Breath Taking offers an easy and provocative program that uses human instinct as the basis for maximizing the 20,000 breaths we take every day. Through a series of 15-second, 1-minute, and 5-minute breathing techniques, author Dr. Lorin Roche helps readers tap into the basic human instincts: eating, exploring, homing, resting, playing, grooming, mating, hunting, self-expression, and healing. Accessing the hunting instinct can increase confidence and aggression levels -- key elements to a successful business interview. Nerves can be calmed before public speaking by tapping into the resting instinct. And the mating instinct can improve intimacy -- and even increase the intensity of orgasm.
The 60 techniques in Breath Taking have been developed through work with vocal coaches, yoga instructors, athletic coaches, divers, Lamaze instructors, and others who use breath to enhance awareness, promote relaxation, improve performance, and focus concentration. The simple, effective exercises can be practiced anywhere, making Breath Taking the most practical guide to using breath to improve the quality of life.
