Savitri is the extra preset training type in Prana Breath app, available in Guru version.
- giving the feeling of harmony
- soothing and relaxing the bustling mind
- proven in bettering respiratory parameters
- rejuvenating in case of having not enough sleep
- nurtures and restores health during illness
This training type, as well as "Harmony" and "Power", is derived from Pranayama, an ancient Vedic technique of breathing gymnastics. In Sanskrit, "Savitri" is a feminine form for "Savitu" (the Sun), and is hence referred to as "Goddess of solar harmony."
In Prana Breath this training type is adapted even for people that don't practice Yoga and/or don't have much time for practice but still need its effect.
