For its apparent benefits, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by yoga. And though it’s not a cure-all, getting your peace of mind is just a prospect that’s too hard to resist. In a world where the media is trumpeting violence and chaos everyday.
It’s no coincidence that the both Android and iOS hemispheres have been flooded with a plethora of Yoga-companion apps. However, it’s important that you keep the best proven programs and do away with apps which may come strong with big claims yet offer no track record to boot. Much like a reliable iPad mini keyboard case to an i-tablet, the right apps will help facilitate the “better you” to emerge. Though it may just approximate a yoga instructor, an app will certainly have an advantage not otherwise found with having another human to show you the way.
For best results, it is recommended you do your stuff on a half-empty stomach and never a full one. Abstain from food or take a light meal an hour or so before the routine. And of course, mind your breathing.
