Great Yoga App!

vuannielou

I downloaded this a few weeks ago to help increase my flexibility and overall physical health. I scoured the App Store looking at the different apps and this one seemed to be the best... and it has not disappointed! I’m not a yoga expert by any means, but this app has been great in challenging my body to bend in ways I had not attempted since high school (15 years ago!). The great part about it is that I can stream the sessions on my TV through my AppleTV from my iPhone and see my progress on my AppleWatch. The “teacher” doesn’t include any chit-chat throughout the lesson like other yoga videos I’ve tried; she just says the moves as you make your way though the routine.
Overall, my flexibility has increased, my stress has gone down, and I have been sleeping better. My husband thinks it is a little whacky, but intrigued nonetheless, so I’m hoping he’ll join me one day - he’s not going to have the same metabolism forever! Yogis of all levels, if you’re debating this app, get it!

Really good even for beginner

I read the reviews before downloading...many said that you really needed some amount of yoga experience to use this app well. I disagree. I have never done any yoga, I don't know any terms or any poses. I did a beginner "class" with this app and it was fine. It does move fairly quickly from one pose to the next in a few places and I could not always keep up, but I am guessing that this would be the case in a "real live" class as well. Once I know the names of the poses, it will be easy enough to get where I need to be. When I was slow responding, fine, let it go, I would just jump back in on the next pose.

I am sure my posture was a bit off, at least some of the time; but as long as you can look at the picture and see where your body should be, you should get it right fairly soon. Everything has a learning curve, whether you have someone teaching you or are learning on your own.

I do have a bit of an advantage; I have been a world medalist in a martial art which requires me to get my body in the right position quickly, and to be able to move from one to another randomly, quickly, and accurately. However, the positions required by yoga poses are nothing I have ever done before.

I like this app and would recommend it to anyone who has any interest in yoga.

Love this app. So useful!!!

I do believe that you need some experience with poses, but I like that it still gives you a list to look over which poses there are in yoga. So maybe a beginner can start off by studying the list. I've taken one yoga class, so I did have some knowledge, but not tons. I feel like the beginner stage is a perfect way to challenge a person interested in yoga. Self motivation will push you through if you want to be a yogi. Love love love all of the ways it engages your entire body. I do wish there was a little bit different varieties of routines. There is a lot of repetitiveness, but other than that, it's great! It would be cool if the app offered some type of gift card rewards for getting to a certain level of karma points, that would make it even more motivational, but I love this app!!!
