Abstract: (Show)
Psychology is originally and essentially concerned with the breath, energy, consciousness, soul or spirit of life that leaves a person at death and continues in some other form. The aim of this article is to explicate a psychology of various methods of breathing for life, health, exercise and sport. Given the abundant evidence for their value and power in various forms and contexts, breathing skills may be regarded as the original method of survival, energy control, illness prevention, health promotion and improving quality of living.
