Breathing articles

I work at a school and some people are interested in reading articles about breathing, but a lot of people here are christians and it may cause a stif if the article mentions the word yoga more then once. I tried looking online for articles about breathing without too much mention of yoga but just the breath from a scientific point of view. Kind of looking for an article that talks about the importance of a full exhale and full body breathing. does anyone know of a good link to an article similar to these parameters?

You can merely mention that available oxygen, as a result of our toxifying the atmosphere, makes deep breathing more critical than it might have been for our ancestors. I'm not sure why there is a need for an article. You could merely direct your friends to Google and let them fidn their own, non-offensive articles.

You could also tell them that the breath is the method for bringing oxygen into the blood strem via the lungs. Deeper, slower breathing allows the body to draw more oxygen into the blood stream.

For the doubters re: breath, ask them to hold it for three minutes and then tell you its importance.

I understand you points IA, in today socioty a lot of people like to be spoon fed and know the scientific reasons why things work. People take perscription medication because they think they trust science "if the doctors perscribe it, it must be good for us" I am trying to lead some people to some information and then from there it is up to them to drink of it or not, just like I am sure some people have lead you at one time or another and it was your choice to take what they offered.

I sent out an email where I detailed a summary of what I found most important about breath, I summarized the many things I have read, of course not perfectly though. SOme of these people that I would like to send some links to already take medication, so therefore they believe in science. So the "science of breath" they might take to more readily then yoga. and once they start researching breath they may find stuff about yoga on their own. But in the school system a mass email about yoga would be taboo. I have looked through different searches and have a hard time finding a concise article that is too the point and deals with it scientifically and thought someone here may have run across on at one point or another

Hi Tubeseeker,

check this out : Tony Robbins Breathing Exercise: www.energiseforlife....athing_exercises.php

I found this a while ago searching for the information about the lymphatic system.
