My Verdict

Yoga is a free Windows 8 app that lets you learn yoga at home by following detailed step-wise instructions in the app. The poses under various categories are shown as beautiful pictures. However, there is just one pose shown against a number of steps. It is important to do yoga in a proper way, otherwise it can harm your body instead of doing good. This would have been a better app if it had more picture poses against steps. Secondly, the benefits of yoga asanas given in this app are not mentioned anywhere. But, if you have been doing yoga for sometime and have an idea of different asanas and their usefulness, you can try this app.
