New 7-Week Live Video Course Starts
Wednesday, July 10, 2024

Melt away stress, elevate your physical and mental health, and forge a deep connection with your eternal self through a blend of evidence-based breathing techniques and ancient Vedic breathing practices, setting you on a path to holistic wellbeing and spiritual awakening.


To attain the highest level of breathing and open the door to happiness, higher states of consciousness, and emotional freedom, we must train ourselves to breathe correctly.

Studies show that almost all of us are dysfunctional breathers, and link poor breathing to pain, indigestion, depression, compromised immunity, cancer, poor sleep, and much more.

In fact, it’s been shown that as many as 91% of athletes don’t have a correctly functioning diaphragm. If athletes aren’t breathing correctly, what does that mean for the rest of us?

Since infancy, each and every stress we’ve endured has changed the way we breathe and made our breathing less optimal. We then quickly adapt to each stress-induced breathing pattern, which becomes our new dysfunctional norm.

The good news is that you can retrain your breathing patterns using proper breathing mechanics and ancient Vedic practices.

Your diaphragm is your body’s primary self-awareness tool, facilitating your ability to regulate your emotions via your higher brain centers rather than your more primitive fight-or-flight and reward pathways, which get triggered by ordinary stressful events and cause less optimal breathing.

Join us for an exciting new 7-week course with John Douillard, DC, recognized leader in the fields of natural health and Ayurveda and respected Shift faculty, where you’ll...

... discover how to harness the power of Vedic Breathing as medicine, guided by techniques that blend ancient wisdom with modern science to transform your whole body health and wellbeing.

John will walk you through a self-assessment at the start of the course to test and record your health and breathing status, measuring whether you’re a shallow breather or a narrow breather, and discovering how long you can comfortably hold your breath.

You’ll also make note of your resting breath rate and your basic physical and mental health status.

Once you determine your breathing style, Dr. John will help you use your breath and senses to enhance your self awareness with Pratyahara and foundational breathing techniques such as Flossing the Diaphragm to address the weak links in your breathing and diaphragmatic function.

John will take you through Vedic Breathing step by step so you can harness its medicinal benefits for yourself.

You’ll also explore advanced techniques like Dhanur Veda and emotional freedom breathing. Dhanur Veda, the science of a warrior’s calm, will teach you how to stay composed and centered even in the heat of stress, enhancing your emotional resilience.

Emotional freedom breathing techniques will help you balance the ratios of oxygen and carbon dioxide in your body, reducing anxiety and depression while boosting nitric oxide levels to expand your sense of joy and wellbeing.

These practices will train you to breathe as does a baby or a dolphin, promoting a calm and balanced nervous system that supports long-term mental and emotional health because you’ll be breathing correctly with long, deep breaths from your belly.

Additionally, you’ll learn specific breathing exercises to help you experience “The Zone” everyday. This will aid you in maintaining optimal breathing patterns even when under physical stress, reducing wear and tear on your body.

You’ll receive Pranayama techniques to alleviate pain in areas like your low back, shoulders, and neck by harmonizing your sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.

These techniques can amplify your body’s healing responses and promote long-term physical comfort and flexibility.

Experience maximal inspiratory breathing techniques to heal digestive issues such as heartburn and indigestion and learn how to release adhesions between your stomach and diaphragm, improve blood sugar and metabolic health, and boost your overall digestive function.

Practice pre-sleep breathing techniques to improve the quality of your sleep and learn self-healing breathing and mantra meditation practices to deepen your connection with your higher self, enhancing and expanding your spiritual wellbeing.

Through these many potent breathing practices, you’ll achieve a profound transformation in your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. And this knowledge won’t just live in your head.

You’ll learn to integrate these breathing practices into your daily life especially during physical activities like walking, hiking, or exercising so you can maintain optimal breathing patterns even under physical, mental, or emotional stress.

At the end of the course, you’ll complete a post-course breathing assessment, which will demonstrate the many benefits of your new breathing abilities and how much you’ve improved your health in just seven weeks!


