Yoga Programs and Challenges

Our guided yoga and meditation programs are a great way to get to know different teachers and styles. Whether you’re an absolute beginner, an experienced yoga teacher or anywhere in between – our programs and yoga challenges are designed to teach you the basics of yoga, help you establish a regular practice routine, or dive deeper into a specific aspect of yoga. 

Recommended yoga programs for beginners

If you are completely new to yoga start with Esther’s Yoga for Beginners course. This will give you the basic building blocks of your practice. 

From there you can try the Beginners Next Steps program or go to the classes page and use the filters to find lots of different Level 1/2 or All levels classes. 

There are many forms of yoga and every teacher has their own way of teaching, so try a few out and see what and who suits you best. Read our Yoga Style Guide for a quick overview.

Recommended programs if you have some yoga experience

If you’re already familiar with yoga but new to EkhartYoga we recommend you start out with one of our programs featuring lots of different teachers – this will give you a taste of what we have on the website.

Try 30 Mornings of Yoga, our 3 Week Yoga Workout or our Complete Yoga Program. While we give suggested schedules you can follow all our programs at your own pace so don’t feel you have to start off practicing every day!

We have lots of other programs on topics like yoga philosophy, meditation, Yin Yoga, Pilates, and more – browse our programs.

Yoga and Meditation Classes

We have thousands of online yoga and meditation classes in different styles, levels and durations, so there is something for everyone. To find classes easily, you can use the different filters on the Classes page (once you are signed in) to narrow down your selection by the length of class, style, teacher, specific use, and level.

When you find teachers you like to practice with, you can click to follow them. This means you’ll see their classes on your recommended classes tab and on your homepage. You can edit your preferences at any time in your Account settings to follow different styles and teachers. You’ll get a notification when they release a new class – you can choose whether to get these on the website or by email in your account settings.

If you need any help finding classes you like please feel free to contact us – we love giving recommendations. You can also join our EkhartYoga Community Facebook group and ask other members for their recommendations!

Playlists

Playlists are a way for you to organise your classes into playlists. You can make these playlists private or share them. Playlists are a great way to get inspiration and recommended classes from fellow members, your teachers and the EkhartYoga team. Follow playlists you like and connect with the person who created it to see more from them. Read all about playlists and how to create them in our Playlists FAQ
