One of the things that my wife and I have struggled with in the last couple of years is Yoga. We’re pretty fit so it’s not the exercise that’s a problem, it’s actually finding the time to make it to a class! In the mean time we now have everything that we need to know about the basics of Yoga in one tidy and resourceful app, All-in Yoga: 300 Poses & Yoga Classes.
It’s astounding how much content is put into All-in Yoga: 300 Poses & Yoga Classes. If you can’t tell from the title, there’s a massive amount of poses that are covered ranging from the most basic beginner yoga positions to very advanced poses that I don’t think I will ever attempt. Every pose includes detailed instructions, photographs of each pose, 3D illustration of what muscle groups are being used, and if that’s not enough for you there’s even video demonstrations. The amount of detail for each pose is extremely resourceful.
Knowing Yoga poses is one thing but putting together a well structured program is a whole new game. The programs can be chosen by difficulty as well as focusing on a certain health issue (I.E. Back, Digestion, Eye Sight). If you would like a program that’s specific to you, you can even contact a professional Yoga instructor (this is an additional fee) and they’ll supply you with a program tailored for you*. There’s so many programs (they call them recipes) to choose from that you’ll never feel like your repeating the same one. If you want to you can easily create your own program.
All-in Yoga includes even more helpful content. It supplies you with breathing exercises, soundtracks, and a calendar to keep track of your progress. There’s even a magazine included that continues to be updated that covers useful information to go along with Yoga such as meditation techniques and nutrition articles.
We highly recommend that you give All-in Yoga a try on iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, or Mac OSX. If you have a device that’s not regularly connected to the internet you can download the files. If you need to grab some Yoga equipment such as socks with rubber grips (very handy on wood floors), mats, along with other stuff, www.yoga.com includes a resourceful store along with workout routines.
The Bottom Line: 9/10 (Super!)
While app instructions won’t replace the experience that you’ll get from an instructor giving you feed back on your poses, All-in Yoga: 300 Poses & Yoga Classes is a fantastic yoga resource if you’re a beginner or if you want to expand your yoga knowledge.
