If you are interested in yoga, meditation, personal growth, and alternative healing, then you will like Gaia. It’s like a treasure chest full of videos on all these topics and more. It’s all about digging deeper into what makes us tick, expanding our minds, challenging or reaffirming our beliefs, and gearing up for some serious life changes.
I personally think Gaia is only meant for people at a certain point in their life, so if it resonates with you now, then you are ready for it.
I can say that because I’ve seen Gaia advertised for years and never had an interest in checking it out. And I’m someone who is interested in meditation, personal growth, etc. But I’ve recently gone through a very hard loss in my life, and during the process Gaia suddenly became very appealing to me.
Even though they say that Gaia is like Netflix… but for the soul, not everyone is going to be interested in it until they want to go on a deeper exploration of the meaning of life and, spirituality, and other things, including the unknown.
I’m at that point in life. And, from the moment I signed up to Gaia, I’ve been loving it. It’s exactly what I need in this period of my life.
Topics On Gaia
Pretty much all the topics that you think would be covered are covered. This includes:
- Yoga: Gaia offers a variety of yoga classes and tutorials for all levels, from beginner to advanced. Whether you want to improve your flexibility, strength, or simply relax and unwind, there is something for everyone on Gaia.
- Meditation: With guided meditations focused on different themes such as stress relief, chakra healing, and mindfulness, Gaia provides a space for you to quiet your mind and connect with your inner self.
- Personal Growth: Gaia’s content goes beyond physical wellness and delves into personal growth and development. Gaia offers valuable insights for those seeking to improve their lives.

- Health & Nutrition: Along with physical exercise, proper nutrition plays a crucial role in maintaining overall wellness. Gaia offers various recipes and talks from experts on healthy eating and nutrition to help you fuel your body and mind.
One Controversial Topic On Gaia
Gaia does talk about coverups as well, such as government secrecy and conspiracy theories. If this is not your thing, there’s so much else on Gaia that you shouldn’t dismiss the site just because they talk about things like chemtrails and free energy.
In fact, if you are interested in the other stuff Gaia offers, you may want to watch an episode or two of these conspiracy theory shows. It’s all about expanding your mind, not going down a rabbit hole of mistrust and fear.
Plus, it’s always good to educate yourself on different perspectives and opinions, even if you do not agree with them. Who knows, you may end up learning something new or challenging your own beliefs and experience a shift in life. That’s happened to me many times when I engage in something I don’t want to.
How Gaia Works
Gaia is an online streaming platform that offers a wide range of content including documentaries, yoga and fitness classes, health and nutrition talks, and an abundance of series. It works on a subscription-based model where you pay a monthly fee to access all the content on the site.
There is no free access to Gaia except for the free 7-day trial that comes with initial membership.
It’s just like other streaming sites where you can add interesting shows to your playlist. And you can see related shows as you browse or watch.
Gaia Compared To Netflix Or Other Streaming Platforms
So how does Gaia differ from other streaming platforms like Netflix or Hulu? Well, while those platforms focus on entertainment, Gaia’s main goal is to provide thought-provoking and informative content that expands consciousness and promotes personal growth. It’s like having a digital library of knowledge at your fingertips.
The best part about Gaia is that you can access it from anywhere, anytime. Whether you’re at home, on the go, or even traveling abroad, as long as you have an internet connection, you can log onto Gaia and dive into its diverse content.
Not only does Gaia offer a wide range of topics, but it also features a variety of experts and thought leaders in their respective fields. From renowned scientists and spiritual teachers to health professionals and activists, Gaia brings together a wealth of knowledge from different perspectives.
There’s a lot of content! Much more than there is on other course or informative related content streaming sites that I follow.
There’s some crossover of topics and teachers between Gaia and other sites I follow, such as Humanity Stream and Mindvalley. For instance, Gregg Braden is on Gaia, and he had a course on Humanity’s Team called Forbidden Science that I listened to.
I know that Mindvalley had planned to add a course with Alan Watts, but never did. He was a philosopher who had popularized Eastern philosophy for Western audiences. You can find talks from him on Gaia. His speech on death was one of the first things I watched.
Gaia Has Original Series
There are many Gaia Originals on Gaia. For instance, there’s a series with Joe Dispenza, a neuroscience and human biology expert who talks about how we can totally reshape our lives. I have a review on his book, Becoming Supernatural. He’s totally against the idea that we’re stuck being a certain way because we’re hardwired that way or because of our genes. In his series, he breaks down how you can rewire your brain to match your dreams and desires.
What I’m Currently Watching On Gaia
There are a few things I have on-the-go on Gaia.
This is all about exploring the energy that shapes us and how we’re connected to this vast universe. But it’s not just about the physical stuff we can see and touch. It goes way beyond, delving into the realm of consciousness, the dual nature of reality, and how to holistically heal our body, mind, and soul. Each episode delves into the complex web of our existence, and even if you’re not a science geek, you’ll love it. The host, Randy Veitenheimer makes even the most complicated ideas super easy to grasp.
As I said, I’ve just been through the loss of a close loved one, so this exploration into the universe is helping me remember that there’s more to life than meets the eye.
Tantrik Micro Meditation Practices
Christopher Hareesh Wallis leads us through micro-meditations that can help center you quickly in the world we are living in. I was sold after the first episode where he introduced a simple breathing meditation that you could add ‘layers’ to if you needed more help focusing on the meditation.
His reasoning behind why we should do micro meditations throughout the day rather than just one meditation in the morning or evening made so much sense to me, probably because I’m very much needing to find a balance between my everyday life and the spiritual quietness of meditation.
Channeling: A Bridge To The Beyond
Again, I lost someone close to me so that idea of being able to channel spirits is appealing.
Some of the episodes are a little weird. But there was talk of Shamanism in one episode, which is something I’ve never heard of before, and that led me to some exciting discoveries about myself and a new interest that I’m pursuing, so I’m grateful for the series on that level.
Plus, channeling is just an interesting topic.
The series has left me with a lot of questions after each episode, such as ‘Why does someone channeling spirit need to change their voice to such a weird tone?’, but it’s all about learning new things and expanding my awareness.
The Essential Lectures Of Alan Watts
I’m also watching an Allan Watts series that includes some of his popular lectures. In fact, the first thing I watched on Gaia was his talk about death, which gave me a way out of my on-repeat thoughts and allowed me to see things a little differently.
If Gaia Interests You, Then You Will Like It
I can say that if you are interested in it, then you will like it. If you are not interested in it, then you probably won’t.
It’s that simple.
If you are on the fence, it’s worth giving a try (they have a 7-day free trial) if you are seeking for something new and thought-provoking in the realm of spirituality and self-discovery. Even if you don’t end up liking it, you might still learn something valuable or gain some new insights along the way.
