For the past three years my yoga practice has consisted of my DVD collection and the occasional class while vacationing.  After moving to our small town from Wasilla I missed my regular yoga classes, but I gradually learned to adore Shiva Rea. However,  when I could recite her cues on every DVD , word for word, I realized it was time for a change.

Coincidentally, right about that time my dear Texan friend, Bonnie, recommended Yogaglo.

Yogaglo is a subscription website that offers over one thousand yoga classes from a variety of instructors and in a wide range of styles and levels.  You can try Yogalo free for fifteen days.  If you decide you would like a subscription the cost is only $18 a month.  That is often the price of one Bikhram class!  What a I love about Yogaglo:

  • The amazing instructors.  My current fave is Kathryn Budig (I pretend we are BFFs), but I've learned something from every yogi whose class I've taken. 
  • There are classes ranging from five minutes to two hours.
  • The highest level I can do semi-successfully is 2/3.  That means I have so much to learn before I can even delve into the level 3 classes.  Very exciting. 
  • The site offers tutorials on several poses, a beginner center, a section specifically geared towards teens, and the ability to track your practice. 
I used to think about yoga as an obligation, something I needed to do to make my body feel better each evening.  Now I eagerly anticipate my practice every day.  I love every minute of it, especially when it is challenging. I am obsessed!

Anyone else tried Yogaglo?
