Thank you so much for the message. We are very interested in pranayama breathing techniques. In fact, one of our advisors Kelly McGonigal just wrote a wonderful book on yoga for pain relief that discusses the importance of breath: http://www.amazon.com/Yoga-Pain-Relief-Practices-Chronic/dp/1572246898/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1250709748&sr=8-1.
That being said-- this is a community where we encourage everyone to share information, ideas, and support. I think people would be very interested in learning about these studies, and it would be great if you could post to our forum to get the conversation going.
