India's chief national badminton coach Pullela Gopichand launched ‘Dhyana for Sports’, a new meditation-track app for athletes, on Wednesday in Hyderabad.
This app is inspired from Gopichand’s personal experience when he conducted the camp with big players like PV Sindhu, Saina Nehwal, Parupalli Kashyap, Kidambi Srikanth, B Sai Praneeth, Satwik Sairaj, Sikki Reddy, HS Prannoy Sumeeth Reddy among others.
The app offers ten sessions that are tailor-made for athletes to monitor and analyse their state of meditation. It will help them develop a champion's mindset. They will also have to wear Dhyana wearable ring which is capable of measuring the constant variation in milliseconds between an user’s heartbeats (HRV), which along with advanced algorithms in the app, simplifies a meditation in three core tenets – breathing, focus and relaxation.
According to Gopichand, the ability to stay positive and focus-driven is a quality that needs to cultivate, particularly in these trying times when most of our goals for the year have been waylaid by the pandemic. The app has been designed to achieve stronger emotional wellbeing, motivate players and enable them to focus on the road to excellence.
The Dhyana app is available for free on both the Google play store and App store. This Dhyana wearable ring is priced at Rs 6,999 available on Amazon or www.smartdhyana.com
