Why Practice Yoga Online?

There is often a misunderstanding about the benefits of practicing yoga online versus a yoga class with a physical teacher. Is it possible to achieve the same or similar results in an online yoga setting? Because the art of yoga is such a personal experience, the answer is very much subjective. And while the Gaiam Yoga Studio is, in fact, an online yoga training experience, our goal is to help individuals realize a deeper connection to their yoga practice through teacher instruction, whether or not they prefer the aid of a real-life human being. In this sense, the Gaiam Yoga Studio is perfect as a stand-alone online yoga experience as well as the perfect complement to a real-life yoga class. For one thing, teacher instruction is not always available offline whenever you'd like, but with the Gaiam Yoga Studio, Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman are there to guide you all the way — day or night.

Practice Yoga Anytime at Home

We believe a deeper connection to your yoga practice can be made in a home setting because this is usually the place where you feel the most comfortable and relaxed. We all know how important it is to feel comfortable physically and have a clear mind before and during a yoga routine. And we also know how important it is to try and carry these peaceful feelings and energetic vibrations long after the physical practice is over. Unfortunately, for many people this isn't always easily achieved in a yoga class setting where it can often feel crowded and the senses can become distracted. The result is often a disconnect between your mind and body awareness — the exact opposite of what we are trying to achieve in our yoga practice.

Practice Yoga Online, While Traveling

Another fantastic benefit of online yoga is that you always have it with you. The Gaiam Yoga Studio helps you further by allowing you to download yoga classes in mp3 format. With all the laptops, mp3 players and smart phones available — you can be on the go and take your personal yoga practice with you anywhere — even if you don't have an online connection. The audio classes are, in many ways, superior to yoga videos because you don't have to strain yourself to look up at the screen. This allows you to concentrate fully on yourself promoting deeper focus on your mind-body awareness. You're not unconsciously distracted by visuals, and therefore, your postures and your practice become more personal and deeply satisfying as you learn to guide yourself. The art form begins to take on your unique personality — yoga becomes your own!

While real-life yoga instruction is valuable, the Gaiam Yoga Studio is the closest thing to practicing one-on-one with a teacher. And you can be comforted by knowing the world-class instruction you'll receive from Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman is second to none.
