While it seems to be harder to keep up with a fitness routine or start a new one due to the Covid-19 pandemic — mainly if you’re used to going to a yoga studio or a gym — we can’t argue it’s never been easier to start a yoga practice.
With a ridiculous amount of YouTube channels, apps, and online courses available, the hardest part is which one we should choose. To save you some time, we’ve done our homework and we’ve listed the top ten yoga channels to help you find your favorite and get started.
With nearly 10 million subscribers, Yoga with Adriene is the largest yoga channel on YouTube. Adriene is mainly focused on the Hatha Yoga style.
