I have picked a few of the different techniques to try (my favourite being box breathing) and will probably dip back in to try some others.

    Excellent! Clear and easy to read and the 21-day breathing programme gives you a practical introduction to the value of adding breathwork to your health programme. Highly recommend all healthcare professionals and people interested in improving their health and wellness read this book and do the breathing exercises.

    I think this is one of the worst non-fiction books I have ever read, and I have read many, including plenty of pretty poor ones. Few have frustrated me quite as much as this one. It is poorly written, completely unscientific, almost devoid of references, packed with fluff and filler, and, worst of all, completely impractical. I think that it will leave more readers more confused about breathwork than they were before they read it.

Few have frustrated me quite as much as this one. It is poorly written, completely unscientific, almost devoid of references, packed with fluff and filler, and, worst of all, completely impractical. I think that it will leave more readers more confused about breathwork than they were before they read it. I'm utterly confused about why this book is well regarded or why Tony Robbins decided to write the foreword. He doesn't seem to be alone, as there are plenty of 5 star reviews here on Goodreads, but I really don't think they are well deserved. Let me explain why in a little more detail. The first big problem with this book is that despite being written in 2017, it makes almost no effort to describe the fairly extensive scientific research that has been done in the field of breathwork. There are some vague allusions, but nothing in the way of actual explanation, let alone scientific references. That's pretty shocking for a book that purports to the be the go to resource on breathing. Most of the book is filled with anecdotes, some of which don't even seem to have a tenuous link to the purported theme. I don't have any issue with an author wanting to share what he thinks are his best stories, but he should probably do so in his memoirs rather than in a work that is supposed to be a practical guide. Last but certainly not least, rather than offer any critical reflection on different disciplines, let alone any distillation down to the most important ones, he literally just very briefly describes absolutely every approach to breathwork possible. He offers almost no advice on how to decide what approach to use, nor any perspective on which are the most useful in which contexts. His 21 day programme basically amounts to just trying everything once for one day. It's the stuff of blog listicles. After having read this book, I'm really not left with any clarity on how to apply breathwork in my life, nor why I would want to, other than Brule's unsupported assertions and references to new age mumbo jumbo. To be fair, he also evokes every possible religion under the sun and makes some kind of vague connection to breathwork, but none of it is very convincing. My advice to you dear potential reader and aspiring breathwork practitioner is simple: don't read this book; just breathe.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Great to know that breathing is important. The author mentions: 1) Perform inhale and exhales every 5 seconds (preferably using the nose) 2) Breatholding for vasodilation (increase CO2) for "treating" asthma 3) Yawn more often: breath in and out during the yawn (big inhales and sighs of relief: pant like a happy dog) 3 times a day for 2 minutes. Breathing in compassion and breathing out gratitude and sigh more 4) Perform the Sniff and poo: 2/4 powerful inhale through the nose and blow the breath out Great to know that breathing is important.

Vizualize success and add affirmations 8) Observe breathing patterns when experiencing different emotions

    There is some serious stuff to breathwork. Stuff that can make you stronger. Stuff that can make you sharper. Stuff that can make you more impenetrable to pain. Stuff that can make you de-stress. Stuff that can make you live longer. Have you ever given thought to CPR? You are literally being given life back through breath. "Focus and perfect your breathing more often, and get a better quality of life always." (That's my quote) Loved this read, and I'm not a hippie, nor do I overly enjoy granola.

    This is the first time i have ever read a book on breathing or spirituality. I must say this is a book NOT about religion or some hard to believe things, but pure and practical advise on different ways to breathe and what those techniques can do to your life and day to day living. The book at first does feel overwhelming with lot of breathing exercises, but in the end summarizes a 21 day routine that is very helpful.

I have started to feel more calm and composed, with less anxiety and more gratitude towards life after reading this book and i am sure it will help you all a lot. I tried all breathing exercises as i was reading, but in the end i am just following 2-3 breathing exercises daily for 5-10 minutes or whenever i can remember them. Hope you all will find this useful

    This is an incredible book that shows us the power of breathing and how the way in which you breathe and the awareness of your breath can truly impact the experience you are having no matter what you are facing. Dan Brule, someone who Tony Robbins uses and highly reccommends, explains how he has been able to train people from the military to world class athletes on controlling their breath in order to help them achieve optimal performance.

