The Sanskrit word pranayama means to release life energy from its bounds. When practiced correctly, this powerful form of yogic breathwork has the ability to reveal the intricate web of your thoughts, physiology, and energetic patterns, to quiet your mind and heighten receptivity, and to open you to the intrinsic radiance of Being.
On Yoga Breathing, Richard Freeman, director of the Yoga Workshop in Boulder, Colorado, invites you to learn the essential principles and techniques of pranayama, including:
- How to identify and observe your internal breath
- Ujjayi breathing to free prana (your life energy)
- The tree of breath practice
- Specific guidance for lying and seated pranayama, and much more
Every breath you take, teaches Freeman, can serve as a guiding thread into the depths of yoga, a place of freedom and immediacy of awareness that begins on the practice mat and gradually extends into each moment of your life. Yoga Breathing distills the secrets of this essential inner work into two complete home practice sessions designed to guide you, breath by breath, to greater vitality and health.

Review for Yoga Breathing Review by Bharathy C.k.
Very clear way of leading to breath of freedom. Demo with video would have been ideal- thank you (Posted on March 4, 2012)
Review for Yoga Breathing Review by Paul Kaye
This exceeded my expectations. Richard Freeman speaks with such clarity. I am not a yoga practitioner so I needed something simple but also wanted something profound that would give me a practice. The CD set definitely delivered what I wanted, and more. (Posted on January 13, 2012)
Review for Yoga Breathing Review by Karen Kruska
The information foumd on this CD is helpful and valuable. Howver, the way it is organized on the CD is confusing. The booklet is not really a help and perhaps if there were more information in it, it would help....like where a practice begins, what are the benefits. I find the information is much better presented in Nubia Texieras Pranayama. Do not get me wrong, Mr. Freemans teaching style is relaxed and inspiring, but it would be nice to have an outline before you begin. (Posted on August 13, 2011)

Review for Yoga Breathing Review by Satia
For anyone who is interested in exploring pranayama and is unsure where and how to begin, this introduction is perfect. Freeman's gentle and welcoming approach to pranayama, the exercises are very basic but also fundamental. A more advanced and challenging pranayama practice begins here, with these explorations of breathing. A wonderful addition to my collection and a permanent one as well. (Posted on May 20, 2010)
