Best Yoga Apps For Your Smart Phone

Hi all and welcome to Yoga Moldova!  Given my background as a Yoga instructor it’s only fitting that my first post should be about Yoga.  Whether you are a veteran yogi or have just started your first class, these apps are for you!

Yoga Studio

Going on vacation or can’t make it to your yoga studio?  With the Yoga Studio app, you can bring your class with you wherever you go!  With over 60 HD video yoga and meditation classes, it’s like having your own personal instructor in the comfort of your own home.  Each class is categorized by duration and skill level so no matter your ability or time restraints there is a class for everyone.  Another great feature is the option to create your own classes from the app’s library of poses.  This allows you to personalize your routine to help get the most out of your workout.

Take the yoga studio with you wherever you go with these apps!

Pocket Yoga

Much like the Yoga Studio app, Pocket Yoga features instructional videos that help teach you the different poses and breathing techniques.  Where they differ however is in the presentation.  Pocket Yoga features animated video (as opposed to Yoga Studio’s HD video) as well as in depth text descriptions for each pose.  These text descriptions are a helpful guide on proper form as well as the benefits of each pose.  Another cool feature of Pocket Yoga is it has full integration with the apple watch.  You can browse the pose database, look up descriptions and even watch the instructional videos all from your wrist.

Universal Breathing – Pranayama

Deep, diaphragmatic breathing is one of the most important aspects of yoga.  For some, mastering the different breathing techniques is more difficult than mastering the poses. If you’re one of these people, or if you just want to improve upon your deep breathing exercises, then this is the app for you.  The Pranayama app comes standard with helpful displays that instruct you on when to inhale/exhale and for how long.  There are also multiple difficulty settings and progression tracking to help you master the art of breathing.

Down Dog

Tired of running through the same routine over and over again?  Break up the monotony with the Down Dog app!  Creating a custom yoga workout has never been easier. Based upon parameters such as duration, level of difficulty, and pace, Down Dog will generate a custom routine just for you.  With a wide range of yoga poses in the app’s library you can be sure that you’ll have a new experience each time you use it.

Kids Yogaverse

Introducing children to a healthy lifestyle is extremely important, especially nowadays with childhood obesity on the rise.  And what better way to ensure that your kids are getting the exercise they need than by teaching them yoga?  The award winning Kids Yogaverse apps are designed specifically for young children.  These apps aim to teach simple poses through rich storytelling and interactive characters.  Your kids will learn several different yoga poses and relaxation techniques all while having fun!
