Pssst, there’s a great yoga studio offering unlimited classes any time, anywhere you want….for just $18 a month. For further meditation, I’ve made you a video about this place… is the studio that has changed my life. This Santa Monica-based operation posts fresh classes almost daily, with more than 1,000 videos to chose from on its gorgeous, user-friendly website.

The options are exciting. YogaGlo has dozens of teachers who practice a variety of styles — from super-athletic to super-mellow (which is what I prefer). Want something for couples or pre-natal? These folks have those classes too. And considering how we’re all on-the-go, how wonderful that this studio offers classes that last five, 10 or 20 minutes — not an option available in a real life studio!

There are probably a million ways to do yoga with an online class. I’ve devised my own system using a laptop and a big bean bag. Here’s my how-to video on this easy technique, plus a quick tour of YogaGlo’s website:

My favorite teacher is Felicia Tomasko, whose specialty is Yin-based yoga — deep, relaxing, restorative stretches that save my body from the wreckage caused by too many hours hunched over the computer.

She has a series of five-minute sessions that offer tremendous relief from pounding away at the keyboard. I can’t post them all since YogaGlo is not a free site. But here’s one that is available for sampling, a great little break called Loosen back Yoga.

If you want to give YogaGlo staffers a whirl, they offer a 15-day free trial. Signing up means that they’ll automatically bill your credit card for $18 every month. And in the interest of full disclosure, I just want you to know that I am not getting a commission for this post. I simply love the site and want to share it.  :)

Imagine….no more stress from dealing with packed classes, space-hogging fellow students with ugly feet, dirty floors, scheduling logistics.

I prefer viewing online yoga via laptop but my guess is that a desktop can work fine too. The only thing you really need is good wifi — or else the videos breakup or freeze.

P.S. — Special thanks and a hug to Jaimie Epstein who first told me about YogaGlo.Com. She’s a a transplanted New Yorker who now teaches  jivamukti yoga at om time in Boulder, Colo. We met years ago when I was teaching at Mediabistro. She did me the honor of taking one of my classes. During our time together, she enlightened me on vegan issues, yoga and more. xoxox
