"This is the story of a year I spent in New York, studying with Yoga Master Alan Finger."

When Katrina Repka moved to New York, she was eager to shed her past and begin a new life, but she soon discovered that her old problems had followed her to the big city, and that instead of finding herself, she was more lost than ever. It was when she was almost ready to give up on everything that she read a magazine article on Master Yogi Alan Finger and knew that she had to meet him. It was a meeting that would change her life.

Over the next twelve months, with Alan's help, Katrina tackled and overcame many of the obstacles holding her back. Dealing with issues that every woman will relate to—criticism, emptiness, balance, family, and creativity (among others)—the twelve chapters in Breathing Space follow Katrina's ups and downs in New York. At the end of each chapter there is a simple but effective breathing exercise that will help readers eliminate harmful behavior patterns and speed their own process of personal transformation. Breathing Space is an inspiring and instructive book that offers every woman the chance to follow the author's path and become the person she truly wants and deserves to be.

Breathing Space appeals to many especially those who have taken any amount of Yoga. Her self-reflections pose questions for her readership. It is inspirational and drives us to ask, what next? Finally, it is a great read.

A really useful book on yogic breathing.At first, I did not like this book. Katrina was so self-absorbed and self-destructive (through most of the book really) - I just didn't like her very much. What I did really, really like was the end of every chapter where she and Alan went through a breathing exercise - followed by great instructions and notes from Katrina. This is a really useful book, explaining breathing techniques in an accessible way and showing how much they helped the author in her life.
