Each year I go through fitness phases, depending on the season.
Living in Michigan, during some season I am restricted on what I can and can’t do when working out.
In the summer, when the weather is warm, I want to enjoy it, but also stick to my fitness. I LOVE going for walks around the neighborhood with my toddler and so does he. But somedays that can get boring, and I just need something in the morning before he wakes up.
There is just nothing like yoga in the summertime.
I have been practicing yoga for many years now. It is so calming and relaxing, no matter what time of day I do it.
I also enjoy a lot of variety when it comes to my workouts and yoga. With yoga being so big, it can be hard to find quality workouts without having to pay the price.
I am a homebody and am not much for group classes. Going anywhere to get my yoga fix is out of the question.
Recently I discovered the world of yoga on Youtube, and I am so glad I did.
Who would’ve thought there was a whole yoga world on youtube.
I always thought youtube was music videos and how to videos, but it has become even bigger than that!
From the many channels I have done, here is a collection of my 10 favorite channels to get my yoga fix.
10 Awesome Yoga Youtube Channels
If you have ever typed yoga into youtube, you will see that Adriene is the queen of the youtube yoga community.
And if you have ever watched one of her videos, you can see why.
She has a great personality and makes you feel like you are doing yoga with a friend. Its almost like she is right there with you 1 on 1 in your house, or where ever you or watching the video from.
I completed her TRUE 30-day yoga challenge, and it is honestly the best one I have done to date. I actually feel stronger and felt I learned something. It is not the same thing over and over, she dives deep into the practice, in all different areas, and keeps you interested. I highly recommend checking it out.
Allie – The Journey Junkie is the first yoga channel I started following on youtube.
I started with her 7 day Yoga Boot Camp videos, and have been hooked ever since.
Allie has an awesome personality, always so positive, and cheerful.
Her content isn’t for light-hearted. Her practices are challenging, which is what I love most. If you love a challenge, get out Allie!
Leslie Fightmaster (Yes that’s her real name) is great for more advanced yogis.
Lesley videos are 45 minutes to an hour long.
Her voice-overs are well-paced (there’s no music), and she offers all sorts of helpful tips throughout regarding modifications and prop usage.
doyouyoga is more than a youtube channel, they also have a whole website doyouyoga.com.
The youtube channel has a collection of their free practices that you can also find on their site.
Their practice is geared more toward beginners. If you have no idea where to start with Yoga, their 30-day beginner yoga challenge is a great place to start.
This channel is beautiful! It is run by married couple Juiliana and Mark.
They are traveling the world while filming their yoga practice with different amazing sceneries.
It’s like getting your practice in while traveling the world. They share inspirational affirmations, vegan food recipes, travel tips and so much more.
Badyogi is a more laid back channel.
Erin Motz is relaxed and makes you feel like yoga can be for anyone.
You don’t have to be perfect with any pose. Its a breath of fresh air, that its more relaxed (how can yoga get any more relaxed?). All that matters is you showed up and are trying!
This channel has everything.
PsycheTruth has videos on yoga, nutrition, massage, fitness, weight loss, psychology, and happiness.
They post a new video just about every day.
Kassandra specializes in Yin Yoga and Vinyasa flows.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time.
This is a great channel for beginners, and for someone who wants a calm slow-flow, to relax or recover.
BrettLarkinYoga is a combination of great yoga flow sequences and great tutorials.
Brett is fun and has a great personality to practice with.
I personally use this channel for the tutorial on the splits. I have been trying to master the pose. She makes it very educational to make sure you don’t injure yourself while making it fun at the same time.
This channel has a variety of different yoga instructors along with different yoga practices.
A majority of the videos are made for people who suffer from pain. Along with a lot of Beginner flow videos.
I use this channel to help with my lower back pains that I have suffered from since I gave birth to my son.
