Description

Unlock the physical and mental benefits of deep, restorative breathing with entry-level yoga anyone can do

The phrase “take a breather” is more than a figure of speech: It hints at a truth about the human body. When we’re stressed, overtired, or overwhelmed with emotion, truly focused breathing recharges both body and mind. That’s why conscious breathing is a cornerstone of both yoga and mindfulness—and a growing health practice in its own right.

Breathe Slower, Deeper, Better is an illustrated, quick-start guide to this essential skill. First, yoga instructor Yael Bloch helps readers evaluate their breathing patterns and provides a grounding in basic anatomy. Then, she explains how to build better daily habits for improved health and quality of life. Her twenty-plus illustrated exercises, inspired by principles of yoga and meditation, will help readers boost their overall health, as well as address specific concerns such as digestive issues, insomnia, and anxiety.

Invest just a few minutes a day—and make deep breathing a habit that helps you all the time!
