”In our breath there is so much power to be harnessed, so much grace to be found. It is the fuel for our internal furnace that ignites and nourishes the nervous system, lungs, and heart. The breath is the liberator of our emotions, casting out grief, fear and anger from our core. Once you have experienced the power of your own breath, you will understand why it is called life force.” ~ Max Strom
"I thought I knew how to breathe until I experienced Max Strom’s breathing workshop. He guided me to a depth and openness I didn't know was available. My heart, my breath, my spirit are nourished deeply by his teachings." ~ Janet Stone, yoga teacher and trainer
