Yoga has been a hobby on mine since my late teens but since 2012 I’ve found it increasingly difficult to get to any classes and have been doing it from the comfort of my own home which can get rather boring and repetitive. I’m not in a position to go to a class through the day as I’m either looking after Arthur or working and I can’t always get out on an evening so I’ve been stuck in a bit of a rut, that was until I discovered Yogaia.
Yogaia is available online from a PC or laptop or via an app and offers live, interactive yoga classes from the comfort of your own home. When selecting a live yoga class you have the option to turn on your web camera and connect to your live yoga instructor who can offer you personal advice, tips and tricks that help you to take your workout further. I’ve not been able to put my camera on as Arthur is usually running around the room in the nude as we’re in the process of potty training and the poor instructor doesn’t really want to see that sight.
I’ve used Yogaia both on my laptop and mobile and it’s so good to feel part of a class even though I’m on my own at home. I’ve discovered yoga styles that I’d never tried before like candlelight flow which is perfect for unwinding in the evening, Barre tone 40 is an awesome full body workout which is usually performed on a ballet barre but if you don’t happen to have one in your home you can use a high backed chair, it’s a great calorie burner and one that I’ve added to my favourites. if you’re new to yoga there are some great beginners classes and a favourite of mine is the 45 min easy yoga class which is also great for people who have flexibility issues.
Pssst. Time to detox? Join the Yogaia Home Retreat, taking place April 22nd – 24th, and you can win a yoga retreat in Morocco with your friend.
Each week there are more than 100 new online yoga classes available 24/7. The best bit is that a whole month of yoga costs the price of just one studio class (from £7.49 a month). If you can’t attend any of the live classes that’s totally fine as you can take part in the online yoga recordings which are available, 24 hours a day.
I injured myself a few weeks ago and have been unable to do any running and it also means I had to cancel my place in the London marathon. I’ve noticed a slight increase in weight since I’ve had to slow down my workouts and I’m hoping that the higher impact yogaia classes help me maintain my fitness levels.
You might be interested to hear that Yogaia are running a home detox retreat campaign from from the 14th April. If you take part in this, you will have a chance to win a yoga retreat in morocco and who wouldn’t want that? right.
