Yoga is something that can be considered very versatile because it can be a form of relaxation and meditation, but it can also be a way to keep fit and exercise. 

Yoga can even help deal with certain health concerns. A 2017 study found that yoga can help ease depression symptoms

Given that it can serve more than just one purpose, it is no wonder that yoga has been a favorite among many people. 

You can practice yoga at any place, and anytime that is convenient for you, and yoga mats are pretty convenient to bring around as well. But do you know what else is convenient? It is a fact that there are a variety of yoga apps available for both iOS and Android!

Here are some of the yoga apps available for download on the App Store and Play Store:

Yoga apps cater to every kind of yogi out there, including beginners. One such example of newbie-friendly yoga apps is Yoga for Beginners. 

 According to an article by Women's Health, the exercises in Yoga for Beginners are not very challenging, making them perfect for newbie yogis or those who have not done yoga in a long time. 

Track Yoga is another beginner-friendly yoga app that provides "a wide variety of classes tailored to improve your mental health, de-stress and work on your flexibility," according to an article by Cosmopolitan

Believe it or not, yoga can be pretty intense, too, especially when coupled with other exercises and workouts. If that is your kind of yoga, one of the yoga apps you should download is DDP Yoga. 

It may surprise you that the person who came up with DDP Yoga is actually a professional wrestler with the ring name Diamond Dallas Page. According to an article by Healthline, DDP Yoga "combines yoga techniques with other fitness approaches, such as cardio, calisthenics, and nutritional guidance."

Another example of yoga apps that can provide variety to your fitness routine is the Peloton app. According to the article by Cosmopolitan, the classes that you will find in the Peloton app are actually live-streamed from their studios. It also has a one-month free trial, so you can get a taste of the workouts first before you decide on whether or not you want that membership.

Yoga poses are not exactly the easiest things to get right instantly. More often than not, it is easy to end up as a pile of limbs on your yoga mat because you lost your balance. If nailing yoga poses is something you want to focus on, try downloading Yoga Poses for Beginners. 

Its name pretty much gives away what the app is all about, but it also offers "a 30-day workout option, health stats tracker, and options for relaxation or exercise," according to the article by Healthline. 

If you want a yoga app that can help you string all the yoga poses you want to do into one routine, Yoga Studio: Mind & Body is one of the yoga apps you must download. All you have to do to get that routine together is pick the poses you want to do from the library, and the app will take care of the rest.
