The All-In-One Yoga, Meditation & Mindfulness Online Course Package
GaiamTV aka Gaia
- Much more than just a yoga online class service
- Classes about pilates, thai chi and even dancing
- Offers documentaries & short movies about fitness and a healthy lifestyle
We didn't like
- Not really focused on yoga
- Easy to get distracted by all those documentaries
- Design and structure is a bit too noisy. We prefer it a bit cleaner.
Summary: If you are looking for a holistic yoga online service you can stop looking. Gaiam TV (now Gaia) is what you need. It offers a wide variety of yoga classes but also documentaries and short films. If you are just looking for a super focused yoga class, this might be a bit much for you though.
First Month $0.99 then $9.95 / month
I love staying busy, but being too busy really cuts into my ability to do the things I love.
Specifically, yoga always goes to the wayside when I’m busy with my kids or their numerous extracurriculars.
They always make it to dance and baseball, but I can’t say the same for getting myself to yoga. Because my schedule is hectic at best, I’ve been cruising my way through a variety of online yoga class subscription sites.
If you’ve been following along, I’ve tried YogaVibes, YogaGlo, Dirty Yoga, and MyYogaWorks so far. Next on the lineup is my Gaia review.
Things to Consider Before Subscribing to Gaiam TV / Gaia
Gaiam TV is by far the most unique subscription option out of all the sites I've reviewed so far. While YogaGlo, YogaVibes, Dirty Yoga, and MyYogaWorks have all been devoted solely to streaming yoga classes, Gaiam TV offers yoga classes plus documentaries and films.
I'm quite fascinated with this aspect, but you might not feel that way. If you want something that's strictly yoga, then you might not like Gaiam TV. But if you're interested in films and documentaries focusing on leading a physically and spiritually healthy life, this is absolutely something I recommend you try.
I didn't watch a lot of the films and series because I can't get into independently produced films, but I'm just here to review yoga, right?
