Established in 2007, The Indian Telegraph is a multi award winning digital media company based in Australia.

In the social distancing times when group yoga in the neighbourhood park would not be a great idea on the International Yoga Day, here are some interesting yoga apps that can be tried in the comforts of your home.

According to Nidhi Mohan Kamal, an Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga trainer and certified strength fitness trainer, yoga apps can help people, especially the middle-aged and the elderly, stay fit amid the Covid-19 lockdown in India.

“Online videos and apps can be streamed on your phones or TV screens that give you a step-by-step guidance on different yoga poses,” Kamal told The Indian Telegraph.

To stay fit during the Covid-19 pandemic, people can use iOS apps like YogiFI, Prayoga, AyuRythm, Pocket Yoga and the popular Breathe apps.

According to Kamal, built-in Breathe app on Apple Watch is an excellent way to do pranayama anytime and Apple Watch prompts you to deep breathe throughout the day, especially when your heart rate increases.

“Choose how long you want to breathe, then let the animation and gentle taps help you focus,” she said.

YogiFi app is designed keeping just an “individual” in the mind. The core value proposition of the app is personalisation and holistic wellness.

The key features include 25 ‘freemium’ yoga programmes curated by certified yoga trainers from India and the US, post-session performance assessment and live streaming/offline sessions.

This lockdown has been a huge change and learning for all yoga instructors too.
