Digital yoga classes are growing as the yoga community around the globe multiplies. This fitness innovation extends yoga access to homebodies and gurus in remote locations. Traveling yoga enthusiasts can even drop their mats in hotel rooms with their computers and work up a sweat.
Les Leventhal, a former lululemon athletica yoga ambassador, recently created his own podcast yoga series, updated weekly with a new class. His podcasts cost $19.99 (USD) per month, which includes four classes of varying length - very reasonable considering the cost of monthly yoga studio passes (averaging $160 in urban centres) or drop-in fees upwards of $12-24 per class.
Yogajournal.com/podcasts also offers free mini classes with a selection that varies from Deep Hip Openers to an Energizing Sequence. This allows you to choose your class based on your body's needs. Classes can be taken via RSS or iTunes.
Podcast yoga allows passionate yogis and yoginis to reach their fitness goals in their home, while traveling, and for an affordable price. With the recent economy, podcast yoga may be the solution for budget-conscious yogis. Best of all, you can get into the mudra nude at home.
