The Yoga New Tab is a browser extension that promises users to provide them with images and instructions on how to complete some popular yoga poses. While some users might find this useful, we don't advise everyone to attempt to follow the Yoga New Tab's instructions since doing yoga is not as easy as it may sound. People who have experience doing this may find Yoga New Tab to be useful since it is capable of providing some intriguing yoga images and lessons. However, if you are not happy with the Yoga New Tab's presence and the fact that this extension forces you to use a 3rd-party new tab page associated with MyStart.com, then we advise you to remove the Yoga New Tab from your computer.

This extension is not featured in software bundles so that the only way to get it on your computer is to download it from the Chrome or Firefox official extension repositories directly. The new tab page that the Yoga New Tab promotes is a sub-domain of MyStart.com, which has been customized to meet the needs of the Yoga New Tab users. Apart from the yoga images and articles, the new tab page also features a search field that allows users to execute searches through Google or Yahoo and a collection of quick links to popular Web destinations. It also includes a calendar, a customizable to-do list, and a chill out playlist for yoga exercises.

The Yoga New Tab is completely safe, and users who are happy with it should not hesitate to keep using it. However, if you are tired of using Yoga New Tab's page or if you want to just get back to your regular new tab page, then you may need to remove the Yoga New Tab to achieve the desired result. This program is classified as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) by big names in the cyber security industry, and using a suitable security tool should help you eliminate the Yoga New Tab's files automatically. This also can be done by simply uninstalling the application manually via the Web browser's settings dashboard.
