What exactly are printable companion pose guides?
Printable companion pose guides are .PDF files which show the sequence of yoga poses that correspond with a particular class. Under each pose picture is the name of the yoga pose used by the instructor in the class. If the instructor gave both the Sanskrit and English names during their instructions, the English name is used for the pose guide.
Each pose guide is conveniently named after the class it corresponds to. Pose guides can be saved to your computer and easily printed for use as a visual reference before and during your practice.
Printable companion pose guides are available for all YogaDownload (YDL) brand audio yoga classes, as well as some of the classes offered by our content partners. Availability is indicated by the "preview" button being visible in the pose guide column.
How do I get the pose guides?
A download link for a your printable companion pose guide, along with the download link for the corresponding audio file for the class, will be made available in the 'downloads' section of your account page after you complete your purchase. You will be able to preview each pose guide before purchasing a class, but the preview versions will not allow you to print or save the guide.
What is the best way to use the pose guides?
Once saved to your computer, we recommend that you look over the printable companion pose guide before performing your class. If you find there is a pose that is unfamiliar to you, we suggest looking it up in our 'Pose Guide' section so you may become familiar with the pose before starting your class. This will ensure you flow smoothly and easily through your Yoga Download class.
Laminate and collect all of our printable companion pose guides!
Collect them all! A great idea is to print out your pose guides, laminate them and start a collection. It helps if you put the pages back to back before laminating so that you have a page showing on each side. Laminating is very inexpensive, usually around 30 - 50 cents per page (so if you put the pages back to back it is per every two pages). You can find laminating services at places such as print/copy shops and office supply stores, to mention a few. Start building your library of laminated printable companion pose guides today!
