About This Class

In this 15-day comprehensive online yoga course, renowned British yoga instructor and founder of Yoga 15, Abi Carver, leads you through a comprehensive at-home beginner yoga retreat, in just 15 minutes a day.

Who is Abi Carver?

Abi Carver, creator and instructor of Yoga 15, is a two-time Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher and National Academy of Sports Medicine qualified personal trainer. She is trained in Hatha, Power Yoga and Zenthai Flow and works with the worlds elite performers including international football stars, leading philosophers, authors, rockstars and extreme sports athletes. She also teaches tens of thousands of students across her website and other platforms.

"I've personally seen the immense power of yoga to support active men and women in their high-pressure lifestyles. It's my mission to make this practice accessible to athletic, motivated individuals who don't have the time to join an expensive yoga studio or commit to 1 hour+ weekly yoga classes. I believe that the wide-ranging benefits of yoga can be effectively accessed through short, consistent daily sessions, when the objectives of the student and the content of the class are perfectly aligned.”

What makes Yoga 15 different?

This course is based on the tried and true principles of Yoga 15—a comprehensive, non-spiritual program of yoga videos designed to accelerate your performance and support your recovery. What makes this style of yoga different is that it's not only about what you accomplish in your practice but also about what your practice can help you to accomplish in other areas of your life.

15-Minute Classes

Yoga classes are typically 90 minutes long and in Abi’s experience, this is a significant time commitment to ask of a new  student. Time is at a premium in the modern age and this course is designed with that top of mind!

15 minutes is a period of time that we can all fit around our busy schedules. Whether you choose to practice before work or after work, or if you're lucky enough to have the opportunity to break up your day with some exercise. All of us can find 15 minutes to allocate to mind and body maintenance.

As productivity guru, Tim Ferriss, taught us: “It’s the small things, done consistently, that are the big things.”

Clear Objectives

Instead of practicing once a week for 90 minutes, in this course, you'll practice for 15 minutes a day on just one aspect. We might look at stretching your calves and hamstrings or opening up your hips. Alternatively, we could focus on a skill like balance, core strength, focus or concentration. You'll find that each of the Yoga 15 videos is highly specific and gives you a clear objective at the outset. This is quite a radical approach in yoga where classes are typically given generic titles like hatha flow or vinyasa which don’t give away much information about the style, content or what you may or may not achieve with your time.

Non-Spiritual

Abi Carver has been careful not to incorporate any of the spiritual and religious aspects of yoga into her classes as she doesn’t want to exclude any student on the basis of their beliefs or cultural preferences. Instead, the yoga poses and cues are all translated into English  and the practices are designed exclusively to improve the health of the student’s body and mind.

Confidence to walk into any studio

One of Abi’s primary objectives is to give you the tools and confidence you need to walk into any yoga studio and know that you've got this! Yoga studios can be intimidating places if you’re new to the practice but yoga is a one-player game and you really don’t need to worry about what your fellow students are up to. With these beginner classes you'll find that the language and movements are familiar to you and you won’t have to worry about feeling out of place.

Cheaper than a single studio class

Studio yoga classes are often prohibitively expensive as their overheads are high. In this course, we strip it down to the basics. All you need is a mat, some space and, if you're lucky, a little quiet. And you'll receive 15 different yoga videos that you can practice as many times as you like for the price of just one studio class!

Why practice yoga?
