Close to Awesome
There is a lot that is great about this app. Visually, it's clean and sleek.
What it's missing are a warm-up sequence and a playlist feature where you could stack up some of the individual workouts to play back to back.
Also, the poses are each explained well and held for a nice length of time. But they don't flow smoothly from one to the next within the workout sequence. So the workout is slightly more jarring than a yoga class should be.
If those things were changed (hint, hint, developers), I would give this app five stars. Even in its current state, it's a good app.
Yoga equals relax+exercise. This app is not yoga. It's just exercise with yoga poses. The whole time I did the workouts, I didn't feel relaxed. That might be because I had NO IDEA what I was supposed to be doing. Yes, the app explained how to do the poses, but the person in the picture should have moved so that I could tell what she was talking about. Reading the reviews it turns out the exercises were bad anyways. The only exercise that felt ok to me (notice it's just ok) was the quick calorie burner thing, but the rest sucked. If you want a REAL yoga app, (Aka relaxation + exercise) try simply yoga.
Absolutely perfect app for a beginner who wants to get reacquainted with the practice of yoga. Great audio and imagery provides clear instruction. Even has a log your progress feature. A+++!
