The BEST Online Yoga Classes (+ a Free Yoga Sequence Library)

Back to Yoga Basics: Beginner Strength Flow

Online yoga classes have taken the yoga community by storm.

These sites offer the complete package – low-cost, quality content, and the ability to do yoga whenever the heart desires.This could mean doing yoga in your undies on the back porch, in a hotel room while traveling, or possibly in an airport before departing. Regardless of the location, online yoga classes have got it going on!

If this is your first time hearing about these classes, then bear with me.

I will be the first to agree – nothing compares to the authentic environment of a yoga studio, especially a good yoga studio at that. The energy that’s created among a room full of yogis is second to none, its magical.

Wanna know what’s not magical though, when LIFE gets in the way of our yoga practice.

Not cool. Not magical. No bueno.

Online yoga classes are the perfect solution to combat our everyday lives AND to help keep yoga present in them.

Below are 5 different ways to practice yoga on your time, when you feel the urge, when life is spinning out of control, or because you simply love the comfort of your home. And to help kickstart your at home yoga practice, below is a yoga sequence library that includes five step-by-step yoga tutorials for every occasion.

….. morning yoga, bedtime yoga, office yoga, feel good yoga, and relaxation yoga.

1. YouTube

YouTube is an oldie but a goodie, but truly a newbie for the yoga community!

And the best part – it’s FREE!

After starting my YouTube channel a mere year ago, I quickly became aware of how much yoga was being taught + followed via this platform, and it’s truly incredible what both yoga teachers and yoga students have created here! There’s true community unfolding, people reconnecting with their bodies, gaining strength + flexibility, and most importantly – learning why yoga is a lifelong practice to help live our journey!

And if you’re a yoga teacher, this is an epic place to start sharing your knowledge, practicing your yoga teaching skills, and offering another way for your students to connect with you.

Below are four channels I follow, admire and have learned a lot from along my yoga teaching + creating video way.

 The Journey Junkie – (that’s me):

….. come subscribe + join the tribe!

  • My yoga channel offers a free weekly yoga class that varies from 20 minute gentle stretching to a 60 minute power flow type class.
  • You can expect classes like crow pose yoga flow to build strength + confidence, restorative yin yoga flow, and vinyasa flow to feel empowered + inspired.

Yoga with Adriene:

  • Adriene, in my opinion, is like the mother hen of the online yoga YouTube community – she basically started the whole damn thing!
  • Her channel is well-loved for it’s 30 day yoga challenges that unveil each January, like yoga for beginners, 30 days of yoga, and Yoga Camp.
  • If you’re a yoga beginner or not keen on power/vinyasa yoga, this is a great place to call home!

Yoga with Kassandra:

This fellow “online” yoga teacher is also a friend of mine and someone who inspires me to keep creating, giving and believing in yourself. We connected a few years into our online yoga journeys and now help one another out, think brainstorming, general vent sessions, and bouncing ideas off each other!

Here’s what Kassandra is all about.

  • Known for her yin yoga classes, Kassandra is the queen of yin in the YouTube world, so if you love slowing down, stretching your body, and need relaxation, she’s your go-to yoga teacher.
  • She leads a women’s online lunar yoga community that focuses on the moon cycles and how yoga, meditation and mindfulness can help heighten these moments in time.
  • Her channel also offers videos like soul purpose interviews, podcasts and yoga challenges too!

2. Yogaglo

Yogaglo is one of the big names on the block and for a good reason. The online yoga site is super affordable, the site design is streamlined and appealing, the content is high quality, and the teachers are the cream of the crop.

And to top it all off, the filming studio is a real yoga studio in Santa Monica, CA that is open to the public. Yogis are able to practice with international yoga teachers like Kathryn Budig, Dice Lida-Klein, and Tiffany Cruikshank – FOR FREE. How cool is that!

Here’s what to expect:

  • Monthly membership is $18.
  • They offer a 15 day free trial that does require a credit card – make sure to cancel before the day are up to avoid being charged.
  • The teacher lineup is extremely impressive, as mentioned above.
  • Some of their class themes include: yoga for climbers, prenatal yoga, meditation, yoga for travel, yoga for beginners, flexibility and strength.

