Most Yoga channels use YouTube are an advert for their website — where you must pay to view the majority of their full-length classes. Adriene does have a paywall on her site, but her YouTube channel is still one of the best. Although they’re rarely longer than 30 mins, there are over 300 free yoga classes available. There’s also some great playlists such as 30 Days of Yoga, Yoga for Beginners, Foundations of Yoga and 15–25 Min Yoga Practices.
Best for: Beginners and dabblers looking for videos that are short and sweet.
YogaYak has over 200 free yoga classes on its site, most of which are Hatha classes led Dr. Mary May. Other than poses, flows and breathing exercises, these classes feature much of the spiritual and philosophical aspects of yoga. There’s no intuitive way to search through the videos though, so you do have to go through them manually. Many of the videos are of gentler practices.
Best for: Beginners and anyone looking to take their practice further than the physical exercises.
