☺️🌸💜🌸☺️ why did I mess around w/ other apps?
Edit: took away one star. Only can sync data with the Health App. I use this on my iPad so I have to enter the workout manually on my Apple Watch. Apple Health isn't available on the iPad.
I don't know why I messed around so long with other apps. 3 years ago I was a true beginner (also morbidly obese) apparently bought this app & others & became frustrated bc I didn't know what I was doing or I couldn't keep up. Fast forward (50lbs lighter) I have taken ~60 studio yoga classes, then started using another app that was still a bit too advanced & limited, despite using the beginner sessions. After 6 months finally tried this again & it's instructions are exactly like my instructors! Plus sessions to get you prepared for the more advanced poses, also lower back & runner sessions; all of which I need. So many variations available, I regret not trying it again earlier. And way less than the yoga studio's $10/class. One thing I do wish it had was video explaining all the proper postures. I realize it increases the size, but in the studio the instructor having us in the pose & calling out what we needed while holding the pose (feet hip distance, four corners, core engaged, breath, etc) really helped. Reading the glossary while trying to attain proper form is not the same 😕. Still going to buy this app for my novice friends wanting to get into yoga ☺️ 🌸namaste🌸
Great yoga app
About 10 years ago I was advanced and studying to be a yoga teacher, then I encountered a traumatic situation and stopped doing yoga before I finished my course. I decided I wanted to get back into and being that all the free apps had poor reviews, I paid for this cos it seemed pretty legit. I started out with the beginner courses. There are a good range of classes that a geared toward what you'd prefer to work on- flexibility- strength-combination. With a ring levels of intensity which is really great. There are varying levels of time from a quick fix 10 mins, 15mins, 30mins and an hour. I've just started the intermediate level and the guide is very clear, easy to follow with reminders to breathe and position yourself correctly. If you've never done yoga before, you can click on a position and it will tell you how to position yourself and the benefits achieved from the pose- very important!
On a technical side, I would like to see this app sync with the Apple Watch and even be able to play the audio through wireless headphones so I can hit the beach without taking my phone. I haven't reached advanced yet, but this is overall a very well thought out yoga app great for everyone.
Great class alternative
If you've ever been tired of being tethered to a class in order to get a great yoga experience, then this is the app for you. You can download as many classes as you like and they will be available without Wi-Fi. Yoga on the beach? Why not! Yoga while you're traveling? Why not! I have found that this is a great alternative on days when I can't get to the gym, or holidays when the yoga studio is closed. The video instruction will show you Easily how to get from pose to pose, and there are classes for every level beginner through advance. For those of you who are more advanced yogis it is easy to take your variations throughout the classes. Take a look at the poses catalog if you're refining particular positions. My only frustration would be that they don't offer the Sanskrit names of the poses, however in talking to some of the support team it is something that's in process. I would like to see better, more-varied collections of poses in order to create your own classes. No new classes have been added in some time.
