It’s no secret that yoga is good for you. It can increase strength, improve flexibility, improve balance and reduce stress — and it can help you reshape your body and lose weight.
But to get the most out of your yoga practice—to realize benefits that can make a real difference in your daily life—you need to be consistent.
That’s where Addition 52 comes in
Beachbody On Demand has selected not one, but five world-class certified instructors and put together three flexible schedules to choose from, so you can get all the benefits of yoga on your terms.
Determine when and how often you will exercise. You can even pick a favorite yoga instructor and devote yourself to their classes if that’s what keeps you motivated.
The 30-Day Yoga Challenge encourages you to build a strong yoga practice from scratch by challenging you to a class every day of the month.
If you want to make faster progress with a more results-driven track, the 8-Week Yoga Challenge is for you.
And if you want something a little more flexible, the 52-week class schedule allows you to practice once a week.

It’s a program designed to evolve with you — so that every time you return to the mat, you’ll feel a little stronger and a little more flexible, and one step closer to the benefits you’ll experience. With a sustained yoga practice.
A healthy year of yoga? It is possible and it starts with your first Yoga 52 class.
The concept of precision instruction
When it came down to creating the best online yoga experience, we asked ourselves if we could create streaming yoga classes — designed to be done in your home — with narrative instruction so precise, you never have to look up from the mat.
The answer is yes, and even we are in awe of how precision instruction has gone from an on-the-ground concept to an online reality.
Our team of instructors first designed each class with easy-to-follow prompts for the home yogi — and then took it a step further by testing prompts for everyday people who don’t normally practice yoga.
The result? No one was lost and everyone felt confident on the mat.
So now practicing yoga at home doesn’t have to mean sacrificing form or the quality instruction you get at a studio.
Whether you’re just starting your yoga practice — or you’re looking to perfect it — Yoga52 is a program that teaches you exactly how and when to move.
What do you need to start Yoga52?
All you need is Yoga52 and a yoga mat for a Beachbody On Demand subscription; Roll it out and start as soon as you’re ready.
Additional accessories, such as yoga blocks, straps and blankets, are optional.
