Do you love yoga? I do.
Practicing yoga grounds my roots, centers my soul and steadies my heart.
Yoga is my way to let go of the barriers holding me down, reconnect with my true intentions and find space and openness for more love, hope, harmony.
Yoga is my anchor. Yoga is part of my day. Part of me.
My practices vary…
From community classes where I practice with other beautiful souls and feel moved by our collective breath,
To quick morning practices where I welcome the new day and ground myself in mindfulness and compassion,
To the online world where I rely on videos and podcasts to guide and inspire me.
My Yoga Online is one of the virtual communities where I go to connect and practice yoga. Created seven years ago My Yoga Online had one mission – to share the power of yoga with others. Fast forward and today they stream hundreds of beautiful videos, and provide yogis around the world with resources, articles, tools and space to connect with their practice.
My Yoga Online is a beautiful playground for people looking to explore and tap into their total well-being. It’s a space to learn, expand and embrace. Their huge video library offers practically everything you could need in regards to health, wellness, yoga – what I like best is their informational videos where you can learn more about the history and practice of yoga. It’s not just a place to watch videos, it’s a community and a resource.
I will admit that I’ve used my Premium Membership primarily for the videos – I love the Qi Gong, meditation, power yoga and relaxation videos the best! I’ve never tried Qi Gong before and was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I picked it up through the video – the instructor was great and after just ten minutes it felt natural to me.
The nice thing about My Yoga Online is that you can practice whenever and wherever you want. While I normally prefer community classes at my local studio, they don’t always fit into my schedule and moving through a practice with an instructor via video is pretty good too. Especially since you can pause and rewind (some challenging poses have me rewinding more than once!). Practicing with videos at home is also nice for those without yoga studios nearby, for newbies that want to learn a bit before going to a class (NOT necessary, but I understand) and for those that can’t necessarily afford yoga classes.
I am definitely someone that can easily come up with sequences and flows – it’s natural for me to move from Downward Dog to Warrior 1 then into Crescent Lunge and then floating into Warrior 3 – but sometimes I don’t want to be in charge. I want to be led through an opening, engaging sequence and My Yoga Online has so many classes to choose from I can’t see myself ever getting bored.
