**** ABOUT PRANAYAMA ****
Pranayama is composed of two Sanskrit words: Prāna, which means life force, or vital energy (for the breath particularly) and "āyāma," to suspend or restrain. It is often translated as control of the life force. When used as a technical term in yoga, it is often translated more specifically as "breath control." For current students of yoga, our app can help you improve your technique without much conscious effort, so that you can focus your mind purely on breathing and technique. It is a portable, customizable tool that will take your practice of yoga to the next level.

I’ve had this app for many years and find it very helpful. I wish it were integrated into Apple Health, though. No updates for four years doesn’t bode well for the future of this app.
I use this every day as a timer for Nine Bottled Winds breathing, and it's fantastic.
Used this app practically everyday for three years now. It just works
