At the end of every retreat we get a lot of people asking how they can maintain their yoga practice back home when they don’t have us there to guide them through a sequence. They want to practice, but they don’t know where to start. We made a list of meditation resources for you a while back, and now we’re doing the same for yoga. Ideally, you could sit down with your favourite teacher and create an individualised lesson plan that fits you personally, but we don’t all have that option. And we can’t always make it to a class when we want to, so the next best thing is finding an online resource that resonates with you.
We’ve made a list of our favourite online yoga classes/ resources that we recommend to our students when we can’t be there to teach them ourselves! We recommend trying out some different ones until you find what suits you and your needs.
All you need is a yoga mat, some kind of streaming device and the willingness to carve out some time in your day for YOU!

Worth the investment if you have been practicing for a little while and looking to deepen your knowledge.

Love, Rosie & Tash
