Pocket Yoga works great on your Apple Watch. When you are playing a practice on your iPhone you can get extra information directly on your wrist. See the current pose, time remaining, heart rate, calories burned, and much more. You can even control your practice directly from your Apple Watch.
The “Pose of the Day” Widget helps you learn the names of the poses by showing you a different pose each day. You can see the name of the daily pose in English, Sanskrit and even in Devanagari script. Also tap on the pose image to launch Pocket Yoga and go directly to that pose.
Using this app 3-4 times per day for three months has dramatically improved my core strength and flexibility. I can now do challenge poses that were way too intimidating the first time I played. Chronic pain and soreness (from sitting in one position too long at work) has also been greatly reduced. This is great cross training for runners, rowers and weightlifters.
great concept, needs tweaks by ccccja
good app but i really wish this app was more polished before i paid 2.99 for it :/ kind of a bummer.
transitions between poses are too fast sometimes, like the app doesn’t recognize that it takes some time to move into the next pose. I can’t go as fast as just the pictures. There should be a way to slow down the flow of the practice.
Wish there was a shorter time frame of 15 minutes. App doesn’t account for total beginners or someone with a busy schedule.
This is clearly a new app (couldn’t even send feedback since there’s no email configured to that button!) I have hope that with updates it can get better. I’ll stick with it but it should have been more...finished before I paid for it.
Also just a nitpick but if the instructor could have skin tones that we could pick from that would be amazing...like this is a yoga app but only a light skin tone lady? come on! at least let me pick a brown or darker skin tone.. black and brown people do yoga too...........
Pocket Yoga by B3arclaws!
Pocket yoga has helped me start my yoga practice. It’s so easy to use and illustrative a beginner can easily use this with confidence and begin their yoga journey. Great app!
Best App on the market! by caseylynlo
I love this app and it has been so helpful to make sure that I am exercising every day. Super easy to follow along with and she will help you get to know the different poses!
Gotta love it by Jjaynella
This app is great. If you are new to yoga or if you have some experience. I love it because it’s on my phone and I can do yoga anywhere. The voiceover has a good tone and the background sound is peaceful. After each yoga session. I feel relaxed and have a piece of mind. I used to have really bad back and shoulder pain but after each session I feel great.
What do I say by Nofftastic
So you pay for this app and then have to pay for different backgrounds. Not only that but every practice I have tried is ridiculous fast with no real transition time. Even the beginner mode is fast.. idk maybe I’m just using it wrong but I found no button to slow down the pace. I have an iPhone se
Great and challenging by Smellenmarie
I swear by this app, the music is perfect, the graphics are helpful and not distracting, and the updates to routines as well as different styles and difficulties make it well worth the purchase.
Good but needs an update by longboi nickboi
I like this app for go to yoga routines that can be scaled by difficulty level and time, but the app doesn’t always sync up with Apple health. I’ve done several workouts that seem to just disappear both in the app’s history and in Apple health. The app hasn’t been updated in 10 months and is in need of an update.
Developers, please update this app to improve logging of workouts and sync with Apple Health!
Great just one thing by chiara w
I love this app. It’s great for yoga and to relax. My one problem is that there are only 5 practices. I wish there were more. If this changes I will re write my review. Thanks.
Needs improvement for watch by aaa1985$
It needs to be compatible for the new watch iOS. It is buggy and unresponsive at times and there needs to be haptics so you know when to move to new position or when session is done. There should also be an option to slow down sessions for beginners. It’s still an awesome iPhone yoga app, but doesn’t interface well with the watch.
Thank you by KitACB
I have had other yoga apps over the years,
But this one is easy to adapt for personal levels, clear, soothing color schemes, with detailed poses; wonderful to be able to shift view from icon to list, by far the best.
Simple, but effective! by Ailios Tara
There aren’t fancy subscription plans or weekly videos on this app, but it provides a great workout at differing skill levels whenever you need it. I like to use it on days where my favorite YouTube yoga channels haven’t posted anything new. The list of yoga poses is also helpful for quick reference.
Great app by Pandakeeper1
Sometimes avatar moves too fast. But love the voice, mesic , choices. Would be cool if a bit more explanation about how to get into certain poses.
Good But Needs Improvement... by Halfmagic3
Purchased this app over a year ago and was originally impressed with it, I feel now that it needs a few updates. Back when I purchased it, the “create your own routine” was available and imbedded in this original app. I am very disheartened to see it is now a separate app or bundle purchase that I would need to repurchase. That’s pretty bad!
