I would like to introduce (or perhaps reacquaint) you with a really great website, YogaVibes.com.
I have a confession to make. I do not make it to yoga class every week. I’m not counting the classes that I teach. I am talking about a yoga class for me, where I get to be the student, where someone tells me what to do for an hour and a half!
I do practice at home, though, and I really do love my home practice. I find the intuitive nature of guiding myself through an asana sequence that my body asks of me to be so much fun and creative and quite special. But honestly, it isn’t always enough. It is sometimes difficult for me to stay motivated and I tend to fall into the trap of complacency in my practice. In other words, I don’t challenge myself and I get bored.
There’s just something about the energy of going to a yoga class
But how am I to get to class with 2 young children, a teaching schedule, a working/schooling husband and one car between us? It’s not easy that’s for sure (YogaVibes to the rescue!).
What I love most about YogaVibes.com is that they offer online yoga classes with amazing and accomplished teachers in a real class environment. They also have streaming DVD’s and shorter (free) intructional “vignettes” but it is being able to experience teachers whom I’ve admired from afar, like Sadie Nardini and Kathryn Budig (and Kino MacGregor, Ricky Tran, Rolf Gates – the list goes on and on), in a real yoga studio teaching a real class to a group of real people that I truly appreciate. It’s like, the real thing, y’all!
They have something for EVERYONE
YogaVibes.com acknowledges that people come to yoga practice for a variety of reasons and that these reasons are as unique as the individuals. There is a whole section for people brand new to yoga (Beginner Vibe). They have Kundalini Yoga classes, Vinyasa, Gentle, Yoga for Athletes and even Kids Yoga classes available on the site. YogaVibes.com offers support through videos and their blog, Community Vibe, as well as Daily Vibe emails. There is also a section on the YogaVibes site called Recovery Vibe, for those recovering from addiction, injury or illness and yoga classes for cancer survivors.
More YogaVibes.com features
Pricing for classes is extremely affordable and you have a few options. You can pay just $10 for a single class with access to that class for 14 days. Or you can pay $20 per month for up to 5 classes with unlimited use of those classes. Or for $25 per month you have unlimited access.
Not only can you browse the site by Paid Videos, Free Vignettes, Streaming DVD’s, or New To Yoga but you can also search based on Style, Instructor, Location, Class Length, and Difficulty. It’s pretty darn cool and super easy to use.
