Soon after I discovered Systema on YouTube and after seeing Vladimir and Mikhail I decided to download the book - Let Every Breath, which I must say is one of the. by Vladimir Vasiliev with Scott Meredith, Ph.D. based on the teachings of Mikhail Ryabko. This e-book is available in both EPUB and MOBI file formats. Please. by Vladimir Vasiliev with Scott Meredith Let every breath praise the Lord. The exercises, ideas, and suggestions in this book are not intended as a substitute.
I was able to collect my horse, run him through some drills, re mount him and set things right between us. Remarkable to fall at galloping speed and not break any bones at my age. I want your material, I regularly use the breathing to rid my self of tension. Today I received the book.
Book is a wonderful. I am now at the first chapter and in my mind there still is this: " Those among us who aren't doctors or professional healers need to protect the health of our families and of ourselves. We need a simple source of power to replenish our bodies minds and spirits Miagi say return unto the basic of life "no breath no life" Systema is new art in terms of the Westerners and the myriad of things out there on this martial skill is over whelming. These DVD's are not a watch once and move on they are in effect a constant reference book for learning.
For those who have an internal locus of control as opposed to an external will find great satisfaction in the information contained here. If we just breath the rest will follow but if we don't breath we fail. In the West the simple function of breathing is little understood because of the noise generated in the mind but becoming breath conscious one is on the way to a better life style even if one is not ever attacked or mugged!
Enjoy Ross Stockwell Australia It is truly the most unique System I have ever seen, and believe me I've seen or tried just about every style commonly known and not commonly known. I have been training for 16 years and have never seen such "effortlessness" as I have seen with these instructors. Breathing is something that even blackbelts do not seem to know these days. I am a 35 year martial artist.
I have practiced several breathing and meditation regimens. Your breathing techniques have proven to be extremely simple and have helped me heal areas that I thought were never goingto get better. Thank you so much for helping me. I have learned to breathe to give awareness to my body and I have also learned to pray to give awareness to my soul.
Thank you so much for your exceptionally effective training. Recently I finished reading your "Let Every Breath" book and immediately wanted to thank you.

As a student of martial training for over 20 years, I was finding too much in the martial community that was more ego related than actual practical application.
As I see more and more of Systema, I feel this was what I have been looking for. Two weeks ago I got a copy of "Let every breath". But I decided to give it a try and it works very well. The benefit that I liked most, is that I can achieve a state of calmness and clearheadedness.
It feels a little strange, letting the breath do the work e. It is much easier and your not exhausted.
The many truths that I have stumbled upon in doing this have been mind staggering, and the joy that this has brought to me is wonderful. There are not any words in the English language that are able to describe my thanks to you for sharing this beautiful gift of Systema with the world.
Please know that your wonderful sacrifices of time, sweat and tears do not go unnoticed. Eric Peltz Systema is more than just martial art, it is a way of life. I firmly believe my Systema training and breathing was a major contributor to my safe landing. My body knew automatically to be relaxed and roll when I hit the ground. Many of the drills Vladimir and Konstantin have shown me, including falls down the hill at last years summer camp were very benificial.
It is truely remarkable what the body is capable of when you train it to relax in any difficult situation. Thank you Vladimir, Systema Instructors, and training partners for the gift of Systema. Matthew Teevens Calgary, Canada I downloadd the book and several videos all at once just after doing many hours of research into a program that will make me stronger and more agile, Systema and "Let Every Breath" have already begun to change my life in ways unimaginable just a couple of months ago.
I have read the book and have come out the other side according to my girlfriend, "more confident, and sweeter just from reading that book, I have noticed an incredible change in you I will reread the book and reread the book until the cover falls off, and I have to download another copy straight from the author himself Thank you Vladimir, Valerie, Mikhail, and all of you who are sharing this life changing system..

“Let Every Breath…” Excerpts From the Book
I used the principles in this book and Russian Breathing for injuries when I was almost paralysed after receiving severe trauma to the vertabrae between C3 and C4 in my neck, the doctor remarked that many persons would have lost the use of both arms, and that I would have permanent nerve damage to certain areas in my arms. With continued breath work all derived from this book and the Russian Health System of Systema, I have been able to make a full recovery from dianosed "Central Cord Syndrome" spinal injury , and reduce the nerve damage to a largely unnoticable sensation continuing work in progress.
