The new iOS-app VaYou is a wonderful tool for getting in beneficial contact with yourself. It’s easy! By breathing with VaYou’s sounds – generated directly by you – and with realtime biofeedback, breath, mind and heart increasingly flow as one.
No other app or desktop-software does live biofeedback like VaYou.
In VaYou’s LIVE-mode you put the iPhone on the belly. You do not have to, but it is wise to switch to Airplane mode beforehand : You are free of radiowaves near your body! With Airplane mode ON, flowing with Vayou is a 100% healthy and safe.
The PACER mode is fine when you want to get into a breath-flow with a selected breath rate (Settings). You will use paced breathing when you want to have a guided breath-flow. Using the PACER is also fine when you are on the move, in a train or a moving airplane. In PACER mode you do not have to put the iPhone on your belly.
You will be guided by VaYou in three ways:
For instance many people have a healthy and prominent heart rate variability (HRV) at about 6.0 breaths per minute. (For kids this value is slightly higher.)
It’s easy. All you have to do is find a quiet place to lie down on your back or sit upright or reclined, put on your headphones and select one of the VaYou-Flows. Place your iPhone or iPod touch on your belly and slide it halfway inside the belt line of your pants and continue breathing naturally. You will hear your live-breathing from the belly, analyzed and transformed into a combination of specially programmed sounds, which are “played” and modulated by your breath~flow. By and by you will flow into a slightly slowed and regular breath-rhythm that feels one with the sounds.
When lying down in a dark room, your breath-flow is also displayed as a smooth color-light transition you can see projected on the ceiling. Moreover you can connect your iPhone to an AppleTV, supplying you with an even more intense optical feedback via flatscreen, where the changing colors mirror your breath-flow in realtime.
Your breathing becomes more evenly balanced and eventually slows. Commonly said, the mind-active sounds modulate your mental and somatic state in the direction of homeostasis. These subtle modulations within yourself can be an effective aid for a variety of personal difficulties, actual challenges, or personal “projects”.
Do you have an “issue” right now? You can do something about it: choose one or two Vayou~Flows that suit your personal taste and invest 10 minutes twice a day (or more) for undistracted VaYou time. You will experience how your mental state changes over time.
Here some examples where VaYou can be helpful.
Please note …
… this is just the beginning of a long-lasting VaYou~process, not just with and in yourself. Numerous features are filling our tables and we are curious to get to know your wishes in order to prioritize accordingly. Feel free to get in contact with us and the VaYou-community.