During this health-enhancing course, you’ll:

  • Learn how to train your diaphragm for optimal breathing, helping you reduce stress and improve your overall health
  • Discover Dhanur Veda and emotional freedom breathing techniques to reduce anxiety and depression, enhancing your emotional wellbeing
  • Master nose-breathing skills to replicate “The Zone” that you experience during exercise, boosting your performance and reducing stress in your everyday life
  • Experience pranayama techniques to alleviate pain, promoting long-term physical comfort and flexibility
  • Acquire maximal inspiratory breathing techniques to heal digestive issues, improving your gut health and overall digestion
  • Train yourself to breathe through your nose while you sleep, ensuring deeper, more restorative rest
  • Practice self-healing breathing and mantra meditation, fostering a deeper connection with your eternal self
  • Gain an understanding of nostril dominance and breath coordination, enhancing your daily self-awareness and calmness
  • And much more...

You can enhance your longevity and age gracefully. Fortunately, all you need to achieve this is to learn how to breathe correctly and then practice your new breathing skills so that optimal breathing becomes your norm.

From improving digestion and deepening your breath to enhancing your sleep quality and alleviating chronic pain, you’ll learn to address a wide range of health challenges using nothing more than your breath.

Through embracing Vedic principles of conscious longevity, you’ll not only strengthen your immune system and increase your capacity for joy, but also develop a holistic approach to health that keeps you calm and grounded, no matter what life throws at you.

By the end of this course, you’ll have a plethora of tools to harness the power of your breath, reduce stress, enhance your health, and connect deeply with your eternal self using potent Vedic breathing practices and the insights of modern science.

What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks

In this 7-week transformational course, Dr. John will guide you through the fundamental skills and competencies you’ll need to successfully reduce stress, improve physical and mental health, and deepen your connection with your eternal nature using a blend of evidence-based methods and ancient Vedic breathing practices.

Weekly Sessions Wednesdays at 1:00pm Pacific

This course will feature LIVE teachings, interactive sessions, experiential practices, and Q&A with Dr. John. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to experience less stress, enhance your wellbeing, and make a profound connection with your soul through applying optimal breathing techniques grounded in both scientific research and ancient wisdom.

Module 1: Train Your Diaphragm for Optimal Breathing to Enhance Self-Awareness (July 10)


From an early age, every stress, threat, or worry we experience changes how we breathe. Then we quickly adapt to that dysfunctional breathing pattern. In time, our rib cages literally become cages, more shallow and narrow.

By the age of 5½, most children have learned to suck in their tummies. This can be due to stress, trauma, difficulty making friends, worry, peer pressure, testing at school, or just feeling they don’t fit in.

The Buddha belly of their toddlerhood is replaced by a flat-bellied fight-or-flight breathing pattern that puts them on guard, ready for the next “bear” to chase them up a tree.

You'll test and record your health and breathing status, measuring whether you’re a shallow breather or a narrow breather, and discovering how long you can comfortably hold your breath. Note your resting breath rate and basic physical and mental health status. (In the final week of the course, you’ll re-access your breathing and health metrics to document your success.)

Once you determine your breathing style, Dr. John will teach you specific breathing techniques to address the weak links in your breathing and diaphragmatic function. Considering that 91% of athletes do not have a correctly functioning diaphragm, this initial training is a critical first step for all of us.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Be introduced to Vedic Breathing as medicine
  • Learn how to access your breathing and health status
  • Experience Flossing the Diaphragm breathing training
  • Use your breath and senses to enhance self awareness with Pratyahara
  • Explore the subtle science of nostril dominance and how to coordinate your breath with action
  • Discover the power of the exhale and the subtle science of slow, deep, and long breathing
  • Begin your Daily Breath Self-Awareness Training while in bed each morning and evening, practice breathing exercises to build upon each week

Module 2: Navigate Life’s Storms and Reduce Stress, Anxiety & Depression Using Optimal Breathing Patterns (July 17)


Learn how worry, anxiety, and the declining ability to handle stress are caused by dysfunctional breathing. One study showed that 75% of people who breathe inefficiently experience anxiety and panic disorders.

Anxiety is a nervous system on overdrive. It forces us to worry about future events and stress about past events. When you have anxiety, your cells respond to life as an emergency increasing your risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, and numerous degenerative health concerns.

The Vedic science designed to turn off the anxiety alarms is called Dhanur Veda the science of a warrior’s ability to stay calm in the heat of battle. These breathing techniques are well studied and documented.

They change the body’s biochemistry to support joy, happiness, and composure, even while under stress. You’ll relearn how to lengthen, deepen, widen, and slow your breath, and breathe like a baby or a dolphin, literally breathing away your anxiety and depression.

