In the past couple weeks I have a quite a few questions on how to begin a yoga practice or where they could try yoga without having to go to an actual class.
As a Yoga Instructor I plan most/all of my "sessions" but love the class experience of bonding with other "yogi" enthusiasts while posing our way through practice
....schedules being what they are do not allow actual class time for me so I tap into these resources for a "class" experience
Here are my picks for getting your yoga on without going to a class!
The classes range from very beginner to very advanced and they have specialty classes for runners, pregnancy, etc. I have loved every single one of their classes that I have taken.
Go here to register and begin a 15 day free trial. The cost is $18/month thereafter.
With YogaDownload you have options:
1. Buy Classes ala Carte
2. Purchase a Subscription Membership
3. Try out the free classes
4. You also have the option of choosing video, audio (pose guides are included)
I enjoyed the classes I tried from here. They offer quite a few types of yoga, so it was fun to try out new and different practices from my own.
This is a great resource for any type of "Yogi", I frequent this site to make sure I am doing my poses correctly and to see progression steps for difficult poses. They do have some video but I think the longest one is 35 minutes.
4. Yoga Podcasts
Podcasts are more for the "experienced" yogi. Since podcasts are audio classes it is necessary to know the poses to be able to follow along. So if you are in a bind with no computer, no nothing, just your ipod or iphone, these podcasts can help you. (these are my personal podcasts, of which I like, I am not saying you have to like them too)
Yes this is my youtube channel(shameless plug) and yes I am working on my own yoga videos/workout videos. So please subscribe and stay tuned, it is going to be lots o' fun!
I hope this list helps you out as you begin your Yoga adventure. If you have any furthur questions, please comment below!
