For your listening pleasure, I thought I’d share my top 5 picks for yoga practice podcasts. There are SO many yoga practice podcasts out there so it was difficult to choose, but I narrowed it down to my go-to resources for an at-home or on-the-road yoga session on my mat.
Turn up the volume, roll out your mat, and practice to these 4 yoga podcasts:
- Yoga Journal’s weekly yoga practice podcast: ranging from 20 to 60 minute classes, these podcasts talk you through an asana yoga practice. I practice to them on nights when I don’t have enough time to get to a class or when I am on the road. They are available on iTunes for free and some are also available with a video of the practice.
- Yoga Download’s podcast: 20 minute yoga led sessions. You can link a few of these together to create a longer practice session or enjoy a small taste of yoga even if you only have half an hour on your mat. Check them out on iTunes and their website also offers additional free yoga classes!
- YOGAAmazing’s podcast: led by yoga teacher Chaz Rough. Each one has a specific focus (aimed at reducing fatigue, achy legs, stress, etc). He has a free archive on iTunes if you search “YOGAmazing.”
- Yoga Today: short (~10 minute) “light” practices which include audio and video. The videos take place with gorgeous outdoor backdrops, providing some nice eye candy! Their podcast serves as a teaser for their website which provides a longer free weekly online class as well as paid subscriptions to online yoga classes (I don’t get a commission, I promise!). The free podcast can be found on iTunes.
- Live Love Yoga’s podcast: Longer classes aimed at advanced practitioners. Hosted by a yoga teacher training school, they don’t provide a lot of alignment cues but flow you through a vigorous practice. Available on iTunes.
Podcasts are perfect when you don’t have time to get to a studio or if you are travelling and need a short session in your hotel room.
Now, no more excuses. Go practice!
