In recent years, yoga has made quite the name for itself in the fitness realm. While it was sporadically practised across the globe, in recent years, it has skyrocketed in popularity and is now the most ubiquitous form of exercise. With celebrities flexing all their weight behind this gem, it's now the most common form of exercise, that not only keeps you physically fit but also a great mental stimulation that instils calm and basically keeps us from killing annoying people.
Pre-pandemic we were all rushing to our yoga studios to get our pose on, however, the pandemic put a stop to all that. So out went yoga and in came a stress-fuelled day filled with binging, whinging that took centre-stage. Let's face it, without someone breathing down our necks during a workout sesh, we were all terribly remiss in keeping up with our fitness regime. Then in came virtual yoga classes to the rescue. Now there are plenty of options online that you can subscribe and some of them are absolutely free. Here are the best free yoga classes online.
