Publisher's Summary

We can do more with this life. We all know it, we all wish for it, but just how to do itthat eludes us. In his new book, A Life Worth Breathing, internationally renowned yoga teacher and spiritual philosopher Max Strom shows us the way. His groundbreaking book reaches past expected dogma in a language that is vital, inspired, and accessible. Strom leads us on a journey of self-discovery as we excavate our past in order to have a better understanding of our present.

According to Max Strom, We live in fear of terrorism but in actuality the most devastating terrorism comes from within us as we sabotage ourselves.” With practical techniques, A Life Worth Breathing offers us a path to transformation with visionary insights on forgiveness, gratitude and self-empowerment. The teachings are rooted in Yoga, Sufism and Eastern philosophy, but make no mistake, this is not just another yoga book of postures, it is a guidebook for living.

A Life Worth Breathing teaches us that by healing our past emotional wounds, silencing the inner critic that cripples us, and cultivating a yoga and breathing practice, we can elevate ourselves from the mindset of a reactionary victim to a higher level of awareness and empowerment. With these life skills we can achieve our true destiny, that of a fully integrated soul living an authentic life of meaning, success and joy. A life worth living, a life worth breathing.

A wonderful listen and well read. Max’s voice is easy to listen to and the advice is timely for me.
I start beginners Hatha yoga in 5 weeks time and have also begun to let go of the clutter I have seemed to amass. Sage advice.

A true teacher.

What made the experience of listening to A Life Worth Breathing the most enjoyable?

Max Strom's voice is incredible. It made listening very enjoyable.

The philosophy of yoga was in there -- but not disguised with modern academic-speak. While I understand those who choose to use it -- it certainly doesn't make me feel that I am diving into myself when I have to turn on my academic brain to understand that meaning.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Life Worth Breathing?

At one point I remember he paused, took a breath and sighed. I love that they left that in.

What does Max Strom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I already said this... but his voice. I will purchase his other books just to hear his voice again.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. I bought this book to aid me on my spiritual journey. This was a book I would listen to bit by bit and digest it. I will listen to it over and over again as well. It is a treasure.

Any additional comments?

This is true yoga teachings.
This is a rare find.
I feel blessed to have found it.

A concise summary of how to live a blissful and truly fulfilled life...

After reading this book, I decided to purchase several copies to give as a gift to all of my friends for Christmas. This is a very well written book - simple, concise with so much depth and humility from the author. It uses yoga and breathing as a tool to achieve a happy, healthy and fulfilled life that not only benefit yourself but everyone around you, and eventually the world. I've been practicing yoga for a little over a year, read several books on yoga including the classics, and I place this book in my top five favorites. I believe that this book given the chance can deeply touch the lives of many and encourage a spiritually based wellness lifestyle that can help change the world.

This a book to listen to over and over

If you could sum up A Life Worth Breathing in three words, what would they be?

Whenever you need to focus your meaning in life, this book will direct to in the right direction! As a Yoga teacher, I constantly remind my students to Breath and take deeper and longer breaths.

This book in audio is relaxing to listen to, and the message is true.

Thank you for coming into my life!!

What did you like best about this story?

The knowledge and exercises.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

One that I want to listen to over and over again to absorb the knowledge.

Inspiring!

Would you consider the audio edition of A Life Worth Breathing to be better than the print version?

I would highly recommend listening to Strom's reading of his book, 'A life worth breathing' if you're performing yoga for the mental and spiritual benefits as well as physical. This book helped me connect with the sense of purpose that focusing on the now during yoga, as well as life, provided me. It's a quick listen, I got through it in a week, listening about an hour a day on my headphones while I was getting other things done.

As I am new to this discipline...

...I've known of Yoga for years. However, I wasn't sure if it could fit within my "Christian" belief system. I took a chance on "Max Storm" and in my humble opinion I chose well.

His presentation seems so authentic and attentive. This was one of the most enjoyable books that I have had the pleasure to listen to.

So, I bought its hard and softcover companions because I loved it so much...like to highlight in the softcovers and keep the hardcovers clean. Only certain books get that distinction within my personal little library.

If you're on the fence about the topic of Yoga particularly if you're of the Christian persuasion - give this book a try. I would be very surprised if you could not, at the very least, glean a bit of encouragement from its content. Happy listening/reading to you. :-)

Loved it. Max is a very articulate and thoughtful speaker, with a naturally calming and soothing voice. He offered many thought-provoking insights in this book, and I look forward to adopting some of his approaches in my day-to-day life. Again, if you're seeking enlightenment, wisdom, and happiness in an enriched life, then this is well worth a buy.

Beautiful

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand the underlying principles of yoga - but as well as the value of the content in its own right, I would thoroughly recommend the experience of actually listening rather than reading. I couldn't wait to get back to it at every opportunity.

What did you like best about this story?

The chapter on kindness is particularly inspiring, and the entire book is laced with compassionate and gentle wisdom.

What about Max Strom’s performance did you like?

Max Strom reads his own work well, with a wonderfully calming and soothing voice that never once becomes irritating. Listening to this book is like spending time with a very loving and reassuring friend.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I don't think this book could be made into a film.

loved this book and the narration so much. simple translations of this oceanic practice so that you can embrace Yoga beyond the corners of a mat. the breathing practices and exercises and everyday suggestions are immense. one of the best books I have ever read.

I had one membership credit left and I used it for this amazing book. It was a gamble because I knew nothing about the author or his work, but I think I will be rereading this one for a long while to come.

On the face of it, an advertisement for starting a Yoga practice, however at a deeper level, the wise teachings of a deeply spiritual man.
