The Gaiam Yoga Club is an online yoga program that allows you to personalize a yoga practice from the comfort of your own home. Created by Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman, this 12-week program features nine hour-long yoga videos, downloadable meditation and yoga audiocasts, and access to yoga community message boards.

Each week of instruction will be led by Yee and Saidman as they focus on a specific aspect of yoga practice such as sun salutations, back bends, inversions, meditation and more. This self-paced program offers the benefits of yoga like increased flexibility, greater strength and reduced stress without the studio environment.

EXERCISE

The Gaiam Yoga Club is a 12-week self-paced yoga program that promises to help improve your flexibility and strength, increase your focus and enhance your energy and overall well-being. At the beginning of each week, Rodney and Colleen introduce you to a category of yoga poses (forward bends, backbends, twists, inversions and more) with modifications for different levels, and sequencing principles for personalizing your own yoga program. Each week’s audiocast focuses on refining the poses and principles, and also includes guided relaxation and meditation.

CONCLUSION

As more and more people turn to yoga, the benefits of the ancient practice are quickly catching on with people of all ages and fitness levels. Gaiam’s Yoga Club is a self-paced online yoga program that guides you through a series of postures each week as well as teaches how to design your own home practice and learn how to meditate.

Led by Rodney Yee and Colleen Staidman, two well-respected yoga instructors, Gaiam’s Yoga Club offers an informal and comprehensive program to learning yoga. But learning yoga through a video without the interaction and live guidance of a qualified instructor may hinder progress.
