Online Yoga with Heart and Soul!
While the promise of yoga is rich in depth and meaning, today’s online world can sometimes leave out the extraordinary layers of living the yogi life.
We, Kino and Kerri, have created OmStars, a new online yoga channel with content created for yogis by yogis, that authentically integrates the traditional yoga experience into modern life.
The yoga lifestyle is more than just a physical practice; it is a matter of inner light.
Our goal is to create a meaningful yoga experience for all. Taking you beyond the poses, OmStars will house a multitude of yoga resources and will share with you our day-to-day experiences of living the yogi life. The end result is yoga with heart and soul.
OmStars online platform will include:
- A curated curriculum, that features the best teachers and hosts in the world
- Courses and detailed practice videos that go beyond asana
- Behind the scenes access to our yogi lives
- A practice tracker
- Reward points
Read on to learn more and join us today!
"For the last ten years, I’ve been working on sharing what it means to be a modern-day yogi. I wanted to create the first ever yoga channel with content created by yogis for yogis and I am so happy to say that this is about to become a reality. I hope you’ll support us in making this dream come true.” - Kino MacGregor
As dedicated yogis, we struggled to find content online that spoke to us and our lifestyle. With so many people seeking guidance in their practice on and off the mat, we decided to create a space where yogis around the globe could have access to more than just online classes.
OmStars is a library of yogic resources. From Sanskrit courses to healthy recipes, to a behind the scenes look into a busy mom’s practice, our platform helps guide you on your journey, so you can fully immerse yourself into the world of yoga. A space to create your best Yogi Life – All for just $14.99 per month.
We have been working hard to create our exclusive content but to ensure we can continue, we need your help! We have assembled a small team that is working non-stop behind the scenes to make this dream a reality and we have come to you for help to make OmStars the best yoga subscription website there is.
- Practice - Yoga, Meditation and Movement Courses
- Insights - Study Knowledge and Wisdom Courses
- Wellness - Vegan Cooking and Balanced Living Courses
- Culture & Lifestyle - Travel, Fun, and Play
OmStars is a place where you come to seek peace and find your true path amidst a world of chaos. From yoga philosophy to wellness and culture - OmStars is the first channel all about yoga all the time.
New content will be updated weekly to help you stay motivated to get on your mat. Our courses will help build progress in your practice and give you insight on how to live a holistic healthy yoga lifestyle. We will also share our personal yogi life with you on and off the mat - including how yoga guides us, how we interact with our family and friends, what we eat, and what lifestyle choices we make.
Practice Yoga, Earn Points
You will also earn 'Reward Points' and be encouraged to practice every day. Your reward points can be redeemed on our online shop or put towards a good cause to help change the world.
OmStars is a virtual online community rooted in the spiritual path of yoga. In Sanskrit this is called Sangha. We will help you create a sense of family and community by sharing our own inspiration, strength and hope on how we live a yogi life.
“Yoga brought me to a place of peace that I didn’t know existed. It was through yoga I found my inner light that lead me on a path to finding my true calling and purpose." – Kerri Verna
Practice & Insight
OmStars Practice and Insight courses help curate your yoga journey. Whether you are a total beginner, looking to heal chronic pain, studying the Yoga Sutras, trying to master a handstand, or searching for something deeper, we have created a series of courses to work with you every step of the way.
Wellness & Culture
Here you will find our nutritious plant-based recipes created by us and some of the top vegan chefs from around the world. You will also have access to tips on what we do on a daily basis to live our best yogi life.
Full seasons of fun, entertaining content that show what it means to be modern yogi await. You'll see what the yoga lifestyle is for busy mom Kerri, and also travel the world with Kino. We will share our personal life, what we eat, where we travel and what inspires us.
OmStars holds a unique system to help drive your practice. We will track your practice minutes, like air miles, so you can use them to reward yourself in our online store or to help change the world by donating them to charity.
Earn one point for every 15 minutes of practice with a unique profile that tracks and logs your practice hours and gives you reminders to come back to your mat as well as daily status reports.
