Did you know I am obsessed with yoga? Did you also know I’m a major homebody?
Well, now you do! Friends ask me, “Lyndsay, how do you practice yoga without going to a studio/class?” Well, friends, I have the yogatailor app (one word).
Disclosure: I received a free membership with yogatailor in exchange for an honest review on my blog. No monetary compensation was received. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.
Yogatailor is a website and app created by Ramesh Padala, a Stanford grad and high tech entrepreneur based in San Francisco, CA. After discovering that the online yoga videos at that time were ineffective, Padala set out to create something amazing for the yoga world.
“We at yogatailor.com have come up with a unique technology that enables us to create custom fit yoga videos that are fit according to your abilities, available time, restrictions etc. We then stream this yoga video to you instantly. We also change the video every time you start a new session so that you don’t get bored. The videos also adapt based on your progress” (website).
Here’s the lowdown:
Sign up on the website and/or download the iOS app on your phone. Create a user profile (or log in via your Facebook account). There are a few different packages to choose from (and you can’t beat these prices!):
- 15 day free trial
- Monthly membership ($2.99)
- 6 month membership ($13.99)
- 12 month membership ($23.99)
Once you choose your package, you’re able to customize your profile. It’ll prompt you to choose your level and what to work on (beginner, intermediate, expert to back pain and pregnancy). You can also choose things for your mind like stress-relief and improved sleep. Once complete, you’re able to begin your videos! You can choose a single session, 3 day program, or 5 day program. The videos will walk you through what to do- it’s that simple!

I love yogatailor because I am always on-the-go. It’s hard for me to get in a full workout, but I usually have 20 minutes to myself while the kids (I babysit) are busy. Instead of sitting around, I am able to get in a quick yoga workout! When I am home, I can plug in my laptop to my TV and do a 15-30 minute workout. The yoga sequences are easy to follow, and also a great workout! Yogatailor has totally changed the way I do yoga.
Also, they’ll send you push notifications to inspire you to get your yoga on that day. 😉
If you believe yogatailor is for you, get more info and download the iOS app here (free)! If you’re not sure, you can read reviews and see who else is doing yoga on the home page.
