AllMusic Review by

YOGA BREATHING is an excellent introduction to pranayama, the yogic science of breath control. Pranayama is one of the most important aspects of yoga study and it is necessary in most meditative disciplines. Proper training in pranayama can help to still the mind into restorative and healing states, and assist in the realization of the self. It is the first step in allowing the mind to override emotional and physical responses. Richard Freeman has studied and taught yoga for over 30 years and is the director of the Yoga Workshop in Boulder, Colorado. His experience as a teacher is evident in the soft, melodic voice he uses to narrate this CD. On YOGA BREATHING, listeners learn the basics of breath control, how to find and identify the "internal breath," and Freeman?s own "breath of life" technique. The proper body positions for each pranayama practice are listed in the extensive liner notes. YOGA BREATHING features two complete at-home lessons with variation suggestions that will keep listeners coming back to their practice. This CD is ideal for anyone who is either beginning a home-yoga practice or studying meditation.
