Learning to Breathe is the third studio album by the band Switchfoot. It was released on September 26, 2000. It was their final record for independent label re:think Records, which was distributed by Sparrow Records. This album also received a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Gospel Album in 2001.[6]


A music video was filmed for the song "You Already Take Me There". It shows the band skydiving out of an airplane, and playing the song on the ground.[7]


The songs "I Dare You to Move" and "Learning to Breathe" were prominently used in a popular teen romantic drama film starring Mandy Moore and Shane West, A Walk to Remember (2002).

The phrase "Love Is the Movement" has been adopted as a motto by To Write Love on Her Arms, a non-profit organization that Switchfoot supports.
