Drawing on a multitude of breathing practices from different healing and spiritual traditions, The Power of Breathwork includes 25 simple exercises that can be practiced alone or with a partner to facilitate proper immune function and enhance connection, creativity, joy, intuition, or to reduce depression, anxiety, trauma, tension, physical pain, and more. Knowing how to breathe and how to use your breath purposefully has been proven to reduce negative mental and physical issues and actually heal the body and mind. A regular home breathwork practice is an affordable and easy way for you to engage in self-healing practices that can have a profound impact on your overall health. Author, practitioner, and grief worker Jennifer Patterson begins by explaining what breathwork is, why you should try it, and how it can be used to heal the bodymind. Then, you'll learn what happens in your physical body, energetic body, and emotional body as you practice it. Before you start the exercises, find useful tips on building an altar, using scent, visualizations and grounding, and somatic writing prompts to help support your practice. After achieving collaboration and deeper trust with your body through practices such as a nurturing body scan and learning to catch and shift out of breath-holding patterns, return to yourself with these solo breath patterns: 4-7-8 Breath, Energizing Breath, Box Breath, Pursed Lip Breath, Lion's Breath, Diaphragm Breath, Alternate Nostril Breath, Skull Shining Breath, Ocean Breath, and Multi-Part Fast-Paced Breath. With a partner, use breath to work with witnessing and being witnessed, giving and receiving touch, and navigating conflict. Through these practices, you can breathe into a deeper relationship with another. For more focused breathwork practice, you will also find exercises that work with themes such as creativity, easing perfection narratives, inviting laughter and joy, cutting energetic ties to harmful dynamics, plus dedicated practices for welcoming the new day and then, when it is done, releasing the day and inviting sleep. The Power of Breathwork provides you with simple and approachable ways to intentionally and effectively breathe to bring healing and joy.

When working with trauma and chronic health issues, it can often seem like the healing process gets stuck or is producing only minimal progress. In this groundbreaking book, clinical psychologist Jim Morningstar, PhD, shows therapists, bodyworkers, and other health care professionals how to achieve remarkable breakthroughs with their clients using the power of Therapeutic Breathwork. Unlike more commonly known mindfulness breathwork techniques—which typically only involve slower-than-normal breathing—Therapeutic Breathwork is designed to also include faster-than-normal breathing (35–75 breaths per minute) to enervate the sympathetic nervous system. This is especially useful in helping to release blocks that arise while working through difficult emotional issues, including PTSD, addiction, depression, and anxiety. While traditional talk therapy can take many years, sometimes decades, to produce minimal relief, Therapeutic Breathwork can help facilitate astonishing breakthroughs within a single session. Morningstar explains how therapists can reinforce these breakthroughs with additional techniques for self-regulation, dramatically reducing recovery time and often resolving challenges that might never have been worked through in standard practice. Break Through with Breathwork is an accessible and thorough introduction to one of the most powerful tools in supporting health and wellbeing, reducing stress, and stimulating deep emotional and spiritual growth.

WINNER OF BEST BOOK (POPULAR MEDICINE) AT THE BRITISH MEDICAL ASSOCIATION'S BOOK AWARDS 2014 Pain, suffering and stress can be intolerable - but it doesn't have to be this way. Mindfulness for Health reveals a series of simple practices that you can incorporate into your daily life to relieve chronic pain and the suffering and stress of illness. Clinical trials show that mindfulness meditation can be as effective as prescription painkillers and also enhances the body's natural healing systems. Mindfulness can also reduce the anxiety, depression, irritability, exhaustion and insomnia that can arise from chronic pain and illness. Mindfulness for Health is based on a unique meditation programme developed by Vidyamala Burch to help her cope with the severe pain of spinal injury. Taught at Breathworks in the UK - and its affiliates around the world - this programme has helped tens of thousands of people cope with pain, illness and stress. Breathworks' pioneering approach is praised by Professor Mark Williams of Oxford University, Jon Kabat-Zinn and Professor Lance McCracken of King's College London. The eight-week programme at the heart of this book takes just 10-20 minutes per day. It is particularly effective for the biggest causes of pain - back problems, arthritis, migraine and diabetes but works equally well for cancer (and its associated chemotherapy), heart disease, fibromyalgia, celiac disease, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, IBS, labour pain and even tinnitus. You will be surprised by how quickly your suffering melts away, leaving you able to live life to the full again.

Praise for Breath WorkOut Programs

Check out our Facebook Page for more Reviews Breathwork programme was the first structured programme I undertook with a view to improve my breathing and lung capacity. It was a great experience, as we concluded the 21 day run today. a) Improvement in the way I breathe and being conscious of it b) Most importantly, establishment of a regimen which is clearly very hard to achieve on your own c) Anu Lall’s dedication in making sure that everyone gets it. And getting us into the flow patiently. d) getting us to appreciate the nuances of breathing, diet, our physiology. Very much recommended. Everyone should do this course. *** With Breathing exercises for just over two weeks, I have experienced conscious breathing that was otherwise an involuntary activity. I see a difference in my reactions to a situation, have a grip of my effervescent emotions. The result: a better balanced being. I also see how we naturally adapt our breath in response to a particular emotion or an evolving situation. *** In just the first two days with YogaSmith, I found myself finally breathing through BOTH my nostrils, simultaneously. Then clearly. Both in & out! Certain breathing exercises relax my mind. Others energise me for my outdoor sporty activity. Yet another helps me balance my emotions.. mind & body benefit from breathing consciously, through science & simplicity. *** I attended the 21-day Breathwork program by YogaSmith and am so glad that I invested my time doing that. It was an extremely well structured course and Anu Lall is an excellent teacher. Day 1 itself was a revelation and I looked forward to every single day of practise. While I can list out the numerous benefits, to me what stands out is the realisation that I missed out on so much by not doing this earlier. *** Her mission to make the planet yoga and nature aligned as district from pooping pills and getting under rays of scanner is commendable. I have personally have almost 3 Kgs She makes things very easy by using very daily life examples and keeping the integrity of Sanskrit scriptures in place. *** Both of us absolutely loved the Pranayam classes. It was very much a learning experience for us and we are getting better at exhaling and Drishtis!
