At home

Accessing yoga at home is so easy with plenty of free content available on YouTube.

Yoga with Adriene

What yoga does Adriene teach?

If you’ve practiced yoga at home then you’ve probably already heard of Yoga with Adriene. Adriene’s YouTube channel has absolutely loads of yoga sequences ranging from short 10 minute bursts to 40 minute sessions. You’ll find plenty of beginner videos which is ideal if you haven’t been on your yoga mat for some time, plus some more advanced sequences if you’re looking for more of a challenge. And the best part? You can do it from the comfort of you own home, in your own time.

Yoga with Lyndsey

We were lucky enough to work with Lyndsey Sanders who filmed some yoga sequences for our Wild Oats YouTube channel. Lyndsey is trained in Hot 26, Yin, Hatha and Ashtanga and she strives for “progress, not perfection.” She hosts her classes in South Wales, but of course you can access the flows she recorded for us here.

Can yoga help back pain?

Sitting at a screen all day can affect your posture, causing strain on your neck, shoulders and back. Yoga can be a really effective method for helping reduce lower and upper back pain. Try Lyndsey’s yoga for your neck and shoulders to help relieve some of that tension caught in your upper body.

Clifton Sky Yoga

The Clifton Sky Yoga studio is based in…yep, you guessed it…Clifton! They offer loads of different classes every day of the week as well as workshops, so you’re sure to find something to fit your schedule. From gentle, grounding sequences to more fun and dynamic vinyasa, there’s truly something here for everyone. There's an offer on for yoga newbies too with 21 days of unlimited yoga for £49.

Can yoga build muscle?

If you’re looking to use yoga to build muscle, then you can hold your poses for 30 seconds and take fewer breaks. Taking a Bikram or Hot Yoga class will definitely make you sweat more, and these intense sessions can help strengthen your body. Make sure you give your body everything it needs to recover after each session. Try a salt bath to help replenish your body’s electrolytes, or try protein to help give you an energy boost.
