"I have been a terrible breather--a chronic hyperventilator when I
get tired and stressed--for my entire life. And then I met Ashley:
She taught me how to focus on the exhale, to fully empty my
lungs--and in the process, she gave me back control over this issue
that has plagued my adult life."
--Elise Loehnen, Chief Content Officer, goop
"Living in 'survival mode' in our 24/7 world has health
consequences on our moods, weight, hormones, immune system--even
our outlook on life. The breath is the most important tool we have
for finding and sustaining inner calm. How to Breathe is a
beautiful touchstone filled with simple practices that can help you
to shift quickly from feeling overwhelmed, out of balance, and
frazzled into a sense of well-being--something we all want more of
in this day and time."
--Aviva Romm, MD, author, The Adrenal Thyroid Revolution
