“This app is one of those great go to apps on my phone and ipad. To begin with, the instructions for practice coupled with animated illustrations makes it incredibly clear and easy how to practice good breathing. Mrs Ardito doesn’t push, she guides in a wonderfully calm and open way. You know it’s working because you feel it working. As I said this is one of those go to apps for me. In times of stress, sadness or just when I need a calm moment I pull this out and let her guide me there. It works every time.”
