5 Favorite Yoga YouTube Channels

After practicing yoga several times a week at home for a year, I keep coming back to these 5 Yoga YouTube Channels. Practicing yoga weekly was a New Year’s goal last year, and I wanted to do it in the comfort of my home. With the following experienced yoga instructors, I was able to do just that. If practicing yoga (more often) is your goal, you can easily get started and get going with these 5 Yoga YouTube channels!

Find the peace and serenity within with yoga.

Do you want to work on core? Get your heart rate up? Need a quick morning sess before heading out? You can bet your namaste there’s a YouTube instructor that can help you out.

  1. Get started with SaraBeth’s 7-day challenge of 15-minute morning videos. When you’re ready, you can move on to her 30-day challenge!

2. If you’re looking to improve your flexibility, need something light, or need to relieve pain, YogaTX has a plethora of videos available just for you. By the way, Cole Chance is the best!

3. For all types of yoga and types of levels, YogawithAdriene will lift your spirits with her positive attitude and playfulness.

4. When you’re ready for more challenging yoga videos, you should definitely practice with BrettLarkinYoga:

5. Last but not least, YogaUpload has several videos for strong beginners, intermediate yogis, and advanced yogis.

Bonus: PsycheTruth and YogaWithCandace are also great channels with experienced instructors. You don’t need much to get started: a mat, an Internet connection, and a comfortable workout outfit will do the trick. Yoga is like poppin’ Pringles (but healthier) because once you start, you won’t be able to stop. You’ll feel more relaxed and sleep better in the long run, too. Namaste.

New Year’s Resolutions

Happy New Year!

Last year was quite a year with losing my grandfather, earning a master’s degree, getting engaged,  adopting a dog, moving, interning at GoAbroad.com, and going to Germany. My New Year’s resolutions last year were to get my master’s degree (accomplished), do yoga more (accomplished), practice guitar more (that dropped off), and the rest I forget honestly.

2017

January can be a bit of a depressing month with the darkness and staying inside, but I’ve been trying to stay positive and keep a good attitude. This month also has the power to motivate us to be better to ourselves and to each other. In light of that, I have decided to post my 10 resolutions:

  1. Blog twice a month, every month
  2. Practice gratefulness (saying three things in the morning and journaling in the evening about what was good about my day)
  3. Read 10 fiction books throughout the year
  4. Exercise four days a week, 45 minutes each session (biking, yoga, running)
  5. Join and participate in a volunteer organization
  6. Apply for more writing/tutoring opportunities
  7. Practice piano three times a week, 30 minutes each session
  8. Get my thesis published in a journal
  9. Practice mindful meditation daily
  10. Respond to a writing prompt once a week

After looking at this list, I feel like it’s going to be quite ambitious, but I want to grow the most in my writing this year. I’m going to do my best to break them down into smaller goals and set aside time for them on a calendar. I’m hopeful that this year will be wonderful with getting married and going on a honeymoon, growing personally and professionally, and meeting more people.

Well, we’ll see how this year goes. Thanks for reading. Cheers to 2017!

What are your New Year’s resolutions?
