Daily yoga practice has long been known as one of the best healers both physically and mentally for people. Its various benefits like helping people stay fit or lose weight, get rid of stress or anxiety and much more is the reason why yoga is considered one of the most popular forms of exercise in the world. While yoga studios or yoga classes at gyms have been the traditional way of learning yoga, there has been a shift to yoga classes online with the current pandemic.

Why should you join an online yoga class?

With many people living in countries imposing lockdowns or needing to socially distance, going to a yoga studio is simply not possible. One such company that lets you learn power yoga or vinyasa yogaright from the comfort of your home is myYogaTeacher. They provide various yoga classes both in groups and individually. All you need is a phone or laptop and some space in your house and you can begin a yoga class today.

Here are some benefits of taking a yoga class online:

  • Practice or Learn at anyplace- Yoga by itself does not require a lot of space or fancy equipment. You just need a mat or rug and you can be practising in your bedroom or backyard. A lot of these online yoga classes offer professional tutorial videos so students can learn while sitting on the train or bus to work too. 
  • Relaxed Environment- Learning yoga from these online yoga companies is often not as intense and stressful as going to a yoga studio. A lot of people avoid physical classes due to feeling embarrassed from not being able to do the yoga pose or pranayama correctly. When you take an online yoga class, this worry is non-existent as only the teacher will be able to see you.
  • Learn Your Way-  When you join a yoga studio, you need to attend different yoga classes according to their schedule. That is not the case when you start learning yoga online. You can take the exact classes you want since these companies offer various types of yoga at different levels. Plus you can take the classes at your time whenever you want.
  • Interact with the best teachers- One of the greatest parts of these online yoga classes is that you can learn from yoga experts around the world. Some people might stay in areas that don’t have a dedicated yoga studio so this remote learning method is great for someone who wants to practice yoga. Many of these online classes offer one on one options allowing you to get personal attention.
