About the Author

Sandra A. McLanahan, MD, received her medical degree from Wayne State University, and completed a residency in Family Practice at the University of Massachusetts. Dr. McLanahan has served as director of stress management for the Preventive Medicine Research Institute of San Francisco, California. She is currently the founder and Executive Medical Director of Integral Health Services, a holistic health care practice in Buckingham, Virginia.

Meera Patricia Kerr began her study of Yoga in the early 1970s under Sri Swami Satchidananda. After giving birth to her two children, Meera realized that nobody had adapted traditional Yoga poses for the more curvaceous body. As a result, she developed the Big Yoga program, showing people of all shapes and sizes how to enjoy this ancient practice. Meera continues to study and teach Yoga, and is the best-selling author of Big Yoga and Big Yoga for Less Stress.


"Authors Meera Patricia Kerr and Sandra A. McLanahan, MD bring their in-depth practicing experiences to this accessible and informative new book regarding respiratory health . . . scientific info delivered clearly, nutritional approaches to improve lung function, treatments to improve breathing, and a basic introduction to their proposed methods . . . the overall scope of information and instruction provided in this book is full -- and the quality of communication between the authors and the reader is excellent. This is a fine book for those impaired by chronic cough, asthma, COPD, and other pulmonary deficits, but it is also a fine manual for those who care for family members or neighbors or friends with breathing problems . . . a solid resource."

-- "Grady Harp, top book reviewer"

"In this era of COVID-19, our respiratory system has come into far sharper focus . . . [Take a Deep Breath] was already going to be an extremely useful handbook on how to breathe more effectively. But now it's become even more timely. . . packed with clear explanations and practical exercises . . . written with a profound depth of knowledge and common sense. For anyone who is facing breathing issues and the debilitating stress they can trigger; or for anyone with a loved one having trouble taking a deep breath, it provides answers as well as comfort."
