Meditation has ancient roots – so does Sattva. Authentic, deeply profound and drawing from Vedic principles of meditation that have been around for thousands of years, the meditations, sacred sounds and music are delivered by Sanskrit scholars. If you’re new to meditation, you’ll find simple, yet deep meditations starting from just six minutes. You can also set goals and reminders to build up your practice. For seasoned meditators there are 100+ guided meditations, sacred sounds (chant and mantras) and music tracks to use in your meditation practice. The app offers a robust free version and two monthly subscription options.
