One hates to associate yoga with technology, as it requires one to be in a “divine” state completely cut-off from the noisy world out there. But these days, there’s been a new collection of yoga apps that allows one to bring out their inner yogis and be ready to face any hard tasks from “The Taskmaster” at their workplace or at home. Some of the most popular yoga apps are:
1. Office Yoga

It is useful for beginners as well as the experts. The exercises are organized for a varied range of situations such as commute exercises, waking stretches, on-the-phone stretches etc. It comes in colorful illustrations and the exercises can be practiced anywhere-from the conference room to the elevator. One of the best yoga apps out there!
It’s an ideal app for those who want to fit yoga in their busy schedule. It comes in with 50 full yoga-video sessions and an amazing artwork.

5. Yoga Sutras
This app doesn’t show the various meditating poses and techniques, but it is more like a knowledge book, which helps one to gather ideas about the benefits and advantages of yoga and practicing and popularizing it among their family and friends.
