Singing Dragon was proud to publish Restoring Prana: A Therapeutic Guide to Pranayama and Healing Through the Breath for Yoga Therapists, Yoga Teachers, and Healthcare Practitioners by Robin Rothenberg in December 2019, to critical acclaim. We are therefore delighted to announce that Svadhyaya Breath Journal: A Companion Workbook to Restoring Prana by Robin will be published in August 2020, and is now available to pre-order!
This companion workbook provides a pre-formulated breath journal, which follows the chapter chronology of the parent book, Restoring Prana, a training manual on transformative breathing presenting a new way of understanding and applying breath to a wide range of ailments. Each chapter in Restoring Prana ends with specific practices that the reader is asked to track in a breath journal – and this workbook provides a pre-formulated journal for this purpose, with the key concepts highlighted and with space for breath charts, logs and reflection.
Here, we share a free extract from the new workbook that teaches subtle breathing – how to make the breath subtle by reducing rate and volume. Robin discusses the benefits of the practice, how to incorporate it into daily life, and shares a printable subtle breathing tracking chart.
You can also watch Robin demonstrate subtle breathing in this video.

Many yoga instructors and therapists are undertrained in respiratory physiology and the impact breathing has on individuals. This reference guide for instructors and therapists will ensure that the yoga community practices breathing techniques safely and effectively.
