These at-home yoga workouts will help you stay flexible and fit from afar

As we find ourselves navigating the start of a third year in this pandemic, finding ways to reduce stress and anxiety is a wellness priority. What better way to find a new perspective than in the position of a downward dog or happy baby? The internet is filled with inspiring virtual classes catering to all preferences and abilities, and by signing up to those offered by a local yoga studio or practitioner, it’s a great way to support them if in-person classes are greatly reduced in numbers due to more people staying in.

Here is our pick of the best online sessions you can undertake at home.

Basecamp Power Yoga
If you sometimes find it hard to make it to a yoga class with your schedule, never fear — boutique Basecamp Power Yoga studio is bringing good vibes around the clock with its online studio. Sign up for access and you will have both individual videos and multi-part courses at your fingertips, as well as guided meditation.

Wholehearted Yoga Studio

This includes access to livestreamed sessions and a growing library of classes. Owner Araluen Clarke is a trained counsellor and supporter of ‘self-compassionate yoga’, and the classes hope to help both your body and mind (and central nervous system) look after themselves better.

EastWest
Popular Ponsonby Road yoga studio EastWest has a well-established suite of virtual classes ready to go. Priced on a sliding scale as to what you can afford, one auto-renewing payment per month gives you unlimited access to all classes including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Yin and more. You can cancel at any time with no contract, but we don’t think you’ll want to thanks to the teachers’ expertise.
