My new favorite health app is “Daily Yoga” which includes various yoga workouts that range from 10 to 30 minutes.

Special Features:
  • A video plays to show all the movements while you do the workout and the exercises are explained in detail.
  • It is not just single poses but rather short yoga “classes” that take you through a series of movements to get a full workout.
  • There is a free version that has several workouts included and a pro version that has even more.
