Feeling the effects of all that’s going on in the world? So many people are feeling stressed, anxious, worried, and frustrated by the current climate of the world. Sunshine doesn’t seem to be doing the full trick, so maybe it’s time to partner that sunshine with some movement that’s calming and grounding—yoga. There are so many advantages you’ll reap from getting into a good flow, and even though you may not feel comfortable getting out to an in-person yoga class, you can still practice. Here are some of the key benefits of online yoga classes. Check them out!

Tons of Options

You may not know it, but yoga is not a one-size-fits-all practice. There’s a myriad of options when it comes to styles that resonate with you. When people head to yoga classes in person, they tend to stick with the ones they know and are most comfortable with. Vinyasa yoga is the one most people recognize, followed by restorative yoga. But what about Iyengar yoga, ashtanga yoga, or Bikram yoga (hot yoga)? When you practice online, you open yourself up to more styles to expand your abilities.

Learn at Your Own Pace

The pause button may just become your best friend when you’re practicing from home. One of the benefits of online yoga classes is that they allow you to learn at your own pace. If you can’t get into a move quick enough, you can pause and adjust. You can’t very well yell at the instructor to stop and help you, but that’s exactly what you can do with online yoga.

Find Total Comfort

Especially for beginners, the idea of heading into a yoga class can be quite overwhelming. Or maybe you find it hard to focus in a room full of people. Online classes allow you to grow in your practice while you find comfort in the sanctuary of your home. You can find complete ease in your home—far from the judgment of others and the prying eye of strangers. You’ll even find and establish a better and deeper relationship with yoga.

Time for Self-Reflection

One of the main objectives of yoga is to help you create a connection with yourself and the world around you. When you practice on your own, you deepen that connection with yourself. Rather than focusing on how flexible the girl next to you is, you can focus on yourself and your abilities. You’ll learn how to read and push your body, when to pull back, and how to connect your breath to your movement.

Play When You Need

Feeling overwhelmed? Not falling asleep easily? Need a flow to get you ready for the morning? With online yoga, you can press play whenever your mind and body need it. You can choose an easy morning flow or an intense workout to test your body after work—the options are open, and the time is whenever you want!

These are just a few of the benefits of online yoga classes. Take advantage of it while you can!
