Breath: the foundation of health

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably never thought about learning how to breathe. After all, our body does it automatically from the moment we’re born and the doctor slaps us on the back. But as we grow up, stress causes us to fall into a pattern of superficial, shallow breathing and our body gets starved for oxygen. A lack of sufficient oxygen can contribute to many health problems, including heart disease, sleep disorders, lack of concentration and fatigue, to name a few.
