The best yoga apps for iPhone and Android

Cultivate a healthy mind, body, and soul with the best yoga apps

There’s a new exercise program or diet fad every year. We all want to be healthy, keep our weight under control, and keep those stress levels down to a minimum. If you’re always making promises to yourself that this is the year you will be healthier, but you always seem to end up breaking them, then you might want to try yoga.

Yoga has been with us for as long as we can remember. It isn’t a quick-fix fad. Yoga is more than just another way to exercise. It can be a profound change in the way you live your life. It’s a holistic mind and body workout that mixes stretching, muscle strengthening, meditation, and relaxation.

Are you ready to start making a change today? Say “namaste” to some of the best yoga apps for Android and iOS. If you want to improve your yoga skills, you should also check out Nadi X, the wearable technology that promises to do just that.

Go deeper into your fitness routine and take a look at our picks for the best fitness trackers and the best fitness apps for iPhone and Android.

Down Dog

Down Dog

This is a really nicely designed yoga app for practicing at home, whatever your level. Practices are broken down by type, level, and length, and the interface is easy to get to grips with. The best thing here is the mix of vocal instruction and background music. We like the fact you get a different session every time, but you can subscribe for $8 per month or $50 for a year and set up targeted sessions to focus where you want.

Yoga — Poses & Classes

Yoga - Poses & Classes

Here’s a good yoga app for beginners. This app offers easy to follow instructions for more than 100 different poses. Each one is a downloadable video, so you can pick and choose what you want to try. There are also free classes to help you improve your balance, strength, and flexibility. You can unlock more content with a subscription, but it’s way overpriced at $4 per week or $13 per month. If you subscribe for a year, then it works out at $3 per month, which is a bit more reasonable.
