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.
As a beginner, I've been able to find the right length, difficulty and pace. Great app!
Pocket Yoga Review by Pathdoc70
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.

Looove it! Great for travel! Swear it's Pam from True Blood narrating.
Simple and Powerful by DebStock
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!!! by Brittbritt464
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! by ThursdayBlonde
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.

Love this app!
Such relief after a bad day by AkiKikyo
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 by JH-H
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 by Me-ish
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 by ggdos
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 by Sdot8888
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 by ljbikes
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 by katemonstar
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 by 'Avi' Ron
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. by Jayboswee
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 by aRodeoJock
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. by I Chase Chickens
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 by MrBucky
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!! by JLJ925
Perfect at home app.
Excellent! by PudriK
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! by Patossette
I highly recommend it. I have been using it for years. Simple, easy to follow.
Very convenient! by Bender131975
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! by ArtKid500090000
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 by Aubre :)
I love it!
Love it, had it for years. by samtcook
Great app, clean design and clear instructions. Wide variety of styles and intensities and lengths of yoga practices available too.
Love yoga by Eliz1621
Perfect for busy life anytime of day
Great app! by LizardKing1971
I was looking for a great stretch to do in the am (I do Pilates in the pm). The sun salutation can be customized to your time table. Highly recommend it!
Great App for Busy Lifestyle by Timlukefrac
This app is perfect for the traveler who can't get to a Yoga class. I use it daily and have experienced great health benefits. Get the app today and start feeling better!!
Terrible teacher voice by Stoneyprincess
Wish I could get my money back I can't stand the sound of the teachers voice. Add an option for just the pose names or tings. I deleted the app entirely
Great yoga app by Green travel pro
Reliable easy to use and effective!
Great yoga app by PWHHH
I like everything about it.
Love it. by baslpxclsls
So great for getting in a quick yoga session and workout into my day.
Keeps you going by D-T-Star
Very useful for keeping up with daily practices. Love the Karma points. I like that when you up your time they don't throw in a bunch of the same moves. There's enough new info to keep the mind engaged and not bored with repetition.
Wonderful discovery. by Ladyatc
And it is ALWAYS with me when I get a moment. Love the customization options, can't wait to dig deeper into this app
Great for the road by Cristydoc
This was a great way to keep my new yoga practice going, even on the road. Having decided to try yoga for the first time it was hard not be able to practice during trips. This app gave me just enough to keep me in the swing of things. Very simple to use. Occasionally I have to decipher some of the poses but that is likely more due to my novice status.
Love it by Juan171107
It's easy and practice to used
Awful App!! by Ssufian525
Do not purchase this app!! It is not good for yoga at all. Gives you no time to get into the poses, and the sessions are awful. Don't waste your money.
Recommend this app! by emayoral
It is great! Get to do yoga with some variety!
Brilliant!! by Sanfordglass
Keeps me motivated and I love the different backgrounds!!
Clean, Fast, Effective by cahuntington
Pocket Yoga is everything you need in a guided yoga app. While it doesn’t allow you to create your own yoga routines, the designers have a second app for that purpose. That makes sense to me. For most people, the guided routines built into this app will be enough. The design is really nice, the instructions for each move, each transition are clear. I’ve been using it for 5-6 years, and I love it.
5 Stars by Beauogi
I just got this app and love using it! This is a great and gentle way to start each morning.
Good & Easy to Follow by Brkroon
I love this app for my morning yoga. Helps me to mix it up. Very easy to follow
Great yoga app by OSX and iOS user
Practice anywhere with this great yoga app!
Yoga drill sergeant by MickeyHadick.com
The routines included with the paid app are very good. Comparable to my favourite instructor.
There are high intensity interval training moments that can be quite a workout but i'm really enjoying the app.
Review by Marcus McDorman
Great simple and easy to use for a novice. Improved flexibility and breathing has improved with this app.
Beautiful by GVinHI
This app is a great method to keep up a regular yoga practice under any circumstances. I have a newborn so going to a yoga studio is temporarily out. This app helps me and it is beautiful.
Great! by Dishion
I love this app!
I love Pocket Yoga! by yogafan210
Pocket Yoga is great for my fitness and health. I have been used it from my iPhone and then also with my Apple watch. The activity ring is perfect to track my progress!
Thanks to Rainfrog LLC developers for this app which well deserves 5 stars and even more. Pocket Yoga is Fantastic and is even getting better and better with each update. I highly recommend it!
Most Perfect Yoga App by yogafan210
I have been used this app for years and I highly recommend it: Pocket Yoga is very convenient and perfect. It can be accessed from anywhere (home, beach, park, hotel etc) and it provides a detailed explanation of each pose and practice. Pocket Yoga is reaching perfection because is continually improving in each new release. It is very natural how each user adjusts the challenges to face and for the end of the practice to feel amazingly well. Your body and soul will be rewarded for using Pocket Yoga.
