Yoga with Adriene
People love this woman. She has over 6 million subscribers, lots of free videos at every level on her Youtube channel, plus courses you can pay for at her website including prenatal classes. I got multiple recs for this lady, I'm excited to try her out. https://yogawithadriene.com/free-yoga-videos/
These guys have been around forever and have studios around the country. Now, all their teachers are live streaming from their homes. Just visit their site and pick a class! there is bound to be one going on whenever you visit, or you can add them to your calendar. There are so many to choose from and the website is very user friendly. https://www.yogaworks.com/classes/live/
Need a good pick me up and haven't jumped on any of the modern exercise crazes yet? Not a time to try something new? No sweat! (See what I did there?) Richard Simmons, Jane Fonda, and Ellen Barrett are all easy to find on Youtube. I had several friends admit these were their go-to instructors at the moment. If the 70s, 80s, or 90s are your jam, know you are in good company!
