Online Yoga and Mindfulness Trends in 2022

The surge in online yoga classes is anticipated to stay in 2022 as individuals worldwide seek the comfort and convenience of practicing yoga at home.
The fitness industry initially took a massive hit with the coronavirus outbreak in 2020 as studios and gyms shut their doors—temporarily and permanently. 

As a result, there’s been a growing increase in demand for online yoga classes and training, virtual retreats and workshops, emphasizing mindfulness practices. 

Preference for online and at-home workouts will change the $32 billion fitness industry as many studios and trainers opt for a hybrid style of instruction with in-person/online events. The options to pursue and support a lifestyle of wellness are endless, with ever-increasing opportunities to participate in on-demand subscription platforms and Livestream workouts with industry experts all over the world. 

While nothing can compare to coming together to break a sweat and experience the surge of endorphins in the community, many appreciate the benefits of online yoga and fitness classes. 

We analyzed the past 365 days on the Practice with Clara Apps to see who, what, where, when, and how our community showed up to practice in 2021.

Read on to see the top yoga classes, collections, Livestream events, and the countries and ways people participate in the online yoga community.
