Many people like the option to do yoga at home with a video when it’s not convenient to go to a class. But even a great yoga DVD can start to feel boring after repeated viewings, leading to a lack of motivation to roll out your mat and press play. Getting your yoga videos online can significantly expand your options, allowing you to change things up whenever you feel like it. The best sources for yoga videos online update their offerings regularly and some even stream live classes, allowing you to come close to experiencing a studio class from your own living room. Not surprisingly, the sites with the widest offerings do tend to have a monthly subscription fee, but there are some free options out there as well for the budget-minded.
