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.

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,

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.
