Breathing is the most natural process that occurs to every living person and animal. It doesn’t matter if we’re sleeping, working or just relaxing, we always breathe and we just don’t pay attention to it. Maybe because it’s very simple; inhale and exhale and so on. But it’s a lot more complex than it appears to be. If you can control your breathing properly, you’ll live a better and longer life. But remember that breathing is not just about building a strong stamina. You might be good at running, but it doesn’t mean that you breathe properly. There are many chances that you can improve your stamina further if you can control heavy breathing which prevents from running for longer distances. Moreover, it gives you calm, peace and a fresh mind which is why yoga is very different from exercising. So while you have many bodybuilding apps in the store, let’s check out one which tells a different story.

I am talking about the latest iOS app called Breathe 911 that has been developed by Traumatology Institute. The developers provide E-therapy and trauma care online as they run their own website. Their app is universal i.e. compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 5.1 or any later version of the OS. The app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.

This is a very simple app. It helps to improve your breathing practice. There is a simple animation of inhale and exhale and you have to follow it. For example, you have to inhale air as long as it shows the inhale sign on the screen. As it turns to exhale, you have to start taking out the air. It might seem simple but it’s not. For example, here the inhale and exhale time periods are same. However, they’re usually different for a normal person. If you inhale for a longer period, you’ll take out all the air in a short moment of time because of the pressure. So this app will help you to control that sudden burst and regulate the air flow. What more will this breathe control bring to you is the sense of calmness and peace. You can say bye to your stress, anxieties and live a worry free life.

You can change the time period for which you want to practice this yoga art form. Moreover, you can change the speed as well with which you inhale and exhale. It’s difficult to breathe slowly initially and therefore starting from the higher speeds, you can steadily reach the slower levels. One element of this app that I liked the most was the beautiful music. It was simple, soothing to ears and will do half the job of calming your nerves.

Overall, I really liked this app and would recommend it to you as well. It’s available for $0.99 in the App Store. So make sure you check it out!

Pros: soothing music; intuitive UI; helps to regulate your breathing.

Cons: none.
