**** 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.

Ratings and Reviews
As it says, this is the lite version. At the rime of writing, the full version costs £2.99/$4.99. Most lite apps are free.
The app also wants to know your location, which has nothing to do with rhe software, merely the authors wanting to know where you are.
Beefs over, this is a nifty bit of kit. The time passes very quickly during the exercises and you can adjust the phases (limited to in for 1, out for 2 OR in for 1, hold for 1, out for 2, in the lite version) and the length of those phases. The app keeps a log (using a lotus flower legend!) of which exercises you've done.
Finally, when you're finished, it just stops, save for a message on the screen. Some audile signal, such as a subtle chime perhaps - rather than just sudden silence - at least on my view. Chances are the silence is to encourage you to stay in a peaceful calm - not great for yang personality types!
Effective breathing exercise
It's easy to do and just five minutes a day makes a difference. UI could be better.
Great simple app
I am looking to relax and work on breathing this app is great simple to use. Hoping to get the full version soon!
