Great

Best

I like the responsiveness of your support team. Thank you for your assistance with my questions I sent you. I look forward to upcoming features that you may include such as "chair yoga" poses. Yours is the best app program I have seen in this category. I like doing your program in the early morning, while wearing headphones, listening to your music and voice instructions and seeing the closed captions and illustrated yoga poses. Thank you ! Very restful, exhilarating, and exerciseful. I also like your pose library pocketyoga.com/Pose . Excellent !

Great app

I've been using this for a couple of weeks and really like it. I'm a beginner but familiar with yoga poses so it works well for me. I think if someone was not at all familiar it would be more challenging. As someone mentioned in another review, sometimes the narrating voice skips which leg you should be on and it is a bit jarring to have to suddenly try to remember which leg I used last time. But other than that I like it and would definitely recommend getting it

Breath instructions annoying

I like this app EXCEPT the way the voice says "inhale /exhale" is really annoying and distracting. I wish they'd offer an option without that.

Pretty good

This is a nice yoga app. I like how intense the reps can be because I can really feel like I'm working out, yet it's also got the relaxing and meditative element I'm looking for in yoga. I do wish there were more exercises to choose from, and like someone else said, sometimes they don't tell you which leg or arm you're supposed to use on a certain pose. Also I wish you could adjust the time - I like 30 minutes of yoga but some days if you're busier or for whatever reason it'd be nice to do 15 minutes, 10 minutes, etc. but overall I like this app

Love this app!

I have had this app for a little over a year now and I must say this is my favorite app out there for DIY yoga. I love the karma rewards and how I can purchase upgrades to my classes. I also enjoy how I can customize the class depending on what my needs are - time, intensity and course. Absolutely love!

Good alternative 😉

This is a good work out alternative to use at home or on vacay as I have experienced. If you need a good workout on the road traveling all you need is the app and bit of space! Then bingo your rejuvenated, limber and even lets you know estimates on calories burned. Used this app on the lanai on a Hawaii vacay almost every morn to get our adventures started!! I like this app...👍

Very very very impressed

I'm a novice. I got the app and started to build a program. I added a couple of poses and then it refused to take the next one. But the app refused. I thought dumb app and sent a complaint to support about their dumb app. Well I got a very gentle reply that explained the order I had chosen would be hard to do without hurting myself but if I wanted to do it the support person explainwd how. Much chasened I grew a lot of respect for the work that had gone into this app as well as the quality and speed of their support department. Nameste programmers and support people. :)

More?

I wish this app would come with more practices. Like a bedtime one.

Best yoga app I've seen

Pocket yoga is great! It's not a subscription app, which is a BIG plus in my book. There are three sets of routines, each with a beginner, intermediate, and advanced level, and you can practise 30 min, 45 min, or an hour on each. There is also a sun salutation routine with two versions. I'd gladly pay for in app purchases if they would make new routines, as all three sets of routines are similar, with slight variations. Would also like to see shorter sets, say, 15 minutes. Kudos to the developers for making such a reliable app without charging a subscription!

Perfect Home Practice!

I started using this app about a year ago when my work schedule changed and I couldn't get to class as often as I would like. I agree with the other reviewers who said that you need some basic knowledge of yoga asana, but the illustrations are fine for a good home practice. Also, I have been practicing yoga for many years and consider myself an intermediate practitioner-- however, I find the beginner level to be enough of a challenge for me on most days! I also like that there are different length practices which helps to fit into busy schedules... Thanks for creating a great app!

Revision!

I guess there was a lag in my phone/watch whatever. BEST YOGA APP!! I've tried them all, paid and free. This is 100%

Pocket Yoga & Pocket Yoga Builder Compatibility

Just purchased Pocket Yoga & Pocket Yoga Builder a few days ago. Glad to see the update on Pocket Yoga but would really like to see an update to Builder and more importantly compatibility between the two apps. I purchased both but mainly wanted to build my own yoga program. Very disappointed that after all the time it took to execute & create the program, I was not able to import it to Pocket Yoga & therefore receive credit for the workout in Apple Health & on the Apple Watch. I love the concept of both apps. but especially since they are sold as a bundle & created by the same company, using the same poses etc., they really should work together.

Pleasurable

With this app now, I have no excuse not to fit at least :30 of yoga into each day. Well worth the money.

