2 Apps in This BundleSee All
Enjoy the many physical and emotional benefits of guided meditation and relaxation with the Meditation and Relaxation Bundle by Dr. Tanie Kabala. This bundle features both the Rest and Restore app and Present and Peaceful app. Dr. Kabala is a clinical psychologist with over ten years of experience using meditation and relaxation to help her patients relieve stress, sleep better, reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, and achieve a greater overall sense of well-being.
This bundle offers five diverse meditation and relaxation practices of varying lengths. The first is a mindfulness meditation, a deeply calming practice that focuses on attending to the breath and relaxing the body. Next, there is walking meditation that allows the listener to experience the benefits of meditation while enjoying the experience of movement. This practice is excellent for those who struggle with "sitting still." The apps also offer a five-minute restoration exercise, a calming and rejuvenating exercise that is perfect when relaxation is needed but time is short. There is also a progressive muscle relaxation exercise, one in which the listener slowly tenses and releases the muscles of the body, a practice that brings deep relaxation to both body mind. Finally, this bundle offers a guided imagery exercise that takes listeners on a deeply relaxing journey to the beach.
Each practice allows the listener to take a break from the outside world, turn the focus within, and experience deep body-mind relaxation and rejuvenation. The exercises are perfect for both beginners (who might appreciate the instructions offered throughout the exercises) and individuals with meditation and relaxation experience who would like to add to their current practices.
In these apps, the volumes of both the voice and background music are controlled completely by you, the user: choose your perfect blend of voice and background music, choose no music at all, or choose to simply meditate to the calming sounds of musician Matt Magarahan's soothing background music.
The apps also include a feature that allows you to play your own music in the background: choose your favorite music to enhance your meditation or relaxation experience.
Additionally, you can choose to continue the background music for ten minutes after the completion of each exercise, allowing you to prolong each meditation or relaxation session if desired.
Here is what listeners are saying about the Meditation and Relaxation Bundle:
"These apps are great because there is a meditation or relaxation exercise for whatever mood you're in and whatever amount of time you have. Sometimes I feel like doing a walking meditation, other times I just want to lie back and do the beach imagery exercise. If I feel really tense, the progressive muscle relaxation is perfect, and the short meditation is great when I don't have much time but need a break from the busy day. I LOVE Dr. Kabala's voice too-- it is so calming and relaxing. Great apps!"
"We use these for our whole family, to help everybody fall asleep!"
"Great for reducing stress!"

Ratings and Reviews
Rest and restore bundle
I'm sandwiched with the needs of my 90+ year old mom and my kids and grandchildren who live a half-day drive away. I was never interested in meditation or just didn't want to take the time for it. As my stress level climbed I needed something and decided to try this. I am hooked!!! The voice, the pace, the music, everything is really wonderful! The walking med is my favorite but all are so calming. I can't believe it. Five stars for sure!!!
I'm glad I purchased the bundle. The two apps offer an array of exercises that have really helped me reduce my stress level.
All you need for a great meditation and relaxation practice!
This little bundle has everything you need if you want to begin a relaxation or meditation practice! It has great variety so I can choose the type of exercise and length of exercise that I'm in the mood for (even if I have only five minutes to spare)- and every single one is excellent. The voice is instantly relaxing and there is the perfect amount of guidance. These apps have definitely helped me be more calm, mindful, and present with my loved ones. I recommend this bundle highly!
