Website offers yoga class at home

Yoga’s health benefits are widely extolled. But it can be awkward for a beginner to get started, especially someone wary of appearing in public in a yoga tank and leggings. Even experienced practitioners sometimes have problems making it to a scheduled class.

One option: DoYogaWithMe.com. This Canadian website, founded by yoga instructor David Procyshyn, offers hundreds of streaming videos, each about an hour long.

It also has yoga information and multiweek programs for specific audiences: beginners who want to progress to intermediate level, for example, workouts for office workers, etc.

If you’re just starting, take a look at “Melt Into Gratitude,” a gentle introduction to hatha yoga, in which instructor Nicky Jones – doing slow, graceful poses in a spectacular British Columbia coastal setting – repeatedly urges you not to overstress, to do only what is comfortable. Peaceful and non-threatening.

Also non-threatening is the pricing policy: Pay only if you want to. “Videos and programs aren’t free to create,” the site says. “If you can, please make a contribution.”
