A while ago, I remember being really taken back when someone who I'd pretty much just met, told me that I wasn't breathing properly. Aside from the strangeness of the comment, I was surprised for 2 reasons
Since then I have learned a lot more about breathing, but only really in passing, so when I was introduced to Michael Townsend Williams and our conversation veered into the importance of breathing, I knew that I had to find out more, and that here was a guy who could help me to do that.
Michael a yogi, coach and entrepreneur. From being obsessed with ‘Doing’ in his advertising career to his focus on just ‘Being’ as a yoga and meditation teacher, he now works with the magic of combining and integrating these two fundamental aspects of ourselves – Being & Doing. He also teaches yoga and mindfulness to individuals, groups and organisations as StillWorks where you will also find his popular blog 'DoBeDoBe' and his 'Mindfulness Made Easy' 6 week course. And, he's recently launched a breathing app. Breathe Sync™ is his new biofeedback breathing app for iPhone which reduces stress and improves focus by synchronising your breathing with your heart through pulse analysis.
So you see - he is brilliantly placed to help me to get to grips with breathing, and how to do it better.
During today's podcast, Michael shares

Not only does it help me to stick to my meditation practice, but I also use it to measure the impact of my head trash clearance sessions.... I love nothing than to see a metric measurement to see if something I'm doing is working.... if you're intrigued as to what I mean, then all will become clear if you listen to the podcast.
