"Whether or not you are a person who already practices breathwork, or whether or not you're somebody who simply breathes to stay alive, by the end of today's discussion you're going to understand a tremendous amount about how the breathing system works and how you can leverage that breathing system toward particular goals in your life."
"Dr. Feldman shares with us his own particular breathing protocols that he uses, and he suggests different avenues for exploring respiration in ways that can allow you, for instance, to be more focused for work, to disengage from work and high stress endeavors to calm down quickly. And indeed, he explains not only how to do that, but all the underlying science in ways that will allow you to customize your own protocols for your needs."

Dr. Jack Feldman
From the show notes:
Dr. Huberman and Dr. Feldman discuss specific breathing protocols such as box-breathing, cyclic hyperventilation (similar to Wim Hof breathing), nasal versus mouth breathing, unilateral breathing, and how these each affect the brain and body.
This conversation serves as a sort of “masterclass” on the science of breathing and breathing-related tools for health and performance.
