Ranking Factors

There are many online yoga programs that have a wide variety of yoga styles and classes. I looked at affordability, styles of yoga, quality of videos, fitness levels.

Affordability: It the online yoga program a reasonable price? Do they offer a free trial? It this a budget friendly option?  ​

Styles: A good online yoga program should have a wide range of style options. Different people have different preferences and a well rounded program should include all the basic popular yoga styles. ​

Quality: Videos should look professional and contain quality information. They should be easy to follow along. This includes good lighting, proper instructions, and clear sound. ​

Levels: Online yoga classes you be friendly to beginners. You shouldn't have to be a yoga expert to start practicing yoga. A good quality selection would include all levels of expertise so that you can build upon your skill. ​

#3 MyYogaWorks 

This is another well rounded online yoga program, it's number three because it's a little more pricy than my top two picks. Videos from myyogaworks.com will give that personalized and cozy studio feel in the comfort of your own home. 

  • Unlimited streaming for $15 per month
  • Upon sign up they give you class reccommendations based on your goals
  • You can access classes on your tablet or phone

  • They would benefit from adding more yoga styles to their selection

#4 Daily Burn

Daily Burn is unique because if offers yoga programs but also offers a large range of other fitness programs. Over 20 fitness programs include 4 complete yoga class series programs and two full pilates programs. It's lower on my list because it does not solely focus on yoga and does not have a great style selection like the other online programs. 

  • Unlimited streaming for $15 per month
  • Full 30 day free trial
  • You can access classes on your tablet or phone
  • 1,000 classes and growing 
  • Search for classes by teacher, duration, and style to find exactly what you need
  • They do offer a free trial
  • Classes catagorized into different levels

#5 Yoga Burn

Yoga Burn is different than the other programs I've covered in that it is a yoga program that does not offer a wide variety of yoga styles. This is a great opportunity for beginners who don't want too many options and would rather follow a structured program. Yoga Burn is also a program that is specifically aimed for a body transformation and weight loss. 

  • One time fee of $37
  • Full 30 day free trial
  • You can access classes on your tablet or phone or video on DVD
  • 60 day money back guarantee
  • Great for yoga beginners and all fitness levels
  • Incorporates and teaches proper breathing and structure
  • Pose tutorials 
  • Three part yoga program that lasts 12 weeks
  • You don't get a variety of styles to choose from, this is a structured program that is taught by a single instructor
  • This is not a program for everyone, if you are looking for a high intenstiy workout you will not find it here
