Down Dog | Great Yoga Anywhere

Offers in-app purchases
Why we love this
  1. 1This fluff-free app simulates a studio experience, with best-in-class instruction for all levels
  2. 2Choose your difficulty level, practice length, and sequence type (introductory, quick flow, restorative, and more)
  3. 3Enjoy an always-changing practice: You’ll experience a new sequence during each session
Down Dog’s high-quality videos illustrate each pose (with optional captions in Sanskrit or English), alongside helpful audio. Customize sessions down to the soundtrack, and skip songs or poses with a tap. Pro subscribers can “boost” a focus area (like flexibility) and choose between more verbal instruction or a more meditative practice.

Offers in-app purchases
Why we love this
  1. 1Workout warriors will be right at home with Asana Rebel’s fitness-minded video yoga practice
  2. 2View workouts by benefit (like “Get in Shape” or “Breathe & Relax”), body focus, intensity, and more
  3. 3A stylish interface makes it fun to browse classes and collections like “Hack Your Senses” and “Tight & Toned”
If you’re motivated to lose weight or get fit (those are the only goals you can choose from), you’ll appreciate Asana Rebel’s unabashed focus on fat-burning and strength-building. Each day, you’ll get two personalized workout suggestions, though you can always choose other classes. Be warned that free material is scarce, and the upgrade offers are persistent.

Yoga Studio: Mind & Body

Offers in-app purchases
Why we love this
  1. 1Take classes based on the areas you want to focus on, or create your own, pose by pose
  2. 2Explore collections like “Desk Series,” “Deep Relaxations,” and “Yoga for Mental Health”
  3. 3Hone in on the details with a library of poses, featuring written step-by-steps, benefits, and modifications
Clear the clutter with Yoga Studio’s straightforward (if borderline stark), essentials-centered classes, several of which are taught by famed teacher Rodney Yee. Custom classes – for which you can combine poses and “blocks” (groups of poses) – are a great bonus, though they lack verbal instruction.

Why we love this
  1. 1Explore any and every type of yoga for free, with videos of varying length for all levels
  2. 2Take your pick of classes from yoga superstars and local teachers around the world
  3. 3Subscribe to your favorite teachers’ channels, and create playlists to organize your go-to classes
With no subscriber-only content to block your flow, YouTube is perhaps the easiest way to jump right into a new practice… if you don’t let the endless options and pre-video ads (removable with Premium) derail you. We love hopping between videos of old masters like B.K. Iyengar and YouTube sensations like Adriene Mishler.
Why we love this
  1. 1Discover and book studio yoga classes and workshops for when you’re in the mood to move with others
  2. 2Check the schedule of your favorite studio (or teacher!), or browse all upcoming classes in your area
  3. 3Find intro deals and filter for last-minute discounts (look for “flexible pricing”)
Even if you’ve never downward dogged, Mindbody can make it easier to commit to your practice. Read studio and class reviews, bookmark your favorites, and view all your upcoming classes in one place. Note that Mindbody’s network, while quite comprehensive in some communities, may not include all of the studios in yours.
