Editor's review

Published 23 Mar 2021

Even in a normal year, our day-to-day living can be so hectic that surely we could all benefit from having a little calmness and tranquility in our lives from time to time. However, given the lives that we are leading now, I would think that it would become even more essential. While the rest of the world goes mad with the stresses of life, meditative people seem to be much calmer, much more centered and seem to be able to cope with most things that the world throws at them. 

There are plenty of meditation apps available on the app market and most have their merits to recommend them. Trasa (pronounced traw-suh) is part of the next generation of mindfulness apps that is designed for busy people like you and me. As much as anything else, the reason that it caught our attention initially was for its simplicity and effectiveness. Trasa's aim is to help you achieve emotional calm and clarity by immersing your sensations in scientifically matched sensory stimuli. The app frees your mind and helps you to refresh, focus and relax via textures, colors, sounds and vibrations. 

It's a very simple app to use. Start off by simply tapping the 'sessions' button and you'll be presented with one of a series of calming images on your screen. You can scroll through them to find an image that best suits your current state of mind. Click on the image to open a session or click and hold to find out more. As the image slowly fades to black, gradually close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Immerse yourself into the music and the natural psychological rhythms and let your mind enjoy the tranquility of the moment. When you hear the tone you can slowly open your eyes and focus again on the photo. And that's all there is to it. No yoga mats or yoga pants. No teachers. Just you, a set of headphones (preferably) and a moment in time. 

Trasa isn't an app that you need to dedicate large parts of your day to. It's easy to simply take a moment of calm to refocus and refresh your mind and body whenever you wish. Tap on the 'myself' and 'schedule' buttons to set a reminder and either add a session or set up one for later in the day or night. There's also a 'recurring' button for regular visits and you can even set up goals for each session. To set your mood just click on the 'mood' button - you will see the color and smile change - and swipe your finger through the changes until you reach the one that suits you best. Tap on the X button to record your mood for the day and Trasa's intelligent algorithms will do the rest. 

To access the sessions just scroll up and down and swipe the screen. In-app sessions can be found in the browser menu whereas online sessions can be found through the 'moments' button. These can be watched on your computer or via your tv or device and you can tap the session in-app to find the correct sensory accompaniment to the video session. Trasa is basically a free meditation and calmness app but there is also a premium plan. Purchase Chi and you can open all sessions including vibrations to accompany your online sessions. You can try Trasa for 7 days to see if it suits you. Any of the free sessions that you indulge in will then be yours for life. The developers also have a publication called Trasa Life which is a companion to the app and features regular updates and interesting articles. Free your mind and refresh, focus and relax with Trasa wherever you may be.
