James Nestor is a New York Times Bestselling author of Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art, and journalist for Scientific American, The New York Times, National Public Radio, and more.
His freediving experience with some of the best breath holders led him to an exploratory journey to learn about the lost art of breath. The answers aren’t found in pulmonology labs, but in the muddy digs of ancient burial sites, secret Soviet facilities, New Jersey choir schools, and the smoggy streets of São Paulo.
Modern research is showing us that making even slight adjustments to the way we inhale and exhale can jump-start athletic performance; rejuvenate internal organs; halt snoring, asthma, and autoimmune disease; and even straighten scoliotic spines. None of this should be possible, and yet it is.
I hope this conversation was as fascinating for you as it was for me.
