excerpt:
Why should I use Diguju Breath?
Combining 7sb's passaddhi-sambojjhanga with first 4 steps of 16APS to make the breath comfortable and gently straighten the spine naturally and sustainably. This is also a great practice for your overall health, to frequently incorporate this breathing technique and fight the body's lazy natural tendency to breathe using less of our lung capacity as we age, resulting in declining oxygen and waste removal of carbon dioxide as we get older.

Sounds like manipulative Hindu Pranayama rather than Anapanasati. Anapanasati appears to be knowing, calming & purifying of breathing using mindfulness/remembrance of letting go. :meditate:
