WHAT IS ONETV? ONETV is the only 24-hour fitness, yoga and healthy living channel. The exercise shows – like gentle yoga, Hatha yoga, Kaballah yoga, Padma yoga, hot yoga, pilates, meditation, world dance, bellydance, weight-loss and strength-building workouts – are designed so that viewers can do them in the comfort of their own home with ONETV’s fitness experts. You don’t need a lot of space to perform most of the easy-to-follow moves. It’s the perfect channel for those who aren’t “gym people” or don't have easy access to classes, but want to follow a convenient and regular routine to boost their strength, flexibility and sense of well-being.
WHAT KIND OF PROGRAMS ARE ON ONETV? ONETV’s most popular shows include Healing Yoga hosted by Deborah Devine, a Toronto-based certified yoga instructor who specializes in gentle, restorative yoga for real people with real problems. In each of the 138 episodes, Deborah focuses on a specific chronic condition – from asthma to insomnia, from joint pain to high blood pressure – and curates a yoga class to relieve it. Pilates From The Inside Out trains your muscles and builds your core strength (yes, those abs!), Hot Body, Hot Yoga tackles anxiety and stress with deep relaxation classes, and Audi Gozlan’s Kaballah Yoga combines Hatha yoga with meditations and the mystical secrets of the Hebrew Alphabet.
WHAT ABOUT MORE ACTIVE WORKOUTS? If you really want to sweat, Anjelica’s Dance Workout is a dance aerobic series that will take you through the basics of world dances like Samba, Flamenco and Irish step dance, and Bollyfit is a new style of cardio workout incorporating Bollywood Dance moves into a fitness regimen. Of course, adding weights to routines and floor exercises will increase the intensity!
