The Yoga Collective (and a Giveaway for Online Yoga Videos)

Do you practice yoga at home?

Developing a personal practice is a wonderful way to deepen your experience of yoga. And, since most of us have busy schedules that don't always allow for classes at the studio, practicing at home is a great way to get more consistent on your mat.

Note: see below for a chance to win access to an amazing library of yoga videos online at The Yoga Collective!

One great resource for yoga classes at home is The Yoga Collective. Their video library features a variety of yoga styles, levels of experience, and lengths of time. What I love is that you can search the website based on what you're looking for... so if you want a gentle yin practice that's only 30 minutes long and is great for beginners, it's easy to find that video.

I shared access to The Yoga Collective's online yoga classes with Elizabeth from the Sponsored Yogis team. Here were her reflections on using the site.

Being a stay at home mom with 2 children, active within my community, sports, husband, family, and garden I don't always get the opportunity to get to a yoga studio and find my balance. Most days I'm lucky if I brushed my teeth! 

I LOVE that I can go to while my baby girl sleeps or in between school/dinner/baseball and sneak in 30 minutes here or there. Sometimes it's less than 10 minutes, and I am so grateful for those few minutes regardless of how long my practice is.

The website is so convenient and the classes are great! So many varieties and the instructors are great. I can just hit play and close my eyes and envision I am in the studio.

One suggestion I'd like to make is I'd like to see longer morning classes and I'd really like to see a before bedtime class.

I am soo grateful for this website and I highly recommend it to all my friends. Thank you so much for taking the time to film the videos and share the love!

  1. Get Up, Stand Up -- I love that there's a standing pose only class! I haaaaate non-standing poses, which tend to be hard on my shoulders and wrists, in both my yoga and barre classes. It's nice to have a practice where I wouldn't have to worry about it!