There REALLY needs to be more variety in the routines, not just 3 routines in each of the sections. There is way too much boredom happening! There has to be some variation! Without offering the ability to create your own routine WITHIN this original app, I say skip it! Not worth the money! There HAS to be more updates!
On top of that, I would like to see shorter session offerings. I allot myself only 15 minutes in the morning and usually do another short session in the afternoon. Not everyone can fit in a 30 minute minimum routine every day. I hate to say this, but it may be time to switch apps!
Misleading by shannontrampel
So the yoga routines are good, good explanations and the poses are explained well. However, this should not be advertised as usable with Apple Watch. It tracks on exercise minutes. The apps keeps saying it cannot read heart rate even though I have allowed it in settings and it does not track calories toward your move goal. Do not download for use with Apple Watch. I am very angry I paid for this app believing it was compatible.
A little disappointed by Pinacolada__
I saw good reviews and it was one of the top recommended yoga apps for the Apple Watch..I was expecting it to buzz on my wrist and some of he moves are going by to fast-from standing pose to plank in one breath, or from child pose to upward dog in one breath..not enough time to move like that for yoga..
Frustrated ! by S. Rania
I’m still hoping to figure this app out!
I feel like I wasted my time and money.
I will change my rating if and when I want to spend more time on it .
Great App, here’s a few suggestions. by Illaxica
I’ve been using pocket yoga for a few years and I believe that this app is effective. I would suggest of being able to select your own yogi avatar that may reflect the user. For example, options for male or female, skin color, height and weight. Also, I would find it useful if there was a bell at the end of each yoga session. I tend to get so relaxed I fall asleep. Overall, great app and I frequently recommend it to my friends.
Yoga Beginner by G&Massets
This app is perfect for me. I have taken very few live classes and this app will allow me to practice at home and learn the poses. Love it! Can’t wait to level up and challenge myself in the comfort of my home and on my schedule. Highly recommend this easy to follow structure.
Horrible by artyogaman
Not only is this app way to fast between poses. Completely unrealistic doesn't even let you switch for longer time frames. I can't even get in a stretch before having to change. Don't recommend it.
Excellent by jennalit
Let’s me practice yoga at my own pace on my own schedule wherever I go. Has helped my body and mind greatly.
Perfect! by dblack88
Terrific! Really perfect if you don’t want to spend 2 hours going to a yoga studio!
Great pocket yoga by CheckingonSetters
Love having this with me wherever I go!
Distracting Voiceover by bromakshii
The instructor’s voice is terribly abrasive. She awkwardly elongates the words inhale and exhale throughout the entirety of the routine. The app itself is attractive, well designed, and easy to navigate, but is still a waste of money.
Love this app! by EJVHayes
I have found this to be so helpful. They offer different lengths for each class and this comes in handy if I have an unexpected gap in my day to fit in some yoga.
So convenient! by PMKnitter
I love the ability to have a guided yoga practice anytime, anywhere! If you have taken a class or two and know the basic poses, this is great. All I want is to have someone walk me through my 30, 45, or 60 minute practice. There are also sun salutations that I don’t use as much, but are also good.
Poo Watch integration and few improvements. by Juniorraz
This used to Bebi retry good when health apps took flight on the iPhone and also with Apple Watch but the same bugs and spotty integration with Apple Watch after over a year make this one of the poorer choices by now. You get the impression that this app has been put on the back burner.
This app made me hate Yoga by Sharon0814
Don’t use this app if you just started doing Yoga. It’s really fast pace and it’s not the yoga that I usually do. I thought yoga is relaxing but the ones on here is not. Deleting this app soon.
Annoying and Disappointing by livelypsyche
I found the voice to be really annoying anytime she says “inhaaaaaaale” and “exhaaaaaaale”. I think it’s supposed to be slow and relaxing but really it’s like a robot is trying to tell me when to breath... and it’s wrong. I would be turning blue or hyperventilating if I actually listened to it. At one point the alternating yoga poses were just too quick and were starting to hurt my back. Since I’m not new to yoga and I’m in shape, this was surprising for an app marketed for beginners. Do not recommend for anyone, new or advanced yoga practitioners.
This isn’t much of a pocket yoga app by Caleb Kierum
The shortest sequence available is a whopping 30 minutes long. I don’t generally have that kind of time. Would appreciate 10 and 15 minute exercises.
Love it by 818oni
I've been using this app for years, it has helped me with my weight loss and work related stress. I'd recommend it to anyone that wants to try yoga for the first time instructions are simple and app is easy to use.
