I love doing yoga, every time I do it I think to myself why do I not do this more? Trying to find time to get out to a class is so hard these days. I’ve found that doing online classes are the perfect solution to keep up somewhat of a regular practice. After a long weekend with the kids, my husband and I will often do a yoga workout after we put the kids to bed on a Sunday night, its a perfect way to end the weekend. We do have to fight through the urge to watch Netflix on the couch but always feel so much better when we do it.
This is one of my favorites, Adriene Mishler is from Austin, TX., she has a great selection of online videos and they are all free!!! Their is a 30 day yoga challenge, various yoga flows, lunch break yoga, am yoga, power yoga, quick fixes and longer videos. You will also find a great series on the foundations of yoga to help you get all the moves down. Adriene posts new episodes every Wednesday, and with almost 500,000 subscribers, she must be doing something right.
Lesley Fitmaster is based in Orange County and started these online yoga classes with the mission to “make yoga free and available to everyone at anytime”.

My kids love Cosmic Kid Yoga, its for ages 3+ they have free online yoga classes that are 15-20 minutes which is perfect for kids short attention spans. The instructor always changes up the background and tells a story along with the yoga, so they follow her along her story telling through the flow. They upload a new video the first of every month, and they add a posture of the week for kids to practice, they have over 35,000 subscribers.
They also have meditations in there Zen Den series for ages 5 and up. I’m going to try this with my daughter and get back to you, I have watched them and they look like a great way to get young kids interested in meditation.
