I really like this yoga app. This is the most intelligently designed app I think I’ve used.
Best app for busy people! by JMThorner
Love this app, has wonderful practices, a good variety and different levels and time lengths. Is super helpful for beginners new to the yoga world.
New favorite by CrestieK10
I love this app.
Love this app, great relaxer and very decompressing by Kelechi.S
An added bonus is the workout of course.
Love this app!!! by Rocksteady123
Have been using it almost daily for years! Easy to use and great for you! I cannot say enough about how amazing it is... soooooooo great!
Yoga by neekthesheik
Love this app. Love the females voice. So soothing.
More new workouts needed by kngt11
I really like using this app for my workouts at home. I would to have more yoga routines besides the three main ones that are currently available and a little more variety of the poses in those workouts to keep things more interesting. Hope that’s a possibility!
A comprehensive and great launching pad for yoga practise by kitk4t2k19
This app was something I discovered, perhaps 4 or so years ago. I used it whenever I couldn’t get to a class, or even before that when I was too shy to take a class.
It goes through basic movements, with prompts that make such a huge difference (“soft eyes”, “crown facing the earth”) that shift the practise from just poses to a sequence.
My only criticism is sometimes, once the initial movements have been set out and practiced slowly, the “active” part tends to go very fast: the inhale/exhale sequences take you from one position to the other so fast that, in an effort to keep up, I get winded!
Great and simple by cjspahr_4674
I find this to be a great app for a yoga fix. A 45 minute session provides a good challenge and leaves me feeling relaxed. Worth the purchase.
Best yoga app ever! by RJMaloney
Best yoga app ever. I use it all the time and have used it for years!
Way too quick by thisismynicknameig
The app is great in terms of layout, the voice tells you explicitly how to do the poses and the visuals help give you an idea of what you should be doing. That being said, after about six minutes, the poses start going way too quickly even in the beginner courses. I’ve barely gotten into one pose before they’re two poses past that. It gets to the point where I constantly have to pause the screen or go back four poses just to have time to get into the one I need. There needs to be a speed setting for those of us who can’t go from standing straight to doing a held push up in less than one second. The woman constantly telling you when to breathe is annoying as well, given the time between inhales and exhales. Have almost passed out following the badly timed breathing exercises so I have to just disregard them. Save your $3 and buy a different app.
Amazing! by Snowmonster1
I love this so! I wish the hAd other like for ballet
Like the poses. Too fast btwn poses. by AKjunk9999
Poses great. Voice ok. Too fast between poses....like speed yoga.
Outstanding! by MrFeeN
I was never a huge yoga fan... but this app is fantastic and I’m becoming addicted. It’s amazing how much the app offers for the price. I am quickly seeing progress and they offer multiple skill levels so I can continue to progress. As a software developer, I appreciate the apps simplicity and ease of use. Truly a great app. Bravo!
Sexist + Unrealistic by 0161019
I’m a 27-year-old millennial from Miami. I have been practicing yoga for many years. I recently discovered that the female voice of this app has been changed to that of a cartoon character. The previous voice was a realistic voice and sounded much more “soothing” than the new one. I learned that the president/CEO of this company is a male named Sergio, which is not surprising. We need to stop creating unrealistic female voices period, as it has a negative effect on women’s’ self-esteem, in the same way that constantly hearing deep voices of men would affect their self-esteem (but that doesn’t happen usually because men are in charge more often than women). I will not use this app anymore.
Great Yoga Practice by stiff muscles
I am just a beginner so I have tried using this 3 times a week. It is easy to follow. The pacing is nice. The 30 minute beginner session is just right. I feel great when I am done. I look forward to doing yoga now because it is not too painful like some classes I have taken. I follow the same session until I am confident with the routine. Great. Plus I like the Karma points and knowing how many calories I burned. Thank you for making yoga doable.
Amazing value by christianhall
This combined with the teacher app is a one time purchase that can fully support your in-home practice. Not just a trendy high production video collection. A simple yet completely thought out app that won’t wear out and doesn’t require a subscription. Wish this same system was available for other fitness like bodyweight strength or HIIT training. Love it.
Simply the best by Johnny Bombay
For those of us who struggle with following directions while trying to follow along, this app is the remedy!
I’ve tried in person and online classes, but have always felt like I’m catching up to what the instructor is saying, then getting confused, then anxious, then discouraged. Pocket Yoga gives you such a range of routines from 5min to an hour that you feel in control of the program. For me, it’s a matter of feeling comfortable in order to fully focus on the poses. The biggest feature is the step by step instruction. When to inhale/exhale, what pose to enter into and all narrated in a calming voice with soothing music. I thrive on repetition, so I can repeat certain programs until I can anticipate what is to come. This is a truly usable and functional program! I can not recommend it highly enough, especially for nervous beginners:)
Great introduction to yoga by Cameron Berden
It’s a wonderful app for the money. I am happy with my purchase. Although I wish there were more exercises available. I would even pay more money if it meant unlocking additional exercises.
Really great but somewhat difficult by vermoesenL
This program definitely leans on the more intermediate side.
The very first level 1 incorporated a head stand and crow position. I did my best to follow along but it’s definitely NOT for beginners.
Also, there doesn’t seem to be as many types of flows as it advertised. You have to “earn points” in order to access other levels. I paid for a yoga app, not a video game
Great yoga app by AerynnMT
I have really enjoyed having this app; especially now that I don’t have access to my traditional yoga studios. The sessions are great and I have control over how hard and long I wish to practice. I never fail to glisten by the end of each session and am progressing my practice. This has been a great addition for my stay-at-home world right now!!
More variations plus longer lengths by chaoticsuperman
It’s been great so far, but I do wish their were more variations in the poses. You’re essentially doing the same flow over and over again. I also wish there were more options for length. A typical flow in my yoga studio is 90 minutes, so it would be nice if the app would have more than an hour flow.
Best pocket Yoga class! by jialaoer
I-bought this app many years ago, used it when I cannot go to my yoga class. IIt is quite a workout at every level. The advanced level is very challenging, one class get both the strength and cardio done! Would recommend to everyone! Thanks for creating such a wonderful app! Looking forward to some new additions
Great library of poses, but standard practices too similar by james.t.f.
This is an excellent yoga app for beginners. You can view a list of all poses (with illustration) for each practice before starting. The app also has a library with details on how to correctly perform each pose. This is great because you can quickly screen through the illustrations and look up anything you’re unfamiliar with. After your quick screening, you can start the practice and know how to perform any new moves without needing to interrupt the flow.
The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is that the standard practices are all pretty similar. Eventually this gets old, but it doesn’t stop this app from being great for beginners.
10 years! by Rdots
I have been using this app for over ten years and it has been such a great part of my fitness routine. Anytime I feel tense or sore, I do one of the yoga practices and feel at ease. They come up with great updates and changes so it’s never monotonous. Definitely recommend it during quarantine!!
Great app, could be better by EARTHFALCON
Excellent Yoga app. Best one that I have found. Would like to see easier music management and more variety of flows, not just changing the duration.
Great for those of us stuck at home by Isarus
I use this app when I can’t attend a community class. Gets the job done in a pinch!
Great for a beginner looking to try! by JessicaNLev
I’d never done yoga before I got this app, but was looking for a way to stay active at home. I’ve been using this app daily for about a week and it’s been really excellent. The voice of the instructor is really soothing and it does a good job in pacing in the practices.
If there’s one feature that I think is lacking, it would be the music integration. It would be nice if you could select a Spotify playlist and set it to shuffle instead of having to select the order of each individual song.
Coronavirus Lock Down by andy boy4728;73
The subject line says it all.
Very good by Jewlsy jewls
I really enjoy this app and find it to be a great balance of challenge and release.
Speed change by Lawrence_Liu92
The movement speed increased suddenly after half of training, I can’t catch up comfortably
Great at home yoga! by qwertysnipe
Works perfectly when I can’t get to the studio. Just wish the breathing was a hair more smooth. Still, great app!
Uncomfortable series by Nardthefard
I’ve tried to use this app to guide me through a series when I’m not motivated to lead my self. Unfortunately I’ve had to quit early the last two times when I felt that the series was just filling in time with awkward poses. Going from child’s pose to up dog 10x in a row? I opted to follow a much more natural, instructive series on YouTube. I wouldn’t recommend this app to a beginner.
Great by gz.snail
Nice workouts, lots of poses, good flow
Keeps losing calorie count by soccermommy3
The workouts/practices are nice but it is very frustrating that it keeps losing or resetting the count for calories burned randomly through the session. App is up to date and watch is secure so not sure why it happens.
Update by Gary Stanz
I have been a user for a couple of years
I would give the pervious version a 5 star rating
However the current instructor is not in my opinion not as good as the previous one
Cadence is at times to fast and then too slow
Not always clear about which movement is next or which side we are working on
You fixed something witch wasn’t broken
Bring the previous instructor
Good Program by Mnjbg
I have been using this program for over four years now. It is a good program overall. It offers a good variety of exercise that will keep any user entertained because of the variety it offers. I downgraded my rating to three stars because of an issue that I believe needs to be addressed. You see, I am a forty seven year old man in good shape. Although I am able to keep up with all of the beginner workouts, I don’t think the poses were well thought out for beginners. You see, in the Ocean beginner workout, it requires that a beginner do a split as one of the exercises. Really? I have been doing this program for over four years two to three times a week. As a man, I’m simply not flexible. How in the world do the creators of this program expect any beginner to do a split? I find it unrealistic. I wish that they would take out any splits from all beginner workouts because it is an unrealistic pose for a beginner and simply demoralizing. After four years, I’m never going to be able to do that pose and am frustrated every time it comes up.
