We take about 20,000 breaths each day, and yet, most of us feel, well, breathless. Our first order of business is to relearn how to breathe through our nose, which allows us to absorb up to 20 percent more oxygen than mouth breathing. Here, expert Robert Litman shows us how breathwork can radically improve sleep, mood, and metabolic and sexual function as well as relieve anxiety, asthma, and allergies. What’s more, a good breathing practice might just be the surest path to inner peace and true self-knowledge.
