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.
