The Art and Science of äsis Breathing


IT’S A FACT . . .



In the well-known, twenty-year prospective Framingham Study, medical researchers concluded that second only to age, one’s ability to take a deep breath is the single best predictor of longevity. This is not surprising, given that breathing is your most vital connection to the outer world — just five minutes without it and life ceases. And the breath goes far beyond the lungs…every cell in your body is breathing, firing molecules of food with oxygen to satisfy your moment-to-moment energy needs. So how well you breathe is the foundation of your vitality, health and life expectancy.

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn the art of äsis breathing­—a powerful, step-by-step method that will profoundly enhance the quality of your life.

You will learn how to:

  • Use your core muscles to breathe deeply and efficiently.
  • Tone your pelvic floor for postural support.
  • Calm your mind on the go.
  • Treat low back pain, headache and incontinence.
  • Boost your sex life.
  • Improve sleep.
  • Increase vitality.

Because every aspect of your life is intimately interconnected, incorporating this easy, twenty-minute practice in your daily routine can powerfully galvanize positive lifestyle changes that can last a lifetime.

What to bring:

  • A towel to lie on
  • Perhaps, a small pillow for your head
  • An empty stomach
  • An open mind

After completing a BA in physics from the University of Colorado, an MD from Northwestern University, and a Family Medicine residency at the top-ranked Community Hospital of Sonoma County, Dr. Jia journeyed to Japan and China for intensive training in martial arts and acupuncture. Returning to Boulder, Colorado in 1984, Dr. Jia established the Still Mountain Clinic, which he directed for over twenty-five years. He holds black belts in aikido and karate, plays the bamboo flute, is a lifelong student of yoga and Zen meditation, and is learning to tango. His first presentation for Lifelong Learning, Living in the Sweet Spot, was well received by all participants.
