My biggest take away from Patrick McKeown’s hour and a half YouTube presentation (a recorded Zoom session) is how gentle and doable it can be for most of us to go as slow as we need, and we’ll get there – “there” being better easier healthier breathing and as a result, the potential for a happier better life.
I’m not sure how many slides he’s included, along with an excellently paced talk about many of the key points I’d 1st found in James Nestor’s book, “Breath, The New Science of a Lost Art” – but there’s enough slides shots, with enough information, I took screenshots as needed for reference; two are included here in this post.
Patrick expands on many of the topics in “Breath” – providing sample exercises to do “and” the parameters for measuring what something indicates, like with the breath hold exercises (to calm the mind and body when sensing an oxygen deficit).
So besides verbalizing the information, again in go-slow encouragement, Patrick will often pull up one of his screen-info shots, like this one –
Since this is a taped Zoom session, there’s also some interactive talk with some of the folks on the Zoom call near the end of the presentation.
All in all, it’s hard to not feel this free YouTube 90 minute session is incredibly worthwhile, esp if, like me, you’re a beginner to (as James Nestor puts it) breath, the new science of a lost art 😊
Finally, as Patrick reminds folks near the end of his presentation, the ills described as resulting via a long Covid reaction, are also far too often similar to the daily lot of all of us who don’t breathe correctly, and that’s apparently become a majority of people in our country!
I hope you’ll give his presentation a look. I watched it over a several days, absorbing the information, often being reminded by Patrick himself, there was no hurry. The anxiety of feeling unable to breathe, it turns out, is usually not helped much by hurrying ❤️
