Prana is the Chakobsa word for "nerve".

The term was typically used by the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood when referring to control of the nervous system. The word was often used in conjunction with bindu, which meant "muscle".

'Prana' in sanskrit refers to the flow of energy through the system of 'nadis' or channels in the human body. It also means something like 'breath'. Breath-control is a technique used in some kinds of tantric meditation.
