I have been a member of the website since 2014 and thoroughly enjoy the classes. At first there were only a few teachers but now there is so much variety.
I recommend this site to all of my friends. I think it is reasonably priced as the monthly fee is just a little more than what you'd pay for a yoga class locally.
Some of the teachers aren't my cup of tea but overall I like most of the classes with Esther remaining my favourite with her lovely manner and calming voice.
Can't recommend this website enough.

I have practised yoga for over 30 years and recently qualified as a teacher. It has been life changing to come across Ekhart yoga and has really helped develop the range of my practice. I can now easily access a variety of lessons - stronger flow lessons or a nice gentle evening yin practice as well as pranayama sessions - and all in the comfort of my own home.You also get to know the teachers which might seem a bit weird given I've never met them but they feel like friends! The instructional videos are also great. Highly recommended.

Absolutely wonderful website which has had a profound impact on my wellbeing. When you can't get to a yoga studio easily this allows you to access high quality classes that are virtually as good as a live class. If you use it even once a month you get your money's worth. There is so much choice over length of class, what type of yoga, what level of difficulty and which instructor. They are all great teachers, my favourite being Esther herself, as well as David Lurie, Anat, Iyengar with Adela, Ashtanga by Clayton, so many more to name. The programmes are excellent too as they help you maintain a regular practice. I've subscribed for over four years now and I would not be without it.

I had a really bad experience with one of the yoga teachers on this website (initials L.C.). I would steer clear of any website or organisation that allows dodgy practitioners to operate freely on their site.

Before I qualified as a yoga teacher I had the misfortune to experience one of this website's teachers - initials L.C., from Sussex - and signed up and paid for a course she was running. I was then diagnosed with a chronic, disabling illness just as I was about to start the one year course and this woman flatly refused to refund me the fees I had paid her in advance, even though I became too unwell to do the course. I complained to the British Wheel of Yoga about her and they asked her to refund me. She refused and no action was taken against her. She basically misappropriated nearly four hundred pounds from me at a time when I had become too ill to work.
Years later, after I recovered from illness enough to continue, I eventually qualified as a yoga teacher under the expertise and guidance of genuine teachers, not the opportunist, exploitative variety. I've since met a lot of very real, down-to-earth teachers who have themselves been burned by similar fraudsters in the yoga and alternative health world and the organisations that shelter them. It seems that the wolf in sheep's clothing problem is bigger and more widespread than I had thought.
My advice to anyone looking to get into yoga or yoga teacher training would be to avoid getting involved with any organisation that supports, endorses, defends or employs people like this woman. There are, sadly, individuals in the yoga world and beyond who present themselves as benevolent but who in reality can do a lot of damage to the unsuspecting mind and body. As yoga 'teachers' they often adopt the appearance of serenity that in actuality turns out to be the affectations and clichés of someone playing a role designed to court admiration from naïve students. It's a kind of western guru syndrome based in narcissism. One day you're a house wife, the next you're acting as if you'd been meditating under a Bodhi tree for ten lifetimes.
Truly genuine, authentic practitioners tend to be a lot less narcissistic, they won't steal from you, or harm you in any way, whether that be spiritually, physically or emotionally. Truly ethical organisations won't promote or associate themselves with teachers who have treated students in the way this woman did. no matter how 'lovely' they claim their teachers are. 'Lovely' people tend not to rip you off for hundreds of pounds if they are genuine. But you have to ask yourself whether you'd want to learn yoga from such a person, or what you might be supporting by giving them your money via Eckhart yoga.
If you do come across someone purporting to be a teacher of yoga who does you harm and is unwilling to take responsibility or make amends then at least you know what kind of animal you're dealing with. I write this review simply to help protect others from being hurt by such people in the way I was.
