Sivananda Yoga, after teachings of Swami Sivananda, is a non-proprietary form of hatha yoga in which the training focuses on preserving the health and wellness of the practitioner.
Sivananda Yoga teachers are all graduates of the Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training Course, and students widely range in age and degrees of ability. Unlike Ashtanga, Vinyasa yoga's more athletic program involving Bandhas, Sivananda training revolves around frequent relaxation, and emphasizes full, yogic breathing.
A session of training typically starts with every practitioner resting in Savasana, and begin with Kapalabhati and Anuloma Viloma, preceding rounds of Sūrya namaskāra, before the standard program of the 12 basic asanas. A session averages 90 minutes, and the traditional program may be followed flexibly by the instructor, allowing for some variation.
With this yoga app, we've re-imagined the common yoga poster and turned it into something interactive and worthy of your smart phone.
★★★ Inside you'll find multiple yoga sequences taking you step by step through different versions of the sun salutation.
★★★ An easy-to-use overview tab that shows all the poses in the sequence laid out, in sequence, just like in a yoga poster.
★★★ World class support - we're constantly improving our apps and, remember, this is only Version 1.0. If there are other features you'd like to see, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: We really appreciate your feedback and value your input whenever possible. But, unfortunately, we can't respond to your reviews directly in the App Store. Please email us if you have any questions. You can reach us at email@example.com
Lovely Yoga App!
I'm not as familiar with Sivanda specifically, but I've been doing doing different types of yoga for 15 years and recognize a lot of these poses. I really like their Sun Salutation varieties. I've enjoyed Luminada's other apps and this one is just as awesome as all of the others.
Nice alternative to Hatha
I've been curious to try out Hatha, but heard Sivanda is about the same. I'm just getting my feet wet. I've had good experiences with Luminada apps, so I thought I'd go for this one too. It lives up to the high standards I've found in the other apps.
I had high expectations for this, because I've been a huge fan of past lumina apps. This exceeded my already high expectations-- it's a great app!
