Editorial Reviews

Breath penetrates, breath invigorates, and breath heals.

Introducing the highly anticipated DVD, Learn to Breathe, to Heal Yourself and Your Relationships, from internationally renowned yoga teacher, Max Strom. In this DVD you will learn and integrate breathing exercises and gentle movement, the effect of these can lead to profound inner calm, enhanced energy, and mental clarity. Other benefits may include an increased ability to give up addictions, such as smoking. Once people have experienced the power of their own breath, they understand why it is called life force.

Max Strom is known for inspiring and impacting the lives of his students and has become one of the most revered and respected Yoga Teachers in the US and abroad. Founder of Sacred Movements, Center for Yoga and Healing in Los Angeles, he now travels worldwide teaching and lecturing on breathing, yoga, and personal transformation.

This home practice DVD takes the student through Max's signature Learn to Breathe workshop. It is extremely practical and easy to understand and requires no background in yoga to receive the full benefits. Max speaks on how the breath affects us in the context of our mind, our body, and especially our emotions. Several simple but meaningful exercises are offered with clear and safe directions.

"This practice is for everyone; every nationality, gender, religion and age, even those in wheelchairs. This DVD is for anyone who wants to improve the quality of their health, vitality, and relationships." - Max Strom

5.0 out of 5 stars Impactful - important for all! November 14, 2007
By MC
Wonderful DVD that focuses on something so central to our existence and quality of life. I was introduced to pranayama breathing through yoga, but clearly, not to this extent. Max Strom does a thorough job detailing the benefits of proper breathing, providing helpful practice sessions, and offering thought-provoking insight that guides one to a new perception.

I've watched parts of this video repeatedly already, and I get something each time. It's educational (amazing how much I didn't realize about something so elemental as breathing), and it's a great reminder that we all possess this ability, this inherent tool, when harnessed properly, that can be so impactful to our relationships and the way we live with one another. Breathing [properly] should not be overlooked or taken for granted, and neither should this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love what this did for me! October 31, 2007
I've been doing yoga for several years and have never gotten the full grasp of what Ujjayi breathing was. I also have asthma and have always struggled to get full breaths. I watched and did the breathing exercises in this dvd the other night and was AMAZED at the difference in my breathing the next morning in my yoga practice. I finally was able to breath with the same sounds I've heard for so long on dvds and in class.

I have continued to practice the breathing here and there while driving the car, going through my daily activities and feel so refreshed and in command of my breathing. I highly recommend this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Innate Healer, Palo Alto, CA February 14, 2008
Beautiful. Inspiring. Life Changing.
Mr. Strom's latest DVD is another example of his profound and accessible style of teaching. I write this review out of deep respect for his work.
If you are looking for tools to lift your health and well being to another level you found a good one.
Whether you decide to integrate the breath work taught on this DVD into your yoga practice or into your daily life, you will notice tremendous changes. Expansion, deep peace and happiness are just some of the side effects you might experience.
As someone who has taken many of Mr. Strom's workshops and as the manager of a large yoga center in the San Francisco Bay Area I do recommend his teachings highly and on a daily basis. It is an honor to spread the word about the gifts he brings into this world. He is a heart-centered, intelligent, and innovative teacher. Someone you trust from the bottom of your heart. Check his website [...] - if you ever have the opportunity to experience him in person, don't let it pass. He teaches around the world and yet, he remains humble, sweet, and accessible. You will love him.

5.0 out of 5 stars healing with breath February 9, 2008
By Attune
Verified Purchase
I have had allergy based asthma for over 40 years. As a 9 year old child I was at a residential asthma center in Colorado while my family continued to live in Missouri. The asthma center is the first place that taught me how to breath to facilitate the opening of the bronchials and to increase the capacity of the lungs. After traditional and alternative medicine as well as a lot of work within myself, my asthma is almost gone. I continue to look within myself as well as for excercises, meditations etc. that will facilitate the release of the remaining asthma.

Max Strom's Learn to Breathe DVD has provided me with what I believe is one of the final pieces in my quest for an asthma free life. I enjoy all of the excercises. My personal favorite is what I call the 3 minute breath in which one breaths as slowly as possible for 3 minutes. At the end of the 3 minutes you note how many breaths you have taken (an inhale and exhale count as one breath). It is still amazing to me the watch the process and the progress that happens with this simple excercise.

In addition to the excercises I appreciate Max's explanation of how our busy lives affect our breathing.

My only wish is that it was possible to do all of the breathing lessions consecutively without stopping between each one.

Buy this breath DVD as it will change your life (asthma or not).

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy the DVD and RELAX December 20, 2008
Verified Purchase
Having practiced yoga over 3 decades, and qi gong the past 6 years, I own wide collection of yoga practice videos. Max Strom's "Learn to Breathe" is far and away unique from the rest. The video is beautifully done, and the practice is deceptively easy to do, yet the results are phenomenal. Following Max's breathing practice I better handle whatever comes my way thruout my day. Do yourself a favor and buy this DVD. You won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good DVD - wish it was longer December 26, 2007
Verified Purchase
Max Strom is a wonderful teacher... the breathing techniques taught in this DVD are very calming, which was my main goal to achieve. My only wish is that the DVD was longer. I recommend this item to those who are intersted in using breathing techniques to calm the mind and body... but I also recommend buying it on sale for less than $15.

5.0 out of 5 stars A valuable introduction to Pranayama February 15, 2008
Max Strom is a gifted teacher who in his new DVD exposes us to different forms of breathwork, or pranayama. Pranayama is a tool that has been used for thousands of years to calm the body and mind or achieve sprirtual transformation. This DVD is simple to use and easy to understand. Max has a calm, gentle energy that ties the whole DVD together. Highly recomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A basic necessity for every yogi March 15, 2008
I was lucky enough to be a beginner studying with Max, and I have to say that his emphasis on breathing is what makes his yoga practice. Drawing from all his teachings on breathing over the years of teaching, he's made a perfectly simple, elegant, and instructive DVD which will teach you all the basics of breathing and how central it is to all our life, not just our yoga practice.
There's nothing esoteric about it, no strange jargon, just some simple lessons about our breath and beginning exercises that easily incorporate into your practice. It is suitable for all ages, conditions of health, and even locations... you'll find yourself practicing these techniques in your most uncomfortable situations. I would say this video is a great addition to one's yoga practice, but I wonder if anybody really has a yoga practice without such an understanding of breath.
