5 Yogis I Follow

Ever since I started doing yoga to control my stress issues last November, I've tried to be good and do yoga on a daily basis.  I fell off the wagon just a little bit over my Christmas vacation, and I certainly felt all those stress issues.  Now, I feel like I have this in my routine, and will do yoga around 8:30 each evening to get ready for bed.  Whether I'm doing stress relief or a good stretching session, I get away from my phone and social media, and can think about sleep.

Here are the 5 instructors I've been following:


1) Ashley Turner - I've had this DVD for years, and only did it on occasion.  Now it's been my go-to for stress release.  It also has a good stretching session too.

2) Yoga for Adrienne - I'm definitely taking advantage of Youtube with this.  Adrienne has a number of routines for anxiety, stress, or just calming the nerves.

3) Rodney Yee - not necessarily for stress, but he has some good flowing yoga routines.

4) Five Parks Yoga - this is one of the newer lists I've been working on.  My hips felt quite tight after my run on Tuesday, and I used this video to help loosen them up.  I have to say they felt much better in the morning.


5) Nadia Narain - this is my most recent purchase, as in, it came yesterday (Wednesday).  Tonight was the first time I got to try one of the programs.  There are 3 programs, and I can't wait to try the other two.

As with my running, I've realized the challenging poses aren't for me, but there are other types of yoga I can do.

  1. I think the only one I know from your list is Rodney Yee, and he's never appealed to me. I don't know why, in general I don't like male yogis.

    Good things there are plenty of yogis & yoga styles to go around!

    1. I have a couple of his DVDs, but I follow other yogis for their styles. I like to hold the poses so I can stretch out.

  2. I love Rodney Yee! He's such a good instructor. But like you, I"m turning to YouTube. Five Parks Yoga is my favorite instructor. She's so normal!

    1. I get bored if I don't have a variety. The great thing about Youtube is there are endless choices.

    1. I like DVDs so I can have a bigger screen, but the computer's working pretty well too.

  6. Did I already comment? I can't remember. lol I love YWA and Five Parks Yoga. Also, have you tried Fightmaster Yoga? I like her too. YouTube is my go-to because DVDs seem like such a hassle plus we only have a DVD player in our living room and I usually do yoga in my bedroom.

    1. I've finally gotten in the habit of yoga, after years and very sporadic trying.
