Everybody knows about Yoga. It’s super popular and it’s a decent workout for those who don’t like weights or running. You can do it at home with proper video (or text) instruction and the equipment isn’t overly expensive for beginners. However, getting into Yoga is quite challenging. There are a lot of ways to do it and tons of instructors out there to choose from. We can help make it a little bit easier. Here are the best yoga apps for Android!
5 Minute Yoga
Price: Free / $1.99 per month / $5.99 per year / $8.49
5 Minute Yoga is one of the simpler yoga apps. It focuses on short, five minute sessions of yoga. The app also features daily reminders, a timer, and slightly different exercises every day. Video tutorials would’ve been nice. However, the pictures and descriptions are perfectly fine in a pinch. Plus, it doesn’t require tons of your data to stream the video so there is a good thing about not having videos. It requires a subscription for all of the content. The subscription goes for $1.99 per month or $5.99 per year. Alternatively, a lifetime pass is available for $8.49 as a single payment. We liked that a lot.
Price: Free / $7.99 per month / $49.99 per year
Down Dog is a competent yoga experience. It boasts an above average experience for all levels of yoga. Additionally, it has customizable session lengths, various types of workouts, levels, and more. Some additional features include Google Fit support, beginner’s classes, offline support, and voice guidance as well as music during sessions. We liked almost everything about this app. However, it does get rather pricey with its subscriptions. A monthly subscription runs $7.99 per month with yearly subscriptions for $49.99.
Price: Free / $14.99
Simply Yoga is a, well, a simple yoga app. You can set it for 20, 40, and 60 minute workouts. The app also includes over 30 poses, three pre-defined workouts, audio instructions, video tutorials, and more. The free version contains some simple exercises while the premium version expands to more difficult routines. You also get over 60 poses, six pre-defined workouts, and some other extras if you go pro. The app is either free or $14.99. It seems expensive, but most competitors use a subscription service that adds up to much more.
Price: Free with in-app purchases / $2.99 per month / $19.99 per year
Track Yoga is another really decent yoga app. It offers courses and sessions for beginner, intermediate, and advanced yoga fans. Additionally, the app includes HD video content, a pose library, and the opportunity to preview sessions before actually starting them. It even has a bunch of freestyle workouts. The app also utlizies a Kriya system similar to Pocket Yoga’s karma system. The points unlock various exercises. You can buy Kriya points or earn them by using the app. There is also an optional subscription that unlocks everything.
Price: Free / Course costs vary
Udemy was not our first guess when it came to yoga apps. However, there is actually quite a bit of yoga content here. Even a cursory search gave us dozens of results. There are courses for things like seven day yoga challenges, managing back pain, and even some hybrid yoga courses that mix yoga with more traditional exercise. The courses can get expensive. However, there is a lot of unique content here as well. Whether or not it’s right for depends on what you’re looking for and what you’re willing to spend. If it helps, buying a course once gives you basically unlimited access to it forever.
Yoga Daily Fitness
Yoga Daily Fitness is one of the better free Yoga apps. It’s a simple app with simple features. You get a variety of exercises, poses, and even a 30-day Yoga program to follow. Each pose comes with an image to show how it works along with a written description of how it’s suppose to feel when you perform the exercise. Nothing about this app screams flashy and we actually kind of like that. It does have a few bugs here and there, but nothing too serious. It is a free app with advertising. We would’ve liked a way to remove the ads with a purchase, but the ads aren’t all that intrusive. This is a good one for Yoga fans on a budget.
Price: Free / $3.99 per week
This one is a fairly basic yoga experience. That doesn’t make it bad, though. It features HD videos, over 100 poses, a pose search, various classes, and more. The app also boasts classes for beginners, intermediates, and experts. Classes range from ten minutes to 30 minutes each. There are even some scheduling and logging features. Some users complain about videos not always working properly, but that seems to be an intermittent bug. The free version of this is perfectly perfunctory for beginners and intermediates. They charge an outrageous $3.99 per week for all of the programs, exercise routines, and poses. We would’ve preferred a monthly subscription, but the free version is good for beginners at least.
Price: Free / $1.99 per month / $19.99 per year
Yoga Studio is a popular option for yoga apps. It features a large library of poses, over 70 yoga and meditation classes, HD video, and a lot more. The app supports sessions between ten and 60 minutes long. You can also customize them. Some other features include scheduling and tracking support, a pose search, pose blocks, Chromecast support, and more. This app was a single purchase. However, they recently transitioned to a subscription model. We’re not a fan of that. However, the subscription is cheaper than many competitors. That’s a small concession, but at least there is one.
Price: Free / $12.99 per month
YouTube is good for basically everything. That includes yoga. There are hundreds of yoga-centric channels out there. For instance, Yoga With Adrene is a fairly popular and active channel with some great yoga videos. You can find full classes that range from a few minutes to well over an hour. It’s also a good app to find music for your exercises. YouTube is also completely free and that makes it one of the better yoga apps for those on a budget. YouTube Premium is available for $12.99 per month. That lets you download videos for offline use and it also removes ads. Both are excellent features for practicing yoga offline or avoiding ad breaks.
Whatever yoga gear shops you like
Price: Free / Gear costs money
Eventually, yoga enthusiasts may need gear. There are plenty of options for this. Brick-and-mortar stores like Walmart, Target, etc should have the basics and they also have mobile apps. Some enthusiasts seem to like Lululemon quite a bit. Sporting goods stores often have yoga gear as well. Let’s not forget the heavy-hitting online retailers like Amazon as well. There are tons of places to get good yoga gear and most of them have mobile apps. Those apps are usually free.
