Course objectives:

  • List the health benefits of breathwork.
  • Explain how overstimulation of the sympathetic nervous system contributes to health issues.
  • Describe the relationship between breath and spirituality.
  • Apply breathwork techniques to increase alertness and relaxation.
  • Practice guided exercises for restored wellness over time.

The health you enjoy today, and for the rest of your life, begins with your next breath. In fact, breathing is so crucial to your body's ability to heal and sustain itself that Dr. Andrew Weil says, "If I had to limit my advice on healthier living to just one tip, it would be simply to learn how to breathe correctly."

On Breathing: The Master Key to Self-Healing, listeners will learn a complete course of eight breathing exercises that Dr. Weil uses in his own life, and has prescribed to hundreds of patients over the past two decades. Dr. Weil reports that these breathing exercises get more favorable response from patients than anything else he teaches.

To learn the art of healthy breathing, Dr. Weil turned to Eastern traditions, including yoga, which view the breath as a vital link to the prana, or energy of the universe. In easy-to-follow language, he explains the secret of breathwork's power over your health, and its remarkable ability to influence — and even reprogram — the nervous system.

From increasing energy to lowering blood pressure, to improving circulation to beating anxiety disorders without drugs, Breathing is a practical introduction to the benefits of breathwork, presented by the bestselling author and physician who has taken the miracle out of self-healing, and made it available to all.

Just breathe. Learn how to let go. Review by Cardinal

Years ago I was introduced to Dr Andrew Weil's material. As I grew in my training, I needed the ability to slow down and just breathe. My journey into meditation and mindfulness began with this material. To date, I consider this CD my prized possession and give it regularly to people as a gift. (Posted on March 4, 2016)

Breathing by Dr Andrew Weil Review by Lu

Rating

I have this CD, & other products, books. This is an excellent CD, some people might be frustrated by it but it Does Work. Everyone is different, and breathing correctly is essential for living well as well as emotional health. I had no idea until I listened to this CD. Dr. Weil has a very soothing voice and he is very knowledgeable about in many areas. This is NOT a meditation CD, and if you are interested in meditation learning to breathe correctly is critical Calming the body, and the music is fabulous. I haven't mastered this yet, and he explained that it took 1 person 5 years to do this. Like anything else, practice, and applying yourself is what's needed to learn anything. I hope that I can do it sooner. Dr. Weil is way ahead of most traditional doctors and I know it's easier to do familiar things than trying something new, or different. Well done Dr. Weil, & thank you Soundtrue for making this available. (Posted on August 12, 2015)

Review for Breathing: The Master Key to Self-Healing Review by Maggie L

OVERPRICED. I wanted to add a review of this product just in terms of how MUCH value there is to the content presented here. It's not that I didn't like it, it's just that if you've done any type of meditation or breahwork, there might now be anything new for you here. I was hoping for more unique exercises. I feel like I could probably find everything I paid $13 for online someplace for free.

Simply put, focusing on the exhale, squeezing more air out of the lungs, making your breath deeper, slower, quieter and more regular aren't exercises -- they are techniques. This program could've been a blog post with bullet points. Plus relaxing music isn't something I would've paid for.

If you've NEVER done meditation or breathwork it's a nice straightforward introduction. (Posted on September 25, 2014)

This item did not meet my expectations but perhaps that is because so much has been said already in other places, and so is inevitably repeated here. (Posted on February 16, 2014)
