Yoga Freebies? Yes, Please!

Yesterday thunderstorm clouds descended over the hill that our house is perched on, rumbling and flashing and making my living room decidedly cozy. Cozy . . . and perfect for some yoga. So I whipped out a 90 minute David Farmar class that I downloaded from and stretched, twisted, and sweated my way through a practice that left me feeling absolutely delicious. I've been doing more running, biking, and weight lifting of late, which are all wonderful, but have been neglecting my yoga. It felt heavenly to return to the mat.

Which brings me to my super-fabulous announcement!, a fabulous website that sells downloadable audio yoga classes with corresponding pose guides, wants to bless you, my lovely readers, with some yoga freebies! I enjoy downloading audio yoga practices from the net, but offers the highest quality sequences that I have experienced. I highly recommend them! Their classes span every level, from introductory or stretching-based classes to advanced flows that incorporate inversions and contortions that bend both the mind and body. The website even offers meditations, pre-natal yoga, and yoga for cyclists and runners. Some of my favorite classes include:
  • Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga #1 (90 minutes)
  • Yoga for Runners (60 minutes)
  • Core Yoga #1 (both the 30 and 60 minute classes)
  • Morning Flow #1 (60 minutes)
  • Power Yoga #2 (75 minutes)
If you're unsure about buying either an individual class or purchasing a subscription, the site has free 20 minute practices (and one free 70 minute power yoga class!) for your testing pleasure.

To further enhance your yogaficiation, would like to offer Kitchen Courage's readers a 50% discount on all purchases at their website. Simply enter the coupon code KitchenCourage (one word) on the checkout page any number of times between now and June 30, 2009 to receive your discount!

But that's not all. The fine folks at would also like to give away one Elite Membership to a lucky reader. That means that you would have unlimited access to all of's classes, meditations, and music for a full year. Wowza!

  1. I've been practising yoga at home for 14 years. When I was exploring yoga teacher training six years ago, I realised that I should probably go to a *class* if I really intended to teach classes! Now a full-time teacher, I rely on my home yoga practice because it's the most flexible way for me to schedule my daily practice, but I draw inspiration from the occasional classes I attend. Going to a yoga class is like a vacation for me - I don't have to cue anyone because I'm the one being cued! I would love the elite membership to enhance my home yoga practice. Thanks!

  2. I also posted a link to this entry, promoting your giveaway, from my Twitter site. :-)

  3. THANK YOU!I've been wanting this YOGADOWNLOAD membership but couldn't because of finance problem... i hope i win
