In developing T5T (The Five Tibetans & Energy Breathing Program) I was very mindful of the importance that breathing plays in maintaining health and extending life. I was also aware that the original version of the Rites is very basic in its explanation on breathing, saying just 'Take a Few Deep Breaths'.

I therefore consulted a colleague; world renowned breathing expert Michael Grant White to help me develop the breathing philosophy and exercises in T5T. The result was "Energy Breathing" - a variation of the ‘three-part breath.' Energy Breathing expands your breathing capacity, slows down your breathing rate, raises energy in the body and calms your mind.

Mike has a series of breathing tests on his website that you can take for FREE. Over 40,000 people have taken these tests. Now is your chance to find out how well you breathe. Click on this link FREE BREATHING TESTS

He also has a free downloadable E Book on breathing which is incredibly informative and thought provoking.

Poor breathing patterns can seriously affect your physical health as well as your mental and emotional well being.

With a high percentage of raw foods the respiratory system is responsible for eliminating approximately 70% of your metabolic waste. The remainder should be eliminated through defecation 3%, urination 8% and perspiration 19%. So, if you think that going to the bathroom every day is important, or that of working up a sweat now and then is healthy - think again about the value of full free optimal breathing!

To get the most out of any type of healing work and more importantly life - developing optimal breathing habits is one of the most valuable things you can do.

There is more to breathing than just sucking in air once in a while. Click on the banner below and do the breathing tests for FREE.

How good is your breathing?

I wish you all a full, deep, slow, easy breath!

Have you tried those breathing tests yet Raj? Pretty interesting! It's good to use them say every 6 months or so to see how you have improved. There's been a definite change for me, since I first did them a couple of years ago.

Yes, over a minute is great.

T5T has been going well, but I have had a bit of a forced break from everything as my mum got ill with cancer and I took care of her until she died in June. Miss her a lot of course, but at least her pain and suffering is over.

Have not seen T5T in yoga journal. Would love to get the link? Thanks! Bye for now!
