You don’t have to be a limber young thing to enjoy the beautiful art of yoga (although it does help!); with YOGA Free, you can learn 250 poses and get fit by folding yourself in more ways than you ever imagined possible.
The layout of this app is particularly impressive, as it has instructional photos to go along with the written instructions, as well as a ready-made program with a video and vocal guidance, which has been compiled by a yoga professional. What I really like about the app is that you can create your own programs using your favourite yoga poses; what I did was go through all of the poses (well, most of them…) and compile a list of my top 10 that I do each morning before I start work – this way, you can escape all of the boring ones and just do the ones that give you a good, fun stretch!
Another nice feature is the ‘Calendar’ that lets you track your progress by logging each day’s activity; discover inspirational yoga-related quotes that are dotted on each day. The guiding voice is all very well but after a while you will have memorized the moves and have them down pat; when you have reached this area of expertise, you can choose your own tracks from your iPod and sync your favourite chilled out playlist to you yoga workout. You can also check out the Yoga.com website where there are all sorts of poses with pictures that go along with the instructions as well as a diagram of which muscles you are using.
For anyone who is into yoga, from the complete beginner to the practiced expert, this app is a useful workout tool that will show you new tricks and poses and offer inspirational tidbits along the way.
- Over 3,000,000 people around the world are using their apps…they can’t all be wrong.
- If you get a call or a text during your workout the app will automatically pause and pick up right where you left off when you return.

Some instructional videos for the harder moves would be useful.
