Breathing for health can be learned in quickly and its benefits experienced in as little as 10 minutes, and yet this practice is all but lost from most modern yoga classes. Yoga that should revolve around breath as the central, unifying theme are suddenly missing this most-important mind-body integrating practice altogether. How did yoga lose its way? On this week’s show, you’ll meet breathing teacher, Max Strom, who is helping to revitalize the age-old tradition of yoga breathing—and doing it in an accessible and extremely practical way.
What You’ll Learn:
- How 90% of communication in relationships is non-verbal, so digital relationships are extremely limited
- Why the Seattle Seahawks, the U.S. Military, and top athletes everywhere are using breath work for optimal performance
- Why 30% of the population uses sleeping medications when breathing could really help
- Why the World Health Organization (WHO) predicts that by 2020, depression would be the leading disability worldwide
