Breath - New Science of a Lost Art

If we're alive, we breathe - and yet more than 90% of us do it incorrectly. James Nestor meets cutting-edge scientists at Harvard and experiments on himself in labs at Stanford to see the impact of bad breathing. He mines the wisdom of swim coaches, Indian mystics, stern-faced Russian cardiologists, Czechoslovakian Olympians and New Jersey choral conductors - the world's foremost 'pulmonauts' - to show how breathing properly can allow our bodies to absorb more oxygen, with benefits like warding off anxiety, improving focus and losing weight.
