This iis a great app but....
It seems to have a lot of bugs, like when you click on the "Watch Tara" button....you just hear Tara there is no video though clearly there was meant to be so you are sitting there listening to hear explain how to do a yoga pose that you cannot see unless you want her and Deepak Chopra to compete with talking. After listening to Tara you can than go through the routine listening to Deepak Chopra tell you all the health benifits of the pose....just not how to do it, you get to guess based off the freeze frame pictures what is happening. This app also has a tendency to randomly close on you, you could be downloading the audio and then it will close, you could be doing a routine and in the middle it will close. Are you getting the picture that at any time this app will close? Otherwise it is a wonderful source of information on what yoga poses you should do based on the results you want, it has some nice routines lined up and timed for you to do. If the bugs get fixed I would happilly change this review to a 5 stars.
Please please fix this app!!!!
I love using this app for my daily yoga routine. It's great that I can build my own routines to work on exactly what my body needs. I like that the poses are called out so I don't have to think about what comes next but just follow along and concentrate on my form and breath. And the videos are great for making sure I remember how to correctly get into and out if each pose.
But here are the problems:
1. Building an hour long routine is tedious, which is fine, except that once you have made a routine you can't go back and edit it. If you want to change just one or two poses you have to build a new routine from scratch. Ugh.
2. Crashing. Probably 50% of the time the app crashes half way through the routine. This wouldn't be that bad if it was quick to start it up again... but it isn't. You have to skip forward through each pose to get you back to where you were. If you just click on the pose you ended on it opens that pose only and does not continue the routine. Every time there is a pose that is held for a while after the pose is called out I find myself looking up to check whether the silence is because the pose is supposed to be held that long or if it has crashed again. Not very relaxing. Actually VERY distracting.
I really don't want to give up on this app. Every time I see updates for my apps I am crossing my fingers and hoping to see an update for this one.
Please fix! :) I would give this app 4 or 5 stars if it worked
Great, except for the glitch...
I love this app. For someone who is new to yoga, and works full time, it's nice to have a professional yoga instructor at my finger tips whenever I feel like working out. It's very easy to use, and when I actually go to yoga classes, the instructor rarely corrects my posture, so it's fair to say that it's pretty accurate to an actual class. This is my only beef.... The app is constantly shutting itself down. I'll be half way through a down dog pose, when I hear the music cut out, and it exits back to my home screen. It does this about twice every time I do my 30 min routine. So if you're willing to put up with having to reopen the app, and scroll through your routine one pose at a time to get back to your place every 15 mins, then I highly recommend this app.
