Editorial Reviews


Praise for BREATHE:

Breathe was a game changer for me and after only a short time of doing the exercises I was considerably improved. Not only is Dr. Belisa extremely knowledgeable about her subject, but her intuitive sense and sincere care shine through on every page of her book. Healers like Belisa are hard to come by, so I feel very fortunate to have found her."―Jen Widerstrom, trainer,The Biggest Loser

"The key to staying calm is your breathing. In this book, Dr. Belisa teaches us to breathe in a way that immediately calms us, and hence everyone around us. Simple, practical and extremely effective."―Cesar Millan, dog behaviorist and bestselling author

"Clear, simple, powerful - in her new book Dr. Belisa shows why everything starts with the breath, and how to improve your breathing for mental and physical health, energy and maximum performance. The ideas in this book ― and Dr. Belisa’s techniques ― are a revelation."―Jason Fine, managing editor,
Rolling Stone

"Revitalize sleep, energy and mood with this easily accessible program that taps into our body’s most innate health function, the breath!"―Patrick McKeown, author of
The Oxygen Advantage

Breathe is basic training for the breath. Dr. Belisa Vranich's book is a must read for anyone serious about taking control back of their health through the free medicine of breathing. I personally use these principles with my SEALFIT athletes and have seen profound results."―Mark Divine, New York Times bestselling author
8 Weeks to SEALFIT, The Way of the SEAL, and Unbeatable Mind, Founder of SEALFIT

“Dr. Vranich has managed to lay out a convincing, accessible and friendly guide to making friends with your breath. This is the book to give to someone who suffers from stress, headaches, sleeplessness, or any of the multitude of modern day ills, yet hasn’t made the connection between these conditions and something very simple: poor breathing patterns. Every single cell in the human body requires oxygen to create energy––learning to breathe more effectively may be the best thing you ever do for improving your health.”―Donna Farhi, author of
The Breathing Book

"Dr. Belisa Vranich is the real deal. Her book,
Breathe, and breathing workshops are a must for everyone looking to optimize their health and life!"―Michael Galitzer M.D., author of Outstanding Health

"We are living at a time when we are so caught up in 'doing things' and trying to keep up with the rapid escalation of information and media that we often forget to stay connected to that which is most essential -
BREATHING. Rudolf Steiner informs us that the average person breathes 25,900 times daily. How we breathe has a radical influence on the balance of our autonomic nervous system, our acid/alkaline balance, our digestion and elimination, and our posture and the muscles themselves. Dr. Belisa Vranich has put together a simple, effective program to help anyone learn to breathe effectively, which is an essential first step to body-mind integration."―Paul Chek, Holistic Health Practitioner, Founder, C.H.E.K Institute

Breathe expertly combines relevant science, repeated inspiration and pinpoint guidance to propel readers to develop a fundamental tool to restore their health: a regular breathing practice. With this book, Dr. Belisa Vranich lays out in plain English ― and wonderful humor ― how to reclaim your vitality and reboot your body by doing something we all forgot how to do long ago ― breathe!"―Anthony J. Lyon, MD, Medical Director, The Ash Center, NYC

"I was smiling - and breathing! - as I read Dr. Belisa's wonderful book,
Breathe. With a great sense of humor, and an even greater understanding of her craft, she reminds us how breathing is our birthright, despite its neglect by modern (wo)man. She further connects us to our breath with relevant hows and whys, and empowers us to reclaim respiration with practical exercises. A full, deep breath benefits us on so many levels; I frequently recommend breath work to patients and am delighted to now be able to recommend this book." ― Stephanie Marango, MD, RYT, founder of i.m.body, author of Your Body and The Stars

"Over the last few years, it's been refreshing to see some individuals in the fitness industry shedding light on the importance of proper breathing and the benefits it has on one's overall well being. BREATHE differentiates itself from the pack in its thorough explanation of proper body mechanics. I've had the fortunate experience of working and studying with Dr. Belisa, and as a result have had tremendous success with my own training as a martial artist, fitness enthusiast, and firefighter. I have also applied her methods in training clients, students, and probationary firefighters in understanding the proper breathing techniques, which has led to their own success. BREATHE will teach the beginner and the elite athlete alike how to take the necessary steps in an easy-to-understand system to feeling and looking better."―Joe March, Firefighter, NASM CPT CES MMASC, BJJ blackbelt

"Dr. Belisa Vranich draws on her years of clinical knowledge, skills, and insights to provide critical information in a direct way.
Breathe equips us with essential and innovative tools that allow us to rejuvenate our physical and mental well-being."―Dr. Adeyinka M. Akinsulure-Smith, Senior Supervising Psychologist at the Bellevue/NYU Program for Survivors of Torture and Associate Professor at the City College of New York and The Graduate Center, City University of New York

"The concept of breathing awareness may strike some readers as far-fetched and unsubstantiated by scholarly research, but Vranich will win them over with her detailed descriptions of strenuous-sounding but practical exercises to expand lung capacity and improve diaphragm strength. For those suffering from shortness of breath or ailments related to breathing or core strength, this work and its accompanying exercises depict an appealing and methodical program for improvement."―
Publishers Weekly

Testimonials for Dr. Vranich's Breathing Class:
"With her remarkable talent for making important health information poignant and practical, Dr. Belisa is a wealth of information like no other." ―Lisa Oz, Radio and television personality, six-time New York Times Bestselling Author including
You: The Owner’s Manual series

"I left Dr. Belisa’s feeling like I was walking on air."―Drew Grant,
New York Observer

"A lightheaded, blissed-out state that, for some, borders on hallucinogenic. Even Xanax can’t compare."―Katie Becker,
W Magazine

Breathwork and meditation is the most successful way to do this, and Dr. Belisa teaches this in an easy, fast way.
