For many people, attending a physical yoga class isn’t always a convenient or suitable option. Whether it’s due to financial constraints, inconvenient timings, or just an aversion to practising in front of others, in-person yoga simply doesn’t work for everyone all the time.

And when that’s the case, there’s no better place to turn than the endless educational resource that is the internet. In recent years, yoga channels have become enormous on YouTube, with the current most popular channel (Yoga With Adriene – notice how many videos from this channel feature in today’s list) boasting a huge 11.1 million-strong subscriber base at the time of writing.

But what the incredible popularity of the genre also means is that the variety of yoga videos to choose from is seemingly infinite. And with so much choice, it really can be difficult to narrow down the selection.

So, in an attempt to solve that problem, we’ve gone with the age-old strategy of simply settling with the most popular. Here, then, presented in order of most-to-least views, are the 14 current most popular YouTube videos that appear under the search term “yoga routine”.   

Note: there were a couple of ‘kids yoga’ videos in the results that we opted to leave out, and we weren’t able to feature one of the routines due to copyright.
