Method Pros Cons
Breath Counting Simple and easy Not the most accurate
Using a Pulse Oximeter Very accurate Can be expensive


Here are some common questions we get about the Pranayama Estimator:

  1. How is the Pranayama Estimator calculated? It’s calculated by multiplying the number of breaths per minute by the time in minutes, and then dividing by the level of difficulty.
  2. Is the Pranayama Estimator accurate? It’s a rough estimate and shouldn’t be used as a definitive measure.
  3. Can I use the Pranayama Estimator as a health indicator? While the Pranayama Estimator can provide some insights, it’s not a medical tool and should not be used to diagnose or treat any health conditions.
  4. Does the level of difficulty affect the Pranayama Estimator? Yes, the level of difficulty is factored into the calculation of the Pranayama Estimator.
  5. Can the Pranayama Estimator be used for other breathing exercises? The Pranayama Estimator is specifically designed for pranayama exercises, so it might not give accurate results for other types of breathing exercises.
  6. Can I use any timer for the Pranayama Estimator? While you can use any timer, it’s important to note that the accuracy of the timer can affect the accuracy of the Pranayama Estimator.
  7. What does the range in the categories mean? The range indicates the scores for each category. The higher the score, the more advanced the practitioner.
  8. Can external factors affect my Pranayama Estimator? Yes, factors such as stress can affect your breathing and consequently, your Pranayama Estimator.
  9. What alternatives are there to the Pranayama Estimator? There are other methods such as breath counting and using a pulse oximeter. However, these methods have their own pros and cons.