3. Yoga International

Yoga International is quickly becoming my favorite go-to source for credible, intelligent information regarding my personal yoga practice + my yoga teaching practice. It’s bursting at the seams with quality content that’s well-written, well thought out and displayed beautifully.

  • To read articles, the site is capped after so many a day, simply sign up for a free membership.
  • To access the library of yoga classes + workshops, sign up for a monthly membership for $14.95. This is truly a steal for all of the incredible content that’s housed here.
  • They offer a FREE 30 day trial.
  • They have also have an app for a better experience, because we all know we’re on our phones.
  • Some of their classes themes include: vinyasa, restorative, core strength, yoga therapy, yin, kundalini, and many more.
  • If you’re a yoga teacher or avid yoga student, the library of courses to learn from is well organized, well presented, and a great value for continuing your education.

4. The Cody App

The Cody App is definitely the new kid on the block and they’re killing it! With a teacher base derived mostly from strong social media influencers, it’s a no brainer that a following has quickly been built. If you’re an avid Instagram lover like me, then you’ll know these teachers!

What sets this program apart versus the others is the structure of offered classes. Instead of paying a monthly fee, each teacher offers individual plans to focus on specific postures, sequences, or an overarching theme like opening the heart, movement + stability, or how to press to a handstand.

  • Prices range from $19.99 – $59.99 for individual plans.
  • Bundles are a group of plans sold together – genius idea! These start around $39.99 and can be upwards of $200.
  • Each plan consist of 5 – 14 workouts of quality content and all taught by the same yoga teacher.
  • Cody App works on all devices – it’s not just an app.
  • Featured teachers: Briohny Smith, Meghan Currie, Kino MacGregor, Mackenzie Miller, Dylan Werner, and Patrick Beach, to name a few…
  • The program also offers strength training, flexibility, functional fitness, weight loss, and new movement programs.

5. one0eight

And last on the list, but definitely not last that exists, is one0eight.

This is another “newer” online yoga class community, but one that’s built by the oh so famous and very well-loved Yoga Girl/Rachel Brathen. If  you’re new to who yoga girl is, she’s the girl who started yoga on Instagram. I vividly remember when she started it too, not thinking anything of it at time, and now…. Rachel is a powerhouse of a woman who’s created five + businesses from harnessing the power of social media.

…..I mean if you’re not impressed, I don’t know how else to impress you.

oneOeight is one of her businesses and it’s an online community catered towards yoga, but also wellness in general, here’s what you can expect:

  • A free 10 day trial to see if you like it, this is common and expected.
  • $14 a month if you choose to sign up for a monthly membership.
  • Four house themes to learn + experience from – move, calm, nourish and explore.
  • You can view a 30 second preview of each class to get a feel for the teacher, I dig this feature!

Whoa that was an incredible amount of yoga information and it’s all at your fingertips!

I recommend saving this blog post for later and slowly digesting all of the amazing online yoga sites listed above. The biggest takeaway for us as yogis is to know our practice is portable, it doesn’t belong to a specific studio, a specific teacher, or even a specific style.

Make your practice your own and it will flourish for a lifetime.

Let’s Talk – Do you use any of the above programs or any others that aren’t listed? Please feel free to post questions here, comments, or suggestions. The internet is massive so it’s impossible to provide all of the yoga programs – share the yogi knowledge down below!

Until next time, xoxo.

    I hear people mentioning Gaiam here, please never buy their products as they stole the app “yoga studio” from people who had bought it. Please check the thousands of negative comments on apple App Store.

    Otherwise have a beautiful day!

    • The Journey Junkie says:

      Wow, I never knew that, I’ll have to look into that, thanks for letting me know though!

    • BBB says:

      Can you provide something more specific about the purported theft? I’m not seeing the reviews in the App Store. It looks like Gaiam bought Yoga Studio.

  2. Alba Martin says:

    Interesting blog! Thanks for the useful and informative list of online yoga classes.
    As they say, ‘Health is wealth’, and it is one of the most important factors to be taken care of in everyone’s lives. Why not engage oneself in a beneficial yoga practice?

  3. Mic says:

    Thanks for this great post – super useful as a newbie to the online yoga variety! been practicing for over 15 years now on/off with teachers.
    Curious if you’ve found any private online yoga classes or group online yoga classes that are live?

