While I’m more than happy to pay for yoga (it’s hard to find a more lovely community of people to support), I haven’t found a studio in Ann Arbor that I’ve totally jived with yet, so I’ve been primarily practicing at home. Luckily, I’m a certified yoga teacher so I’m able to lead myself through a sequence, but for days when I’m feeling like I need a little guidance, I turn to Yoga International.
Yoga International is run by the Himalayan Institute, which is “a non-profit, international organization dedicated to serving humanity through educational, spiritual, and humanitarian programs” (as quoted from their website). They’re a leader in the field of yoga, meditation, and spirituality, and they offer tons of FREE classes online—not to mention countless articles, digital courses, products, and a whole host of other wonderful offerings. In short, take classes from expert teacher for free (although I do opt for the $5 monthly membership—because why not?).
You can check out their extensive listing of online classes here, and below are a few links to practices that I’ve personally enjoyed recently:
Stretch and Breathe with Rolf Sovik
Twist and Flow with Kathryn Heagberg
Peak Pose: Eka Pada Rajakapotasana with Jen Stout
Build Ojas with Gentle Movement with Ginny Mazzei
Wow – what a great site! Thanks for the tip!! I just did a 15 minute video and the teacher was amazing.
Glad you like it! The teachers are indeed amazing and I love all the different ways you can filter classes. Such a huge library to choose from too. Enjoy!
Good looking out! I live in a place where there are only about 2 yoga classes a week that are feasible to me, but I try to practice at home every day. Thanks for sharing!
Awesome Martha, YI is such a great yoga resource, I’m happy to share it!
