Joshua Philip –
Thank you for opening my eyes to the power of breathing with your work, Let Every Breath. After reading your book my only regret in life was that I did not find it sooner. I’ve been living systema for the past five months. It changed my views on life and has given me clarity and purpose.
JD Hixson, Master of Music, Doctor of Musical Arts, The Juilliard School –
As a performing artist, runner and coach of both, I am profoundly aware of the relationship of mind and body – when it comes to fine tuning this integration, Systema Breathwork is invaluable in the way it teaches us through direct experience that less tension is truly more power!

Thank you all for everything you have done and sharing your knowledge with the world. Your teaching and principles have been live saving. The breathing helped me out during the COVID, as I had received the COIVD shot and experienced a lot of internal bleeding. If it was not for the breathwork I would not have been able to move around. I was clean out horse pen one morning, and told my wife I need to go inside as I could not finish, I had no color to my skin. My wife got me to go to hospital and discovered my hemoglobin had went from 15.6 down to 5.4 and still had oxygen level around 99 to 100. They had to double check the blood work because they were sure the first sample was wrong, as the doctors were not sure how I was still able to move around. It took four bag of blood and not sure how many IV bags to return me to stable number of 8 for a five days. Since then, I have fully recovered and returned back to normal activities. Again thank you so very much.
