Breath Applications for Educators
Guest Speaker: James Nestor
Description: There is nothing more essential to our health and well-being than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat twenty-five thousand times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences. This sounds impossible, but it’s true. Snoring, sleep apnea, asthma, allergies, and even autoimmune diseases are among the most prevalent diseases in the modern world, and all of them can be either exacerbated, or sometimes caused, by poor breathing.

Thankfully, acclaimed author and journalist James Nestor has spent the last decade trying to figure out where we all went wrong and how we can fix it. In this eye-opening talk, he condenses years of on-the-ground research, found in the unlikeliest of places (think ancient burial sites, secret Soviet facilities, and New Jersey choir schools) into a cohesive strategy for how to improve our breathing, and therefore our life. Packed with groundbreaking research and titillating stories, Nestor’s talk shows us what breathing does for our physical and mental well-being, and how we can do it better.

James Nestor
Science Journalist & Author
When we consider our health and well-being, we often scrutinize the foods we eat or the amount of stress we’re under. Rarely, if ever, do we consider the ways we breathe. Yet poor breathing habits are linked to a laundry list of chronic health problems: ADHD, autoimmune diseases, gut issues, and even crooked teeth, explains acclaimed science journalist James Nestor. In his landmark book Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art, Nestor seeks out what went wrong—and how to fix it, turning conventional wisdom about our most basic biological function on its head. Brilliantly researched and utterly fascinating, Breath became an instant New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Los Angeles Times bestseller. Nestor has been invited to speak about the importance of proper breathing at Stanford Medical School, the United Nations, and Global Classroom, as well as more than 60 radio and television shows. He has written for Scientific American, The New York Times, and The Atlantic, among others.
