Publisher's Summary

We can do more with this life. We all know it, we all wish for it, but just how to do itthat eludes us. In his new book, A Life Worth Breathing, internationally renowned yoga teacher and spiritual philosopher Max Strom shows us the way. His groundbreaking book reaches past expected dogma in a language that is vital, inspired, and accessible. Strom leads us on a journey of self-discovery as we excavate our past in order to have a better understanding of our present.

According to Max Strom, We live in fear of terrorism but in actuality the most devastating terrorism comes from within us as we sabotage ourselves.” With practical techniques, A Life Worth Breathing offers us a path to transformation with visionary insights on forgiveness, gratitude and self-empowerment. The teachings are rooted in Yoga, Sufism and Eastern philosophy, but make no mistake, this is not just another yoga book of postures, it is a guidebook for living.

A Life Worth Breathing teaches us that by healing our past emotional wounds, silencing the inner critic that cripples us, and cultivating a yoga and breathing practice, we can elevate ourselves from the mindset of a reactionary victim to a higher level of awareness and empowerment. With these life skills we can achieve our true destiny, that of a fully integrated soul living an authentic life of meaning, success and joy. A life worth living, a life worth breathing.

    Story
    "Inspiring!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Life Worth Breathing to be better than the print version?

    I would highly recommend listening to Strom's reading of his book, 'A life worth breathing' if you're performing yoga for the mental and spiritual benefits as well as physical. This book helped me connect with the sense of purpose that focusing on the now during yoga, as well as life, provided me. It's a quick listen, I got through it in a week, listening about an hour a day on my headphones while I was getting other things done.


    What did you like best about this story?

    N/A


    Have you listened to any of Max Strom’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No

    Story
    "Exceptional Book and Narration"
    Would you listen to A Life Worth Breathing again? Why?

    I have listened to this book several times and become inspired with each listening experience. Authors are not always the best to read their own work but in this case, Max Strom was the perfect narrator.


    What other book might you compare A Life Worth Breathing to and why?

    I might compare it to some of Wayne Dyers books which I would consider to be a compliment since I love Wayne Dyer. It was uplifting and gave me insights into my own life and yoga practice.


    Any additional comments?

    As a yoga teacher, I have found many ways to use the ideas in his book in my classes. Hopefully I can take one of his workshops in the future.

    Story
    "Beautiful"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand the underlying principles of yoga - but as well as the value of the content in its own right, I would thoroughly recommend the experience of actually listening rather than reading. I couldn't wait to get back to it at every opportunity.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The chapter on kindness is particularly inspiring, and the entire book is laced with compassionate and gentle wisdom.


    What about Max Strom’s performance did you like?

    Max Strom reads his own work well, with a wonderfully calming and soothing voice that never once becomes irritating. Listening to this book is like spending time with a very loving and reassuring friend.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I don't think this book could be made into a film.
