Love it! - This is the only yoga app I've found where the practice really flows from one pose to the next. Most of the other ones are just a collection of disconnected poses. In this one the voice instruction tells you exactly when to inhale/exhale and walks you through every step. It has 3 different difficulty levels: beginner, intermediate and expert. The interface is really nice and easy to navigate. Highly recommended!!!

Review by leemoney

Very disappointing - This was my first yoga app. I bought it based on the reviews and therein lies the problem. There must be a secret review language I don't understand. This program is boring, excruciatingly repetitive and the speaking voice saying the word 'exhale' made me wish I could physically rip the app out and fling it into another dimension. Is this really the best they can do? I would be willing to pay more to supplement my twice weekly yoga classes but feel a little intimidated and underwhelmed now.

Love it! - It really recreates the experience of being in a yoga studio. This is the only yoga app I've found where the practice really flows from one pose to the next. Highly recommended!

Review by kmfulto

I’ve only done it once but... - This app is amazing! Just what I have been looking for. I am always hesitant to pay money for any app, but I think this one will prove to be worth it. I just did a 30 minute session in my study! $5 for unlimited yoga? My cheap butt says, “Yes!”

Version 2.3.1
Review by hettingr

Absolutely essential app - This was one of the very first apps I purchased, with the very first iPhone (so, over 10 years ago). It is absolutely essential to me. I take part in yoga classes sometimes, and that is probably necessary, but there is no other way I can keep the continuity of yoga practice without this app. Generally, I do the beginner or intermediate routines 45 minutes or an hour four or more times a week, usually first thing in the morning. Here are the benefits: I’m in my 60s. My weight always wants to creep up. This aerobic (I guess that’s what you call it) yoga is essential to keeping my weight down. I have degenerative disk disease in my neck, and 20 years ago, I spent much time and $$ with the chiropractor to keep the bad effects (arm numbness, migraines, inability to sleep) in check. Now I control it with these yoga routines. The difference is like night and day. When I stop doing the yoga for more than a few days, the migraines come back. My family and myself have an issue with hammertoes, and paying attention to the position of those toes as I do the routines, flexing them and expecting them to be straight and strong, keeps me from having horrible foot pain and keeps those toes from crossing over themselves. Really. It’s no problem when I do yoga. If I lay off for 5-ish days, the foot pain comes back. I like being limber, and I like the body smoothing and better abs and stomach. I don’t look like one of those “yoga ladies,” but if I don’t do the yoga, I turn into a blob. I have to watch what I eat, and right now, LCHF is working better than just calorie counting. (LoseIt is my other indispensable app.) If I don’t like the weight on my scale in the morning, I can go do the yoga routine and “lose” another half-pound. (I know that’s silly, but in the scheme of things it’s encouraging and the synergy is good.) I like feeling strong and flexible. In my mind, during the routine, I totally connect with the woman on the screen, and this probably carries over into good self-image and posture. Also, this is an app that they don’t keep changing and adding stuff. I appreciate that. I like it the way it is. That said, I have one request: I think I would like to be able to pause and restart it from my apple watch, since I usually do Sun Salutation and Tree, Sea Star and Airplane during the time that the routine does Crow, and I’d like a little more time for that. Many thanks to the creators and updaters of this fine application!!!
