Although I haven’t actually tried digitalÂ yoga, I think it’s a great solution for anyone who can’t make it to the studio. Whether it’s because you don’t live near a good one, your schedule is too busy, or you just don’t feel like leaving the house, streaming classes is now better than ever with top notch teachers offering their instruction.
Most of the streaming services offer free trials before kicking into a monthly payment plan that ends up being way cheaper than what class costs in the studio. Obviously, digital yoga will never be a replacement for live instruction, but the convenience factor is huge making it a pretty nice option for finding your next downward dog.
Here are links to classes taught by teachers I can vouch for — I’ve experienced all of them, and know for sure they’re worth checking out.
Dana Flynn: Sun Celebrations
I just took this class the other day at Laughing Lotus. It’s a nice flow for waking up the body. Dana is a veteran yoga instructor with a playful approach to teaching while maintaining plenty of space for spiritual contemplation.
Lindsay Hilscher: Challenging Vinyasa Class
Lindsay’s class consists of some advanced sequencing. She moves fairly fast which is perfect for anyone looking to build heat in their practice. I always sweat in her class.

Jillian Pransky: Rooted and Radiant
Jillian is a master at restorative yoga. I’ve taken her vinyasa classes as well, and am always left feeling incredibly grounded and energized at the same time.

Elena Brower: Impressions of Consciousness
Elena is one of those teachers you’ll see always carrying a notebook because she still takes notes! She puts a lot of energy into learning which makes for a solid teaching skill.

Shiva Rea: Surya Shakti Morning Meditation Mantra and Prana Flow Namaskar –
Shiva’s classes are deep — not just physically but also metaphysically. She brings all sorts of knowledge and experience into her teaching. Expect a fluid practice grounded in the elements of nature as well as some more esoteric principles.
