It used to be that if you weren't near a yoga studio, you'd have to be creative about your own home yoga practice or pull from your personal library of DVDs. But with the proliferation of online yoga classes, self-directed yogis have their pick of classes, teachers, and technologies.
The latest in the mix is NowLesson, a site that offers one-to-one classes where people can do yoga (or learn to play the mandolin lesson or speak Spanish!) over video chat with a live instructor, for $40 per class. Students find a teacher they like and arrange for an interactive class to fit their needs.
Have a teacher you already love and can't bear the thought of missing your weekly class? Many teachers today are willing to teach privately over Skype.
And for those of you who want to experience different teachers and styles (and pay less money) there are numerous options, including streamed videos from a studio setting (Yogaglo); thousands of free instructional videos on YouTube, including those on the newly relaunched Yoga Journal YouTube channel; and, of course, there's Yogajournal.com for free podcasts, Livemag videos, and more!
