Breath with James Nestor


Understanding the power of Breath. We discuss James’s experience in his clinical trial of mouth breathing for ten days and the findings that followed, the problems with long-term mouth breathing, and the powerful benefits of nasal breathing. We also discuss the development of the mouth, oral posture, and how it can be a hindrance to efficient breathing. As well as, how we can correct breathing habits, improving sleep with mouth tape, breathwork techniques and breathing for your parasympathetic.
