Publisher's Summary

Much of the Western world was completely unaware of the profound impact of the breath on the body and mind until the 1970s. It was during this time that Swami Rama astonished physiologists by demonstrating perfect control over his heart rate and brain waves. It was something Western scientists didn’t believe humans could possibly achieve.

In this audiobook, Swami Rama shares some of the basic breathing techniques practiced by Himalayan yogis so that you too can experience the profound effects of pranayama and breath control. The goal of Science of Breath is to present knowledge and practices regarding the breath in a way that can be applied to personal growth. This book is a masterful guide to systematically identifying bad breathing habits, replacing those habits with healthy breathing patterns, and developing control over pranic flow.

Learn how to develop and master the link between your body and mind through an understanding of the breath. With increased awareness and control of the subtle aspects of breathing, one can effect deep physical and psychological changes and begin to master the roaming tendencies of the mind. Science of Breath opens the door to a new way of being, providing a powerful tool in the pursuit of holistic health and personal growth.

Disappointing, boring and not very useful

For such a revered teacher I had higher expectations. The book was quite boring and mostly full of unnecessary, technically detailed medical information not even written by swami rama. I didn't learn anything new, interesting or useful in terms of developing my already existing pranayama practice.
Too technical for beginners and not relevant to practitioners.
