Yogis Anonymous Offers the Convenience of Yoga Without the High Price Tag

By Marina I. Jokic

At Yogis Anonymous, the possibilities are endless for yoga enthusiasts, and especially for those looking for a convenient class schedule. Instruction includes Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Yin, Ashtanga, Meditation, and Kundalini among others. Co-founder Ally Hamilton has spent the better part of her life practicing and teaching yoga and is a true veteran of the discipline. She has set out to create the most convenient yet effective yoga instruction on the net.

"We had a hunch that there were many people who wanted to try yoga, but felt intimidated to do something new in a public setting or didn't live close to a studio or simply couldn't make the drive," Hamilton said. "It turned out that our hunch was right."

Yogis Anonymous opened their online subscription service in 2010 which dramatically widened the studio's audience. Over the last seven years, the studio has become a global yoga community with practitioners joining sessions from far-flung places like Thailand, the south of France, Italy, and Abu Dhabi. Even Hamilton's friends use the site when they can't make it to class because of work, personal obligations, kids, or just life.

"The site grew to such a degree that we decided to close the local studio and just focus on our online community, though we do still film in Santa Monica," she said. "All of our teachers have been teaching for years and are down-to-earth, passionate, and so excited to be able to connect with students near and far; the vibe is always 'we take the yoga seriously, but not ourselves'."

With over twenty years of teaching experience under her belt, Hamilton is passionate about teaching yoga to her students. Every teacher at Yogis Anonymous is personally vetted by Hamilton and represents an aspect of the spectrum of yoga disciplines. To her, yoga is not a "one size fits all" discipline, but rather a fabric of complementary exercises.

"I wanted our site to be a resource for people who want to get their yoga on, who might want to sweat or who need help dealing with anxiety or depression," Hamilton said. "I wanted it to be a place to [visit] when a person might be looking for tools to make shifts in his or her life."

The website also has a comment feature under each video for students and teachers to connect, which allows for a much more interactive experience. With a 15-day free trial period, you could sign up and try for yourself.
