We started doing online yoga classes for beginners about 2 years ago. What we found was a ton of high-quality practices! Whether you want to practice Vinyasa, restorative, or Yin yoga – there is a class to help you get started.
We started doing online yoga classes because every local class we tried was either too crowded, woo-woo, or advanced for us. We wanted to learn the fundamentals of yoga and get better before stepping into a studio.
What To Look For in Online Yoga Classes
- High-quality videos
- Attention to the basics (breathing, core activation, etc)
- Attention to proper form
- Practices varying in time
We’ve found that having a mix of 10-60 minute classes help us stay consistent.
Part of yoga is finding your practice and routine daily. There are so many distractions and noises in the world, your online yoga class should be a time to shift your focus inward.
Favorite Online Yoga Classes for Beginners
3 Week Yoga Retreat
Our first online yoga classes for beginners was the 3 Week Yoga Retreat. The 30 minute routines teach you the basics of yoga, and each week they get a little more challenging.
The classes are shot in a white studio and looks very similar to the picture above. Each workout has a trainer leading the practice along with 2 other “students” who show modifications.
Each week is taught by a new trainer. Our favorite out of the 4 is Yvtas Baskauskas. He teaches in week 1.
The online yoga classes started as a streaming service, but they are also now available on DVD.
Each week includes a class focused on:
- Core Strengthening
- Flow or Vinyasa yoga
Why we love it:
- It’s so simple to follow
- 10-30 minute routines
- designed specifically for beginners
- allows you to grow in your practice each week
- also includes a full meal plan!
Beachbody Yoga Studio
Our next step in our yoga classes was the Beachbody Yoga Studio. It was included with our membership since we chose to stream the 3 Week Yoga Retreat.
The yoga studio includes different classes ranging from beginner to advanced.
Many of the routines are taught in the same white studio by the same instructors as the Retreat; however, there is more variety offered.
Online yoga classes include:
- Cardio & Flow
- Pre- and Postnatal Yoga
My Yoga Works
The last option for online yoga classes for beginners that we love is My Yoga Works.
Their online studio has so many great yoga classes to choose from!
Yvtas Baskauskas (the instructor we love from 3 Week Yoga Retreat) has 74+ classes on there as well!!
Choosing the Right Online Yoga Classes
If you’re looking for strictly yoga workouts, My Yoga Works has the most to choose from!
If you prefer to mix in yoga with other workouts (like cardio, weight training, etc), we love Beachbody on Demand. It includes over 700+ workouts so you’re never bored!
If you’re struggling to find a routine and are a beginner, the 3 Week Yoga Retreat & its meal plan are the perfect step-by-step guide.
