277 – Healing Your Body through Breathwork with Niraj Naik



When Niraj Naik started his job as a pharmacist, he immediately knew it was not for him. But family and cultural expectations led him to believe that it was the path he had to take in life…until it all fell apart seven years later.


Career stress and disillusionment led Niraj to develop an autoimmune condition, and nothing in his medicine cabinet helped. After trying all types of traditional medicine, he went “renegade” and began studying yoga, Ayurveda and breathwork, completely healing his condition through these natural methods.


His illness became the “gift of desperation” in his life that led him to his calling: teaching the world about energy, breath and how to bring the body into balance through SOMA Breath®, his online school teaching breathing techniques to people around the world.


In this episode, Niraj shares his story of healing through ancient wisdom and the science behind the power of the breath. He gives several breathing techniques for us to try and explains how these impact our oxygen levels, energy levels and overall physiology for optimum wellness. 


Listen to discover:


  • How Niraj turned his lowest moment into a gift of healing
  • Using music and breath to reprogram the subconscious mind
  • How to listen to your body’s “indicator light” that something is off
  • Questions to ask yourself to check in with your wellness
  • The power of breathing for your physiology and health
  • Three sample breathing techniques to try


This is an eye-opening episode about the true power we have to heal and how our bodies were designed for balance. It’s up to us to pay attention to when we are out of balance and to care for ourselves at the most fundamental level – our breath.


“We tend to be conditioned by our parents, the school we go to, the media, just the culture we live in to follow a certain path.” – Niraj Naik


“So many of us just push through, we ignore, we numb out, we just keep going and we’re not tuning into what your soul is trying to tell you.” – Michelle Chalfant 


“Diseases affect you where you’re weakest in your body.” – Niraj Naik


“In that moment, as humans, we have a choice: we can look at it and learn from it and ask, ‘What the gift is in this?’” – Michelle Chalfant


“Stress can eat away at us, and we ignore it. We have to start paying attention.” – Michelle Chalfant


“We help people to wake up to who they really are.” – Niraj Naik
