People usually breathe in a way that is unconscious which makes it easy to forget your breath in yoga. It can be especially difficult for beginners to remember to breathe properly not only to reap the benefits but also to get in and out of poses. My concept for a yoga top provides haptic feedback to set the rhythm and remind the user of their breathing.
