How To Breathe-A Book By Ashley Neese

“Let’s face it, we all feel tired at times and need an extra pick-me-up. Whether you’re kicking that a.m. caffeine habit, dragging the kids off to school, or feeling a midday lull coming on, the Energy Breath is a fun way to engage your breath and body for an anytime uplifting boost”

I can relate to Ashley’s book quote above 100%, and use this Breath technique all the time! It’s easy to do sitting as well as standing and I do this sitting at my desk during the day while working. It not only gives me a boost of much needed energy, but relieves stress as well. This is defiantly a Breath technique I enjoy doing. ~Lisa Bartels, Administrative Assistant, PRS, WRAP Level 1 Facilitator, A.S.I.S.T
