Best on-the-go yoga app, but may be confusing for the inexperienced
For the new yoga student, the app may seem quick -- however, Gaiam teaches a Vinyasa based style yoga which is focused on flowing (moving smoothly from pose to pose in accordance with breath rhythm). Flowing does grow much quicker towards the end of the practice, but that is in order to build and improve. But after all, yoga is not 'relaxing stretching' -- yoga is always work. For the student who (mistakenly) thinks that yoga is just about going slowly from pose to pose, this type of yoga will not befit them well. However, the app is indeed limited in its lack of transition explanation, and the fact that the student watching the animated figure does not see how to appropriately get into the next pose -- this is unfortunate, as the sequence of transition is just as important as getting into a pose. Gaiam might also do well to explain more in detail what kind of yoga they teach, and what a 'vinyasa' is. These are the main limitations for the app, but overall, the app is a fun and excellent tool for intermediate and even advanced students to keep up their practice at home and on the go.
BEST APP EVER
I have this app for my i-touch and it is the best app I ever bought.
It's really like being in a class in the privacy of your own home and I actually do Yoga with this. I have it on my i touch and it means I can do it on the go.
You can choose from the full routine, you choose beginner, medium, expert and then you choose the time. But if you want a qucik fix, you can just choose
the type of routine and how many sets.
In addition it has a library of poses that explains which organs and parts of the body the pose helps.
I saw this app for the mac and I just jumped for it - no thinking. Yay!!!!
It's good, simple, and uses flowing poses.
It's a good simple app for yoga. It works well except for the fact that it uses static images. Becuase of this, people think they are to do one pose, then hold, the move to another pose and hold again. However, that is sometimes the case but at the end of the routines there is no holding of the poses. So, one us suppose to be moving from one pose to another to another.
But, since they you static images one doesn't really pick up on that. So, when it seems like it's going to fast, remember that you're just moving from one pose to another.
