Yoga has ceased to be a fashionable thing enjoyed by those who can afford sessions with renowned yogis. It has become a way of life and has taken a modern turn. As such, you can find yoga schools and teachers sprouting like mushrooms all over the world.
With an increasing number of yoga teacher blogs, how can you be sure that the one you’re currently following contains updated, reliable content?
This is the reason why Yogatailor researched and compiled some of the best yoga teacher blogs in the internet today.
Our criteria for choosing the top yoga teacher blogs are as follows:
- Credibility. We define credibility in two ways: certification and years of practice. A certain yogi may not have a certificate, but his or her years of practice as proven by testimonials and thoughts may even surpass those with certifications.
- Content. Blogs must have varied content – video tutorials, inspirational/motivational articles, images capturing the essence of yoga.
- Consistency. Blogs must be updated on a regular basis.
Here’s our list, in no specific order.
