Oh, the struggle. Practicing yoga at home is great, but it's so difficult to remember every single pose (especially when you're a beginner!). And trying to flip through a book or find a blog post while you're in warrior III — was I supposed to do chair pose before or after this? — is one of the easiest ways to lose your zen. But thanks to a handy new update from Google, that's all about to change.
Google recently released a new feature on their app — available in both the App Store and Google Play totally free of charge — that makes the pose search process easier than ever. All you have to do is open the app, search for the pose you want (you can search for either the common name, such as 'tree pose,' or the traditional Sanskrit name, such as 'vriksasana') and out of 131 options, it will bring it right up. The app not only shows a picture of the pose, but also gives you background info, suggested preparatory and follow-up poses, and a list of the different muscles you're stretching.
Nothing compares to learning yoga from a teacher who knows her stuff, but if you're at home trying to learn the poses by yourself, Google's a pretty good guide. The best part? Google doesn't make you hold said poses for unbearable periods of time.
