10 Yoga YouTube Channels That'll Take Your Practice To The Next Level
If you've been bitten by the yoga bug, then you probably hate the thought of going a single day without rolling out your mat, even if it's just for a few minutes. And while it would be ideal to hit up your favorite local studio to get in a nourishing yoga flow every single day, the reality is there's usually not enough time for that. TBH, your wallet probably gets pretty pissed at times, too, which is why having a few reliable yoga YouTube channels bookmarked on your laptop is one of the best ways to keep up with your practice.
Seriously guys, there are tons of free classes, tutorials, and informative videos on all things yoga, all across the board, when you browse the magical online land that is YouTube. From five-minute, on-the-go flows, to extensive, blissful meditation sessions, YouTube yogis truly have your best interests at heart when it comes to guiding you toward feeling totally kick*ss in your mind, body, and spirit.
The next time you don't have enough hours in the day to make it to the yoga studio, or even when you simply want to save a few dollars, check out these 10 YouTube yoga channels that are truly OM-mazing.
1. Yoga With Adriene
Yoga With Adriene honestly dominates the YouTube yoga world, people. This chick literally shows up first on every online yoga search, and with good reason: Adriene freaking rocks.
Whether you're looking for some "cozy yoga," like in the above video, or literally anything else your little yogi heart desires, Adriene's got you covered, girl.
2. Bad Yogi
The Bad Yogi is basically here to tell you, just because you're a peaceful and tranquil yogi, does not mean you need to have "perfect" poses, a "perfect" body, or really, that you need to be "perfect" in any way, shape, or form.
This channel gives you all the tutorials you could dream of, on and off the mat, for the "baddest" yogi out there.
3. Faith Hunter
Faith Hunter calls herself a "spiritually fly" yogi, who offers yoga, meditation, inspiring chats, and all things lifestyle (think: hair, beauty, dogs, travel and more) in her videos.
Hit up Faith's channel if you're ready to spread your wings and fly through a totally blissful practice.
4. Ekhart Yoga
This channel is primarily led by Esther Ekhart, an internationally renowned yoga teacher, but oftentimes, she's joined by a number of other world-class instructors to make her content that much better. Ekhart's videos offer almost anything you can think of in the yoga realm, and while some will take just a few minutes out of your day, other videos can be as long as an entire hour.
