Pocket Yoga

Not strictly a running app, Pocket Yoga is (obviously) a yoga app, but it is easily the top yoga app in the marketplace. And, the convenience of having a yoga guide in your pocket might encourage more runners to actually do the stretching that they know they should.

For $2.99, Pocket Yoga includes a number of illustrations and instructions for each pose. You can either choose to whip out your phone and do a few poses, or select one of 27 full sessions, based on difficulty and length, and follow along.

Incredibly simple, the app has illustrations and explanations of each pose, as well as a dictionary for all those yoga terms. The sessions are narrated and designed by yoga instructors.

Plus, it’s cheaper than an actual yoga class.
