Breathwork explained

A clear and practical explanation of Breathwork. No weird new age stuff here just clear focused explanation and instruction. He brings in his personal experience to illustrate “The Modern Human Condition” - a condition we all undoubtedly identify with.
The first half is explanation and theory and the second half instructional. The audio version contains some very well done guided breathing sessions as well.
After practicing The Wim Hof method for a while (because it just works) I found this book fantastic as it expanded well beyond and filled in my knowledge gaps.
Highly recommended for the breathwork journey.

How do you improve on an amazing read.... turn it into an Audio book!

This gentleman has a beard that any boyish 39 year old like yours truly can only envy.

But joking aside I’ve followed the author for about a year through his YouTube and Patreon Channel.

The great benefit of the audio book is the sheer convenience of being able to listen on those occasions when you can’t just sit quietly but have to succumb to regular life and cook (or cleanup) after dinner, walk the doggy or chase a 20 month round, vainly trying to put a diaper on her!

I love the breath work sessions that Jesse has incorporated in the audiobook as being a sometimes lazy git, I can’t always be bothered to do them directly from the printed form of the book.

I’d suggest even if you are part of Jesse’s Patreon club, where he has many varied breath work sessions ready to access, this audiobook is a nice compliment to the club and also the printed book.

Of course if you’ve friends or family who aren’t avid readers, then an audio copy is a great way to introduce them to breathwork and dispel certain illusions of this practice being for just yoga aficionados!

Have fun with the audio book and be kind to each other!

AWESOME

I've read 6-7 books about breath, and breathwork. This is the best one by far. Most information, entertaining, and helpful. Thank you for writing this. I really enjoyed this.

Excellently written. Awesome information

Jesse does an incredible job. This book cuts to the chase and gets you the info you need without all the fluff. I buy 30 audible books a year and this is my first review. That’s how much he deserves it.

Jesse knows what’s up

I can’t say enough about how much I have learned from Jesse Coomer. His philosophy + methods, while incredibly deep, are approachable and yes- very practical! Thanks for the inspiration to keep exploring + practicing more + deeper breath work

Life Changing

This book and the author behind it literally changed my life. The practices and information in this book introduced me to a free, healthy, and peaceful practice that I assume anyone like myself took for granted before Jesse. Buy this book immediately and take it in, I cannot say enough good things about this book and it's author; he/it has guided me to increased levels of Happiness and Peace. Thank you Jesse!

I learned so much from this book

Such an amazing book. Easy to follow. The audio is great the man actually sounds similar to Jessie. My GF had to pull the head phones off of me because the Relaxation Breathwork put me to sleep before the music finished. Thanks for the book I learned so much

Great Book that Works as a GREAT Audiobook

Jesse's content is a real pleasure to take in through whatever medium you prefer. It's very approachable and understandable while obviously being based in research, science, and extensive experience. The great beauty of the book is that anyone can test out the breathing techniques to their preference and comfort levels. If you feel anxious, there's a breathing technique to help with that. If needing to focus ahead of a meeting, presentation, class, etc., there's a technique to help focus. If having trouble with sleep, a technique. You get the idea, and Jesse explains how it works and shares tips and advice that are useful even for someone like me, interested in breathing techniques but still the most novice of novices.

Besides that, the audio book is well-read by Chris Strong, who uses great inflection and tone in explaining even some of the most unique technical jargon and multicultural terminology I've read in a while. Really pleasant to listen to.

Finally, the audio book really enhances the great material from the book with a special final sections, which features guided breathwork sessions led by Jesse. These are perfect for anyone who is interested in going further to "dip a toe" in the practices and see if signing up for a workshop or further training is right for them. It's a great enhancement of a great book!

Helping me center in these uncertain times

I was struggling badly with anxiety and sleep. As an engineer I always wish to “understand” all aspects of my life. Jesse’s YouTube and book have helped me find ways to control myself when I spiral due to a lack of control over various aspects of my life. Not only by providing the techniques and guided breathing work but also by explaining much of the why. Thank you so much for giving me so much relief!!
