If you are like me and love yoga, but hate the gym, you’re in luck: I’m giving away not one but TWO FREE, YEAR-LONG MEMBERSHIPS to an online yoga resource – valued at $130 each!
It couldn’t have come at a better time. You probably remember recently when I told you all about my yoga video experiences. I like to workout at home, because it’s just more convenient, but sifting through individual videos, trying to decide which to purchase and actually selecting a decent one is enough to make me want to punch myself in the face with Buddha’s fist.
Soon after I wrote that post I was contacted by The Yoga Collective with an offer to give them a shot. They are a membership only, online site full of all different types of yoga videos from LA’s top yoga instructors: hatha, meditation, pranayama – there’s even a ‘quickie’ option (and who doesn’t love a quickie?!).
Along with the types of yoga they also have search options, so you can narrow down the workout you’re looking for based on levels, duration of time (I LOVE that they have 10 minute options!), teachers, and focus.
I think focus is my favorite because you can pick from core, balance, cardio, heart-opening, and way more. Basically it’s your on-line yoga class on steroids. (But don’t do steroids. They’re not very Zen.)
Just to be clear, these are NOT prenatal yoga videos. They are for the average yogi of any level who does not have a resident inside their uterus. Although I was able to find some that I could do, even with my big pregnant belly in the way, Yoga Collective told me that they are constantly adding videos and categories to their library and that prenatal is on their list of types to add.
There is no music in the background of the videos, but this could be a good thing if you’ve normally found music to be distracting. Sometimes I like music, sometimes I don’t, so for some of these, I put my own soothing soundtrack on to play in the background.
The cost of an annual membership is normally $130, but TODAY (*clears throat, puts on best cheesy late-night infomercial voice*) YOU CAN WIN ONE AT NO COST! That’s right – I’m giving away (*infomercial voice again*) not one, but TWO FREE MEMBERSHIPS!!
If you want to check it out first, they have a few free yoga videos on there to get you going. They also have yoga for beginners, so don’t worry if you’re new at this.
Here’s how you can win:
