yoga at home

I’ve been a fan of yoga for years. I took my first yoga class in college at a donation-based power yoga studio in Santa Monica. After college, I took classes that came with my gym membership, and attended free classes at Lululemon on the weekends. Though I’ve practiced many kinds of yoga in many kinds of environments, I didn’t really fall in love with it until we moved to Austin, where I learned that hot yoga helped me cope with the oppressive Texas summer heat.

In Texas, yoga was easy to get to since I could walk there from my apartment. But now that I’m back in California, my only close and cost-effective option is Lululemon—and they only have classes in my local store on Saturday mornings when I’m sleeping in.

Personally, I love the idea of doing yoga in my own space, on my own time. I’m much more likely to work out when I can fit it into my own schedule rather than when I have to make it to a pre-determined class time. That’s why I’m a big fan of My Yoga Online. Have you heard of it?

My Yoga Online is a website that streams hundreds of high-definition yoga videos right to your computer. Their premium, on demand subscription service provides unlimited online access to yoga instruction so that you can stay home in your cozies and simply exercise in your living room. My favorite thing about it is how many choices they give their members, including the length of the workout, the level of intensity and even the teacher and the studio that it comes from.

In addition to having unlimited access to their yoga videos, members can create a wellness diary, keep track of wellness goals, upload images, have discussions with other members, and ask questions to experts—something I know I tend to need to do when I’m in a yoga class and unsure of how a pose is correctly done!

As my newest advertiser, they’ve opted to gift every one of you Thoughts by Natalie readers with two weeks of unlimited classes on their website! How great is that? Visit www.myyogaonline.com/m/bloggers to get your two week trial, and of course let me know what you think of it once you’ve tried it!

Would you ever do at-home yoga classes? Why or why not?

    Oh, awesome!! This is so cool. I can’t wait to start my free trial :) It can be hard to get to the yoga studio this time of year because of all the holiday stuff plus working overtime to afford the holiday stuff. My studio is a donation-based place near my office – such a great model for a yoga studio.
