Science and practice
State was born at the intersection of age-old fundamental practices, new neuroscientific findings and human development.
Breathing is a simple act that we tend to take for granted. But the way we breathe can have a profound impact on the way we live. By researching ancient practices like yoga and the martial arts, and studying the breathing mechanics of elite performers, we started to notice patterns. We learned that everyone handles stress and responds to breath control in different ways.
We knew we could coach individuals through custom breathing exercises, but we wanted to provide the world with guided breathing benefits. So we built state - an algorithm powered app that adapts to each unique user.
