We breathe twenty five thousand times a day and modern humans are pretty bad at it, with great consequences to our health.
Modern research demonstrates that even slight adjustments to how we breathe can increase athletic performance, rejuvenate internal organs, eliminate snoring, asthma, autoimmune diseases, and even straighten scoliotic spines. Not possibe you think? Think again.
Journalist James Nestor travels the world to figure out why we have lost the ability to breathe correctly and how we can fix it.
He travels to the muddy digs of ancient burial sites, secret Soviet facilities, New Jersey choir schools, and the smoggy streets of Sao Paulo tracking down those exploring the science behind ancient breathing practices like Pranayama, Sudarshan Kriya, and Tummo.
Read this book and you will never breathe the same again.
