Can you do a downward dog? How are your handstands? If neither are in your fitness repertoire, don’t worry. Asana Rebel may sound like it’s for dedicated yoginis, but in fact, it’s a workout app for people of any fitness level looking for fat loss or to improve flexibility and strength.
So, even if you don’t know how to pronounce adho mukha svanasana (that’s downward dog), this one is for you.
To get full access to all the workouts and fitness programmes, you’ll need to subscribe. After that, you can sign up to a host of programmes that last several weeks, from Fatburn I to Desk Dwellers or Stress Relief. Each workout is easy to follow with creatively-shot videos and audio instructions.
Asana Rebel clearly gets it: we are all busy. If we’re going to commit to a workout plan, it has to fit in with our lives. When the app asks you to train five times a week, it sounds demanding. But Asana Rebel offers everything from a 6 minutes of feel-good stretches to in-depth sessions of 20-30 minutes.
Each is short enough that you won’t find yourself wanting to skip them in favour of an evening in front of the TV. And if you do fancy something more intensive, just opt into an additional session.
