Are you in a low vibrational state? Is your breath compromised by stress? Renegade pharmacist, breath work expert Niraj Naik offers advice and exercises to bring balance and harmony back in your body & mind with breathing exercises. You’ll learn about the benefits of breath types (reduced breathing, breath holds, nose breathing, diaphragm/belly breathing), the root lock, and the power of guided rhythmic breathing meditation.

The quality of every breath we take matters! It’s quite miraculous that we humans breathe without making a conscious effort, and our breath adapts to all circumstances: eating, sleeping, exercising, etc.  Did you know? Shallow breathing can negatively affect our health (and the opposite is true too.)

When you learn to breathe better you can slow down, reverse the aging process, and improve your health.
