Instead of just going through life with your head leading the way, breath allows you to open your emotional IQ, heart intelligence, and intuition, so you can show up better prepared for every moment in life. There are certain experiences that we cannot think our way through, we have to feel our way through them with the breath.” – Dan Brulé

Power Quotes From The Show'What we receive from breathwork depends on what we put into it. If you put passion, consciousness, and relaxation into the breath, miracles will happen.' - @danbrule Click To Tweet
“Breath mastery is learning how to use the breath as a tool, as a force, and as a bridge for health, for growth, and for change. Once you discover the power of breathwork, it's almost like you've found out that you have an arm growing out of your back and now you realize it's there and all the amazing things you can do with it. We've tapped into the power of breath enough to survive but we haven't entered a process of higher consciousness with it.” – Dan Brulé
Coming Back To Our True Selves
“The breath is a way to come back to who we really are but people don't use their breath enough or correctly. They kind of practice it through the exercises they learned in a yoga book but they don't integrate it into their life as a strategy like they do with brushing their teeth, taking a shower, or eating. Breathwork should be on the level of those activities that need to be done consciously every day but people don't see its potential yet.” – Dan Brulé
Breathing In Energy
“When we inhale, we're charging ourselves with energy. Take the time to actually breathe in and consciously focus on it. You're not breathing in air, you're breathing in energy. So, when you let it go of it in the exhale, you can observe how your body is responding, focus on the strongest physical feelings, and breathe into those body parts that need energy and your highest level of attention.” – Dan Brulé
Expressing Ourselves Through The Breath
“Through the breath, we make sure that what's coming from us is coming from who we really are. Breathing gives us a chance to very consciously and deliberately connect to our inner intelligence, begin to trust it, and allow it to express through us.” – Dan Brulé
