Drawing breath is a collaborative research project with yin yoga teacher and MIT scholar, Dina Amsterdam, and molecular chemist David Glowacki. We designed a device that Dina wears whist teaching yin breathing techniques. The device interacts with the Danceroom Spectroscopy system (a technology developed in 2012 to visualize simulations of molecular dynamics), bringing together yogic breathing and atomic motion.