Dan Brule, someone who Tony Robbins uses and highly reccommends, explains how he has been able to train people from the military to world class athletes on controlling their breath in order to help them achieve optimal performance. How is it that there are famous yogiis who can sit in ice cold weather completely naked? There are so many types of breathing methods that this books teaches us as it relates to holding your breath in for 5 seconds, and then breathing out for 5 seconds, or changing the length of either the inhale or the exhale as well. The key is to do these a few times a day for a few minutes as eventually you become much more aware of your breath in various situations and the awarness is what ultimately allows you to focus on it and hten change it to suit your purposes when in need. It really is incredible that the pain and the experience is not so much about the outcome as it is about how we choose to perceive it. When you realize that you can control the experience through your breath, it is such a powerful feeling and I just need to ensure I take a few minutes everyday to be still and work on this breathing to see the real impact it has on me

    Wasn't exactly what I was looking for in a book about breathing but there were some helpful exercises and lots of references to other practices that individuals could try. This book seemed to focus more on the spiritual grounding of a lot of breath work, whereas I was more interested in the practical physiological changes brought about by different deliberate breathing patterns. Personally, I felt more pages were spent on background for different teachers referenced than was necessary.

    I learned how the breath impacts the physical, mental, and emotional components of our health. I am learning that breathwork is not a one size fits all exercise. I felt overwhelmed by ALL the different types of breathing exercises. I do appreciate giving multiple types of breathing exercises to find the one that best fits your style and life, but I don't want to take the time to try them all. There were some large generalized claims on how breathwork could cure/heal certain ailments. I am a skep I learned how the breath impacts the physical, mental, and emotional components of our health.

    Breathwork is self-help, self-healing method in alternative healing atmosphere. I find it has taken time to learn the 3 skills: Awareness (the consciousness factor) - Wake Up! , Relaxation (the release factor) - Let Go!, and the Breathing (energy factor) - Take Charge! and I am still working on them so I have decided to purchase a copy after volunteering to read an ARC. Dan gives a lot of biographical material on his life which is interesting but not crucial to the book.

    Well, it really depends on what you want from a book, but this book is more of a summary of all the breathing techniques out there. The style is very American (as in selling breath work to the reader), which is not my favourite style. So yes, if you want to be sold breathwork and learn about (quite quickly) all the techniques, you should read this book. If you want more in-depth reading, this is not the book you should read.

    I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed a whole book on breathing and breath work. The book was broken up into sections on how breath work can help your body, mind, spirit and beyond. There were great little exercises sprinkled throughout the book. “The Key to Ultimate Transformation” pretty much summed up how one could benefit from diving into the breath, your readiness to do so will bring you what you seek. I’ll be moving onto the 21 day breath mastery challenge and seeing how that goes.

    A brilliant book to give you an overview and an insight into the importance of breath and breathing to help us in our life, on our journey through life and its challenges. Health and clam incentives abound. With a few exercises to work through. A must read for the health concise of mind and body. 4 stars solely as felt a little lite on the exercises.

    Very informative look into breathwork and all the various practices. An easy-to-follow approach with actionable steps throughout the book. Anyone looking into improving their life without physically depleting themselves would benefit greatly from spending some time implementing the practices discussed in the book.

    I found the comprehensive collection of different breathing exercises very interesting and useful. I am no beginner with the topic, but still I found new exercises here. The problem for me with the book is the unscientific and a bit woo woo approach to breathing effects. On the other hand, for someone else, this approach might be a strength of the book.

    Great book to consider the larger benefits of conscious breathwork. I have trained with Dan in person and really enjoy his work. He simplifies and makes accessible centuries of lineages for people with both an established practice and those just trying to jump start theirs. Peter

    Never knew there's so many breathing methods! Most of the tips are very useful, more interesting in the beginning chapters and feels a bit dragging on later chapters. But will still recommend this book for people wanting to learn more about breathing exercise. Never knew there's so many breathing methods!
