Apple holds Activity Challenges for various holidays and events throughout the year, and began offering awards for International Day of Yoga back in 2019.

Any yoga workout will fulfill the requirement, as long as you select the yoga workout type from the Workout app on the Apple Watch or use an app that adds yoga workouts to the Health app. Apple's Fitness+ service, available for $9.99 per month, offers built-in yoga workouts that you can do.

The wonderful human and anti-cultist J. Krishamurti debunked all the cult beliefs about yoga that were invented by modern people who turned this practice into a capitalist industry complete with woo woo magical thinking products and psuedoscientific beliefs. Even worse these days so many yoga teachers will try to brainwash with conspiracy theories about space lizards and extra dimensional matrix elf people.

The real yoga can only be practised if people let go of all this magical thinking about kundalinis and chakras and dimensions. Then you go back to the root. It should be about physical health and practical thinking.

In theory, you can, but I'd rather earn my award as intended. Call me silly, but I want the award to have a value at least, Lol.
As @BornAgainMac pointed out, lying down is one of the Yoga poses. You can get it authentically that way. ?

I didn’t do yoga before Apple Fitness+ existed. Their yoga workouts always give me a great stretch, and help relax muscles I didn’t realise were taut.

Always feel better physically and mentally after doing one of the yoga workouts (and others), so I really love the service – among the best things Apple have done recently.

The award and stickers are nice to collect; they always look better on device than in these articles.
Yeah, I had never done it either and as an older guy (post-50), my flexibility is starting to suffer with age, and I gave it a shot recently because I'd injured myself doing my normal cardio and needed something different to do while I recovered. I enjoy it. Don't do it every day but try to get one or two in a week now as I can. It certainly has helped stretch me out.
