I have been using the Yoga Studio app for the last two weeks to help me kick start my morning yoga routine and learn some new poses. One of the advantages to being a yoga teacher is that we can modify our practice to fit any level of learning for students and ourselves.
The Yoga Studio app is a Gaiam app, a company already famous for helping yogis to grow both their yoga and their awareness. They also have a fantastic line of yoga props and gear. I think my first yoga mat was a Gaiam mat.
The Yoga Studio app is $3.99 but totally worth it! I know that there is lot’s of free yoga out there on You Tube and other yoga apps but for just $3.99 you get the best yoga pose instruction videos I have experienced yet. You also get guided lessons and a calendar to track your progress. There are also three levels of lessons: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. I have been doing both the Beginner and Intermediate classes because there are some foundation poses in the Beginner classes that I have not learned before. The app give great ques for the key points of alignment that helps to maintain a safe and strong practice.
This app is great for someone who is actively getting instruction from a live teacher and wants to practice on their own. I would not recommend this app for someone who has never had instruction from a real yoga teacher before. There are important safety lessons that you can only get from a live teacher.
