Good online/YouTube yoga recommendations

Can anybody recommend a good online yoga tutorial fit for a beginner please?

I'd like to start going to a class at my gym but thought I'd try to get a bit of a head start at home before I do so that I don't look like as much of a beginner as I actually am!

Also if anyone has got any tips or things they wish they knew when learning that would be great. I'm not a complete couch potato but am far from being fit either so if I can get some words of wisdom I'd much appreciate it!

There is a lot of love for Yoga With Adrienne on this topic. I still haven't tried her videos on YouTube yet but everyone seems to love her 30 Days Of Yoga series.

No problem starting a studio as a complete beginner! Everybody starts somewhere and nobody was terribly flexible when they started. Just start and see how it goes. And enjoy smile

Yup - yoga with Adrienne is fab. She is just lovely to listen to, and has a relaxed approach about doing poses the way they feel good for you. It's certainly the most chilled-out yoga I've ever done and I always feel really positive and happy afterwards, as well as feeling I've had a good stretch/workout. I may have a slight girl-crush on her blush.

Thank you both so much for your replies, I'll have a look at Adrienne now.

CoteDAzur - The class at the gym doesn't say it's for beginners or anything so I was just worried that if everyone else knows what they're doing that I'll hold everyone up but like you say everyone was there once.

mercifulTehlu - The main reason I want to do it is to learn to relax & chill out a bit when I finish work as it's quite stressful so hoping I feel the same as you!

Thanks again smile

Yep, 30 Days of Yoga with Adrienne is the way to go, she's amazing smile

Another vote for Yoga with Adriene! She has a huge range of videos and a really lovely manner. She also has a sense of humour which can sometimes be lacking in other YouTube yoga vids.

Another vote for Adriene here ( also have a bit of girl crush on her, seems to be a common side effect wink)

I love Adriene too, she has such a good attitude to life.

Are the Adrienne videos suitable during pregnancy do you think?

Two apps I can recommend too - Asana Rebel and Fitstar Yoga. They both require subscription to unlock some workouts, but there are plenty of free ones if you scroll down to the ones without padlocks.

Penelope - Look up "pregnancy yoga" on YouTube or elsewhere. I wouldn't recommend normal yoga practice during pregnancy - not because you might hurt the baby (highly unlikely) but because it is easy to injure yourself due to pregnancy hormones relaxing joints.

Came across this "review" - - of a course that apparently has modifications for use in pregnancy - I clicked through to the product website, and it seems to confirm that this is this case. Has anyone else come across this or tried it?

Hello, I have seen are looking for members to try their live and interactive online yoga classes. Might be worth a go?
