It is our mission to empower and inspire our readers and students to achieve the yoga practice and healthy lifestyle they seek.

About Us: YogiApproved is a resource to help people truly thrive through mind-body-soul wellness. What began with a focus on all things yoga-related – informative articles, tutorials and product reviews (which is how we got our name!) – is now home to thousands of articles and hundreds of on-demand yoga, fitness and wellness videos serving a global community.

As we say, “Yoga is our passion. Your wellness is our obsession.” We take yoga, spirituality and healthy living seriously, and we are committed to helping our students and readers find joy and support through all that we offer.

A little bit more about us! YogiApproved is an online platform with a broad reach, we understand the impact we have and are equally committed to leading with integrity. What does this mean? Integrity in our content: we create accessible content that is educational, inclusive, accurate and empowering. And integrity in our team: we seek out teachers and contributors who share our mission and dedication.

YogiApproved.com is a female founded and led online yoga and wellness magazine. We pride ourselves in creating top-quality content. Our mission is to provide insightful, inspirational and original articles on a range of topics including:

  • Yoga and yoga philosophy
  • Guided yoga, meditation and fitness tutorials
  • Health and wellness and self-care
  • Nutrition, healthy eating and recipes
  • Mindfulness, spirituality and meditation
  • Love, sex and dating
  • Family, parenting, pre- and post-natal
  • Social justice
  • Travel and more!

YogiApproved was created to be a comprehensive resource to help you live your healthiest, best life. We’ve grown to be a leading trusted resource in the yoga and wellness sphere. In fact, according to Allied Market Research, YogiApproved is among the top ten global yoga resources and online yoga platforms!

In 2017, we added YogiApproved Classes to the family. Now, YA Classes offers hundreds of online classes and full programs to our members. Ranging from beginner to advanced and beyond, our classes include:

  • Vinyasa and Power Yoga
  • Hatha
  • Yin and Restorative
  • Guided Meditation and Yoga Nidra
  • Guided Breathwork
  • Fitness
  • Barre and Pilates
  • Mindset and Wellness
  • Dance and Movement
  • Weekly Live Virtual Classes
  • Specialty Programs

Plus, every class you take helps plant a food-producing tree for farming communities in Africa. So far, we’ve planted nearly 300,000 trees and counting with our partner Trees for the Future! We think that’s pretty special. Learn more about our tree planting initiative here.

Everytime you get on your mat you’re doing something good for others too. That’s motivation!


Thank you for reading about us and being a part of our dream, for supporting our small business and our contributors and yoga instructors who share their practice with you, and for helping us plant hundreds of thousands of food-producing trees.

As a central part of what we do and why we do it, we want to stay connected with y.o.u.! Please feel free to contact us anytime (hello@yogiapproved.com) and join us on social media @yogiapproved @yaclasses as another way to enjoy our content and connect with our community.

We wouldn’t be able to do this without you, and we are forever grateful.
