As part of an initiative by the NYU Wellness Exchange, along with Counseling and Behavioral Services, this page offers several free meditation podcasts based upon different themes, including “Body Awareness” and “Progressive Muscle Relaxation.”
This website offers more than thirty podcasts primarily through an iPhone application, which is available for $2.99. The podcasts are mainly guided meditations with music, though a few are talks about meditation. Topics covered range from general such as “Body Balance Meditation,” to the more specific, such as “Pregnancy Meditation.”
This page is presented by the Mindful Awareness Research Center at the University of California, Los Angeles, as part of an effort to increase inner calm and introspection according to historic traditions, combining them with scientific research. The podcasts range in length, and cover topics such as “Meditation for Working with Difficulties” and Loving Kindness Mediation.”
The podcasts offered on this website are somewhat longer, and generally feature chanting or interesting talks about yoga rather than simple guided meditation. This yoga website fits into founder Kino MacGregor’s philosophy of wellness through conscious living and Ashtanga Yoga. A Master’s Graduate of NYU, MacGregor runs a studio out in California with her husband.
