Top excuses for not doing yoga:
- I don’t have the time
- I don’t have the time right now
- Yoga classes are expensive
- Yoga classes are not in my house/bed
- My yoga pants are in the laundry
- The other yogis judge me because my arms tremble
Worry not! Yoga apps allow you guided yoga practice anytime, anywhere, and at a fraction of the cost of a yoga studio (AND you can take a break without shame when your arms are trembling).
The most popular option on the App Store currently is Yoga Studio:
Yoga Studio is designed to simulate the experience of actually being in a studio: A soothing voice guides users through classes set to music and even gives instructions for when to inhale/exhale. Yoga Studio offers 65 video classes ranging from 10-minute Beginner Flexibility to 60-minute Advanced Strength. Or, you can create your own custom classes using their pose database. There are several in-app music options to choose from, or you can listen to music through other apps (iTunes Radio, Pandora, etc.) during a class. You can also schedule classes to your calendar, a convenient feature for setting the intention and making the time. For iPhone and iPad only. ($3.99)
Although there are many free yoga apps to choose from, they’re of noticeably lower quality. It’s worth $4 to invest in something that is more useable and helpful.
(And remember this when it gets hard.)