The doctor also showed surprise at the apparent speed at which I was able to recover and regain strength and use of my arms and full body movement. It is a very great acheivement when someone creates something that is wholly positive in its message and practice, it can honestly be called a true gift to humanity and the world.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough, give it to anyone you care about. Where do you start with a Masterpiece?
Let Every Breath
Covering the most essential and fundamental principle in the four pillars principles of systema practice with step by step instruction all the way. Now just going for a walk is no excuse not to train This book takes you to the very essence of Systema with in-depth interviews and opinions of the Masters Mikhail Ryabko, Vladimir Vasiliev and top systema Teacher Kwan Lee giving personal accounts of initiation and personal journeys in this art where the first and last Battle is with yourself. Vladimir Vasiliev and Scott Meredith take you on a path of discovery as you learn in an easy to follow Progressive sequence of Breathing exercises with professional illustrations that will transform your health and well being from whatever the age and condition you begin at.
My oldest student is sixty three and has asthma and he noticed a great difference straight away in his breathing and well being, other students were amazed at how they could do strenuous exercises yet afterwards not feel out of breath or even fatigued. I usually do a three mile walk to Teach my class now this is part of my own training as merely walking has taken on a new meaning after reading and studying this Book.
Your training library is not complete without this book order it now for what awaits you is a clear insight into the vast depths of the Russian Martial Art Tradition that is Systema. Trevor Robinson I look forward to using the principles and exercises in your book to my benefit. Teaching someone how to live a healthy, productive life is a gift you hope everyone will use. It is a noble endeavor. I thank you again for Let Every Breath Ernest Emerson I bought this book at our school after class on Saturday.
I knew the book would be helpful to my training, but I honestly did not even believe reading the book would make such a difference! But preconceptions do not matter; this book will help you even if you don't expect it to. One particular way it helped me is with the "no breathing" confidence exercises we do in Systema class.
So I'd always struggle to do another 10 without breathing. And because I was "out of breath," not breathing while exerting myself further caused me to panic, even though I knew that panicking was only using up oxygen faster. My instructor and fellow students offered much advice: don't freak out, think of something else, look around the room, try not to dwell on lack of air. But it always ended up the same, I'd do two or three without breath, panic, and lay there panting while the rest of the class finished the set.
It was only after reading Let Every Breath that I realized why this was happening and was able to correct my breathing so that I was not so winded. Of course, I still need lots of practice, particular with the leg lifts which are the hardest "no-breath" exercises for me. Sometimes I forget what was so crystal-clear immediately after finishing the book. But if I remember the principles described in Let Every Breath, I can get to 5 and occassionally or 7 or 10 without breath, which is a pretty dramatic improvement from just 2 or 3.
As suggested, it's very helpful to reach what I think is my maximum and try for just one more; in this way, my confidence improves gradually. I'm describing the "no-breath" exercises because they are the biggest challenge for me. Two things in particular helped me approach these in a different way.
Instead of matching my breathing to movement, I tried it the other way around. And that is how I became aware of movement that extended beyond my breathing. The book describes a natural pause between inhale and exhale. But with the exertion of movement, my pause was a bit longer than natural. Even though I began my inhale or exhale before the movement, as described, I was still halting it between inhale and exhale so that my movement could "catch up" with my breath.
Again, these were very tiny pauses, barely noticeable, but they do add up! And that is why I was so often "out of breath" at the end of the sets.
By shifting my focus to breathing, movement connects to breathing naturally, rather than artificially, and I'm less likely to force myself to move when there is no breath to support it. If you are wondering why is so important to me, it's because I do consider it potentially life-saving knowledge.
Recently I was watching a documentary program about accidents at sea and how people survive them. It's an extremely difficult survival situation because of hypothermia, which causes people to make irrational decisions and even worse, to lose the will to live. At the end of the program, they interviewed a survival expert who trained people to prepare for disasters at sea.
He was asked, "What can an average person do to increase their chances of survival when lost at sea? Can you swim? How long can you hold your breath? These things will give you the confidence to know that you can make it through extreme circumstances.
