What is Tanden breathing?

The Tanden breathing methods draw from ancient techniques handed down mainly from Asia. It is founded on the simple principle that anyone can help improve their health by learning to control their breathing. Today, people from all walks of life practice Tanden breathing. It can be used to improve your lifestyle and for meditation purposes.

Research has shown that these breathing methods have different effects on the mind and body. They have helped people control stress, improve posture, and adjust the autonomic nervous system. Even employees at major companies, such as Google and Nike, practice various Asian meditation forms. Increasingly the world is recognizing how important breathing and meditation in daily life is.