This ancient wisdom and these modern science-based tools will train you to expand your inner calm. Much like a hurricane, the bigger the eye of the storm, the more powerful the winds and the more productive you can be.

Inside of all of us is a state of inner calm and joy and nothing has the power to take that away from you. The good news is that breathing gives you access to it.

Discover if you are an overbreather and learn breathing techniques to balance the ratios of oxygen and carbon dioxide in both your blood and your body.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Discover the dangers of overbreathing and learn how to breathe like a baby, triggering a parasympathetic and vagal response with each breath
  • Discern how to improve your CO2 tolerance the chemistry of calm with breath lengthening training
  • Experience emotional freedom breathing techniques that boost nitric oxide by 15x while expanding joy
  • Learn how to Breathe Away the Butterflies with a simple on-demand technique you can do anywhere
  • Take action from your breath using Dhanur Veda (The Veda of the Bow) Training
  • Gain an understanding of tissue hypoxia and how it opens the door for mutagenic stem cells, DNA damage, degeneration, stress, cognitive dysfunction, and mood imbalances

Module 3: Take Your Breathing Practice Off the Mat & Into Your Daily Life to Stay in “The Zone” (July 24)


It’s one thing to breathe properly during yoga or a structured breathing session, but the key is to take your new breathing practice off the mat and into your daily life.

The first step is to use movement, like a walk, hike, jog, or bike ride, as a model for maintaining an optimal breathing pattern while under physical stress. Studies show that moderate exercise just three times a week for 45 minutes can double the length of your telomeres.

Telomeres are the protective caps on your DNA. Nobel Prize science discovered that the more stressed you are, the shorter the telomeres become. Shorter telomeres lead to a shorter health span and life span.

Proper breathing during exercise can increase performance while dramatically lowering degenerative stress, wear, and tear.

Studies detailed in Dr. John’s book, Body, Mind and Sport, show that nasal breathing led to major changes in brain waves turning them from stressed beta brain waves into meditative alpha waves during vigorous exercise.

If your nervous system can stay calm during exercise, imagine handling everyday mental and emotional stress in the same way functioning from a calm center and staying away from destructive forces in your life.

Learn how to put the skills of Dhanur Veda, or effortless action, into practice and replicate “The Zone” or “runner’s high” in every workout where the hard becomes easy, and yes, even blissful.

By taking the work out of the workout, you’ll remove the wear, tear, and injury linked to many exercise programs. The exercises you’ll learn in this module can be done while walking, hiking, and even during yoga.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Learn nose-breathing skills to replicate “The Zone” or effortless exercise
  • Explore the science of Dhanur Veda, the veda of effortless action, and use it to remain calm under stress
  • Learn yoga and nose-breathing techniques for before and after each workout
  • Experience a walking and breathing exercise to create better oxygen and breathing efficiency
  • Learn a post-exercise breathing meditation

Module 4: Breathe Pain Away With Pranayama (July 31)


The American Lung Association says that at about age 35, normal lung function begins to decline. The lungs and rib cage work like a balloon, always trying to exhale or squeeze the air out.

Without breathing exercises to strengthen the diaphragm and create a flexible rib cage, breathing will become shallow, rigid, and tight, sending a fight-or-flight emergency message into your cells 26,000 times a day.

This breathing pattern affects all systems of the body and most directly alters your movement, posture, and biomechanical function.

For pain-free longevity, health, and happiness, learn how to voluntarily control the “involuntary” autonomic nervous system with pranayama techniques proven to harmonize the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.

Learn evidence-based breathing techniques to reduce the pain response. Apply the horizontal and vertical breathing techniques you learned in earlier modules to treating pain in your lower back, shoulders, and neck, and alleviate joint pain in your arms and legs.

These techniques can turn off the stress response and turn up the regenerative vagal response directed to the painful areas of your body, amplifying self-awareness and allowing your body’s healing system to create appropriate healing responses.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Gain an understanding of how to harmonize the left and right hemispheres of your brain to dial down the pain response
  • Coordinate breath, awareness, silence, and intention for optimal self healing
  • Discover how to strengthen your pelvic diaphragm for lower back, lower extremity, and pelvic pain
  • Experience breathing techniques and stretching postures for neck, shoulder, low back, pelvic, hip, and lower extremity pain
  • Learn the One-Minute Meditation with self-awareness healing

Module 5: Learn Maximal Inspiratory Breathing Techniques to Heal Your Digestive System (August 7)


In Ayurveda, it’s said that 85% of all diseases stem from digestive issues, and the most common cause of poor digestion is called Udvarta, which means upward moving digestion.

