Meditation App Anamaya: “An empowering self-development and meditation resource for life on the go.”, Graham Doke

Posted on Updated on

As an osteopath, I recommend meditation for many reasons.

By experience, I found it very helpful for some patients in between osteopathic sessions, it helps regulating stress, anxiety, being more positive, improving emotional awareness, helps to focus to perform better, being just less worried, or more relaxed, it can help to improve your motivation as well.

I like to give to my patients advice / tools that they can use in between osteopathic sessions to improve their lifestyle, and meditation is one of them.

One very common comment I hear is “where can I go to meditate?”, or “I don’t have the time to go somewhere for this”.

I think that the Anamaya App is an excellent idea, as it gives more people the chance to create space in their “me time” for meditation sessions, at home, travelling, or outdoors.
