The AYUSH Ministry launches the Yoga Locator to help you find yoga instructors, yoga centres and yoga programs around your area. Here’s how to use this and other yoga apps.
Prior to International Yoga Day on June 21, the AYUSH Ministry launched an app that could help in the occurrence of yoga events around the city. The Yoga Locator App also provides a list of yoga training centres and trainers near your place.
The location-based app is available for Android OS and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. App yoga trainers are able to register themselves and reach those who want to do a yoga course.
Yoga Locator: How To Use the App
Yoga instructor uses your location to find yoga instructors, yoga centres and yoga programs around you. All you have to do is open the app and give location access. The app will list all registered yoga instructors and events in your city. Alternatively, you can manually enter the name of your city in the app.
The Yoga Locator shows three options on the home screen – I am a yoga trainer, we are a yoga centre and a yoga event. You can choose an option according to your requirement. Upon entering a category, you will see a list with the name, address, email and mobile number of the trainer/event organizer.
The user interface also shows a button in front of each address in the list. Tapping this button will take you to Google Maps, where you’ll see directions from your location to that address.
Under the “Yoga Events” category, you will also see the time of the event with the alarm icon in front of it. When you tap on it, it will let you add events to your calendar.
So far, there are a large number of test listings on the app under all three categories. If you are a yoga trainer or run a yoga centre, you can register on the app by providing your name/centres name, email id, contact number and address.
According to an official of the Ministry, the Yoga Locator App is permanent. This will inform people about yoga activities happening in the area around them throughout the year, inform the PTI.
