During our round-the-world flight with Solar Impulse, on one of our extended stopovers the energy in the team was slipping into a negative mode. I called Patrizia, one of the Respira instructors, and thanks to a few breathing sessions, we found the impulse we needed to recenter and were able to continue our adventure.”

 Anne-Christine Perren – Solar Impulse, Executive Assistant to the CEO


It was an honor for me to participate in the project of making the Breathe video with Fabio Andrico. I truly believe that these breathing exercises can bring positive changes in everyone’s life and that Respira can help us face challenges in a calmer, more peaceful way. It’s a simple practice that anyone can do, with immediate results. Thank you for making this possible and accessible to all.”

Breathe As You Are

Awesome! I bought this book some months ago. I love it! It is well structured, the explanation is easy, the drawings and photos are nice and give a precise idea how to train various phases of breathing (abdominal, intercostal, thoracic, clavicular, dorsal) with or without cushions, yoga props etc! It helps me to understand how I can breathe completely, fluidly, without tension, obstacles, just as children do)) I am satisfied with this purchase!
