Free, or almost free, online yoga classes



Stretch, strengthen, and soothe in your own home, with guidance

Free, or almost free, online yoga classes


Yoga studios were shut down by the quarantine, and even now, some of us are leery about going back to the ones that have reopened. Not to mention the cost, at a time when disposable income may be low. The Cut suggests a number of online yoga classes that are free (or nearly so), with qualified teachers and lots of variety for all levels of practice.

Do Yoga with Me invites donations while offering full-length classes, tutorials, and meditation instruction. Yoga styles include Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Kundalini, and Ashtanga. Also available are power classes and prenatal classes. Intermediate students will have a lot to choose from and will be able to explore new approaches.
