The Best Australian (And New Zealand!) Free Youtube Yoga & Fitness Classes!

While luckily here in Perth we are safely out of lock-down and can enjoy going to the gym without masks (thank goodness!), I still love a home workout for those days you can’t be bothered to leave home, but still want to get the body moving. I have put together some of my favourite Aussie fitness YouTubers to help you workout at home, and the best part, for free!

♥ The Jungle Body also sell a range of cute merchandise

The Jungle Body

The Jungle Body is a biz based on dance and cardio-based workout classes that combine fun and fitness with great music. Started by Perth-born Tara Simich, you can find classes all around Perth and in over 20 countries around the world!

But for those times you can’t get to class (*cough* another lockdown *cough*), you can check their Youtube channel for some fitness-inspo. They also have some videos floating around on their website like this one. The best part about The Jungle Body workouts is that you can do them with minimal equipment; all you will need is a yoga mat and 5kg dumbbells. Failing that, you can always get away with a towel and a couple of tins of beans!

If you use Kayla ItsinesSWEAT app, then you may already know Australian yogi Sjana Elise Earp. What you might not know is that Sjana has a great YouTube channel packed with yoga and guided meditation-videos, perfect for a wide range of abilities, from beginner to experienced yogis.

Sjana’s sunny attitude and encouragement really makes you feel like you are nailing that downward dog, and help to try your best each time you step onto your yoga mat. It’s also nice to move along to an Aussie voice, as most of the popular yoga YouTubers are American (no hate to Yoga with Adrienne of course!) My recommendation is this morning/before bed yoga sequence for beginners. Love any exercise I can do in my PJs without leaving my bed!

Sam Wood

Yep Sam Wood, former Bachelor, who you may know also now runs an online workout and weight loss program, 28 by Sam Wood. Luckily for us though, he also has a goldmine of free workout video on his Youtube channel. His videos range from short ones that just give you an overview of a routine, to longer work along-with-me type videos. I also love his “live” full-length workout videos that feature some cheeky cameos from family members… oh the joys of working out at home! He also has a playlist of videos using equipment, that are perfect if you have a home gym or if you want to follow the videos at the gym. My favourite is this workout you can do with your dog! The cutest.

I first came across this radiant being while taking part in onboarding for a new role at lululemon – I’m lucky enough that the company I work for values mental & physical wellbeing very highly, and as such the remote team I was joining took part in a live yoga class with Korrie early one morning, to get us prepped for a day of absorbing information.

And it was incredible. Korrie’s voice, fluid style of teaching, and ease & grace is evident – and it flows effortlessly through the screen and lands softly in the body.

I was excited to learn afterwards that Korrie has a treasure trove of free yoga classes – available on Youtube under her brand, Yoga by Korrie, and she adds a couple of new gems every month. Definitely a new favourite of mine, and someone that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone who needs to weave a little bit more relaxation into their day.

So there you have some of the best homegrown and free online workouts to help you get your butt off the couch when stuck at home, or just to help you incorporate some different workouts into your routine.
