Are you missing another class in your favorite yoga studio? I think many of us is struggling with this issue, lack of time and schedules that are hard to reconcile with work, meals and personal life. My guess is that the perfect time for yoga for some of us would be at 5 am or very late at night.
This is why I have become very accustomed to working yoga into my own schedule, in the comfort of my own home. For those of you who feel confortable to practice yoga without any guide – that's great for you! For those who don’t feel comfortable enough to practice yoga on your own without any instructions, you might find those youtube channels very interesting and helpful to maintain your daily yoga routine.
Below, I complied a list of my favorite instructional yoga channels that are free and accessible for everyone! I truly hope that they’ll help you grow in your practice, just as they helped me.
1. Yoga with Kassandra
You’ll find here a vide range of free videos with great instructions, nice calm voice and toned music in the background. Personally I love all the videos focused on stretch and flexibility. If you wish your practice to be less dynamic and more relaxing accompanying by a gentle flow you’ll fall in love with those yoga classes!
2. Five Parks Yoga
Very creative and various yoga videos held in a beautiful tropical surrounding. Here you’ll find lots of different styles of yoga, different length and classes focused on different postures or body parts. I personally love all the videos focused on strength, arms, core and shoulders. If you’re into dynamic and more challenging yoga that's the channel for you!
3. Max Czenszak Ashtanga Yoga
You won’t find plenty videos here but there is this one unique class that I adore - Ashtanga Yoga sequence led by Max in the studio together with the whole group. If you’re into Ashtanga Vinyasa practice and you know the entire sequence this might be great guide through the practice especially considering the breath. This flow is very dynamic, intense and is operated only by asanas names that’s why it might be a bit tricky for the beginners and those of you who have no clue about the Ashtanga Yoga Flow.
4. Ali Kamenova Interval Yoga
Strength is a key focus of Ali’s Interval Yoga. She connects fitness moves with Yoga Flow and for those of you who would like to add some exercises within your yoga routine that might be a great solution. This channel is perfect for those more intermediate as well as the beginners; you'll find there list of uploaded videos seem not to end at all!
Personally this channel not only is a great source of amazing videos but also a great source of inspiration of life, yoga, move and body. I recommend it to anyone if not for the practice then for encouragement, insight, vision or motivation to further practice.
6. Yoga by Candace
The last one - Yoga by Candace channel offers simple and calming yoga sequences narrated with a soft, soothing voice. This channel has wide selection of full yoga routines in the 15 to 30-minute range, and also offers postures demonstrations and sequences for common mental health issues such as anxiety or sleeplessness.
I truly hope you'll enjoy them all. The most important is to find your own favourite channel and don't stop your yoga routine. Practice can be really amazing at some corner at your home as well! I encourage you to try, find your own way and your own practice and experience the amazing influence of yoga in your everyday life.
