Hey hey hey, gorgeous!
Just popping in to share a GREAT yoga tip with you. Something I use every day and absolutely LOVE! Insert drumroll: OmStars!
Perhaps you’ve already heard about it and use it? Well, if not read on.
I’ve been practising with OmStars for a couple of months now and LOVE it. Basically, OmStars is Netflix for yogis and the channel is created by the amazing Kino MacGregor (aka Kino Yoga) and Kerri Verna (aka Beachyogagirl). I mean, honestly, can you get better teachers that these two? One day I would LOVE to practise with both of them in real life but for now I’m just thrilled to be practising with them online.
Sooo, let’s talk more about OmStars and what it is!
On the website OmStars is described as:
OmStars is real, watchable, entertaining, enlightening, authentic, life-changing content made for yogis by yogis. We like to think ourselves as “Netflix for Yogis”. Whether you are a total yoga beginner, someone looking for healing from chronic pain, searching for mindfulness and meditation to soothe a busy mind, or trying to master a handstand, we will be with you every step of the way. You’ll discover a sense of the sacred and re-open the doors of reverence your life. Yoga is a spiritual tradition with profound depth one your experience on OmStars is curated by the best teachers in the world. Each class is part of a larger course designed by a select group of the leaders in spirituality and mindfulness.
Our platform covers in-depth how to live the holistic health lifestyle and goes way beyond just what shapes you can make with your body. You’ll get to see the real life of yogi Mom Kerri with two kids and travel the world with globe-trotting Kino and much more. Understand what a yogi does, how a yogi talks, you get to share so much more than just great classes. OmStars is your virtual sangha, a community where you share your yoga practice and the transformation it has brought to your life.
Sounds pretty amazing, right? Well, it is!
There are four categories: Practice, Insight, Wellness & Culture. So, they really cover everything which I personally am huge fan of. Yoga is so much more than the poses you do on your mat – yoga is a way of life – and OmStars really understands that.
I am learning so much about yoga and the yogi lifestyle. Until I started practising with OmStars, I was mostly focused on getting on my mat and do the asanas (the poses). But now I am meditating every day, I am challenging myself so much more when I do my asanas, I am learning about the philosophy behind yoga and what yoga really is.
& let me tell you: it is CHANGING my life! Yes, really. I am happier, more content, more peaceful, my anxiety level is decreasing (they have been sky high since my boyfriend died in November last year), I’m living more in the moment, I feel more free, my “depression thoughts” and “eating disorder thoughts” are decreasing as well & I have more energy.
So yeah, I am quite psyched about OmStars because it is truly making a HUGE change in my life. & it’s much cheaper than practising at a studio. OmStars costs $15 per month, and most yoga studios I go to in London cost like £95 a month!
I still go to a classes every now and then to practise with a teacher in real life but I am saving A LOT of money by having switced to OmStars – & I’m learning a ton! Also, OmStars is great if you travel a lot or have a crazy schedule because you can take OmStars with you ANYWHERE and you can do it ANYTIME.
Are you practising on OmStars? If you are, what do you think? Would LOVE to hear your thoughts about it!
Love you lots, babes!
