Let’s have a look to 5 of the Best ones so if you are thinking about starting the practise, you can pick one and start your journey into wellness and a more fulfilled life.

Getting fit, losing weight, and starting a healthy lifestyle are three of the outcomes that Asana Rebel promises. This German app launched in 2015 mixes yoga and fitness and allows you to search for workouts by goals, duration or intensity. 

It is the perfect option for those who, in addition to improving flexibility, breathing and toning the body, want to do a little cardio. 

Of course, although they indicate that it is free, the truth is that you have to pay as soon as you download it. You’ll need to go through some questions to determine what are your goals. 

They’ll ask your height, your current weight and the weight you want to achieve and so on until you can get a personalised plan and price.

The twelve-month program costs around $80, but different rates apply for shorter periods of stay. It is available, not only in English but other languages too and has already exceeded ten million downloads.

Down Dog has thousands of reviews on the App Store and is one of the most popular apps (and highest rated: 4.9 out of 5). Among its virtues, it stands out that it is perfect both for beginners (they offer a three-day introduction to the discipline) and for the most experienced yogis. 

With its 60,000 training combinations it would be impossible to repeat the same class twice, so boredom is ruled out. In addition, it includes six different instructor voices so that each user can choose which one is more relaxing or pleasant. 

Although your subscription costs $7.99 per month, it is worth considering the value you are getting compared to in-person classes which, are obviously a better option.

However, this is the best way to get started and encourage anyone to practice sports from home to give it a go and get used to it. It is available in different languages as well.

Adriene Mishler, who has more than 6 million subscribers on her YouTube channel, Yoga with Adriene is the person behind this option. 

She is one of the pioneers in online teaching of this discipline since in 2012 she began to share her knowledge in video form. 

This App, Find what feels good, is an extension of that Universe in which he has earned a great reputation thanks to his detailed explanations and her advice to adapt the exercises according to the level, the mood or the available time that you have available.

You can download the app for free and try it out for a week (after that it costs $9.99 per month).

Over 500 asanas and over 500 guided yoga classes (also other disciplines like Pilates and meditation) and over 70 exercise plans. Daily Yoga is probably the largest yoga library available on the web and one of the most downloaded yoga apps. 

Not only is it possible to choose the intensity of each exercise according to your needs, but it also allows you to ask questions of the best yoga experts from around the world through the Apple Health application

If you have a hard time choosing which class you want to take (because there are so many available), Daily Yoga helps you out by providing a suggested class every day. 

It also allows activity monitoring with the Apple Watch and offers routines from five minutes to 70 to adapt to all needs. It only costs $5.99 per month.

They call it the Yoga Bible for a reason.

This is a different option, Pocket Yoga is not personalised since it started as an animation instead of a teacher who guides the explanations and classes but they have introduced now ‘The teacher of the Week’ were they feature a real person. 

The most interesting thing is that it contains over 200 illustrated postures and an extensive dictionary that describes each one and its benefits. 

The best thing about it and why is suggested? Allows you to change the default music to your own playlist and gives you the freedom to practice anytime and anywhere since it does not require internet connectivity to use it! 

It is only in English, but it is intuitive and easy to follow. Its price makes it the cheapest option as it charges a one time fee of $2.99 then you are able to view all of the content forever! 

This makes it an affordable option that offers a variety of classes to stretch out your body and make you feel at peace.
