Hi there, vacationist! Miss your yoga class? Here are five sites that present great free yoga videos! If you are enjoying some chilltime at home or mökki (the Finnish summer house), or maybe you are exploring and discovering new places, you can find a top-notch yoga instructor online and enjoy a guided yoga practice for whatever you may need or feel like right now. Here are my favourites! Do you know other great ones? Share with us!
I am in love with Adriene. Oh well, maybe everyone loves Adriene: her online community has millions of subscribers and Yoga with Adriene has been noted to be the most searched workout on Google. Her Youtube channel has heaps of great yoga classes, from ‘Rose Yoga – Heart Opening Flow’ to ‘Yoga for Risk Takers’. I have tried a variety of different classes and I have always felt great after each class, for whatever I needed that moment. I feel so grateful for these classes that I want to share the love. Have you tried YWA yet?
I discovered Youtube yoga with this video, when one of my best friends shared this beautiful video with me when I was expecting my son. The gentle practice always makes me feel very happy, calm and grounded. I can definitely recommend it to everyone (pregnant or not!). I did this practice repeatedly and I have heard someone much-smarter-than-me say that it is advisable to do the exact same yoga practice repeatedly, to get the best out of the practice. What do you think?
Lululemon, the apparel retailer/ globally known trendsetter, presents yoga videos with top-notch yoga instructors. The instructors are Lululemon ambassadors and yoga influencers, doers and makers. You can find videos that are suitable for all levels as well as some more challenging power yoga classes. The classes focus 100% on the practice rather than the ambience.
If you are not new to yoga, you will enjoy Meri Mort’s ‘Yoga of Freedom’, a yoga video that may serve better as inspiration than an actual class, since it is without instructions. It makes you want to dance in and with the rain and enjoy a playful yoga practice. The Helsinki-based yogini encourages her followers to BREATHE, BE BRAVE AND CREATE.
Boho Beautiful offers lots of content around yoga as well as fitness, vegan food, and guided meditations. I like Juliana’s yin yoga videos, especially after a workout such as running. The video also serves as a cheap & environmentally friendly way to travel to an exotic beach for 30 minutes…
