How to Breathe is a book that contains breathing techniques for twenty-five specific emotional states. I think it may be a good book, especially for those who do not know anything about the subject. But I wonder if there is any better in the market.
Ashley Neese explains the importance of breath in our lives based on her own life in the first chapters of the book. In the next sections, how we should breathe in different situations from anger to creativity are described in detail. Some take only 5 minutes, while others can go up to half an hour. Of course, there are also beginner and experienced levels of these breaths. She discovered all of these techniques over the years with her clients.
I want to mention immediately that the design of the book is exquisite. Everything from the photographs to the page design has been carefully made. But I don’t know why I couldn’t like the content of the book as much as its design. Maybe it seemed too simple to me because I have been dealing with the subject for a long time. I discovered the value of breath a long time ago. If you want to learn about it, it can be a good beginners book. Enjoy!