  4. Any thoughts anyone about The House of Yoga? Manduka and them are offering 1 year for $50 until Feb 1st…comments and reviews appreciated as I’m trying to decide if I should join. Thanks in advance!

    • The Journey Junkie says:

      Hi Cezar, I haven’t heard of that online program! If they offer an online free trial, go for it and see for yourself!!!!

  5. Thanks for this resource! I think that is also a strong contender.

  6. Michelle says:

    Does Gaiam tv offer chair yoga classes?

  7. Lisbeth says:

    Hi – not sure when you first wrote this but you left off Their site is awesome and the teaching is done outside in WY. The teachers explain things well and there are a wide variety of classes for $15.00 per month after the 2-week trial period.

    • The Journey Junkie says:

      Hi Lisbeth, I wrote it some time ago, so yes – I’m sure many great websites are left off. But also, I only included websites that I’ve actually experienced or was made aware of by a friend who used it, etc. Thanks for letting me know abut, I’ll keep it in the mind for the future.

  8. Olga says:

    Where do you get the $7.99 for Yoga International rate? I did the free month and like it, but to continue it’s more than $14 a month.

  9. Jen says:

    What lovely research and reviews. Thank you for this.

    • The Journey Junkie says:

      You’re so welcome Jen, I hope it helps create and sustain your yoga practice! And thank you for stopping by!

  10. Brittany says:

    I really like My Joy Yoga because they actually allow you to stream yoga classes live out of their studio. They have an on-demand video library that you can access 24/7, but they also allow you to register for classes on their online scheduling system for live stream classes. It’s nice because they offer a wide array of classes like power yoga, acro, restorative, pilates, prenatal, etc. I would definitely check it out if I were you:

    • The Journey Junkie says:

      Hey Brittany, thanks for the tip, I’ve never heard of that platform! It definitely sounds dreamy tho…..

      Thanks for stopping by & showing some love!

  11. Thomas J says:

    I think I will take Gaiam TV since it’s not only Yoga but a lot of other interesting content as well 🙂

    • The Journey Junkie says:

      Awesome, glad you connected with one of these online options! Thanks for stopping by Thomas!

  12. Josh says:

    I hear a lot of buzz about Yoga Glo and Gaiam TV, but neither one of them offer live classes. I use My Joy Yoga because I can actually join a class from a live studio. It’s a whole different experience. I highly recommend it.

    • The Journey Junkie says:

      Hi Josh… I think for some people they like the pre-recorded video so they can stop, rewind, repeat, etc. For me, I enjoy being able to stop and start the video knowing that it’s there at my disposal. But at the same time, a pre-taped video can also lack the energy of a studio vibe so that’s where live classes can come into play.

      Thanks for sharing and stopping by!

  13. Rosa says:

    Great article I’ll have to check these out – I use Grokker at the moment which has a free trial also, it features Kino and lots of other well known teachers 🙂 peace & love x

  14. Kent says:

    Hi ! Just stumbled across your site, love the vibe! I’m from the South too! Anyway saw the above article, love to have your thoughts on my little yoga site!

    • The Journey Junkie says:

  15. Judy says:

    Thank you so much for this list! I am going to take advantage of the GaiamTV deal. I am fairly new to yoga and it would be so much easier for me to be able to take classes at home.

    • The Journey Junkie says:

      Hi Judy. Happy Monday and your are so welcome! A home practice is a beautiful way to start and maintain yoga. Let me know if you have any questions – xoxo.

  16. Liz says:

    Thanks SO MUCH for publishing this article!! I’ve started practicing yoga somewhat recently and can’t wait to try out some of these online classes on my own time!

    • The Journey Junkie says:

      Hi Liz. You are so welcome! I’m here to spread the yoga love. Let me know if you have any other questions about them or anything yoga related at all! Have a great weekend – xoxo.

  17. Kat says:

    Ooooh what about DirtyYoga!!? I use their site, and their classes are awesome, I’m a huge fan 🙂

    • The Journey Junkie says:

      Hi Kat! I just discovered Dirty Yoga when writing this article, I love the name! I only included sites I’m familiar with so I can be a true review source. But Dirty Yoga is definitely on my radar now! Glad to know that others are utilizing the awesomeness of online yoga, it’s super convenient. Thanks for stopping by – xoxo.
