There are a lot of great yoga resources and tools on the internet right now. Here are some of our favorites…
For yoga teachers
Yoga Teacher Central – one of the most in-depth sites on the internet for yoga teachers who want to build their knowledge and develop great classes. Highly recommended. You can get lots of good info without being a member, but the membership is well worth. Click here for a 10% discount off any membership.
Tummee – this site has a very cool free Sanskrit learning tool. Also, check out its free trial for the yoga sequence builder. Great for teachers as well as practitioners.
AudibleYoga – a great resource for practitioners and yoga teachers, with hundreds of classes recorded and available on a subscription basis. PLUS, earn residual income by adding your own recordings to the library. They’ll even teach you how to do it!
YogaUOnline – I’ve done several courses on this site that brings top-tier yoga teachers together for interviews and trainings that often qualify for Yoga Alliance continuing ed credits. Lots of fantastic learning to be had here. Check out the free 10-day trial on their online yoga practices.
For clothes hounds
Evolvefitwear – a great site for finding something fun to wear to yoga. Get $10 off $100 for signing up on mailing list.
Gaiam – A yoga superstore that carries all kinds of yoga goods. You will surely find something here you can’t live without.
Lily Lotus – based here in Honolulu and owned by a friend of ours, Momi Chee, this brand has beeeeeeoutiful clothing, not just for yoga but for your entire yoga lifestyle.
Lucy – I give this site an A+ for its clean design, ease of use and wide variety of styles.
Revolve Clothing – another site with lots of awesome yoga brands. Sign up on the mailing list for a 10% off coupon.

“Build your yoga business” online tools
Aweber – this is the email list service that we use here at BlissfulYogini and we couldn’t be happier with it! Click here for a 30-day free trial.
LeadPages – this web-based service is how we make our subscription forms, landing, sales and product pages. If you have LeadPages, you can collect email addresses without even having a website. This is really the BEST service out there for this type of thing, IMHO.
Canva – this super-useful, mostly-free, web-based design site has been a godsend for my design needs. Tania and I use it for designing our Instagram and Pinterest posts as well as many of the graphics used on this site. Even if you don’t consider yourself a designer, you can create beautiful graphics using the many templates it offers. For some designs and photos you pay $1, but we’ve created dozens of designs without needing to use those images.
ArtText2 – a Mac app ($19.99) that handles my graphic design needs when Canva doesn’t. Between these two, I have no need for Photoshop anymore.
Dropbox – most people know about Dropbox by now, but just in case you don’t, this is how Tania and I pass files back and forth between each other. You can share folders and files easily and even store backups of important documents and photos on the service.
Evernote – this crazy useful software is something I couldn’t live without. It’s a cloud-based filing system that allows files and document to be available on all your devices, similar to Dropbox but arranged differently. It’s hard to describe until you try it..and then you’ll go, “Oh, I get it!” There’s a free version but Tania and I have the Premium level ($49.99/year) so that we can collaborate on blog articles and research for courses we’re developing. There’s also a Plus level that runs $24.99 per year.
Screen-Record Pro – this super-reasonable Mac app ($7.99) is what we use to create training videos that require the viewing and recording of our computer screen. Although it may not be as full-featured as something like Camtasia, you can’t beat the price. I think it’s available for PCs too.
Bandha Yoga’s Vinyasa Flow
Yoga Traditions by Georg Feuerstein, Ph.D.
The Radiance Sutras by Lorin Roche, Ph.d.
Inside the Yoga Sutras by Reverend Jaganath Carrera
When the woman who would become Indra Devi was born in Russia in 1899, yoga was virtually unknown outside of India. By the time of her death, in 2002, it was being practiced everywhere, from Brooklyn to Berlin to Ulaanbaatar. In The Goddess Pose, New York Times best-selling author Michelle Goldberg traces the life of the incredible woman who brought yoga to the West—and in so doing paints a sweeping picture of the twentieth century.