Good App

Great for keeping up with an established yoga practice.

LOVE this app!

It's a yoga class whenever and wherever I want it. Great app - I've recommended it to several of my friends.

Best Yoga App!

I highly recommend you do "Desert Practice!" It's intense! Gaining flexibility, mobility, muscular endurance, all the things that are important for a beginner, period! I use this in conjunction with programs such as "Starting Strength," "5/3/1," or anything by Pavel & Joe DeFranco/Diesel Crew!

Good app! Worth getting.

Like others have said, they're is not variety in the routines, but this app helps give you the yoga fix you need. This is way better than the other yoga apps I have tried. I like how it's connected to the Apple Watch.

Been using it casually for years

This app is so easy to use and has let me introduce yoga into my life at my own pace.

so useful!

Love this app! So useful and relaxing. I love that you can pick different modes to fit your skill level.

Great Partner

I can direct my own sessions but I allow this app to lead 3 days a week. Excellent yoga partner.

Awesomely convenient!

Pocket Yoga always gives me a great start to any day!

Just like a yoga class

Awesome option at home or in hotel room - I have even used an empty office at work to sneak in 30 min of yoga during lunch. Hope in a future upgrade they add more classes.

Great way to learn yoga at home

As a beginner, I've been able to find the right length, difficulty and pace. Great app!

Pocket Yoga Review

This is a wonderfully designed app with plenty of variety to either use as your daily Yoga practice, or to supplement your group practice sessions on your own. The various session time lengths and levels of ability can be combined for an excellent Yoga session. As a a Yoga practitioner of 24 years and being 74 years old, and not having a traditional Yoga group practice locally available, I have found Pocket Yoga to be a great substitute. One minor point is that the time interval between poses shortens as the session progresses and could be lengthened by a second or two for optimal transitions between more difficult poses. Really well designed app and I have recommended it to my Yoga friends.

Pocket yoga

Looove it! Great for travel! Swear it's Pam from True Blood narrating.

Simple and Powerful

Love this straight-forward and easy to follow yoga program. Great way to start and end each day. Portability makes this app a perfect travel companion!

Love this app. So useful!!!

I do believe that you need some experience with poses, but I like that it still gives you a list to look over which poses there are in yoga. So maybe a beginner can start off by studying the list. I've taken one yoga class, so I did have some knowledge, but not tons. I feel like the beginner stage is a perfect way to challenge a person interested in yoga. Self motivation will push you through if you want to be a yogi. Love love love all of the ways it engages your entire body. I do wish there was a little bit different varieties of routines. There is a lot of repetitiveness, but other than that, it's great! It would be cool if the app offered some type of gift card rewards for getting to a certain level of karma points, that would make it even more motivational, but I love this app!!!

Love it!! But please sync with Practice Builder!

This is a fantastic app that I've been using for years. Great for the beginner but also works for seasoned yogis. My only recommendation in to sync Pocket Yoga with the companion app Practice Builder. Then it would be downright perfect.

Pocket Yoga

Love this app!

Such relief after a bad day

I started a beginner yoga class in college that definitely saved me from my senior year. This app reminds me of that and definitely helps now after bad days at work! It is perfect for me.

Great for travel

I use this app when I am on the road or can't get to a yoga studio in the time that I have.

Have had this forever and keep going back to it

One of the first apps I ever paid for and so glad I did. Easy to follow instructions and explanations for when you don't. Started this app as a beginner and then moved to intermediate. Love this app.

Great for yogi's that already have some knowledge

Like a lot of reviews, this app isn't the greatest for beginners (not having in depth info on the poses), but if you've takin some classes where poses are explained in classes and you get corrected on bad posture on poses, this is a great alternative if you can't make it to class or have a season where you can only do it home.

Great workout

I haven't done yoga in a while but this app really is easy to use and at the right level for me. I like the different routines, the ability to pick skill level, and duration time. I also like how it pairs with my Apple Watch. I strongly recommend this app.

Road Trip Friend

This app is wonderful to use when traveling. Completed several sessions in my daughters small apartment kitchen using my iPad. Now I am now using the app in a log cabin tucked away in a remote area. With a little imagination, it is like being in a yoga studio. I would like to see more variety in the workouts, however some attention has been given by the choices of ocean, desert and mountain. If one chooses to work on flexibility and chooses a 30 minute workout for consecutive days, the exact same workout is presented.

