Sworkit is available on any device. You can Sworkit on your phone (iOS or Android), on your desktop, and we’re even on Apple TV. You can quickly select your yoga routine and start. If you’re not ready to join a group fitness class or don’t have the money to do so but have always wanted to try, this is a great start. Setting up your workout is as easy as getting your yoga mat ready to go and selecting your workout.
Improve your yoga practice and your life
With any yoga routine you choose, you pick how many rounds you’d like to complete and how long you’d like to hold each pose. Start with longer poses to allow yourself to take your time getting into position and getting a longer stretch. If you’re more advanced and would like to work up a bit more of a sweat, shorten each pose and challenge yourself to a fast paced yoga routine. You have the choice to add poses or delete poses to your workout that you may think will be beneficial. Yoga is for all ages and has become quite popular for communities incorporating cool concepts like beer yoga and goat yoga. Yoga is also shown to improve memory in older adults according to a 2014 study by The Journals of Gerontology. Yoga isn’t meant to push your body harder than it can go. If it hurts, stop. The purpose is to feel a stretch but not to cause pain. Always remember that if it’s too much, you can stop. As long as you’re breathing and doing the movements right, you’re doing great.

Customize your at home yoga routine for you
There’s nothing better than making a workout that makes sense to you but maybe no one else. Want to incorporate your favorite yoga poses in a strength or cardio workout? That’s possible with Sworkit’s custom workout builder. Share your routine with your friends and family and who knows, maybe others will love it too. You don’t always have to be traditional with your workouts. I’m sure the person who suggested goat yoga to the city yogi thought that was a bit untraditional as well but look- everyone loves it!
Sworkit Yoga for Intentional Practice
Maybe the best part about Sworkit Yoga is the ability to really listen to your body and make the practice ultra intentional. Imagine waking up in the morning and knowing exactly what your body wants and determining how it feels. Imagine instead of looking at emails from the moment you wake up and being lost in the online world, finding your breath and feeling more connected to yourself than the internet. How long has it been for you? You can take away all the distractions of the outside world all in the comfort of your own home.
Take a deep breath, open your Sworkit Yoga on any device, and get centered on your mat. The beauty of the at home Sworkit yoga is that you don’t have to worry about what others are doing because your practice is for yourself and can be done alone. You can light a candle, play your favorite transcending music, and enjoy the beauty of being connected. As Laila Zouaki says, “Be acceptant and be persistent. Acceptant of the fact that my body has limits that I should respect rather than fight. Persistent to not give up and push myself to those limits and expand them in the best of my ability.” We think we can all learn to do this in our practice, too.
