A Yoga Podcast Playlist to Keep You Healthy & Inspired During Tough Times




Podcasts for yogis: This quarantine period has been tough for a lot of us. There’s uncertainty in areas of health, money, job security, the economy, and so much more. Those with struggles in mental health may be triggered by recent events. It hasn’t been easy. 


But one thing is for sure. The yoga community has really risen up in these times in big ways. Many teachers and studios have moved their offerings online. Lots of teachers have taken to social media to stay connected with their students. For many people, practicing yoga at home is a big highlight of their day. 


So… what do we do with the rest of the day? 


You’ve done yoga, walked your dog seven times, cut your own bangs (*don’t cut your own bangs), watched Tiger King, scrolled social media, regretted watching Tiger King, scrolled social media some more…


And for a lot of us at this point we start to lose motivation. That’s why we’ve compiled this playlist of podcasts to reinspire you, make you laugh, and pique your interest in something new. 


And hey, with all this time on your hands, maybe these podcasts will inspire you to start your own podcast!
