Hey there, I recently joined an online yoga program and I wanted to give everyone out there a quick review of YogaVibes Online yoga classes. YogaVibes offers subscriptions and video bundles – click here to check out their website!
Product: YogaVibes.com Subscription / PPV Online Yoga Classes
How much: FREE 15 day trial, then $19.95 monthly OR $199.95 yearly
Site review: Easy to navigate on a laptop, Lots of Videos, Free app to use on your iPhone
Rating: 4.5 Stars
Opinion: Love the free trial! The teachers that I chose to watch so far were very knowledgeable and easy to follow. There is a great filter that helps you to easily narrow down your practice choice depending on your focus, level and style, and then you can add specific classes to your favorites.
Going to a studio for a yoga class has its pros and cons.
On the positive side, you get to meet people, see friends, use props you may not have at home, and hopefully have a teacher watching and correcting your alignment.
But sometimes you just want to do yoga in your pajamas, or aren’t looking to spend an hour in class plus driving time, or need a specific focus for an injury, or maybe the timing of the desired class doesn’t work with your schedule.
If that’s the case, then the internet is a great place to turn to. Although YouTube classes are always free, sometimes are hit or miss for the practice you are hoping for.
Subscribing to an online yoga program can give you more access to higher quality videos and teachers than what you may find on YouTube.
YogaVibes.com is an online yoga program that gives you access to over 1000 yoga classes. The monthly cost of this program is about the SAME PRICE as one drop-in class at a studio near me. The best thing about an online program is that you can filter the practices! This assures that you will get exactly the practice your body wants and needs. The filters this site uses are:
You can choose your practice by specific body part – like hips or chest and shoulders – or by specific yoga pose groups – like forward bends or twists. There are also over 275 short tutorials on the correct alignment of yoga poses that you can add to your favorites list and easily access by a menu in the top-right corner of the website.
There are over 90 instructors to choose from. Once you find one that you like, you can add it to your favorites with some comments to remember why you liked or disliked that particular practice.
Since I promote simple and gentle yoga, I am so happy to see that there are over 200 practices for Gentle Yoga, Slow Flow Yoga, and Restorative Yoga combined! Of course, there are other styles of yoga that seem well represented here.
You can choose anywhere from 1-5 minutes or longer than 90 minutes as a filter. This works great if you are short on time, or are just beginning and want to ease into yoga slowly.
There are just 4 choices here – All levels, and Levels 1,2, and 3 – with the most challenging poses in Level 3.
YogaVibes.com, build a yoga body, cultivate a yoga mind
Outside of the monthly subscription plan, you can also pay for a la carte classes ranging from $2.99 – $4.99. These come with unlimited lifetime access to stream online.
Monthly subscriptions also make great gift cards….the holidays are fast approaching, wink wink 🙂 ….
The YogaVibes2Go app
The app is free to download on your iPhone and the experience is a little different than using a laptop. The menu choices that you have are videos, favorites, downloaded, my videos and about.
Unfortunately, you can’t filter the practices with the app. The best way to use this app would be to add videos to your favorites when you are on a computer so that you’ll know which ones you like to use and can easily use them wherever you are!
I’d love to hear about your experience with this program! Please leave a comment if you would like to offer your insight!
