- A structured course that gradually reduces your breathing rate as you progress through the sessions.
- Each music style has it own individualized background music to transport you to a more relaxing place as you practice.

Our animated graphics give you a way to visualize your breathing. You have the dial animation, which shows you the relative length of each breathing phase, and the human animation, which shows you the physical aspects of proper breathing techniques.

Version 2.2
Review by Emjay838383

My most used app - I love to meditate and do pranayama. This app is so awesome because my own internal counting never stays even throughout the duration of my practice. I tend to slow down over time. With this I don't have to worry about it. I can also see my progress and work slowly and systematically towards a longer khumbaka (breath retention). All wonderful things!!! Thank you! The one thing I would love to see is a more detailed version of my time spent at each level. I'd rather know exactly how much work I've done. 1-3 hours and 3-8 hours are way too general for categories. It might also be nice to connect with others who are practicing.

Version 2.2
Review by Dareado

If I could use it, maybe I would rate it better. - I had the free version of this app which was quite beneficial and made me want to upgrade to the paid version. I downloaded the paid version and when I went to open it, it took up the full screen without the option of minimizing the application and the menu was in the lower left corner, half out of site. There was no way to click on any options and since there was no option to minimize the screen, nothing I could do. I have closed the app and tried again. I have also deleted it, redownloaded it and opened it, but with no change. This is obviously an error and I hope just a fluke that I have to deal with alone and not many others have this problem, but nonethless I wish they would help me fix this.

not very customizable - Just some presets for some supposed average user, in search of a quick trip to some idealized ratios. Cosidering what one can do with a little programing this is pathetic. Who cares what they think is beginnner, intermediate, and advanced - every setting should be totally customizable,

Review by Taocycle

Great basic pranayama app - Fantastic app for developing breath retention style pranayama practice. Very customizable, all timers can be adjusted (though the instructions for customization are not too hot, but it isn’t difficult). And yes, this SHOULD be a full-screen app. If you are looking at other windows, you aren’t meditating.
