The duration of our breath has been a subject of interest for a long time in yogic teachings. It is said that ancient teachers used to gauge their student's readiness for philosophical teachings based on their breathing. Specifically the ratio of the inhale and exhale. If the student's breath ratio was out of balance even by a blink (they literally measured time by blinks back then!) the teacher would send them back claiming that they were not ready.
