Getting to your yoga class can sometimes be time consuming and expensive. We all know that our busy lives don’t always make time for the much needed T.L.C. Here to save the day, and your tight hamstrings, are some yoga apps that really tick the right boxes when it comes to convenience and ease of use for some clarity of mind. With HD videos and detailed sequencing, there’s something to suit everyone’s inner-yogi, whether you’re in your hotel room or have 10mins to spare during your lunch break. So if you find yourself in Forward Fold in the elevator on the way to a meeting, why not try one of these 4 yoga apps next time.

4 yoga apps you need in your smartphone

1Yoga Studio –  $5.99

3Pocket Yoga App – $4.49 (Bianca’s go-to for when she’s travelling)

A soothing voice will guide you through these wonderfully narrated classes, designed to recreate the experience in an actual studio. A comprehensive, detailed dictionary is always at hand to explain poses and deepen the practice. This app is definitely a favourite at Sporteluxe HQ, because it doesn’t even require network connectivity to work, leaving you with zero excuses to hit the mat. Connect to your TV at home for the full-screen experience.

Wherever you find yourself on the yoga journey, there’s something to suit every level. You can customize your own class, or choose from one of the 45 predefined programs with HD video instructions. It even features 3D muscle images for every pose so you truly understand the how’s and why’s of every pose. Described as a beautiful app that lets you tailor the class to your goals and needs, we love the sense of community behind the app, letting you track, share and comment on all your practices.
