Best on-the-go yoga app, but may be confusing for the inexperienced
For the new yoga student, the app may seem quick -- however, Gaiam teaches a Vinyasa based style yoga which is focused on flowing (moving smoothly from pose to pose in accordance with breath rhythm). Flowing does grow much quicker towards the end of the practice, but that is in order to build and improve. But after all, yoga is not 'relaxing stretching' -- yoga is always work. For the student who (mistakenly) thinks that yoga is just about going slowly from pose to pose, this type of yoga will not befit them well. However, the app is indeed limited in its lack of transition explanation, and the fact that the student watching the animated figure does not see how to appropriately get into the next pose -- this is unfortunate, as the sequence of transition is just as important as getting into a pose. Gaiam might also do well to explain more in detail what kind of yoga they teach, and what a 'vinyasa' is. These are the main limitations for the app, but overall, the app is a fun and excellent tool for intermediate and even advanced students to keep up their practice at home and on the go.
Very, VERY fast flow at Beginner level
I'm enjoying this app, but sometimes the flow between some of the poses seems much too fast at the Beginner level given the biomechanics involved. Also, sometimes the narration will fail to identify the current pose, so the user has to look back at the screen. I'm still using the app, but sometimes I have to ignore the prompts.
I like this app, except it suddenly speeds up inappropriately. The slow speed is perfect. It should stay that way and give an option for faster for those who actually want that. Will be looking for other options until that is fixed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
