Down Dog keeps yoga app free during pandemic

With millions of Americans waking up to a new quarantined world of working from home, businesses shut down, restaurants, movie theaters, bars and gyms shuttered, some companies are attempting to make the populations’ social and work distancing at home more pleasant. Down Dog is one of those companies. Today, the highest-rated app for practicing yoga at home, announced that it made its Yoga, Yoga for Beginners, HIIT, Barre, and 7 Minute Workouts Android and iOS apps completely free until April 1, 2020.

“Due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, many people are avoiding gathering in large groups, including yoga studios and other fitness spaces. We believe that stressful times like these are precisely when people need wellness practices the most, and we are committed to doing our part to help out,” says Carlos Ormachea, co-founder of Down Dog.
