Namaste! Yoga for everybody

Are you down with downward dog? Apps to suit all kinds of yogi.

Yoga is for everyone. Far more than just a bit of stretching on a mat, yoga is known as ‘moving meditation’ – great for the mind, while working your body hard and building strength too.

Whether you’ve never before heard the word ‘vinyasa’ or you’ve been perfecting your Asana for years, there are great yoga apps to suit your needs. Get ready for improved strength, better posture and greater flexibility.
