*Yoga is an art and must be learned. The more you practice at home the better you will be. Do not become frustrated if you cannot perform many of the poses. With practice and a little patience you will gain flexibility, strength and inner peace. Just remember to breath.
If you cannot hear the Audio Commentary follow these steps.
Under Settings/Sounds off of the home screen make sure the volume is turned all the way up. Secondly when the App is running make sure the mute button is turned off and using the volume buttons on the side of the phone make sure this is also turned up. This problem is easily fixed. Please if you have any questions or concerns feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
*Touch users: If you can hear background music but the audio commentary will not play go to Settings -> General -> Sounds -> Sound Effects and select "BOTH"
Touch users must use headphones in order to hear commentary.
What's New in Version 4.3
Fixed the bug where the audio jumps to 100 percent after each new pose.
Our apologies to everyone.
Poor audio clipping and no duration option
I purchased this app after falling in love with Yoga Stretch, this however was a disappointment. I could get over the male instructor's harsher voice if it weren't for the fact that the audio is poorly clipped, often leaving me confused as to what is going on, having to get out of my pose, pause the session & check the app. I also was looking forward to setting a duration, rather than having to go through the tedious custom session option, but apparently that feature is no longer included in updated versions?! I feel as if I wasted my 99 cents on this app, though believe there is room foe future improvements.
Great New Year's resolution app
I really enjoy this app! It's simple and easy to understand. There are a couple things I would adjust though. I'd like a way to delete one pose in the middle of my list without having to delete all the ones below it first. I would also like to be able to adjust the volume ratio of the music to the instructor (make the instructor the background sound). More poses would be a plus too! Over all a great app for beginners!
Subpar compared to Yoga Stretch
I've used the Yoga Stretch app for almost a year and a half, I absolutely love it. When I found out there was a Relax version I knew I had to get it. I was disappointed after going through it though. The narrator/instructor sounds choppy, the app goes through the moves too fast, and corpse pose for 24 minutes was too much. If the positions were held for longer and the instructions updated this app would be perfect.
