Top 20 Yoga Videos of 2014

Thanks to the power of technology, it’s easier than ever to learn yoga. Talented, dedicated, and creative yoga teachers put together amazing free videos to help you bring yoga into your home.

But for all of those who create really awesome videos, there are some really dreadful videos as well. Here at 42Yogis we know how frustrating it can be to sit and sift through YouTube looking for high quality yoga videos that you haven’t seen yet. That’s why we curate our video library of only the best yoga videos.

This was the first year 42Yogis has been online, and it has been an amazingly successful one. The yoga videos in our library have seen tons of love. But there are some that saw more love than others.

Here are the 20 most popular videos here on 42Yogis.com for 2014. It’s interesting to note how much this list has changed since the one I published earlier this year.

20. Plank with Adriene

Plank is a foundational pose in every yoga practice, and I’m not surprised at all to see Adriene’s Plank video make the top 20. Adriene is a great teacher and she takes her time explaining in her videos.