Great app by MsSkitzle
I don’t do enough yoga to warrant a subscription to all those other apps out there, but I do enough that having something simple to follow would be helpful. This app works perfectly for that.
Enjoying the free app—Always room for improvement by rgFRESH
Really enjoying the app for what it’s worth. The music and guided voice as well as the image is subtle but clear, calm, and professional. I would love to have more shorter yoga options (10-15 min) and especially if the user could pick a set of the exercises from the all inclusive list to play consecutively but as it is a free app which I use in a pinch at home as an easy stretch and yoga routine I am just grateful to have what is available. Thanks so much!
Great App!!! by Greenhill591
I love the options that you have and that you can take this anywhere. I can even do intervals at the office on stressful days!! Love it!
Review on beginners yoga by dmspeaknspell
Rather than counting down on the hold, it would be nice to just hear, “ lengthen your inhalation and lengthen your exhalation.
Transitional movements should be slower.
Great Except for Crashes by mikebrodt
This is my go-to yoga app and has worked very well for me until recently. It has great exercises that work parts of you body, and all of them work your mind. If you are looking for a simple yoga app that doesn’t require a subscription, this app is for you.
...The Apple Watch app, on the on the other hand, is a different story. It CONSTANTLY crashes. I’m able to complete my session, but since the app crashed on my watch, it doesn’t record part or any of the session in Activity. Though not the real point of yoga, it is frustrating to not get credit for the work.
Love this app by Rosie_Splitcreek
I travel a lot for work. I take my iPad to the hotel roof top pool or whatever pool area and do my pocket yoga while everyone else is packed in the gym.
Years of use by Ad complaint
I got this app years ago when Starbucks pushed it and its been a reliable yoga workout for when I’m traveling. It works flawlesly and has variable time settings so I can do 15, 30, 45 or 60 min depending on my needs. Also a beg, int, and hard setting. Not sure how it monetizes because there are no commercials and it’s free but I am a faithful user.
Love!! by mcdanc
This app explains everything so well! I’m brand new to yoga and this is perfect for me. It helps me relax and unwind after work or before bed.
Best Yoga App by Netnetbobet
Who needs a studio when you have a step by step coach telling you what to do next. Not to mention the customization of the three different levels!
Kind of by Snnysrs
It’s a nice app but they don’t use the correct names for poses for example: “come into your box” means table pose. So for someone who is used to doing yoga you’re going to have to watch the screen a lot.
It’s a real blessing to my life by I want to be healthy
Simple exercises explained and guided just get it it’s awesome
Love this app!!! by Rocksteady123
Have been using it almost daily for years! Easy to use and great for you!
Yoga app by ConnieZI
Great app, take you step by step to yoga just like you have teacher next to you!
So Good by agsk8lou
What a great way to start your morning!
Beginner? by FlyAwayJay
Beginner workout is actually a little too hard for me, but I modify by following along at a slightly slower pace. I really like that it syncs to my watch. I don’t have to fumble for my phone or come out of a pose in a bad way, I can just glance at my watch and it will show me the current pose, how much time is remaining for the current pose, and my progress in the workout overall. Despite it being a little beyond my physical limits right now, I’m able to adjust and am really enjoying the app. There are a lot of individual poses you can do as well which is really nice.
Great app by Lisbeth2012
This is a great app for yoga. Lots of different workouts, levels, and workout times. Easy to follow. Great to use while traveling.
Good by DSWD_1
It’s worth the price. They don’t make you do weird stuff to have access to their programs. It’s not a bait and switch for a subscription model or anything.
However, at least so far, the yoga style seems a little robotic. I have like other styles better. But it is a legitimate app.
PS- not for beginners
Good enough, could use a churching up by AnOrphanGrlScout
I've used this app off and on for years and it’s pretty good. The art design is simple and un-intimidating. The karma points is a neat gimmick. Some mildly fun customization that keeps you interested. It's convenient to have it on your iPhone and be able to AirPlay it up to your Apple TV.
The simple flash-card style visuals are an understandable way to create an inexpensive product, but first-time users think they have to jump or spring to the next pose. Even a brief mid-move card would help.
The narration is pretty good (but odd that she doesn’t know how to say any numbers between the 10s), the ability to skip to the next move is useful, being able to print or even preview all the poses is good, but I wish there were a shuffle button. I’d like to just be able to open my app and with one click, just go.
Worth the money? Yeah. But there are probably better apps out there. I’ve used one called Yoga Studio that was more comprehensive but easier to get lost in. This one only takes a few buttons to get to the action, but I still want a one-click option.
It’s good enough.
