What are the best yoga and meditation podcasts of 2021?
Ever since meditation became a multi-billion dollar industry in 2019, the industry has exploded. We’ve seen the rises of yoga and meditation apps, games, and yes, podcasts. And a lot of them are truly exceptional.
As a meditation teacher, I listen to meditation podcasts every day, and in my humble opinion, the following are the very best.
You Need To Listen To These Yoga And Meditation Podcasts
Yoga Girl Podcast
The Yoga Girl podcast and website is all about creating a community of yogis. The podcast inspires us to heal ourselves and to heal the world. This podcast is full of love and feeling good. It covers everything from meditation to yoga to mental health and more.
I love the message the Yoga Girls gives its readers and listeners. It’s one of acceptance, love and compassion—you know, the qualities that the world needs more than anything else.
Meditation Oasis is a website, app and podcast that aims to provide guided meditations to improve health and happiness. Their meditations have been used by businesses, schools, and hospitals, so you know that their content is top-notch.
The Meditation Oasis podcast has more than sixty episodes, some of which are on classic themes like loving kindness, and others on very contemporary matters, like dealing with the stress of the pandemic.
I love their combination of classical meditation tuition and modern guided methods—it provides suitable content for everyone. Definitely worth a listen.
Be Here Now Network
The Be Here Now Network is a website and podcast inspired by the seminal book of Ram Dass.
Probably the single most amazing thing about Be Here Now is the quality of guests that they have on the show. They include the likes of Sharon Salzberg and Jack Kornfield. Each episode goes into depths on topics related to spirituality, Buddhism, and meditation. I learn something every time I listen.
Production values are off the charts here too. Both the website and the podcast are insanely well designed; some of the highest quality work I’ve seen.

The Meditation Podcast
Aptly named, The Meditation Podcast was founded in 2006 by husband-and-wife team Jesse & Jeane. The podcast features guided meditations, binaural beats, and mindfulness to create the perfect platform for relaxation and wellbeing.
This is one of the longest-standing meditation podcasts, with more than ten years on air. What I love most about this one is the passion I can feel from Jesse and Jeane every time I listen. It’s got that natural, homegrown feel that is so wonderfully wholesome. A “must-listen”.
Meditation Minis is an award-winning guided meditation podcast with episodes for stress, sleep, confidence, anxiety and, well, all those other problems that we face all the time.
Meditation Minis was created hypnotherapist Chel Hamilton, and you can tell how knowledgeable Chel is about meditation in every episode.
Chel is an amazing guide who makes meditation easy for beginners. It’s the perfect podcast to listen to before your workday to get a grip on stress and to boost your happiness.
Meditation Studio App Podcast
The Meditation Studio App podcast has more episodes than any other podcast on this list. You will find episodes for literally everything. Hosts Patricia Karpas and Ariel Garten interview experts, thought-leaders, and authors in mindfulness, brain practices, leadership, and life. And you can tell that they pick their interviewees wisely because every episode contains truly insightful wisdom.
The Equinox Meditation Podcasts are one of the newest podcasts on this list, but they are also the most professionally produced. The quality of these podcasts is truly exceptional and I’m excited to see how this grows. Of course, Equinox is already a strong brand so you can be certain it will achieve big things.
The podcasts focus on getting your head in the right space. The podcast is run by the excellent Amber Voiles, an Equinox instructor. The episodes so far include: breathing, Restore, Rise, Recharge, and Unwind.
Not only is Rachael Kable insanely cute, she’s also an amazing content producer. Her blog is excellent and her podcast arguably even better. What I love most about Rachael is that she is such a warm and lovely person, and she exudes that personality in her podcasts.
There are already more than 230 episodes of this podcast and every one is packed full of warmth, insight and advice. Plus, her personality makes you want to keep on listening!
The Art of Meditation Podcast
The Art Of Meditation podcast is new and so far only has about ten episodes, but those episodes are all excellent. What I love most about this one is the depth that the hosts go into on each of their topics. The episodes tend to be about 40 minutes long, which is much longer than a lot of other meditation podcasts on this list, and because of that the episodes go more in-depth.
So far, The Art of Meditation podcast has covered topics like spiritual protection and healing, and I definitely got something out of every episode I listened to. I just wish there were more episodes!
These are my best yoga and meditation podcasts for 2020. How many have you listened to and which are your favourites?
