Yoga teacher and journey guide Laurie Ellis-Young learned early on that the quality of breath directly impacts the quality of life, personally and professionally. By leading adventure treks in the Himalayas and Andes for over a decade, she experienced the absolute necessity of maximizing oxygen flow to build stamina and keep going under stress. The mountains became her teachers in how to access the life-giving power of breath—not just for extreme adventure but in transforming everyday lives for better health, greater peace, and enhanced well-being.

Since then, she and her husband, Dr. George T. Ellis, a practicing psychologist specializing in cultivating stress resiliency and healing trauma, have worked around the world teaching individuals, groups, various corporate and government organizations, and international NGOs on how everyone can tap into the extraordinary power of their ordinary breath.

As a way of honoring trees are the lungs of the planet, for over 20 years, the authors developed a reforestation project on the shores of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. Laurie's happy place is sitting up in a tree.
