Last year, I was so good about doing yoga regularly. I practiced yoga about 3 times a week for about 6 months … and then I stopped. I mean, I did yoga here and there, but I was just so busy with my final year of graduate school that yoga sadly took a back seat. I have resolved to try and incorporate yoga into my weekly routine again and to practice at least once a week. Even if just for 10 minutes.
As such, I was thrilled when I learned about The Yoga Collective and their fantastic array of online yoga videos! Although I love going to yoga studios, sometimes time (and money) issues can make this difficult. Being able to do yoga at home makes it much more realistic for me to practice yoga on a regular basis.
What is it like to take a Yoga Collective class?
The cool thing about The Yoga Collective is that there actually is a physical studio in Venice Beach, CA, where they shoot their yoga videos. I like that each video is shot in the studio because you really feel as if you are getting the full yoga studio experience from an online yoga class; but from home! When you play a yoga video, it starts with the instructor introducing themselves and explaining each of the poses in an easy to understand fashion. I have to say that so far, Shayna Hiller, is my favorite instructor because I think her voice is incredibly soothing and that she explains the poses and eases you into transitions extremely well. Her ‘Birds of a Feather Twist Together‘ class was fantastic and I highly recommend it.
But what if I’ve never done yoga before?
That is totally fine! The Yoga Collective has options for you to choose the level, duration, teacher, style and focus of the yoga class. There are lots of options for beginners and more advanced users alike. There is even a whole page dedicated to helping you perfect the moves called free yoga poses. This page has tons of videos of different yoga poses to help walk you through them and to make sure your form is correct (so important in yoga).
If you are a beginner, it is definitely helpful to get private instruction and/or one on one help from a yoga instruction but to be honest, 95% of all the yoga I have done has been at home. It is just so much more convenient.
