Breathing made relaxing and simple! Not only are you guided in the breathing lessons through the mental process, you are taught at great length how each step is physically practiced, how it should feel if performed properly, and taught various feedback methods to ensure proper breathing.
One reviewer here says directly that it is "eastern slant" "new agey nonsense." While the instructor in the DVD makes mention at the beginning of the DVD about the origins of the technique and gives some insight into those origins- it is the shortest part of the DVD and does not require any belief or change in thought in the at home viewer! I'm really unsure if the reviewer has even viewed or followed along with the DVD!
I am posting to make potential buyers aware that I saw significant and immediate (within 3 days for myself) benefit from this practice that I believe all could obtain. If only I had seen this DVD after my lumbar (L4L5) fusion in 2003!
Much thanks to the instructor if you ever read this.
If your looking for some pointless eastern slant philosophy with a pure touch of new agey nonsense, then you found your dvd. If you'd like some real world breathing techniques then spend your money elsewhere!
Bad descriptions, no real content, dont waste the money. wish i had gotten a refund.
