I love to watch Youtube yoga channels! A couple of years ago, when I first started practicing yoga, I used to follow 15-30 minute yoga videos almost every day. This helped me to establish a regular practice and learn basic postures before I even went to a yoga studio for the first time. Even now, after I became a yoga teacher, I like to follow yoga routines on Youtube for inspiration.
While starting a yoga practice in a real yoga studio or in a private class might be considered the best, this way is not accessible to everyone. There might be no yoga classes that fit your schedule in the area where you live, maybe paying for classes is not possible for you, or maybe you just feel shy to go to the studio without having any clue what to expect there. I strongly believe that it doesn’t matter that much how you start doing yoga, be it with a private yoga teacher, in a group class at a studio or at home with Youtube. Most important is to just start and Youtube yoga videos are one of the easiest, most accessible and FREE ways to start doing yoga.
Here are 5 of my favorite Youtube channels to help yoga beginners on their journey.
5 Awesome Youtube Yoga Channels For Total Beginners
1. Yoga with Adrienne
Yoga with Adrienne has almost 6 million subscribers and is without a doubt the most successful yoga channel on Youtube. Adrienne has filmed lots of yoga videos varying in lengths and topics and keeps uploading consistently. She has done a few 30 days of yoga challenges which I find great for beginners to start practicing yoga regularly. Check out 30 days of Yoga, HOME – a 30 day yoga journey, and TRUE – 30 Day Yoga Journey. Or try some videos from the playlist yoga for beginners with Adrienne.
2. Bad Yogi Yoga
I love how honest Erin is about her non-traditional yoga lifestyle. As she says about herself:” I’m the carnivorous, red wine and French cheese-loving type, and my aim is to keep my classes fun and accessible.” Beginners, check out 100 Yoga Poses playlist to learn the correct alignment for most popular yoga poses.
3. Fighmaster Yoga
Lesley Fightmaster is one of my favorite yoga teachers on Youtube. She has tons of videos on different topics and also has 30 Day Yoga Challange for beginners. She has done many Ashtanga yoga videos, so if you are interested in this style of yoga, I recommend you to start with 30 Minute Ashtanga Intro classes.
4. Yoga with Kassandra
Yoga with Kassandra is my place go-to channel for Yin yoga. Yin Yoga can be a great way to begin a yoga practice for beginners because the poses are held for a long period of time in this style of yoga. It teaches you to listen to your body and relax your mind. Kassandra also has other videos in a more flowy Vinyasa style that you can find in a playlist for beginners.
With more than 200 videos in Beginner Yoga Classes-Beginners Start Here! playlist, you will find enough videos to start your yoga journey. Brett has also done many videos about Kundalini Yoga.