But now, I know that I can hold my breathe at least for a little while without panicking, it will certainly increase my chances of surviving such a situation. Another paragraph from the book which helped me quite a bit was the idea of breathing "through" the entire body during difficult conditioning exercises. I knew that it is helpful to visualize "breathing in" through the muscles that are under exertion, but the breath penetrates the entire body. Not just symbolically, it's a biological fact that every cell needs oxygen.
If the muscles are stiff, tight, sore, tense, or otherwise restricted, it's harder to process the oxygen-rich blood and also to eliminate metabolic wastes. This is a difficult cycle; the tight muscles that would benefit most from increased blood flow actually get the least of it. Lack of oxygen and accumulation of wastes perpetuate and spread the problem to surrounding areas, and this can cause muscular pain as severe as joint and bone pain, and a lack of mobility so dramatic, many people resort to surgery.
But I have to confess, I wasn't entirely convinced that visualizing breathing through the entire body would actually bring increased oxygen to restricted areas. But it does seem to help, I'm not sure how or why, but I definitely feel less restriction to those areas when I envision breathing "through" the entire body.
In fact, sometimes I'm not aware of the restriction until I visualize the breathing permeating my entire body. One thing I'd like to work on further is the concept of independence of breath, because I think that I have too closely tied pain management or exertion with exhaling.
Focussing on the exhale is a little bit easier and I think most beginners are taught to start with that. But now that I've been training for a few years, I think it would be beneficial to look more closely at my breathing and its correlation to certain activities in training like accepting strikes, yielding to joint locks, falls and rolls, and even just exertion.
Actually, there are many more ideas to ponder in Let Every Breath, and I've found it to be an inspiration.
In my day-to-day life, I can gauge the effectiveness of my breathing by my commute to work each weekday morning. When I get out of the subway, I'm about as far underground as anyone can be in Manhattan, and there are two platforms above me. So I have to climb two flights of stairs and ascend a very steep ramp to get out to the street.
If I'm stuck in a big crowd, this can be a slow process. And it actually makes me a bit sad to see people who look young and fit heaving themselves up the stairs as if it's taking every last bit of energy to do so. Usually I take the stairs quickly, but if I'm sleepy or carrying heavy bags, it's always harder than if I'm well-rested and empty-handed. If I'm out of breath when I reach the street, then I know I have forgotten some of those basic principles!
This book is a treasure. You don't have to be a martial artist or an athlete to benefit from reading it. If you breathe, it will help you! The principles of Russian breathing are so clearly described, with illustrations, exercises, and ideas to consider at every moment of the day. Just for starters: how often do you hold your breath? Holding the breath doesn't necessarily mean you are puffed up and blue in the face. As the author explains, pay close attention to your breathing as you perform simple tasks: lift a heavy package, thread a needle, catch a ball.
Is your breathing truly continous? It's such a simple idea, and one that we take for granted: of course we don't stop our breathing, or else we'd die. Even though I have been training in Russian Martial Art, after reading Let Every Breath, I realized that I stop my breathing at certain times, especially when I'm suprised: when the train lurches suddenly, when I accidentally drop something I'm carrying, or stumble, or knock something off my desk. These small pauses, barely noticeable until I thought to check for them, might seem inconsequential, but breath is life, and when it's halted by fear or surprise or tension, it is contrary to our very survival, and it disconnects us from the natural harmony of the force of life.
It's subtle, but so important, if you think of how long most people can go without breathing, 10 or 20 seconds, perhaps a bit more, then it becomes apparent why even the smallest change in breathing will affect the whole body, and overall quality of life. Quote: "Everyday that you live without proper breathing is another little step of submitting to stress and deterioration of your health. It is not a book to change your lifestyle, get you to eat specific foods, follow any sort of schedule, or do anything by rote.
The real gem of the book is simply the way it changes our perception of our own breathing, that which connects us to the greater universe around us. We look at a fish out of water, flopping around, and we know it is doomed. But somehow, we consider ourselves higher than those fish, as if they are imprisoned by their inability to survive without water.
We even have an expression for those who are ill at ease: "like a fish out of water. Fish need water, we need air, no creature can survive without the life-giving force of the universe, and the best way to appreciate any gift is to accept it with humble gratitude, and use it wisely and well. Quote: "You breathe in when you're born and out when you die; in between is your life. It is truly a gift to the Systema community and to the world beyond.
