Today we are living in a fast moving world, where people have lots and lots of stress of living life, with no time to enjoy or have some quality time. Even if people take some time out of their busy schedule they either watch T.V or play games on mobile, these things might relax you a bit but does not provide the complete inner peace or relaxes your body. Meditation or “Dhyana” is an extreme form of concentration. It allows your mind to focus on one thing and detaches you from all worldly things. It gives you complete inner peace and refreshment required to do the daily task. It increases deep sleep and with variety of Meditation Music it feels you relaxing.
Therefore developing Yoga and meditation application is a great idea looking into today’s scenario. People have started to realize the importance of meditating and doing yoga to stay fit and fine. In the world of mobile technology people prefer to do yoga by watching some videos and practice them. I think it is a correct opportunity to develop yoga and meditation app which helps people meditates, do yoga and various other things virtually.

1) Detailed voice and visual instruction guides you through every pose, including each inhalation and exhalation.
2) Beautifully illustrated pose images with correct posture and alignment.
3) Dictionary of poses containing the descriptions and benefits of each pose.
4) Smooth and easy procedure to register. Integrated with various social networking sites for easy registration.
