Two years ago I would never have considered taking a yoga class on line and all alone - I was devoted to participating in my regular sessions held in a busy yoga studio along with a favourite instructor and many likeminded yogis on their mats all around me! But when Covid struck and we were facing lockdown I realized I had only two options - give up yoga or try to switch to zoom and/or online classes.
I knew in my gut that this was a crucial time to maintain my yoga schedule if I had any chance of keeping my balance and holding on to some sense of well-being throughout the long months ahead. I am in my 80th year and for the past 30 of these years have been an enthusiastic yogi so I knew what making these choice would do to my lifestyle.
But now - having found your site - has been a revelation! I couldn’t be more satisfied with the variety and choice of classes, the integrity of the instructors, the monthly subscription fee and the development opportunities. Now we are coming out the other side of the pandemic and yoga studios are rushing to welcome back their members, I have absolutely no desire to return to a crowded studio and share my space with other likeminded yogis - your site has all I need for now and for the future to maintain and develop my practice.
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate this site. The quality of instruction is always very good and I really appreciate the diversity of instructors you have. It's not often we get to see all body shapes and colours in yoga and your site gives me some hope.
Just a heartfelt thank you to ALL of you at Do Yoga With Me!!! I realized the other day how much you are a part of my life. Throughout all of the changes and up and downs of life, my one constant is do yoga with me. Every day, I am here on my mat with all of your wonderful instructors and their beautiful words and poses. Everything you do means more than you realize - all the lives you touch and improve. I am so grateful for all of you and appreciate ALL that you do! Love you guys!
Much appreciation for the great service you provide which allows me to access highly qualified instruction and instructors without leaving the comfort of my own home. I live in the country and need to drive a distance to access live studio classes so your website is something I love to use. And hey, it's good for the environment cuz I don't put any nasty stuff in the air while driving.
In gratitude to you and your colleagues,
I just finished a class and I was so full of gratitude at the end I felt compelled to say a big thank you to you all. I was completely new to yoga when I found DYWM and I have not looked back since. I am a different person now, strong in body and mind and I have you guys to thank. I cannot image my daily routine without you, you have taught me not only the poses of yoga but the incredible, humbling side effects that go with it.
May the sun shine in your hearts always and the rain make way for fresh experiences and continued success.
I want to let you know how much DoYogaWithMe has meant to me. I started with your free classes - It was my introduction to practicing yoga. I had wanted to try it for a long time. I was obese, and out of shape, and needed to change my life. I started weight watchers, and jumped into yoga. I fell in love with it immediately. My yoga practice became the best part of my day. It was such a challenge, but I started noticing changes right away in my stamina, balance, flexibility, and how I felt about myself. Over the next year, I was down to a healthy weight, and in better condition than ever before. Then Covid hit. I had a mild case, but have been battling long haul symptoms for the last 7 months. I know that yoga would benefit me greatly, but have only had the strength and energy to practice a handful of times in since then. I miss it terribly. I am stopping my membership now, regretfully, but can't continue to pay for something I am unable to use. Hopefully, eventually, my life will return to something like normal, and I will return. Until then, thank you, most sincerely, for all you have done for me.Namaste.
I found your site earlier in the pandemic when I was searching for yoga to help with too-many-Zoom-calls-back and hip pain. I found a YouTube video with David and discovered the site from there. I've been using the free content since then. I really like the mission of the group, and the ease with which I can search the library of videos (length, difficulty, teacher, focus...). It's the best search feature I've ever experienced.
The site's been a godsend for both heart and body. Thanks for making it all happen.
I’ve really been enjoying my sessions so far. It’s great to be able to tailor my classes to what I want to focus on, to integrate them more into my schedule and to manage the time more effectively. I have set a goal of doing some yoga each day, 5 of every 7 days and so far have been managing that very well.
My familiarity with a number of the teachers has also been of benefit and I've recommended the site to a few friends as well.
I have thoroughly enjoyed being able to access all the content on DoYogaWithMe, and have already found a couple of favourite practices that I have returned to.
The teachers are relatable and "real", and I love that I often come away from practising with a more full knowledge of some of the "theory" or "science" of yoga. I also love that many of the videos I've watched are filmed at local beaches.
I discovered DoYogaWithMe at the start of lockdown and have been doing the classes ever since. I love the teachers, range of classes and especially the challenges. I also got my sister into it too.
