Stressed? Balance your life and experience a relaxed meditative state to relieve your daily stresses and tensions. Pranayama's simple and intuitive guide to deep breathing features a progressive course based on the principles of yoga, to help you find balance and stress relief.

Combining the power of breath with technology, Pranayama is an easy way of improving your health and reducing stress. Using music and animated visuals to guide you to slower deeper breathing, Pranayama by Saagara enhances the way you feel and leaves you with more energy, stamina, and focus.

Some reviews have stated the sound doesn't work - this is related to the iPad 2. If you use headphones you will hear sound, but if you remove the headphones there is no sound, though youtube, music player play without any problems, there are no keyboard clicks, most games don't have sound without headphones. There is is a "Side switch" on the side of the iPad 2 above the volume button, you will find it is in the locked position which means it is set to mute, unlock it and the app should work normally (you may need to power off and restart your iPad 2) We would recommend you switch the "Use Side Switch to" to "Lock orientation" rather than "mute" in the General settings of the iPad 2.

Volume issues on iPad - due to mute switch on side of iPad
Some users are reporting problems with the volume "disappearing"on the iPad.
There is is a "Side switch" on the side of the iPad above the volume button, you will find it is in the locked position which means it is set to mute, unlock it and the app should work normally (you may need to power off and restart your iPad). Even when it is in the mute position music will still have sound, only games etc will not.

We would recommend you switch the "Use Side Switch to" to "Lock orientation" rather than "mute" in the General settings of the iPad.
