Bring Your Yoga Practice Home With Yoga Download

Fitness. We all want it, many of us strive for it but mostly, we don’t have enough time for it. My life is packed with work, family, running a home and trying to find time for a social life which leaves precious little time for working out. One of my favorite ways to exercise when I do have time is practicing yoga. Yoga lets me slow down, tune into my own rhythms, engage my body and not worry about how many steps I’ve taken or what my heart rate is. I love it. When I lived in Harlem I had a schedule of favorite classes and teachers at my local sports club but since moving back to Brooklyn, I no longer live near a gym or yoga studio. If I want to go to a class, I have to travel. Far.

Fortunately for me, I’ve been given the chance to try Yoga Download, an online streaming and download site, that allows me to practice yoga at home whenever I want. With over 1000 classes in various styles, with varying lengths and no need to travel, Yoga Download is a game changer for me.

Yoga At Home

Practicing yoga at home with Yoga Download affords me the freedom to hit the mat at any time of day or night and it’s awesome! I don’t have to spend time checking schedules, traveling, lugging my mat around, or suffering through classes/teachers I don’t love. If a teacher’s style doesn’t work for me, I can simply find another one with a few clicks and keep it moving. I haven’t done this yet, but as soon as this New York heat wave breaks, I’m looking forward to taking my practice outdoors. Sun salutations in the sun!

I’m also excited to try some classes focused on chakras, yoga for runners and even a few of the ‘office yoga’ offerings. I spend a lot of time sitting and the tightness in my hips is no joke.







Yoga Download Features

As I’ve said, the best thing about Yoga Download is the convenience of practicing yoga whenever you have time and wherever you are.

The streaming service is available on:

  • your browser (computer, phone or tablet),
  • game console (PS3, XBox, Wii U)
  • or via app

You can search for classes by:

  • yoga style
  • length of class
  • intensity
  • focus (body parts, flexibility, therapy)
  • or teacher

The subscriptions are flexible and inexpensive. Yoga Download offers 1-month, 3-month, 6-month and yearly subscriptions and each comes with a number of free downloads so you can keep your favorite classes forever. The 3-month subscription is only $24 and considering the average class at a studio is $15, Yoga Download is a major bargain.

Is Yoga Download for You

Yoga Download is great no matter your fitness level or experience with yoga. A beginner will find plenty of classes and programs to ease into a practice and if you’re feeling self-conscious, there’s nothing better than practicing in the privacy of your own home. An experienced yogi will also find plenty of options for deepening or expanding her yoga practice and the convenience is unbeatable. With a yearly membership that costs only $90, it’s really a no-brainer. Don’t you agree?

    I love yoga! I don’t do it nearly as much as I should. We used to save shows in the DVR, but we don’t anymore. This might be a great way to get back into it!

    I have never tried yoga but this seems like a great way to start. I can get used to the poses and explore the practice right from home.

    I may check into this. My daughter loves yoga, and she’s my little yoga instructor. This may be something her and I can do together.

    • Reply Patranila 3 August 2016 at 1:57 PM

      Definitely! I’m sure she’ll love spending the time with you.

    This sounds like such a dope concept! I’ve tried yoga a few times but prefer pilates or zumba. However, I have a ton of friends who would love to know about this service, so I’ll definitely be passing it along. Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve never done yoga although I’m really curious about it. This is a great little introduction to it.

    • Reply Patranila 3 August 2016 at 1:10 PM

      Right! It’s the perfect, no-pressure way to try it out.

    I’ve always wanted to try yoga but I’ve never really had the time but now since I’ve moved to the country the chances of me finding a class are pretty much dead. Thanks so much for sharing this!
