Part fitness primer, part spirituality and consciousness guide, JUST BREATHE provides essential tools for obtaining optimal health, mentally, emotionally and physically, and explores the wide-ranging benefits of Breath Mastery that include the management of acute and chronic pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD, weight loss and insomnia, as well as improving intuition, creativity, mindfulness, self-esteem, and leadership.
Brulé notes that he teaches breathwork as a formula for personal transformation in which three basic skills are taught: awareness (the consciousness factor, “Wake up!”), relaxation (the release factor, “Let go!”), and breathing (the energy factor, “Take charge!”). “Every bit of healing and growth can be linked to one of these three elements,” Brulé says.
“Real power and magic comes from blending them and simultaneously engaging in these three elements deliberately and consistently. In practice, we increase, expand, and refine our awareness. We use breath to relax more quickly and deeply and in more situations. And we learn breath control that results in more energy and aliveness, comfort and pleasure, and personal power and resilience.”
“As with any art or skill,” Brulé explains, “the key to excellence or greatness is in understanding and applying the fundamentals… When it comes to breathwork, there are two basic aspects: Breath Awareness and Conscious Breathing,” he says.
“You can think of these as yin and yang, active and passive aspects of the practice. Breath Awareness means paying close attention to the breath as you allow it to come and go on its own, by itself. Conscious Breathing means that you deliberately control, direct and regulate breathing in some way. You give the breathing a certain quality or a specific pattern. You breathe with a conscious intention. You are creative. It is essential for us to learn to flow back and forth between active and passive, between doing and being, between breathing the breath and letting the breath breathe us.”
An effective resource for achieving and maintaining great health and a balanced psyche through breathwork, JUST BREATHE contains transformative details that benefit body, mind and soul.
“It takes 110 percent commitment to reach the level of Breath Mastery that Dan has obtained through decades of study, research, and practice. JUST BREATHE is his definitive handbook, testament, and revelation that once you pay attention to your breath and master its true power, you master your life and your outcomes.” — Tony Robbins, bestselling author, entrepreneur, philanthropist and life coach
“Breath is the ultimate key to your well-being, and if done right, it has the power to transform your entire life—physical, mental, and spiritual. Just Breathe is the definitive breathwork handbook, and Dan Brulé is the master to show you how…I love his coaching and it’s made a huge impact in my life.”
— Tony Robbins, best-selling author and life coach

“This book, which embodies Dan’s life work, draws us in, inhales us into a fresh new state of awareness, of seeing how, even in the small moments of each day, we can transform our experiences with conscious breathing. Then it breathes us out into the world with freedom from habits and limitations, with wisdom from ancient traditions and modern science, and with the knowledge that it is quite possible to heal ourselves and others using the power of our breath. Thanks to Dan for this inspirational work!”

“I am a skeptic of nearly everything. I’ve trained with the Navy, helped an NFL player get on a team, raced Grand Prix motorcycles… all high stress environments. What works? Train. Eat. Sleep. That’s what works. But wait a second… Enter Dan Brulé and his BREATHWORK. To me THIS technology is the fourth pillar of achievement. It makes a huge difference in performance, and I am all in. Today I might miss a workout, I might miss a meal, but I’ll never miss a breathing session. Welcome to the fourth pillar, and welcome Dan as your coach.”