Great app for at home

I really like to use this app when I can't make it to the studio but need a little practice on my own at home. I like being able to switch between different levels and I feel like I can go at my own pace that best suits where I'm at that day. I love that it syncs up with my Apple Watch, too! Still, nothing beats being at the studio.

Great companion when you can't get to a class

Yoga can be done cheaply, you hardly need a mat to do it. I usually prefer a class but that's not always available to me and it's pretty expensive. This app does a great job guiding you through practice.

Simple. Inviting. Progressive.

I really appreciate how simple this app is and how you can choose your own progression. I will admit that this does require some starting upper body strength, however the app does invite you to rest in child's pose whenever you feel tired. It is nice that as you progress, there is enough variety to not get tired of the sessions. With definitely continue using and will recommend highly to those wanting an easy way to enjoy yoga at home and on the go 😊

Solid, But has some Flaws

I really like this app. As someone said in another post, it's really not for beginners. You need to have some knowledge of poses to really be able to master its use. A couple of the things that I don't like about it. First, there are very few updates. As of writing this, the last update was four months ago. Second, it doesn't doesn't have an option for a male graphic and voice. (Also the just for laughs, in some of the poses the "woman's" shirt rides up giving her plumber's crack!) Lastly, and the one I feel most important about, some of the directions for poses in the "routines" that are listed are not very descriptive if you're not actually looking at the screen. And what I mean is that if you're doing something on both the right and left sides, it will randomly omit which leg, arm, or side you're supposed to move. If you're focusing on your breathing or the pose itself, it can be distracting to have to look at the screen if you don't know which limb to move first. That said, tho, I use the Sun Salutations every morning before my daily writing. It's helped me become more flexible and a bit stronger. Hopefully, there will be an update that addresses some of these issues in the future!

Good but not great for beginners.

While this app offers beginner settings, it provides limited information to help beginners. It moves very quickly and defines few poses during the workouts. There is a glossary but you'll spend a lot more time trying to figure out the poses than you will doing them. I've been doing yoga for several years but still don't know all the poses and terms. Don't expect to have no knowledge and be able to jump into the workouts. This is not my only paid yoga app. I got this one because of the pairing with Apple Watch. When it works, it's nice to be able to glance at your wrist since the speed of the workouts and the poses themselves prevent you from always being able to see your main device's screen. However, it doesn't always show the correct pose on the watch.

Great customer support for a great app

I wrote to the developers to ask if they were thinking about adding a male instructor (drawings and voiceover). Nathalie wrote back to say that the example poses are custom-drawn from photos of their real instructors in front of a green screen. I hadn't realized how much work and care had gone into making the app in the first place, and of course this answers my question about what would be involved in adding another model. I appreciated the time and care Nathalie took in giving such a thoughtful and detailed answer and will continue using this great app on my iPad, iPhone and my new Apple Watch.

Love it!!

Perfect at home app.

Excellent!

Three programs plus two sun salutations. Three difficulty levels and choice of 30, 45, or 60 minutes. Flow yoga—movements times with breaths. Simple instructions. No video, so sometimes it's unclear how to move from one to the next, but I can usually figure it out. Often provides form instructions, like "sink down between shoulder blades," and "be sure fingers point straight forward." First time through each sequence, two breaths per movement, then one breath per—feels great! I have tried several other apps, all deleted. This one I've kept for years now and keep coming back to it. Thank you for an excellent product.

I love this app!

I highly recommend it. I have been using it for years. Simple, easy to follow.

Very convenient!

I'm a working mom with 3 young boys. Maintaining a yoga practice is very difficult and I've been very sporadic about keeping up with it since having kids. This app has made it easy to throw down my mat wherever I get a bit of time, whether it's in my upstairs hallway or a slow day at the office. My practice is becoming more regular once again. Highly recommend!

I love this app!

It is very informative and great for beginners. At first a little difficult to keep up, but practice makes perfect. I wish I could like poses on the app.

Great app

I love it!

Love it, had it for years.

Great app, clean design and clear instructions. Wide variety of styles and intensities and lengths of yoga practices available too.

Love yoga

Perfect for busy life anytime of day
