Everyday Upskill: Yoga

By popular demand, here is a quick list of yoga training and courses available through our Upskill program. Each resource is a little different, but they all have one thing in common: they're here for a limited time only!

The Courses

LIVE Yoga Instruction for Ages 55+ through Zoom
Head over to GetSetUp and check out their schedule. This is a volunteer led program, with multiple classes in different time zones. Are you an experience yogi looking for a little extra cash to fund that next mat? Get paid to run your own session! GetSetUp has a volunteer program too.

Yoga for the Office (telecommuters too)
LinkedIn Learning has a wide variety of instructional videos. Too many for us to list. I'm a fan of the "zombie arms" routine that I learned last month to keep carpal tunnel at bay.

Yoga for All Skill Levels
See what I did there? Yes, Skillshare has yoga courses too, including several 30 day challenges to keep you coming back for more. One of their most popular courses boasts over 50,000 enrollments from 179 Countries. Not too shabby.

Last But Not Least...
Looking for something a little more on the academic side? Sign up for Engineering Health: Introduction to Yoga and Physiology in Coursera. That one is offered by the New York University Tandon School of Engineering and has ~54 hours of content to get through.
