⚠️⚠️⚠️ Not for beginners!!! ⚠️⚠️⚠️
It has yoga sessions for beginners, it is not. I bought this app as a truly naive practitioner and promptly ignored it for ~2yrs. In that time I took 40 studio yoga sessions. This app COULD be great, once I learned the basics and proper poses/posture I LOVE this app ❤️❤️❤️. All they need to do is add a true beginner session detailing the basics: four corners, downward dog, warrior poses, breathing, etc explaining how everything should look and feel. Also calling out the more common names during flows (maybe in a beginner intro session have text on screen with both names). When I tried it before, I like others quit because I felt so lost. Also, wheel isn't a true beginner pose but it's in the beginner series. Maybe in the beginner series calling out a few more alternatives would be good. On that note also have more poses that you can do to work into the more difficult poses. For studio time I paid $10/session, so this app is a steal (once you know what you're doing).
One more thing - it should be easier to restart a series. When I jump from daily to flexibility, I have to look up in my history where I was since it defaults to day 1. Finding how to do that was no easy task either.
Best Comprehensive Yoga App!! Works on iPad
Definitely works on iPad (portrait mode). I rarely write reviews, but this app's soooo top-of-the-line that I had to! If you're looking for quality, pristine, revitalizing, health-enhancing yoga routines with a cardio workout founded in a healing, nurturing tone, that's packaged in one video, this is the app for you. I own numerous yoga apps, and am still at the beginner level. Many other apps do not offer multi-level practices with all the flowing sequences in one simple video. I grew tired of other app's poor quality videos that forced me to click a video for each pose. This app offers numerous comprehensive videos for the beginner, intermediate & advanced yoga practitioner (17 to 30 minutes each). It offers many ready-made practices that are invigorating. There are also brief instructional videos for each pose. You can even build your own routine & save it.
Janet gently guides each pose in the sequence, at a good & do-able pace, coupled with soothing background music & a beautiful, peaceful retreat-like setting (instead of other apps' dissonant gym setting or the ubiquitous beach setting). And it has a wonderful added bonus: several brief meditations that balance, soothe & inspire. All of this at such a cheap price is truly incredible. Thank you! Namaste.
Almost perfect! Definitely get this app!
This is a great app! I was skeptical at first and somewhat turned off by her cues to focus on the "fire element", etc. But I decided to give the app a second chance. And I've finally started to enjoy yoga! The sequences flow very well. I've started with daily beginner and I like that it slowly progresses in skill and time length, so it builds on what you did before. This makes it great for someone who is a beginner and for someone who is not as flexible. I've been using this seriously for about a month and a half and I'm already noticing increased hamstring flexibility.
Why not five stars? The bridge pose audio seems to be broken and lolo said they would fix it in their next update, but it's a little slow going for that to happen in my opinion. I'm writing a review hoping more people will try this out and maybe that will spur the update. I know this app isn't free, but considering that an in person yoga class can run up to $20, the price of this app is nothing!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
