If you are about to step onto your yoga mat for the first time - Welcome! Namaste! You've come to the right place! Yoga for Beginners is an entirely free app created to introduce absolute beginners to the practice of yoga.

Studies have shown that yoga improves flexibility, builds strength, creates muscles tone, fosters relaxation, decreases anxiety and stress, and improves sleep!

Yoga for Beginners offers three beginning yoga practices, each with beautiful video and clear instruction:

Vinyasa Yoga: a series of 3 beginner vinyasa yoga classes where you learn poses like downward facing dog, chaturanga, and how to flow between poses using your breath.

Hatha Yoga: a series of 3 beginner hatha yoga classes that teaches you foundational yoga poses, and moves slower than a vinyasa practice to allow for extra time in each pose to explore.

Restorative Yoga: the gentlest of our intros, a series of 3 beginner restorative practices done entirely on the floor so you can easily stretch your muscles, release tension, and relax.

In each intro series, you will learn breathing practices and yoga poses that will help you cultivate confidence on and off your mat!

Get started in the comfort of your own home. No fancy yoga props required, all you need is your yoga mat! Can't touch your toes? No problem - we'll give you modifications and alternatives along the way!

Select a voice you love from 6 different yoga teachers to guide you through your yoga journey.

In addition to our 6 English speaking voices, all intro series are available in 9 other languages!

Beats that support and augment where you are in your practice, whether you're warming up, building heat, or cooling down.


"I have tried many intro to yoga apps/websites/YouTube channels/books etc, but nothing has been as captivating and easy to follow and enjoy as this. You truly are special. This is exactly what I have been searching for. Thank you." - Hana

"I love it. I'm a total newbie. I tried the intro and it was really clear. I felt like I learned about yoga poses and names I've been wondering about for a while. And best of all as a runner who is fairly muscle bound, my sides and hip flexors opened!" - Victoria

"I have just completed day 1 of your intro to yoga. Based on that one session, I think I have finally found the right yoga application for me. I am impressed with the instruction given, and the high class of video you used." - Ian

Great Refresher

I’ve done yoga on and off for a while now and have loved the Down Dog app, but I felt like I could use a refresh and came across this app. It was the PERFECT refresher before going back to full practice.

A good chunk of my “off” time has been due to injury (not necessarily from yoga, but it has happened as a result of my not being careful or mindful enough during poses). Yoga for Beginners went back to the basics to remind me about proper form in even more detail than Down Dog already does (and DD does a great job with it). I just finished my set and feel far more ready to tackle full practice than I ever have when returning to yoga.

Thank you so much, Down Dog peeps! This has been fantastic!

Amazing app

I’ve never been one to exercise. Always a high metabolism and super skinny with no effort. However, as a recovering addict stuck in isolation during this unprecedented pandemic, I was at great risk for relapse if I didn’t find something I enjoy to occupy my time. Well, I saw an ad that Down Dog was offering a free trial until June 15th so I decided why not? Can’t hurt. I’ve never done yoga before but this was SO easy, I started a month ago and practice for an hour a day, 3 20 minute sessions. I absolutely love it and couldn’t imagine my life without it. I start my morning off early with 20 minutes and it literally melts stress and anxiety away for the entire day. My posture is much better and mentally I cannot believe how much happier I am and how much better I feel. I’m already confident enough to use the beginner level 2, that’s how easy it is to learn. Also I contacted Down Dog and explained to them why I’m not able to pay for the app and they gave me a FREE 6 month subscription AND when that runs out I have a more than half off discount for the entire year!! Only thing I’m worried about is, my chart/info says the yoga sub ends June 14 and the “All Apps” ends December 1. I hope that includes the yoga and that I don’t lose my session history. If anyone from down dog is reading this thank you so much you’ve made a tremendous difference in my life. Could you let me know if I’ll lose the yoga I’m doing now??

Best ever yoga app!!!! Life changing.

I have done yoga before over the years, tried various types, but never committed fully to it because of constant travelling for work. Having this app is the ultimate yoga discovery because I can take my yoga classes with me everywhere I go. Suit it to my flexibility, busy days travel times or schedule. It’s ideal for this day & age to have this app. Not only that, the classes are superb! So well explained and compiled for every level. I feel I am in a private class with excellent video guidance & explanations. It truly is genius! Well done to those who created this amazing professional yoga app. Love it.
