Can’t get to your yoga class? No worries; give online sessions a chance as more and more yoga teachers put their routines online. Most hide behind a paywall but look carefully and there are great free ones. One such site is Do Yoga With Me
; it offers full classes, tutorials, breathing techniques, meditation practices and prenatal classes. The videos feature different styles including Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Kundalini and Ashtanga. Do Yoga With Me survives on a volunteer subscription and ‘pay-what-you-can’ request for donations.
In 2006, Vancouver-based yoga instructor, David Procyshyn
, began videotaping his own classes to post online. There was a lot to learn in those first couple of years, and a lot of camera equipment to acquire. But before long the video library was growing fast, and other yoga instructors and partners began to get involved. Many years, and two website upgrades later, DoYogaWithMe has grown from a handful of visitors per month to many thousands, and people all over the planet are enjoying the benefits of their yoga. Roll out your yoga mat, login online and take a deep breath. Namaste!
