Yoga helps burn calories, strengthen the core, increase flexibility.
As the International Yoga Day approaches on June 21, there are several apps and online platforms to help yoga enthusiasts boost their health in the absence of a trained guide.
Some apps also offer integrated services with Apple health app and other Android devices.
For the beginners, the Breathe app on Apple Watch guides you through a series of deep breath and reminds to take time to breathe daily. Choose how long you want to breathe, then let the animation and gentle taps help you focus.
Pocket Yoga app is like an instructor in your pocket, owing to detailed voice and visual instructions that guide you through each pose and every breath.
Over 200 illustrated images show you the correct posture and alignment, and an included dictionary describes the benefits and techniques of various poses.
"Daily Yoga" app offers over 500 asanas, more than 200 guided classes of yoga, pilates, meditation, over 50 workout plans and top coaches' workshops that suit people from the beginner to advanced level. "Daily Yoga" integrates with the Apple Health App.

"Mindfulness means living in the present moment. By simply being aware of this tendency of the mind, we can actually save ourselves from getting stressed or worked up and relax the mind," Mumbai-based yoga expert Natasha Noel told IANS.
"What I really like about the Breathe app and about any kind of technique that is accessible to people, is that they do give people who might not otherwise give meditation a try, a sense of how powerful those techniques can be," Noel added.
