Top Online Resources and Inspirational Teachers
Now we know that not everyone can get to a yoga class or finds a yoga studio that they are automatically in love with. We also know that yoga, or fitness in general, requires a financial investment that may not always be in everyone’s budget. With that said, we have compiled a list of our favorite online resources and yoga classes, as well as a list of inspirational teachers.
Yoga with Adriene- http://yogawithadriene.com/
Adriene is oftentimes playful and humorous, inspiring people of all shapes, sizes, and personalities to connect with their bodies on a daily basis with free yoga videos. Her videos are well made and easy to follow, and she oftentimes incorporates the inspiration behind each yoga video.
With Gaia online, you can practice yoga anywhere and anytime. These videos stream, so you can select the style, teacher, level, length, and focus of the practice- and go! Some of our favorite teachers are on here from Matt Giordano, Tara Lee, Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Rod Stryker, Leslie Kaminoff, Kathryn Budig, and Amy Ippoliti.
Yoga International- https://yogainternational.com/
Yoga International is an amazing resource, with online resources, articles, and vidoes. They aim to nurture the mind, body, and spirit with their content. For those wanting to deepen their practice, they also have workshops and teachings that will leave you not only inspired, but feeling connected to a deep inner wisdom, from teachers like Pandit Rajmani Tigunait and Swami Rama.
Yoga Glo- https://www.yogaglo.com/
Yoga Glo is a fantastic resource for those wanting to start a practice at home, for the cost of one studio class in person per month. They also offer classes from some of our favorite teachers, such as, Amy Ippoliti, Elena Brower, Jason Crandell, Kathryn Budig, Rod Stryker, Seane Corn, Taylor Harkness, and Tiffany Cruikshank.
Why do we recommend the teachers that we do? They offer a range of expertise, different styles of practices, different ages, different genders, and offer, in our opinion, a beautiful example of what yoga looks like when it is taken off the mat and lived in the world- both inspiring others and being responsible and accountable to the values of yoga. That said, here are some people that we are inspired by and links to find out more about them:
