In Prasna Upanishad sage Pipala describes Prana into five kinds.
Main prana in the eyes, ears, mouth and nose
Apana downward force, in the organs of sex and excretion
Samana the equalizing force in the middle digests food and kindles the seven fires
Vyana distributor of energy, moves through vital currents, radiating from the heart, where the Self lives
Udana runs upward through the spinal channel, leads the selfless up the long ladder of evolution, and the selfish down.