I’ve decided not to go back to my yoga classes when the gyms open back up in the UK. I will continue with your online yoga classes instead.
A big shout out to Fiji and Tracey who I follow the most. They’re brilliant!
DoYogaWithMe has elevated my practice and challenged me in very positive ways. During the past year, yoga has become even more important to me as we endure long periods of "stay at home" regulations and are inundated with anxiety producing news. I am fortunate to be someone who is not naturally anxious and I am sure yoga has helped me sustain a calm and positive outlook.
At 64 years of age, I feel healthy and flexible in body and mind. I can always find a class that fits my needs, energetically, physically and mentally.
Thank you for providing this wealth of instruction at a variety of levels!
I have followed DoYogaWithMe for a long time, and it was actually the first website that I visited that inspired me to join a local yoga studio, deepen my own practice, and go through teacher training! There are so many wonderful teachers and classes to take, one can always find an enriching experience at DoYogaWithMe.
You offer so much to the yoga community.
Really enjoying the site so far.
It's helped me jump-start my practice after some time off since COVID shut down my local studio. I didn't realize how much I would enjoy the video classes and definitely see myself continuing to use them even after it's safe to go back to the studio.
I have been a longtime DoYogaWithMe follower, and I love your website and teachers! You are the best!
In the past I mainly attended the free classes occasionally, but COVID brought me closer to DoYogaWithMe. I also enjoyed the free 2 months trial very much.
Thank you for the greatest yoga that you and your colleagues provide and deliver!
Thank you so much for the 14-Day Beginner Yoga for Grounding Challenge. I have been a subscriber of DoYogaWithMe since March 2020 and this challenge is the best yet.I find having the choice made for me each day as to what class I am doing that day takes all the mental work out, and removes any excuses or dialogue I may have about certain classes or instructors. I receive it without question, and love the variety and just show up for the class. I do admit I don’t do it every day, some days I do two or even three classes, as that works well for me and it's great having that flexibility. I don’t use the music/spotify option, I tried it for the first class and found it was difficult to hear the instructor and to focus on what she was saying, but applaud the option and maybe one day I will use it.Thank you for this 14-Day Challenge, I love love not having to think about what class I am going to do when I am able to carve out the space and time for a practice!Blessings.
I am loving the programs and have been doing a class daily since I signed up. I will definitely be signing on for a year membership.
My favorites are Crista Shillington and Fiji McAlpine, although I tried a few of the others on the two week challenge. All very good.
Looking forward to the new year with you.
I'm so glad to have found this yoga community and I look forward to practicing with you in the future. You have great content and amazing teachers. I haven't done a class that I haven't enjoyed. I've already got so much from practicing with you all.Many thanks and all the best!Namaste :)
I’m absolutely in love with DoYogaWithMe! I’ve been following some random classes online for many years, but since I’ve became a member I love following programs and challenges.
The 30 minute classes are the best for me as I don’t have much time everyday between work and two kids, and the short classes give me the possibility to do yoga every day... and it feels so great!
Thank you for your amazing work, I am an "ambassador" of DoYogaWithMe and hope to follow a retreat as soon as possible.
This site is an incredible resource. I’ve been a member for just a few months and I already feel like I’ve benefited from the yoga practice; in flexibility, strength and calm.
Beyond the physical technique, everything I’ve tried has a mindfulness quality to it and integration of the breath that I truly appreciate. Given the number and diversity of teachers, there is something for every mood and every capability and because the site is so well organized, you can easily find what you’re looking for, by level, duration or type.
The instructors are truly skilled, and also terrific communicators. I often find I can follow from the audio alone, especially if I’ve done that class before. And the videos are chock-full of useful tips that I keep learning from every time I come back. It’s apparent that everything on this site was crafted with care.
I am sorry I did not find this great yoga community earlier. Wasted time and hurt myself by trying to follow instructors. I did "yoga" in Germany, California, Germany again, Minnesota, Arizona, Down Dog App - until I found you. Started many, many moons (maybe 35 years) ago. I am very limber and thought my yoga was pretty good. Found out I did not even know the basis correctly.
I do the 30-Day Beginner religiously and sneak in classes with Guy and Melissa. They are already like family to me. To be honest, I don’t even roll up my Liforme Happiness mat anymore. Made a studio out of our front guest room.
