Yoga videos are a great way to start practicing yoga at home. Ten years ago, yoga videos were one-off recorded videos by people like Geri Halliwell. Who wants to practice using that same video again and again?
Nowadays there are hundreds of yoga videos on YouTube with dedicated channels to keep your home yoga routine fresh and interesting. You could easily practice a different yoga video every day for a whole year without having an overlap, thanks to the internet.
We’ve picked a selection of YouTube yogis who have created some of the best yoga videos online. All of their videos are good, so don’t feel like the videos featured here are the only ones available. Click on their channels and you’ll discover more.