Even though I have not yet met Vladimir or Mikhail personally, I have still been sharpened by their teachings via video and reading materials. I am continually amazed as the concepts of this system reveal to me just how proud and weak I really am. The beauty of Systema though is that this continual realization is not an end, but a beginning. Because of this, I take great joy in facing the future, knowing that with the honesty, help and love of great friends like Vladimir and Mikhail, I can continue to be sharpened into a useful tool that will be of service to my God, my family, and my country.
Godspeed, Eric Peltz "Let Every Breath" is without a doubt a book which will change the lives of all who read it and practice its teachings.

I've downloadd many video's and now this wonderful book. I could never put my entire heart and soul into my previous studies due to the philosophies and mysticism involved. Thank you Vladamir for bringing this amazing and exciting system founded in the Christian faith to the western world. This book is a monumental achievement.
The story skips forward to the future and Hope fills in the missing parts. They are adults, just, so we are clear. With that being said, Hope flashes us forward into the future and explains what her life turned out like after that weekend.
The end of the weekend was a bit tough to read and then the following chapters were also tough to read. Remember how I told you I was mad from the start of the book?
Well, the ending made me mad as well. At the beginning he told us that it was a story he read from a mailbox, he worked hard to find the original author to beg them to let him use their story. All his work paid off, and they let him use their story as long as they got to read it and approve it for publishing with the identities remaining as anonymous as possible as to not reopen old wounds or cause new wounds from those who may not know the full story until this novel came out.
Remember how I said that annoyed me because I was hoping to read a story BY Nicholas Sparks and not just a story he heard that inspired him? Turns out the whole story was fake and it was HIS story the whole time, but he wanted to take his first attempt at placing himself inside his story like Stephen King does or Stan Lee did with their appearances in their films. I was furious.
My sister convinced me to give this novel a real chance because a successful author loved it so much that it had to be worth the read. I read the novel, the actual story was not one I was particularly fond of. Two people in unfortunate circumstances with all the odds against them. They fall in love but are forced with a huge life altering change that could negatively impact their lives forever or it could have been the best decision they ever made.
A choice was made, the usual one if you catch my drift, and then miracles happen in the end to prove that life really does work itself out.
The ending in the book makes you believe that although the problems did work themselves out in the end, they realized how much time was wasted on making the wrong choice in the first place.
Hope learns how fragile life truly is, Tru turns out to be like the greatest man alive ever. Yet he describes Tru as pretty much perfect.
Tru also went through a really bad part of his life more details added in the book of course and instead of becoming a bitter angry old man, he remained near perfect his entire life.
No matter how understanding we believe we are, pain and hardship change us in one way or another. None of that matters though because the whole story was in fact made up inside the mind of Nicholas Sparks and I just happened to pick the first book where he was attempting to insert real-life Nicholas Sparks into the fake story of Tru and Hope as part of a funny or cute link. I was mad when I started this book, grew to give it a chance by the advice of my wallet and my sister, and then even more upset at the end when I realized it was what I wanted all along.
It was my story all along, I just wanted to pretend to be like Stephen King and Stan Lee, did it work?! For those who are true fans of Nicholas Sparks, I hope you read the book and enjoyed it. The details are well-thought-out and completed, there is a beginning, a middle, and an ending. Now that I believe I have repeated myself way too many times and multiple different ways I can move on. I guess I would recommend Every Breath due to the true moral behind the story. There was also a deeper meaning inside the fake story that I caught onto as well.
Life will teach us lessons if we pay close attention, one of the hardest lessons we must learn is that with Love there must be sacrifice and pain in one way or another. Everything ends eventually even if it means you die of old age and natural causes. Since life usually works as one person dying before the other, true love can be painful when your spouse dies because you feel their loss and have to relearn how to live life without them.
The same pain can be felt when death takes a family member, especially one you are close to.But I have to confess, I wasn't entirely convinced that visualizing breathing through the entire body would actually bring increased oxygen to restricted areas. Refresh and try again. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. In particular, i have for a long time been interested in how to use attentional control to relax mind and body.
The hymns invite the Spirit of the Lord, create a feeling of reverence, unify us as members, and provide a way for us to offer praises to the Lord.
