The Yoga Collective // Win a years membership

the yoga collective

I started practicing yoga in November of last year. I’ve never really bothered with it before, but after experiencing how hard power yoga is when it was part of one of my workouts, I wanted to investigate a bit further.

It really is a great way to gain strength, flexibility and get your heart rate going.

The Yoga Collective is a fantastic website where you can find a library of hundreds of yoga class videos. They add more every day to their already large collection of yoga classes.

It’s simple to find the online yoga class you want. The videos or sorted in to categories. This makes it easy if you’re wanting to work on something specific or you want to target a certain area.

There’s an ‘inversion’ category which I found a yoga flow that incorporated some moves to help my handstand practice. I also used the ‘hips’ category as I was wanting to work on my leg flexibility to help me with the splits.

The categories available are:

  • Detox
  • Super Sweaty Flow
  • Basics
  • Core
  • Heart Opening
  • Relax & Restore/Stress release
  • Balancing Act/Arm Balances
  • Inversions/Take Flight
  • Hips

You can also through all the videos if you don’t have a category in mind.

You can see the level or difficulty of each class, the length and the instructor. You can also narrow the search down, so if you were looking for a 20 minute class, you could search through the 20 minute classes.

It makes it dead easy to select what you’re looking for. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, there’s something to challenge everyone.

I really love the variety offered here, because though YouTube is great for yoga classes, I do find that there’s more beginner classes than anything else. Though I’m not amazing at yoga, I find a lot of the videos on there a bit boring, repetitive or easy.

The instructors themselves explain things really well, too. There are a few poses that I’ve adjusted since using The Yoga Collective because it turns out I was doing them wrong!

On the home page, there are a selection of free yoga classes so you can get a feel for their high quality videos.

You can sign up for $12 a month or $130 for the year.

    I haven’t been doing enough exercise lately and I really should get back in to it – this will motivate me so much! I think yoga would also help me mentally 🙂 Thank you for the giveaway x

    What great post. I recently tried Yoga and loved it. I tried YouTube, but found it a bit disappointing. This sounds right up my street and even if I don’t win I might have to give it a whirl. No yoga classes near me, for some reason they think that people should only attend at 11 am weekdays. I work Monday-Friday 8-4. Never possible!

    Loving this blog and the updates x

    I loved Yoga before I had my children and would love to get back into it in the comfort of my own home before starting a public class again x

    I love the mind space yoga gives me while I am practising, I love the stretch it gives my muscles, lungs and mind for the rest of the day and I love the peace and strength is gives me that I take in to day to day life! Namaste.I honestly think it has transformed my running and my body 🙂

    Yoga helps strengthen my back so I don’t suffer with as many back problems. I definitely notice when I haven’t done some yoga for a while.

  • Rosalind Blight

    i think it is very calming and great to help stretch the body out therefore easing tension and aches and pains

    I have never tried yoga. Ive always been a team sport player, like hockey, or a horserider, I’m insanely competitive. However last year a disc bulge weakness in my back bought everything to a halt, and the physio I had to go thru showed me that slower, less competitive exercise was going to be the key to keeping mobile. I’d love the chance to really get started on that by winning your comp 🙂

    I love Yoga because it brings me to a place where I feel myself again, the pace of life today is too fast, and Yoga helps me to feel at peace.

    yoga is really helping my medical conditions…I find it so valuable each morning in my own home and space. it’s my time.

  • Erica Price

    I love yoga and go to 2 classes a week – I’d like to do more but money and time get in the way, so it would be great to do some from home. It makes me feel strong and supple.
