The Best Yoga Blogs

(Last Updated On: August 3, 2018)

Finding the right yoga blogs to follow can be a daunting task. A quick check on my trusty search engine reveals that there are almost 13 million results for ‘yoga blog’. That’s a lot of blogs!

A practise that was once mysterious and (in the western world) confined to the hippy fringe, has broken its chains and burst into the spotlight. And it seems like the world and its dog has a yoga blog. I’m not kidding, there’s a form of yoga called Doga, which lets you involve your furry friend and cat yoga is a thing too. You just know that the dogs are thinking, “Wow, is this the funniest thing I ever did do,” and the cats are thinking “You’re doing it all wrong,”!

So how do you find the blogs that are right for you?  Easy, you keep reading this  page. I’ve put my Google hat on and trekked through the yoga web to bring you the Best Yoga Blogs Of the year.  And in no particular order I present them for your perusal.
