“Insightful in its breadth and simple in its presentation, The Tao of Natural Breathing offers something new… Dennis Lewis presents practices that are less about control and more about letting go. He gently entices us to allow our conscious breath to become the teacher, the healer, and the expression of our soul.” –Judith Hanson Lasater, Ph.D., P.T., author of 30 Essential Yoga Poses

“The small, comprehensive, exquisite book spreads before the reader the knowledge and guided breathing experiences necessary to begin to return to natural breathing. … a beautiful exploration of breathing. … Just reading the book is a meditative experience.”–Somatics Magazine-Journal

“By the time you finish reading this delightful book, you will probably be breathing in a new and more vital way. … Through the gentle, natural practices outlined in this book, we can all readily overcome lifelong patterns of poor breathing…”–Nathaniel Mead, Massage Therapy Journal

“The practical breathing exercises he presents here build in complexity, though all are designed to return the reader to the simplicity of conscious body experience. This holistic approach to health is a welcome respite from the no-pain, no-gain variety of fitness books.”–Library Journal

Read The Tao of Natural Breathing to Reduce Stress, Improve Your Health, Increase Your Energy, and Support Your Quest for Self-Knowledge and Self-Transformation!

As babies and young children, most of us breathed freely and naturally with our entire bodies. But our sedentary work environments and life styles, along with the ever-increasing stress of our busy lives, has conditioned many of us to shallow, constricted breathing. Many of us breathe only in our upper chests, and this undermines our health, decreases our vitality, and further increases our mental and emotional stress.

The solution is “natural breathing.” In this kind of breathing we use the full range of movement in our lungs, diaphragm, belly, and back–in fact, in our entire body–to inhale and exhale freely and fully. Through natural, authentic breathing you can: reduce stress, improve your health, increase your energy, and support your quest for consciousness, self-knowledge, and self-transformation.

Learn how you can become conscious of your unhealthy breathing patterns and integrate full, natural, healthy breathing into your life.
