Publisher's Summary

The Sanskrit word pranayama means to release life energy from its bounds. When practiced correctly, this powerful form of yogic breathwork has the ability to reveal the intricate web of your thoughts, physiology, and energetic patterns, to quiet your mind and heighten receptivity, and to open you to the intrinsic radiance of Being. On Yoga Breathing, Richard Freeman, director of the Yoga Workshop in Boulder, Colorado, invites you to learn the essential principles and techniques of pranayama, including:

  • How to identify and observe your internal breath
  • Ujjayi breathing to free prana (your life energy)
  • The tree of breath practice
  • Specific guidance for lying and seated pranayama
  • And much more

Every breath you take, teaches Freeman, can serve as a guiding thread into the depths of yoga, a place of freedom and immediacy of awareness that begins on the practice mat and gradually extends into each moment of your life. Yoga Breathing distills the secrets of this essential inner work into two complete home practice sessions designed to guide you, breath by breath, to greater vitality and health. Note: Excerpted from the full-length audio course Yoga Matrix.

Useless without diagrams

It seems that while making this audio book it hasn't been realised that the description alone isn't enough. Some images are needed when he describes certain movements or positions. And no supplementary material comes with the audio book to make up for it.

Another problem is the author refers to some movement of the arms 'previously mentioned`, but this movement was not previously mentioned which makes me think this book is abbreviated from another book.

Quite annoying and not very helpful for someone who is a beginner, and not helpful ful someone who is advanced either since it is all too basic. Lots of metaphors used as filler and long pauses.
I wouldn't recommend it.
