How To Do Yoga and Meditation Anywhere

YogaDownload.com is your own personal yoga studio, open 24 hours a day. A collective of students and teachers, YDL boasts a 100,000+ membership base, and offers exclusive access to world-renowned teachers, which will teach you how to do yoga and meditation anywhere you desire! Our library of audio/video yoga and meditation classes are available for both download and streaming, via four different membership packages.

I don’t often recommend a product or service on my blog, but when I do it’s simply because it deserves one. This is one of those times I am going to make an exception to the rule, based on my own wonderful experience with this program.

What does Yoga Download offer?

I have plenty of customers, who like me have a very busy lifestyle and want to keep up with their advanced yoga and meditation practice on the road.

I recommend that they get a yearly elite yoga subscription at Yoga Download. It allows them an unlimited access to all the yoga and meditation download of videos and audios, together with live yoga and meditation classes, theme workshops and music for yoga practice.

This site simply has it all, their classes are starting from yoga and meditation for beginners to ones dealing with specific health problems, weight loss and pregnancies.

My clients have had specially good results with their program for helping people with back pain. Yoga For Back Pain  introduces you to the ways yoga can help you to regain normal posture and rid yourself of aches and cramps.

Find the Perfect Style of Yoga for You allows beginners to explore different types and yoga styles in order to find the one that best suites their physique and needs. I often use this class when my students are doubting if Hatha, kundalini yoga and meditation, Vinyasa flow yoga sequences or Ashtanga yoga practice and philosophy would best fit their needs.

Their yoga program also includes a lot of advanced yoga videos. For people with busy lifestyle  I would like to highlight gems such as:

Dana Damara Yoga Class – Be Still and Reflect: Evening Yoga – An Amazing way to quiet down after a busy day

From Frustration to Focus online yoga class with Dia Draper – A 5 minute session that will help your to focus at work.

What Sets Yoga Download Aside From Other Online Yoga Programs?

I also really recommend participating in their special programs and challenges such as Beginner’s Journey, 14 day Class Yoga Program.

camel asanaHowever my absolute favorite is the 7- Day Heart Opening Program which was in fact my first program on this site. It includes both daily yoga classes and meditation sessions that will release tightness and tension in your chest area and increasing the flow of energy into your heart chakra, making you feel lighter, happier, and more open to receiving the love that surrounds you. I follow this program over and over again and have dubbed it: My Honeymoon With Yoga And Meditation.

Have you always wanted to become a yoga teacher, but was not able to spend the time or the money to do so? Yoga Download has developed their own Online Yoga Teacher Training Certification!

This a unique set of courses specially planned to take you from student to teacher. I have followed this training myself by the request of my students and can testify it follows the same structure as the classroom led teaching methods and gives you the knowledge in:

  1. Anatomy and Alignment
  2. Vinyasa, Sequencing & The Subtle Body
  3. The Art of Adjustment
  4. Teaching Techniques, Building Business & Being a Professional
  5. Philosophy, History and Theming
  6. Meditation, Myths and Mantras
  7. Final Teacher Culmination

At $1495 this training is amazing value, as for a classroom led trainings you have to shell out up to $5000, without the transportation and board.

The courses can also be purchased one module at the time, in case you are not able to make the initial investment for the whole amount.

My Personal Favorite Yoga Download Content

Besides their video content, presented by many different instructors, I am especially in love with their audio classes.

YogaDownload ProgramThese amazing podcasts allow you to take your yoga practice truly anywhere, all you need is a smart phone or mp3 player.

I personally hate doing yoga inside and getting to classes  can be a real challenge with a busy lifestyle and remote location. When I’m home, I do yoga outside in my garden, when I am on the road, I do yoga anywhere where the inspiration strikes me!

Tell me, would you prefer to do yoga at the beach, while the waves gently caress you, or perhaps int he park, in the shade of your favorite tree? Sit an mediate on the mountain top or perhaps at the busy airport while waiting for your flight? This is my favorite meditation to listen to in a forest:  Loving Kindness Meditation to Open the Heart.

Yoga Gift Cards For Every Occasion

One of the nicest marketing strategies they have is the ability of buying someone a gift certificate to their online yoga classes! I have used this on numerous occasions for family members and friends. Every time it was received with the same delight and excitement!

Yogadownload Gift CertificateImagine what a wonderful gift it would make for bride to be to get in shape for the wedding or someone who has just had a baby to get rid of the extra kilos gained during the pregnancy without embarrassing her by talking about it directly.

Or just a hand your girl friend a beautiful gift card at Christmas instead of starting yet an other argument about all the burritos she is drowning. Is your husband sprouting  a beer belly? How about you purchase a gift that will help you to bond and get started with yoga together with you in the comfort of your home.

They pricing is either by package or monthly/yearly subscription. The yearly subscription is of exceptional value, costing only $99, the monthly ones start from $10.

YDL occasionally have discounted offers for yearly subscriptions, for Earth day and other special events, but their bestseller is the ongoing 50% off promotion on monthly elite yoga subscriptions. 50% Off Monthly Elite Online Yoga Packages

I cannot recommend Yoga Download enough and will continue to offer the benefits it offers and suggest it my clients for the times when they are unable to attend my classes!

As always with love,
