The Yoga Collective
The Yoga Collective is a yoga studio based in Venice Beach California who have recently released a subscription based platform providing high quality online Yoga Classes. Their goal is to keep it “simple, friendly, high vibe, down to earth, funky and peaceful.”
MyHolisticLife .Com have reviewed this site over the last few weeks and here is our verdict:
The sign up is easy, you decide on either a monthly or annual plan, follow the sign up instructions which includes basic personal and credit card details and you have full access to the site.
Once in, details and passwords can easily be changed via the account section and you have unlimited access to their constantly growing library of classes and tutorials.
Ease of use:
Since I need something that’s straight forward, easy and uncomplicated, navigation is a key feature for me. I found the site to be straight forward with the ability to refine your search through a series of options which includes level, duration, teacher style and focus.
Styles of yoga vary and its worthwhile for students who are new to yoga to consider trying different styles to find one that resonates with them. Alternatively for experienced Yogi’s it gives the option of trying out a new style that you might not have tried before if you had to pay. At the yoga collective there are 8 different styles to choose from including Hatha, Meditation, Power, Pranayama, Quickies, Restorative, Vinyasa and Yin.
The Yoga Collective classes not only provide a focus on the physical practice but also Pranayama (breath work) and Yoga Meditation.
The variety of styles along with other easy navigable options including being able to choose your class based on skill level, duration or Instructor give you the option of mixing things up to allow you to create a class that suits you.
There were so many options that initially I ended up spending too much time looking through the different options on my first day but finally figured out what worked best for me to keep me focused.
Some instructors are doing the poses with the students so you can see what’s going on if you are confused and in many of the classes, they are walking around the room checking on the students or giving adjustments.
I really enjoyed the classes and worked up a decent sweat with most of them. On a personal level, I would have preferred if there had been more meditation classes.
Production Clarity, Quality and Speed:
The Yoga Collective have their own production team and it shows with the classes being high in both clarity and Quality. We tried the classes on both laptop and tablet and they performed well on both.
Load Time of the classes is quick and smooth although the speed and stability will ultimately depend on the speed and stability of your internet connection.
So what does it Cost? :
Compared to most monthly package deals, $12/month is very competitive. Some studios charge that price for a single drop in class. The Yoga Collective also donate 50% of their overall proceeds to benefit charities as part of their giving back programme .
We at My Holistic Life like The Yoga Collective and recommend it. It may not be for everyone as if you are looking for your classes to provide a social element such as meeting new people or catching up with friends then this will not provide what you are looking for but if you need:
- A yoga class that fits with your schedule allowing you to take any class when you want, how you want.
- The option to choose a variety of styles, skill levels, duration or Instructor
- Access to a wealth of knowledge at any time of the day.
- Additional high quality classes being added regularly.
- All for as little as $12 a month.
