by Tony Robbins


I’ve dedicated my life to helping others achieve their peak potential and lead an extraordinary quality of life. And every so often when a teacher comes into my life and teaches me something that expands my own peak experience, I have to share it with others.

That’s the case with Dan Brulé, breath master and global teacher of his program Breath Mastery. Dan can help you maximize your performance, reduce stress, boost longevity, optimize health, and ultimately transform your life. He’s known as the “Bruce Lee of breathing,” because he has drawn the best from every style and school he has explored, and because of his skill, mastery, and dedication to the art and science of breathwork. He’s taught tens of thousands of people from around the world—including business leaders, Navy SEALs, athletes, health-care practitioners, and everyday people—looking to improve their health and performance. Dan knows the breathing techniques taught and practiced by ancient yogis and enlightened mystics, elite athletes and warriors, and cutting-edge neuroscientists. Most important, he knows which techniques are best proven to work.

Did you know that 70 percent of the toxins inside our bodies are removed through our lungs? Yet studies show that we’re using less and less of our lung capacity. Think about it: When we’re stressed out, what do we do? Breathe deep or shallow? It’s surprising just how much we hold our breath—think what that does to the body and mind! And what a waste of a natural resource!

Don’t waste its power. Be conscious of it. By taking conscious control of your breathing, you harness your thoughts, energy, and body.

People always ask me: “What’s the secret to achieving results? The secret to lasting change?” My answer is that you must train yourself to become a master. To become a master at anything takes consistency, commitment, and focus. That’s what this book is offering you: the dynamic tools, techniques, and practices to teach, guide, and help you create lasting change in the quality of your life.

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. This book will show you how. It you want real change that lasts, then you owe it to yourself to start right now with this book in your hands, and master your breath.

    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.

    I am happy and very honored to be able to bring a personal contribution to Dan's book: JUST BREATHE. I have also been in the breath-teaching field for many years and so Dan and I have many things in common, and our friendship is not the least. I always start my breathing courses by saying that breathing is simple but it is not easy. Either you JUST let your autonomic nervous system do the job and breathe your life… or you ADJUST your breath and tweak it to its optimal functioning and live the full life you deserve. I love the way Dan gently enters breath mastery through awareness, relaxation and breathing. His "Wake Up!" “Let Go!” and “Take Charge" are the basics of what we all teach, but here in JUST BREATHE it is so clear and straightforward.

    Our breath is the most exquisite example of innate wisdom in action. It quietly sustains our life force while we get on with the business of our lives. Most of us have never even considered the gift and value of the breath until something comes in the way of its flow.
In 'Just Breathe', Dan succeeds in sharing a lifetime of experience and wisdom in a way that is accessible and practical but at the same time wakes us up to the magic and mystery of the breath. He makes the simple act of breathing come alive through his passion and deep insight. He guides us to develop a conscious relationship with the breath to optimize every aspect of tour lives. What a gift!

    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 have known Dan for many years through the International Breathwork Foundation. I see him as a passionate hunter, having explored, enjoyed and mastered the amazing gift that Life offers us through the breath. That gift, along with all his passion and mastery is what he offers us through Just Breathe. A very practical and inspiring book with a wide range of exercises for our daily life, and also for very specific situations and health issues. Ideal for oneself, but also to use with our peers, clients, patients, pupils and family. Don't resist the temptation to dive into it and let yourself be guided along a life-changing journey!

    In Just Breathe, Dan Brulé really explains what it means to, as the book says, just breathe. It is a fundamental part of life to breathe, so why not do it correctly? And that is exactly what Dan teaches in this book, how to breathe in a way that lets you be the healthiest you can be, and live your life one amazing breath at a time.

    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.

    Of all the experts we met during the development of the breathing chair, Dan was one of the most impressive! The breathing techniques and exercises he uses and his approach to breathwork were very new and revolutionary for us. Thanks to Dan, we now understand that breathing not only supplies oxygen to our body and releases C02 but brings our mind, body and soul to an unexpected level. “Just Breathe” is a guide to not only improving your physical, emotional and psychological health, and your performance, it is also a guide to raising your consciousness.”