Over time, emotional stress, worry, and trauma can cause breathing to become shallow, the diaphragm to become weak, and the stomach, liver, and gallbladder be pulled up against the diaphragm.

This upward-moving digestion, called gastroparesis in Western medicine, can cause constipation, loose stools, heartburn, GERD, burping, gas, bloating, food intolerances, and more. Learn maximal inspiratory breathing techniques that have been shown to reverse heartburn and indigestion.

When the stomach moves in an upward direction, it creates upward pressure on the diaphragm which affects how you breathe, digest, handle stress, sleep, and much more.

Learn breathing practices for different digestive imbalances, exercises, and yoga postures combined with breath work to strengthen, open, relax, and allow your digestion to heal and function optimally.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Learn stomach-pulling techniques to release adhesions between your stomach and diaphragm
  • Learn studied breathing techniques to improve blood sugar and metabolic health
  • Experience self-visceral massage techniques to release abdominal stress and adhesions caused by poor breathing habits
  • Discover breathing techniques that can reverse heartburn, GERD, reflux, and more
  • Learn how to optimize nostril dominance and employ vertical and horizontal breathing with asana for digestion

Module 6: Breathe Through Your Nose for the Best Sleep of Your Life (August 14)


Perhaps the greatest predictor of poor sleep is how you breathe.

Ancient Asian and other cultures trained their children to sleep with their mouths closed. If they made noise during the night, the children were put on their side with a tucked chin to retrain them to breathe through their noses at night.

Learn pre-sleep meditation and breathing techniques to facilitate a quicker entry into and a longer duration of deep sleep.

Prior to bed, practice breathing techniques that boost nitric oxide, the antiviral gas produced in the paranasal sinuses that evolved to scrub the lungs from exposure to immune-compromising bacteria and viruses during the day.

Also learn more about the subtle science of nasal dominance for sleep and the best side to sleep on for enhanced brain glymphatic drainage of toxins.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Train yourself to breathe through your nose while you sleep
  • Perform a bedtime meditation routine for quick access to deep sleep
  • Learn a wake-up meditation routine to optimize the daytime energy production needed for deep sleep
  • Initiate sleep with proper nostril dominance
  • Discover the best sleep direction for your type, and learn Ayurvedic techniques for the best sleep of your life

Module 7: Connect to Your Eternal Self Through Your Breath (August 21)


Take the post-course breathing assessment to document the benefits of your new breathing abilities.

Continue to combine some of the breathing practices you’ve learned with a meditation and mantra practice from the Vedic texts to facilitate self healing and distance healing.

Learn the science of your body’s ultra-weak photon emissions or biophotons released from your DNA that can carry information and intention.

Breathing expands our knowing that we are part of something greater than just ourselves. Few of us have an active relationship with Spirit and a knowledge of how inseparable we are from those around us.

With continued practice of these breathing techniques, not only will you ensure greater health and longevity, but also develop a growing realization of your eternal self while steadily thinning the veil between the physical and spiritual, giving you a glimpse of your full and unlimited potential.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Complete your self evaluation and monitor your success
  • Learn self-healing breathing and mantra meditation
  • Discover distance-healing breathing
  • Gain an understanding of the power of slow, gentle, proper breathing


The Medicine of Vedic Breath Bonus Offering

In addition to John’s transformative 7-week online course, you’ll receive this special bonus offering to complement the course and take your understanding and practice to an even deeper level.

Ayurvedic Quantum Healing
Video Session From the Illuminated Herbalism Summit

Dr. John Douillard introduces the Vedic concept of Pragya Paradh, the cause of disease when we become separated from consciousness. Many of our biophoton emissions are weakened from stress and DNA damage, but quantum healing can harness the body’s ultra-weak photon emissions from our DNA. Using yoga, pranayama, and meditation, studies show that the photon emissions can become coherent and used by the body to carry information, intention, and healing. Learn how Pragya Paradh is the cause of all disease, how your diaphragm is the muscle of immortality and quantum healing, how to align your biological clock with nature’s circadian rhythms, and much more.
