“Surely we’ve all learned to breathe?” ~ Doc Meek

Tuesday, April 5, 2011. Recently I was grateful (and shocked!) to learn that I did not know how to breathe! Surely we all learned this at birth!? Yes, and our over-scheduled lives can take away that basic infant learning.  Even babies, if they have overly-traumatic births, can fail to learn to breathe for health. ~ Doc Meek

Reader J. Roberts comments:

“I bought the book because it incorporated elements from two of my favorite exercises, yoga and walking. After reading the book front to back, I took a walk. I was amazed. It opens your senses, quiets your mind and changes your mood in a quick 15-30 minutes. It’s something you can do anywhere (your neighborhood, parks, malls, airports, work and even on a treadmill), no special clothes or equipment required, and it’s soooo easy! Read the book, get your friends to get one and read it too, then go for a walk together.”

Reader D. Kemper comments:

“What a terrific book! Despite the fact that it’s an exercise book, it is extremely engaging, and the concepts easy to follow. The challenge is to have the patience to read the book through completely so that you understand fully what Breathwalk is all about, before trying it out haphazardly.

“One reviewer felt the book was disorganized, and there should have been a brief overview chapter so the reader could quickly dive into Breathwalking.

“My good judgment tells me that the presentation of the material was quite deliberately thought through so that the reader would have a firm foundation of what to do before striking out. A Breathwalk – though its basic components are as simple as breathing and walking – requires a certain level of precision and, as importantly, consciousness of what you’re doing at any given moment, so just getting a vague idea of it wouldn’t be useful at all.

“I see a close similarity, in that respect, to yoga. Carefully learn and consciously practice a few yoga basics and you’ll immediately feel some rewards (just like learning one Breathwalk program). But you can very satisfactorily spend a whole lifetime enhancing your practice of yoga (or Breathwalk) and, in turn, continuously reap more and more benefits.

“I’d recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an exercise program that addresses physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health, is easy to do but provides you with lots of opportunity for real mastery.”


Thank you, Dr. Khalsa (not the medical Dr. Khalsa), and your co-author, Yogi Bhajan, for this enlightening book about learning to really do for health what we all thought we already knew how to do–breathe!
