About this app

Awesome Breathing is a simple, elegant tool to guide and visualize your breathing. Use it daily to help with meditation, sleep, stress, anxiety, or to simply bring a few moments of calm or mindfulness to your day.

"Beautiful and responsive UI with customizable breathing patterns."

"I became interested recently in breathwork. This app is a fantastic aid to that work. I only discovered it after weeks of using stopwatches and timers. Great app, thank you!!!!"

"Excellent app, simple to use. As a psychotherapist I am using it myself and recommending to clients who might benefit."

"Simple. Intuitive. Beautiful UI and gestures. Amazing breath app that helps you stay mindful."


• Clean, simple interface allows for uncluttered and calming breathing experience
• Fully customizable inhale, exhale, and (optional) pause durations
• Choose from included programs such as Box Breathing, Relaxing Breathing, Equal Breathing, Measured Breathing, and Triangle Breathing
• Create and save custom programs!
• Sessions can be free-form (no duration) or timed duration (up to 30 minutes)
• Optional pre-session countdown timer allows for a few moments to "settle in" before your session begins
• Choose from several pacer color themes
• Optional guided vocal cues signal when to inhale, exhale, and hold so breathing can be done without looking at your device
• Vibration mode allows for silent breathing sessions
• Bells can be enabled to signal the beginning and end of your sessions

Included Programs:

Box Breathing (4-4-4-4)

Also known as Navy SEAL or tactical breathing, this is a surprisingly simple and effective way to help regain calm and control of your thoughts when under stress. Inhale for 4, hold for 4, exhale for 4, hold for 4. All through your nose.

Relaxing Breathing (4-7-8)

Have trouble falling asleep? Try this 4-7-8 technique. Inhale for 4 through your nose, hold for 7, exhale for 8 out of your mouth.

Equal Breathing (4-4)

A pranayama practice called Sama Vritti, this breath can help take your mind off the racing thoughts or whatever might be distracting you. Inhale for 4, exhale for 4. All through your nose. (Try a 6 or 8 count, once you feel comfortable.)

Measured Breathing (4-1-7)

A handy stress-reducing practice that can be done anywhere, anytime. Inhale for 4, hold for 1, exhale for 7. All through your nose.

Triangle Breathing (4-4-4)

Another great technique that can help alleviate anxiety or stress. Imagine a triangle with equal sides. Inhale for 4, exhale for 4, pause for 4. Repeat.

We hope Awesome Breathing helps you reach your goals, and look forward to being a part of your journey. We are just getting started, so would love to hear your reviews and feedback!

Edit: all issues addressed, awesome job! 5/5. Good app, simple to use. Some feature requests: #1: Please improve the interface for increasing/decreasing the time for each section. I should be able to hold the + or - to change the time quickly instead of tapping once for every 0.1 second change. #2: Please make it possible to remove one of the breathing sections. I do not want to hold my breath after inhale or exhale, but there is no way to delete those sections

Hi! Could you please download the newest version of our app? You can now press/hold +/- to quickly adjust times, and you can set hold times to zero. Please consider updating your rating/review if you are satisfied - thanks!

Simple but just what I was looking for! I wanted an app that would visualize (and speak) to guide breathing for my daughter to help her go to sleep without being distracting. I love that you can customize the time duration, use a dark display if you choose, and pick the level of verbal cues. Well executed!

Love this app! I can customize or use an existing option. It is simple and easy to use with none of the distracting and overwhelming bells and whistles the other apps have. It also works offline and is free of ads and distractions. It's perfect for me and has helped my health dramatically. I highly recommend!
