Moonly app expands its global presence with German-language meditations

Currently, the app library contains more than 50 meditations in total

12 October 2022. Moonly — a mindfulness app with 3M+ users, which combines spiritual practices and a detailed Moon calendar, has launched another major update — now, all meditations are also available in German.

There are over 3,000 scientific studies indicating the benefits of meditation. Studies have involved Buddhist monks who have devoted thousands of hours to meditation and beginners who practice meditation just for 15 minutes each day. In addition to relieving anxiety, meditation helps to unwind, focus, improve concentration and attention, as well as relax the nervous system.

“The hectic rhythm of life in any city, as a rule, is very intense and somewhat exhausting — work, constant movement around the city in heavy traffic, meetings, the ‘get it done now’ attitude. Over time, without proper attention to yourself, such a rhythm of life often can lead to burnout and anxiety. That is why it’s so important for us to open as many doors, so to speak, as possible to the space of sustainable contact with ourselves through meditation. Hence we continue to translate the content in our app into other languages.”

— Olga Ramora, Moonly app founder

Today, the meditations and content in Moonly are available in English, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. The involvement of linguists and translators has become an integral part of making all of Moonly’s content (including meditations) more accessible to a broader audience.

“On the one hand, fear and anxiety are valuable experiences that help to feel the importance of the moment, turn on defense mechanisms in time and mobilize the emotional reserve. But when natural and temporary anxiety turns into a permanent personality trait, it can have a destructive effect on a person. To prevent this from happening, it’s essential to devote time to meditation, 10-15 minutes a day is more than enough. For beginners, I would recommend starting with meditations on vitality — for example, the Relaxation and Health meditation helps to improve sleep, and the Loving Kindness Meditation from the Contact with Emotions series tunes in to the most healing states for the body — love and forgiveness, as from these states it’s easier to fight heightened anxiety and stress.

— Victoria Mukha, Moonly app psychologist and producer

Moonly users who have the app installed can already start listening to meditations in German — all they need is to update their account’s language settings in the app itself. New Moonly users can download the app from Google Play or the App Store.
