How To: Avail of Free Yoga Resources Online

Updated on December 27, 2015

Online Yoga Resources

Yoga is virtually everywhere these days. As the number of people using yoga techniques are growing, those who offer them are finding ways to make them accessible to as many people as possible. One good medium for that is the internet. Read below to find out what kind of resources you can get online for your home yoga sessions and how you can avail of them – for free.

Internet: Best Source of Information

In the modern world, the internet is viewed as a central hub for all types of information. Indeed, people love the convenience of having to type a keyword to an information you want and you can get them within seconds. This is also one reason why most people prefer to conduct online banking wherein they do not have to wait in line just to get their transactions processed and they can manage everything right at the comfort of your own home.

These same benefits can be availed of when you opt to attain sources for your yoga sessions at home through the internet. You need to be vigilant when getting information online, though. You need to invest a substantial amount of time researching on materials for free since most yoga resources must be purchased before you can avail of the information they provide.

Finding Yoga Resources Online

If you want to meditate or perform yoga at home but lack the knowledge to do it on your own or lack the budget to hire a professional yoga instructor, online yoga resources make the best solution for your dilemma.

There are million websites on the internet and filtering through each one of them to find the yoga resources and information you need (and free at that) can be a really difficult task. The difficulty of the task lies in your lack of knowledge on which site to run your search on. There are several resources available online, but most of them require you to pay a certain amount before you can access those information. Therefore, the key here is in finding directories that can show you exactly which sites offer free but quality information on yoga.

Suggested Online Resources

With the presence of various scams who trick uninformed users into falling for their devious traps, it is important for an individual to settle for trusted websites. Here are some criteria that a particular website must be able to meet before you choose to subscribe from them or apply any information you have gathered through the website:

  • Credentials – Some important questions to ask would concern the qualifications or knowledge of individuals who are running a website you are considering. It is best to choose those that are established by yoga practitioners and experts since they are the ones most qualified to run a website providing information and resources on yoga.
  • Updated information – This is another crucial factor in determining the validity of a particular website as a source for yoga information. Although yoga is considered as an ancient practice, it has continually evolved to provide new methods for the changing needs of its practitioners and make it more accessible to as many people.
  • Free – This is the key word here. Websites that offer vague or no real information but charges their visitors a fee to avail of the information they claim to have are sure signs of a scam.

Below are a few websites that are good sources of valid information on yoga techniques and methods.

Yoga Today

This is a good source of free but quality yoga resource and information online. You can be assured of the quality of information that you can get in this website given that it is run and established by yoga experts themselves, including Adi Amar, Sarah Kline, and Neesha Zollinger. What sets it apart from other free sources of yoga information online is the fact that resources are constantly updated. Therefore, there are daily workouts that you can try and adapt in your own yoga routine. The access to new and innovative techniques help an individual stay motivated to practice and progress in their yoga sessions at home.

Yoga Journal

If interactivity is what you want, you can certainly benefit from the resources provided by this website. This was initially focused only on providing audio materials such as podcasts to teach beginners on the concepts of yoga, which are available for free. Today, you can download videos and tutorials through the website for you to watch at anytime that is most convenient for you. Having access to video resources certainly makes it easier for you to follow exercises, especially with the absence of a yoga instructor to guide you.

The Yoga Learning Center

This is a comprehensive website that offers a wide range of resources for yoga instruction for all skill levels. Indeed, you can choose resources that you find most convenient for learning such as audio, podcasts, or videos materials. Their archive of yoga online materials offers a huge database of yoga information, which are all available for free. While this is a paid website, majority of the resources can be accessed free of charge. There are also incentives and additional resources that are available exclusively for members. If you want to try out their services, there is a free trial membership so you can see for yourself whether you want to avail of the additional services or not.

Required Materials

To get started on a yoga practice at your own home via online yoga resource, you need to comply with the following requirements first:

*Computer
*Internet connection
*Yoga mats
*Space or venue
*Perseverance

Finding Legitimate Content

Only a small percentage of existing websites offer valid information on yoga. Most of them are created by individuals who know nothing about yoga and mask their identity as experts. Would you trust your health and safety in the hands of these scammers? There is no need to further emphasize the need to screen the websites you subscribe to carefully.

Aside from the qualifications listed above for what is considered a valid source of information for yoga, it is important that a website provides contact information. Hence, you can have a valid source of support in case you have any specific queries regarding your health or particular techniques that you wanted to try.
