Streaming subscriptions....which one???

I have a subscription to Gaia which Iíve enjoyed & it renews around Black Friday. It was a very good Black Friday sale at about $59/year, but renewal is $99/year. Not sure Iíll renew unless I get another BF deal so Iím looking at other options. Iíve looked at some barre subscriptions, most are waaaay to $$$ for me with exchange (I am in Canada). I see my affordable options as Callanetics or Suzanne Bowen....or foregoing barre & sticking with Gaia. Any thoughts??? Iíd appreciate some input.

Have you tried Yoga Download?
They are very affordable and there's always a deal through Groupon for a year for $30. They have a large selection of yoga and a few barre videos.

Another vote for YogaDownload! I purchased a subscription during some sale (Black Friday maybe) for $60 and as a bonus, that price is locked as long as I do not cancel.

I've been subscribing to Travis and Lauren's site and it's pretty good.

Thanks for your replies!

I actually have 2 yoga subscriptions....Movement for Modern Life, I got in on a deal of 50% off for life and I love it. I have Yoga Download as well, got in on the $60 deal, but I havenít used it much as it doesnít stream as well for me when I travel so unsure Iíll renew.

I liked Gaia because of the variety of yoga, meditation, & Pilates. So Iíd like a site that offers some variety, maybe Barre & Pilates? Iíve also considered Xtend Barre.

Hi Pam

I enjoyed my subscription with Callanetics and did see some positive changes in my body. I did Sandra's classes for the most part. I'd like to get back into it more regularly but at the moment can't seem to fit in everything I want to do. The subscription price seems reasonable compared with a lot of sites.

Just a thought; Pilates Anytime doesn't seem to be popular on here but I subscribed just over a month ago and am loving it. The instruction is excellent and there are also some barre and barre/fusion classes but I guess they are somewhat limited compared to the extensive list of Pilates classes. I think Tracey Mallett has about 30 barre classes (excluding her classes using apparatus). I've also found a couple of instructors that do barre but I haven't tried them yet. I pay £12/month. It's a pity they don't offer a discounted annual rate, as I'd definitely sign up.

I like Suzanne Bowen a lot but have only done her DVDs.

Thanks Margo!
I did a trial of Callanetics a while ago & enjoyed it, itís definitely one Iím considering. I did PA for a while a few years ago and enjoyed it but not sure I want pure Pilates. Iím leaning more towards barre, will see....

As a Canadian, I’m in the same boat as you. I’d love a full barre3 subscription (just did a free trial) but at 29$ a month, it comes out to almost 40$ with the exchange. It’s still a good deal but when you have more than one subscription, it becomes a little much. I’m going to wait to see if they have a Black Friday special but they offer almost everything I want in a subscription.

Essentrics is a great deal at 14.95$ CAD.

I really like Suzanne Bowen’s site too. The search options are fantastic. I don’t like stringing together short workouts because it requires too much thinking but she does provide fixed rotations and you access the daily videos on a single page so that’s great. Her cuing is second to none and I love her bounce videos (I have the jumpsport with the barre). She has also started posting new videos and posted 7 new ones since her break. I’m currently signed up for a month - she had a special for returning subscribers at 2$ for the first month.

There is also Exhale Core Fusion. I haven’t tried their streaming yet: https://ondemand.exhalespa.com
