The pandemic conditioned many consumers to breathe a little more slowly and deeply by meditating, a trend that doesn’t appear to be going away in 2021. And now Netflix is seizing on it with new shows in partnership with Headspace, a leading meditation app.
The first eight-episode show, "Headspace Guide to Meditation," will cover the science of the practice. It is scheduled to air on the streaming service on Jan. 1. Each episode, produced with Vox Media Studios, will be 20 minutes long and explore a different technique viewers can use for various situations. A subsequent series will focus on sleep, while a third will provide an interactive experience for viewers.
