Time to set intentions to practice yoga at home!
With a lot of free online yoga videos from qualified teachers available on YouTube, the tricky part is narrowing down which yogi will be your go-to. But don’t worry, we did find a list of the best YouTube yoga instructor!
Looking to begin or revive an at-home practice?
We’ve rounded eight of the best yoga instructor on YouTube to help you find your favorite and get started!
1. Adriene Mishler of ‘Yoga with Adriene’
Adriene Mishler has been sharing her love of yoga on YouTube and giving fans flows of yoga that can help combat health issues such as acid reflux and neck pain. Moreover, Mishler’s unpretentious style of teaching makes you feel like you’re doing yoga with a friend. Her videos also come in a variety of lengths, suiting beginner and experienced yogis alike.
Her dog Benji often makes a cameo in her classes, which only makes the videos feel more comforting.
2. Briohny Smyth of ‘Yoga with Briohny’
You might recognize Briohny Smyth from Alo Yoga’s YouTube videos, but about seven months ago she started posting videos to her own channel. She offers a variety of at-home workouts, often including tips for performing some of the more complicated poses.
3. Sarah Wesley of ‘Return to Kemet’
Feel like trying something a little different? It could be worth giving ‘Kemetic yoga’ a go—and Sarah Wesley of Return to Kemet is the best yoga instructor to master this style on youtube.
What is Kemetic yoga, you ask? Kemetic yoga is a system originating from Ancient Egypt (or ‘Sami Tawi’) that places an even greater emphasis on the breath, spine, and lungs and how they relate to human consciousness.
When you get into it, it’s deeply, deeply calming, and Sarah Wesley’s videos are utterly hypnotic.
4. Tara Stiles of Stråla Yoga
With a back catalog of 10 years-worth of yoga videos, you’ll have plenty of material to work on when it comes to Tara Stiles’ YouTube channel.
Offering a wide range of sessions and styles of yoga, Stiles’ channel is particularly notable for her playlist of prenatal yoga routines. She also has a special set of videos dedicated to mothers with little children and how to get them involved in their practice.
When you need a quick flow to relax, Tara’s got you covered.
5. Sarah Beth of Sarah Beth Yoga
When you watch Sara Beth’s yoga videos, you’ll feel like you’re right in the studio with your favorite instructor. She’s been uploading yoga flows since 2012, releasing both relaxing sessions as well as strength classes.
6. Rina Desphande of ‘Yoga Journal’
Rina Deshpande has over 15 years of experience in practicing and sharing the benefits of yoga across the world. A frequent contributor to the Yoga Journal YouTube channel, Deshpande’s educational videos will take your practice far beyond the mat and into the realm of true yoga and cultural appreciation.
These include understanding exactly how to say ‘namaste’ correctly and respectfully, when it’s actually inappropriate to use the word, and what ‘Anjali mudra’ (the act of putting the hands together at the heart center) really signifies.
7. Sjana Elise
Australian yogi Sjana Elise Earp may already be a favorite amongst those who use Kayla Itsines’ SWEAT app, but she also has a great YouTube channel packed with yoga and guided meditation videos. Earp’s videos are particularly great for those who favor longer, more energetic flows.
As challenging as some of the videos are, Earp’s sunny attitude and genuine encouragement really help you feel uplifted and excited to try your best.
8. Kassandra Reinhardt Of ‘Yoga With Kassandra’
Her soothing Yin yoga sessions are widely considered to be some of the best on the Internet. Her Yin playlist includes a dedicated hip-opening stretch practice, a video to target upper back knots, and even one specially designed for runners, among many others.
For those who’re unfamiliar, Yin yoga is a slow-paced, restorative form of yoga. It gently applies stress to the connective tissues in the body with the intention of increasing circulation and improving flexibility. Most yogis hold the poses for anywhere from 45 seconds to two minutes, while advanced yogis may stay for even longer.
