We’re spending most of our time at home these days, but virtual guided meditation can help us stay centered.

The Best Virtual Guided Meditation Classes To Livestream Your Daily Dose of Calm


1. Breathwork


Breathwork class begins with setting an intention. Then, your medication coach will guide you in a two-part deep breathing technique to release stress and resistance, allowing creativity and happiness to rush in. Breathwork helps calm the nervous system and release endorphins to help your body calm itself. It’s a great way to become present quickly, and works as something of a “reset” for the rest of your day. Research indicates that breathwork is believed to help improve our emotional state while decreasing stress. Perfect option for a busy day!

2. Calm, Present, & Relaxed


This class offers the powerful impact of meditation in a speedy format without sacrificing effectiveness. Calm, Present & Relaxed offers a 30-minute version of Unplug’s classic course format. If you’re rushing through a busy day of doing, this is a perfect opportunity to squeeze in a break to just be, whether it’s on your lunch break or a quick midday detour to peace and quiet.


In this class, your meditation coach will guide you into the present moment as you practice breath and body awareness techniques. You’ll spend half an hour truly immersed in the moment, and developing a greater awareness of your physical self and bodily sensations. Why are you having a particularly stressful or agitated day today? Meditation teachers in this session can help you consider the root causes so you can move freely from them.


Short virtual guided meditations offer a break to decompress in the middle of your workday. You can let the pile-up of stress from the first half of your day evaporate, and let go of any tension from difficult meetings or conversations. This pause is a great way to refresh your mind so you can return to your work with rejuvenated creativity and focus. You might even be a more cheerful coworker for the rest of the day!