In addition, I’ve unlocked all of the different backgrounds by using my karma points. Now I have over eight hundred karma points that I can no longer use because there is nothing else left to unlock. I do wish that they would offer new perks to unlock for us dedicated users. It gets boring not being able to use those karma points ever again.
Best yoga app I’ve found by Kitty stoner94
I’m not normally someone who reviews stuff especially apps but I love this app and I tell everyone about this app. It’s hands down the best yoga app I’ve ever found.
I love this app by Leslie Zombie killer
It’s easy to use, and the graphics make it clear what you need to do. The voice reinforces it without being annoying. The music is unobtrusive, but you can use your own soundtrack if you like. It gives you various times, like 6 min sun salutation routine, or another routine that’s 30, 45, or 60 minutes. If you want to be a little lazy, you can do the bare minimum, or you can be hardcore. Love it!
My Go-To by bizzybizzybee
This is a great little app! It really helps if a user is already familiar with yoga... it’s not a beginning-teaching app. But, a wonderful to supplement your practice and uses low data, so especially nice for travel. I like the soothing music and appreciate the options for scenes. The voice-overs have good diction/enunciation ... very clear.
I actually use it by Slaybot
And that's the biggest endorsement I can give. I've skimmed other apps, but this one I actually use regularly, so it's worth the price of a latte.
I do agree that it's help if you've taken yoga classes in person for a while, nothing beats human instruction and individual modification to help with your pose, but a regular practice when you don’t have something else around (or that you can afford) this is great. The updates with the improved voice instruction make it even better.
Excellent by captain-nice
These folks designed a fine pair of Yoga applications. The drawings are simple and provide a clear picture of the asana. The voice is pleasant. The spoken instructions are well-timed, concise, clear, and instructive. I am sure I could say the same about any number of other Yoga applications.
So what brings me to this rave review was something I learned from the companion application 'Pocket Yoga Teacher.' I wanted to construct a series of poses in 'Pocket Yoga Teacher,' and it balked at doing them in the order I proposed. Suspecting a bug in the program, I contacted support and got a prompt reply from support. Let me repeat that. I GOT A PROMPT REPLY FROM SUPPORT. The folks supporting the application pointed out problems with the series of asanas I had in mind and offered improvements. The problem was an operator failure (me) and they corrected it.
These folks know a lot about Yoga and programmed it into their applications. It may not be blatantly obvious, but it was there lurking beneath the surface to help me.
Great app! by Goodkarma23
I like the flexibility this app offers for my practice. I can be anywhere and just turn on my yoga class and go. I also downloaded the teacher app so looking forward to creating my own practices as well! BTW the teacher app is a little (a lot) more complicated than I thought. But this app is AWESOME! I have owned it now for about 8 years is my guess and it never fails me!
Awful by hate this scanner app
The intermediate level ocean practice was just....the slowest sun salutations that I’ve ever encountered. Over and over. It was only three dollars, but I kind of want it back? I double checked to make sure I hadn’t accidentally clicked on the sun salutations practice and I hadn’t. Don’t buy this app. It’s garbage.
5/5 ✨ 🧘🏽♀️ by 📱 Fappantastic 🐿
( dev plz fix Apple Watch can you let it have audio or a haptic feedback to alert us when to change to next pose because at this point mostly use phone to do exercise since watch screen keeps turning off and it’s quiet. It would be nice to use watch for more than a heart rate monitor during exercise :( )
I bought the yoga bundle which was 9.99 for customize yoga teacher poses & I can’t remember how much it was for just pocket yoga Apple Watch version.
I was very hesitant to buy the bundle, I ended up buying it because the yoga poses are very detailed with exceptional audio and customization.
Sadly you have to have the entire bundle of both apps to enjoy the full experience. If you just get the Apple Watch version your going to miss out on a lot of features.
This is a steep price to invest for apps, but hoping it’s worth it in the long run as it appears the developer is active and updates frequently so the app should have longevity.
I’ve actually created my own yoga package morning routine and it did synch over to the Apple Watch version, so it does work! If your trying to get more serious about yoga just buy the app you’ll learn more about the poses and feel more motivated to actually do it.
Absolutely love this app by Aer1ekah
I love this app and it’s partner app. I can or recommend them enough. At first it wasn’t quite as robust - but they are constantly adding more poses and upgrading more options.
These guys are really on top of the app and always adding new features. Definitely check them out!
Great alternative to a class by yoga in a pinch
Great option when I can’t make it to a yoga class.
Mobil Yoga by Willfont
I’m 65 year old man heading towards my 2nd hip replacement. For my body and age yoga provides almost all the exercise I need. This app with its free sessions, ways to make each session easier and shorter, works great for me. I sometimes can’t keep up the pace of pose changes but I just
move at my pace and catch up as I can. I end up doing more yoga because there is no drive time and I don’t have to fit my schedule to the yoga class times. I really enjoy this app, it’s helping keep me stronger, more flexible, better balance and more agile.
Can’t Play Apple Music by djvderyhdseg
I wish you could play Apple Music through the app, as it will not allow you to use both apps at the same time.
