While yoga can be practiced anywhere, a growing number of people are using YouTube for free high-quality classes to do at home. All you need is one of the best yoga mats, something comfortable to wear, and an internet connection.

There are more than 2,000 yoga channels on YouTube, featuring millions of videos, so it is hard knowing where to start, and who to trust with your time. To help you out, we've rounded up the best yoga YouTube channels to practice at home.

All forms of yoga work well at home, but restorative styles, like yin, are particularly good as you can follow along by listening and then roll straight into bed afterwards.
