The Best YouTube Yoga Teachers For Beginners
Adriene is from the sunny Texas. Her approach to teaching yoga is full of love, light, and laughter. She believes in doing your best and focusing on finding what feels good — which is why she’s so well-loved in her community.
Adriene’s channel is full of kindness and loving energy. Her personality makes yoga easily approachable for everyone, especially beginner yogis. She has gentle beginner-friendly videos from healing to weight loss and everything in between.
Lesley has one of the most soothing, beautiful, calming voices I’ve ever heard. Her channel offers the basics for everyone, whether you’re interested in Hatha, Vinyasa, or Ashtanga. She has Hatha-based classes for beginners and even a 30-day beginner challenge that consists of 15-30 minute practices.
Most of her videos are challenging, vigorous Vinyasa yoga classes that are perfect for intermediate practitioners. They’re also great for those beginners who know how to modify and are ready to take their practice up a notch!
As a bonus, she often films outside in beautiful surroundings that make your yoga times extra relaxing!
Kassandra offers beginner-friendly videos that are wonderful especially for those who are interested in Yin yoga. Yin yoga is a slower type of yoga that focuses on holding the poses for longer periods of time. It’s a little bit more meditative and will improve your flexibility — but it’s not just your basic stretching. The intensity of Yin yoga can be seriously deceptive!
Kassandra’s channel also has some Vinyasa classes that range from gentle to challenging and she teaches with beginners in mind.
The occasional special appearances by her cat Cleo are an added bonus!
Brett’s approach to yoga is very alignment-based, which makes her videos perfect for those aspiring yogis who appreciate detailed instructions. She’s great for people who want to delve deep into the poses and the physical alignment of the body.
Brett’s channel offers tons of short but sweet beginner practices, meditations, and also some sweatier Vinyasa classes for you to release all stress and anxiety. She covers multiple styles of yoga on her channel — Hatha, Kundalini, Yin — something for everybody!
