The Sound of Waves program uses the rhythmic pattern of waves as a guide for your breathing. The idea is to sync your inhale/exhale rhythm with the ebb and flow of the wave, and maintain that pattern for an entire session (which could be a 10-minute de-stress session or a few minutes before falling asleep).
The 3 program options move at different breathing rates: Level I is a rate of 7 breaths per minute (bpm), Level II is a rate of 6 bpm, Level III is a rate of 5 bpm. We recommend starting at Level II; if your natural breathing pace is longer (slower) than the wave pattern, move up to Level III. As you become practiced, you will feel like you are breathing with the ocean and it will become easier and easier to fall into this rhythm when you lie down, or awake in the middle of the night.
