Pranayama: Extend Your Life by Extending Your Breath | Jim Kambeitz | TEDxBismarck



Eight years ago Jim Kambeitz faced a choice: have another knee surgery or do yoga to heal and realign his joints properly. He had lost his ability to walk, so he knew that if he was to heal he’d need to commit to a serious daily practice. Months later, Jim was surprised to find that in addition to healing his knee to the point that surgery was no longer necessary, yoga transformed his life.

Jim enjoys sharing the healing power of yoga and meditation as a yoga teacher and filmmaker. He has spent much of the past 20 years traveling the world, learning languages and studying under gurus from India and Europe to Brazil. He earned his Masters in Film Theory at UND and studied cinematography at the Polish National Film School. Jim and his wife, Angie, have produced three yoga DVDs, including “Mysore Magic: Yoga at the Source,” which is being distributed in over 60 countries. Their website is upwardspiralfilms.com

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

  1. It’s very unfortunate that people resort to yoga and meditation as a desperate bid to get better. More often than not, it’s a last resort. This really should be our first and primary approach if we really want ourselves to heal

  2. It's just that the capacity of humans to understand the real truth of life force is decreasing. people look for quick fixes rather than root fixes! curse of KALIYUG

  3. Sanathana Dharma one of oldest 'Way of Life' has contributed and still contributing for humanity in many forms ( Yoga, Ayurveda, Astrology, ZERO,. etc) Practice, enrich and explore Sanathana Dharma !

  4. Thankyou Jim, such a simple lesson than has taken me 42 years of living to hear. This knowledge is powerful and healing, and I will be sure to practise and spread the word. Namaste.

  5. Great talk and vision, Jim! Thank you for sharing your story. And don't mind negative comments – there are still unhappy people out there. But it's getting better and talks like this one are making it happen.

  7. I enjoyed this talk. But you cant compare the life span of a mouse and a whale and try and say its all down to how fast they breath. They are completely different species of animals in different habitats.

  8. There still so so much to be discovered of the ancient indian texts, that we never expected it to be there. Pakistan should also help in this expedition as because area of pakistan and india have same ancient history.

  9. Hi Jim,
    I am studying engineering and live in a hostel.
    I plan to start doing yoga using books or online videos.
    Please suggest a good online resource that is genuine and would be able to instruct me the right exercises in the right way.

  10. So amazing, the benefits of pranayama! Everyone should turn to yoga, meditation and breath work instead of reaching for medications or considering surgery as a primary choice of healing.

  11. This is so cool, even if for the parenting insight alone. Overall, what a good story and presentation, and good content and message.

    Explaining how you've taught your daughter how to calm down was genius imo (on top of the genius that is teaching your child these skills since birth!!).

    "If a baby can do it, then so can you" lol yes!

  12. Sanathana Dharma or Hinduism one of oldest 'Way of Life' for Humans has contributed in all ways possible for Humanity. SAVE Hinduism.. SAVE Hindus !
