The 9 best yoga YouTube channels
One of the most popular yoga teachers on YouTube, Adriene Mishler has over 10 million (yes, 10 million) subscribers on her channel, Yoga With Adriene. Taking a class with Mishler feels like you’ve stepped into the class of a friend. Instead of hyper-produced videos of perfection, Mishler lets the mishaps of her life appear in her videos—whether it’s her dog poking into the frame or a loud noise outside. Mishler offers a range of classes—from a quick 5-minute morning flow to a 50-minute self-love practice. If you’re looking for a sense of routine or accountability in your practice, Mishler also hosts 30-day challenges on her channel.
Consider yourself a beginner or intermediate level yogi? Check out Bright & Salted Yoga, a channel run by yoga teacher Arianna Elizabeth. She releases videos every Monday and Wednesday, so a new flow is always available—for free. From 10-minute meditations to 20-minute yoga sculpt classes, there’s something for everyone. She even offers classes without music for those who love to tune in without turning it up.

Have a very specific practice in mind? There’s a good chance it’s on the channel SarahBethYoga.

If you want to feel transported to an in-person yoga class (from the comfort and ease of your bedroom, of course), consider taking one of Travis Eliot’s classes on YouTube. With over 250,000 subscribers, Eliot posts a range of yoga sequences, including longer classes and shorter meditations. Looking for a class longer than an hour that you can do at home? Eliot teaches 60- and 75-minute sequences, as well, offering you the chance to move into a deep, fluid and long practice at home.

Plus, you’ll feel more empowered, at ease—and generally better—when you finally rest in Savasana.
