Psychologies magazine, Editor - “With MFML, I was able to take a class a day - and it’s truly transforming the way that I look and feel”
Tatler - “Log onto the website, choose your style..., duration.. and instructor (some of the world’s best - like Mercedes Ngoh & Jean Hall - are on here). Then, in your own time, in your own house/hotel room/garden, roll out your mat and get sun-saluting. Our Verdict: Mental enlightenment awaits”
The Sunday Times, Style - “do yoga with some of Britain’s best teachers. What sets it apart is the list of nurturing classes (Good Morning, Sleep Well, Yoga for Athletes)”
Harpers Bazaar - “Whether you are a beginner or a more advanced level, have just five minutes a day or 30 to spare, the range of videos is vast and accommodating. Refreshingly, Movement for Modern Life advocates having your usual morning coffee and doesn’t push the latest yoga clothes. Instead it’s simply about practising yoga where you feel comfortable and when you have time to help you relax and unwind.”

Ratings and Reviews
MFML Fan Girl
I am not usually one to write reviews, but I feel compelled to share MFML as its such a well designed app and website that it feels like you are entering your very own inviting yoga studio online. The teachers each have their own unique style and I have found the level of teaching extremely professional with levels accommodating for both beginners and advanced practitioners. What I like most is the convenience to have a yoga class or meditation to fit in around my schedule, so if I fancy a quick pre bedtime yoga class I always have something at my fingertips! There are always fresh new classes being added, so you feel like there’s more classes and teachers to explore. Also having had some brief communication with Kat the owner, she is nothing but helpful and personable, a real gem!
Good but not perfect
Firstly, Movement For Modern Life as a product is great with a huge range of classes for all levels taught by excellent teachers. The subscription is good value and new classes are regularly added.
The app however is only merely adequate. The basics work fine, browsing and watching classes is easy. However, the app is locked in portrait mode when browsing which is a real pain when using on an iPad with a stand/case. You have to use in portrait mode to navigate to the class you want and then flip to landscape mode when watching the video. Surely this can easily be sorted?
The other problem is that the option to download classes for offline use (which is a great idea) is not reliable. It frequently fails to finish a download and takes multiple attempts to succeed. I have fast fibre broadband which is thankfully unlimited but it's still frustrating. If I had a slower connection and/or capped usage it would drive me mad. On a more positive note you can choose the quality to download which can cut down the size and download time.
Could I also make a feature request to be able to allow audio only to continue if you lock your device screen? For meditations in particular (but also for practices you're familiar with) there is no need for video so it would be nice to have just the audio and the screen off to save battery life.
Three stars is probably a little harsh but if the above were all addressed it would be five starts for sure.
Yoga for when you're on the move
I've been a subscriber to the MFML website for 18 months and really love the variety of videos. Being able to pick and choose videos according to my mood or physical state or time available means that I'm now practising most days a week instead of just when I could get to a class. The app is brilliant cos it means I can practise wherever I am and download videos to use when wifi is iffy or if there isn't any. It's easy to negotiate, use and really nice to look at. Which is good because I'll be using it frequently.
