Online Yoga and Pilates

Online Yoga and Pilates in Manchester

Carmel Smickersgill, Tours & Activities Editor

Online yoga and pilates classes have become overwhelmingly popular in recent months, with YouTube stars like Adriene shooting to fame as millions of people in lockdown seek to discover how to relax and connect with their bodies. Some may have previously dismissed yoga and pilates as an exercise option, seeing them more as a lifestyle choice more attuned to boosting their Instagram followers than their bodies. However, with gyms closed and many of us unable to go outside, even the most cynical are beginning to see the error of their ways.

We have been longtime advocates of yoga, and we are delighted that so many are trying it for the first time. Once you have taken the plunge, the fitness benefits don’t take long to emerge, and, if you stick with it, the experience can go beyond physical with the mental rewards of a holistic practice. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro, having the right kind of teacher guiding you on this journey of self-discovery is incredibly important, and there isn’t a lack of choice out there.

We’ve rounded up some of the best online yoga and pilates classes from some the local yoga studios who have taken their classes online, bringing their expert tuition to your livingroom. Yoga and pilates come in many shapes and sizes and you should take care finding a practice that works for you. You may want to push yourself with a strong Astanga session, or open up your body and release the tension with a calming yin class. It might be that you want to take the exercise to an introspective world with a yoga Nidra meditation, or you might just fancy a really good stretch.
