Almost good, difficult for beginners
I liked the idea, but it’s a bit hard to follow for beginners like me. I’d appreciate a mode for teaching you what to do in heaps more detail, such as where in the body to expect sensation, what the pose is meant to be doing, what *not* to do (e.g. explain common bad habits), and more detail on how to transition between poses. I’d also like a warning for when the speed is about to increase.
My legs don’t straighten (yet) so I’d appreciate modifications for inflexible people.
The UI has some defects where it doesn’t update the text properly, and often I have to select some text to see what it actually says (otherwise I am looking at the old text). The UI layout could be a bit more polished, e.g. being able to scroll through the practise preview without losing the start button and options, etc.
Other than those, the app is graphically quite appealing and it makes me want to use it (otherwise I wouldn’t have written all the above :D)
