I’ve always wanted to try yoga, so I’ve put together a list of the best yoga Youtube channels for beginners.
What I have learned on my continuous journey of making self-care a priority is to push myself to try new things. Doing this helps me gain more confidence and find new ways of taking better care of myself. Of course, you will also discover things you don’t enjoy, but this is a good thing. It all means you are growing, getting to know yourself better, and ultimately trying to evolve and become a happier, healthier you.
As someone who has struggled with anxiety, I’m always in search of relaxation exercises to help calm and ease my mind. Yoga has always been one that I have wanted to try, but I had always pushed it aside because it seemed too complicated. I heard and read about the many mind-body benefits of yoga, and was finally inspired (and courageous enough!) to give it a try.
I had NO IDEA where to start or what I was doing. So, I decided to do a bit of research online and was so pleased to find some great yoga YouTube channels for beginners. I thought, since these helped me, they may also help some of you out there.
Why I love online yoga channels?
- You don’t need to leave the comfort of your own home. Sometimes circumstances make it difficult to leave the house to attend a class.
- You can do it at any time of the day. You can pull up a video at a time of day that works best for you.
- If you’re feeling insecure about trying something new, starting in the privacy of your home can seem less intimidating and help ease you into giving it a try!
- There are so many incredibly informative channels out there, with different instructors and styles of teaching, so you can take the time to find the one that suits you best.
- You can connect with the online community. Each channel has a yoga community that you can connect with in the comments section of each video. You can gain support and encouragement from these communities, and it helps to know others are on the same yoga journey with you.
- FREE, need I say more? 🙂
