**Prana Vayu** is a subtype of Vata. It is found in the head and brain and moves in a downward and inward direction.
“Motionless prana is Pure Awareness. The moment prana moves in a particular direction, awareness becomes attention and attention becomes perception. Through perception, prana creates sensation through which one senses the object of perception. Then sensation becomes feelings and feelings create emotion. Therefore, emotion is the reaction fo the flow of prana and all emotions come from memory.” Lad, p. 49
