The best way to get started with hatha yoga is to watch videos, which will give you a general idea about what pose to practice and how they should feel.
Therefore, I present you with the best videos to help you get started. I have tried to find videos for as many poses as possible, so you should have lots of options if this is your first time.
Best Hatha Yoga Videos for Beginners
When you are just starting with hatha yoga, the best videos to watch will be those that show most of the primary poses. So let’s take a look at the best hatha yoga videos for beginners now.
Hatha Flow Yoga For Beginners (30-min) Discover the Hatha Yoga Style (All Levels)
This video is by BrettLarkinYoga and is a great starting point for anyone just beginning with yoga. The video shows you different poses, how to use your breath and how to transition from one pose to another.
The video is 30 minutes long and starts with breathing exercises to help you relax before the stretches begin. The stretches start easy and will get more difficult as the video progresses.
Brett coaches you through each pose and gives you tips on proper form, which I found very helpful. The overall quality is not excellent, but overall is a decent start for anyone that is just beginning.
Most of the poses you will see in this video are basic stretches that you will see in other videos, but this is a great video to watch if you are starting.
If you’re looking to get rid of a tired mind and body after a hard day at work, this channel is for you.

Beginner Hatha Yoga Flow
This video is by Allie – The Journey Junkie. It is an excellent video for anyone who is just starting with yoga.
It is a slower-paced yoga session with plenty of alignment instructions to help you fine-tune your poses and avoid injury.

In addition, there are some stretches for the abs, back, and shoulders and some more challenging poses.
Yoga Flow for Beginners
This video is by Yoga by Candace. It is an elementary yoga video that focuses on different poses. You can follow along with the video and modify it as you wish to make this an excellent start for anyone who is just beginning with yoga.
This 20-minute flow sequence is a fantastic introduction to the vinyasa style of yoga. However, it may be a little too fast-paced for beginners.
The lesson is brief but thorough, and the session is taught by a kind, calming voice that encourages students.
‘Let’s Start Yoga’ Flow for Beginners
This video is by Alo Yoga. While this 30-minute yoga class is designed for beginners, the pace and amount of instruction may be challenging.
This sequence progresses through several sun salutations and other foundational positions included in a Vinyasa yoga practice.
In addition, the instructor provides education on how to get into each pose and offers cues to help you get into proper alignment.
This video is a beautiful introduction to yoga for both men and women, but the instructions are more advanced than some other videos on this list.
It may be a little too fast-paced for novices or those not used to the same pace in their other yoga videos.
There you have it, some of the best videos on Youtube to get you started with yoga.
Wishing you all the best, and keep trying! Most of these videos are uploaded by Youtubers who love to share their love for yoga, but I recommend that you seek a certified instructor (or Guru) if you want more guidance and instruction.
Blessed be and Namaste.
