numerous, and there is no "right way" to meditate. Every person can achieve meditation through concentration in their own way, using different methods. Visualizations, imagination, pranayama, mantra (sound), and physical activity are just a few means of inducing a meditative state.
