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.

After reading this book, I decided to purchase several copies to give as a gift to all of my friends for Christmas. This is a very well written book - simple, concise with so much depth and humility from the author. It uses yoga and breathing as a tool to achieve a happy, healthy and fulfilled life that not only benefit yourself but everyone around you, and eventually the world. I've been practicing yoga for a little over a year, read several books on yoga including the classics, and I place this book in my top five favorites. I believe that this book given the chance can deeply touch the lives of many and encourage a spiritually based wellness lifestyle that can help change the world.
yes, I am already on my 3rd time. So much valuable information for anyone looking to transform there life and stop playing the blame game.
Max Strom's voice is incredible. It made listening very enjoyable.
The philosophy of yoga was in there -- but not disguised with modern academic-speak. While I understand those who choose to use it -- it certainly doesn't make me feel that I am diving into myself when I have to turn on my academic brain to understand that meaning.
At one point I remember he paused, took a breath and sighed. I love that they left that in.
I already said this... but his voice. I will purchase his other books just to hear his voice again.
No. I bought this book to aid me on my spiritual journey. This was a book I would listen to bit by bit and digest it. I will listen to it over and over again as well. It is a treasure.
This is true yoga teachings.
This is a rare find.
I feel blessed to have found it.
Whenever you need to focus your meaning in life, this book will direct to in the right direction! As a Yoga teacher, I constantly remind my students to Breath and take deeper and longer breaths.
This book in audio is relaxing to listen to, and the message is true.
Thank you for coming into my life!!
The knowledge and exercises.
One that I want to listen to over and over again to absorb the knowledge.
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.
Loved it. Max is a very articulate and thoughtful speaker, with a naturally calming and soothing voice. He offered many thought-provoking insights in this book, and I look forward to adopting some of his approaches in my day-to-day life. Again, if you're seeking enlightenment, wisdom, and happiness in an enriched life, then this is well worth a buy.

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.
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.
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.
I appreciated that no matter what your faith is the principles in this book build upon what you already believe. It enlightens new thoughts and ways of understanding what you have been too preoccupied to see.
I love that he teaches you how to breathe. I noticed that through my new breathing techniques, though I am a beginner, everything is coming easier and I am less timid about failure.
I especially appreciated the segment about death. I found myself clapping to be understood in the way I also perceive it.
I will read this book again and again and I suspect each time I will learn something new!
One of the top.
Personal touch, energy, liveliness
It made me reevaluate my life and actions. Made me cry from the amount of Truth in it.
As a yoga teacher myself, it has been an invaluable discovery. And I am currently listening to it again.
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.
The chapter on kindness is particularly inspiring, and the entire book is laced with compassionate and gentle wisdom.
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.
I don't think this book could be made into a film.
"if you have one last credit, buy this"
I had one membership credit left and I used it for this amazing book. It was a gamble because I knew nothing about the author or his work, but I think I will be rereading this one for a long while to come.

"Exceptional and Insightful"
The best, If you are looking to deepen your yoga practice or simply breathe your way into a healthier and more meaningful life buy this audiobook.
The author, who introduces just enough personal anecdotal information and comes across as a humble, sincere human being with authenticity and integrity and a genuine desire to share his life experience to help us realise our potential to heal and live joyful meaningful lives.
This is not a novel
Yes, but it is best savoured and time given to practice all the excercises to build the practical skills to benefit from his teachings.
Excellent. Listen to this audiobook, learn the techniques and know experientially the benefits of putting this into practice.
"Great book about life"
