Customer Reviews
NOT available as a watch complication 🙄

VERY MISLEADING. I purchased with the intention of using it on my watch but to my disappointment- its not available on my watch. Why is it available in the watch App Store and have pictures in the previews on a watch if its not available on the watch?!?

Great app.

Very straightforward, and the videos are nice guidance. The app is easy to use, with no extra fluff. The overview of all poses is nice.

Love!!!

So excited to make this a routine!

Guy loving yoga

Great app for guys looking for strength and flexibility! Downloaded this app to work on flexibility when my lower back was giving me problems. Been doing 2-3 workouts per week for almost 3 months (30-45 min, intermediate, mostly Mountain routine). I’m able to touch my toes for the first time in my memory. Seeing muscles pop out that I didn’t see when I was in high school working out 15 hours per week. Losing weight in conjunction with minor diet tweets (smaller portions). Wife is very happy with how I’m looking!

Does not show you how to do positions

It seems to be an atlas of yoga positions with a few practices to follow along with. I was hoping it had videos of how to do all the poses, instead it just has a picture and caption. Waste of money.

Very Solid with the Occasional Hiccup

I really like this yoga app. It provides enough to help you get through a routine without trying to get fancy and do a bunch of other stuff. It’s clean and efficient. My only complaint is sometimes it forgets to tell you right or left side when moving. Since yoga is very balanced and the patterns are repeated on each side of your body, it’s easy to lose track of what side you’re supposed to move first. It doesn’t skip that all the time, just occasionally, and on the sun salutations at least, it’s the left side it misses. Besides that, I love this app. I also like it’s companion yoga teacher app that lets you design routines. Very handy!

Suggested posed to support

Some poses like camel have a category listed as “backbend” but there is no backbend category to browse. With that said, there is no baby back pose in the dictionary. Additional poses to consider to add to the dictionary: Horizons lunge Chin stand Star Horse Goddess Tree Fish Supta bahda konasana

Definitely not for beginners

I went to the fitness section of the App Store to try and find a yoga app and seeing as this was the top rated yoga app I just had to try it. However, I was incredibly disappointed not only are the poses really hard to do, the instructor goes really fast and I just end up giving up there are also only 6 routines which is definelty not worth the price, sorry :/

Way too fast

The playback speed is much too fast, and Im not a beginner. No way to slow it down. It's more of a race

Great starting point

Highly Recommended. Every time I use it I like it more. I'm a beginner. I love it. The illustrations are so much more detailed than having an actual. Everything is well thought out. Would love to be able to make up my own routines, after a while you get to appreciate certain poses, in a certain sequence, but I realize the complexities and ad lib, skip around, or find a way do do it the way I prefer. Put it on my iPad, connected with a Bluetooth speaker. 5 stars

I absolutely love this app!

I’m so much more flexible now at 59 years old than I was 10 years ago. I can do my yoga at home without distractions any time I want. Great app with lots of options. Something for everyone!

Definitely worth the cost

And no constant berating for costly upgrades like other apps. Thank you!

Meh

This is a good app with some good features, however; the beginners option goes so fast how are you supposed to keep up? I get it if that was expert mode, but people who are just starting out and don’t know the poses well or aren’t used to doing them cannot keep up. This makes the app difficult to use and not very relaxing.

Bitmoji for Pocket Yoga?

Why does it have to be just a white, female teacher? Why can’t I customize the character so it looks like me, a dude? There should be options for different genders, skin tones, and hair styles. Next update?

Great app

I really enjoy this app. I can take it with me to the beach or use it around the house. I use YouTube a lot for yoga floss. This has been a great change of pace.

5 years and counting

I easily get bored with same exercises . This app has been a staple for half a decade for me now .. anywhere I go from hotels to airports and feel the need to stretch or do a full blown yoga session this app is an amazing Companion . 2 thumbs up !

Great app

This app is simply wonderful

Good Workout

Some beginner poses are not really beginner... over all a great app!

Super well done yoga app

This is the first time I’ve ever felt compelled to write a review. This app is very well done. Clean and clear pose graphics. Very nicely done audio. Printable session sets are nice. Apple Watch integration is great. My only suggestion is a little haptic tap for the breathing and/or pose changes. Maybe single for breaths and double for pose changes. Would let you do it in silence.

Good Review

I like the app, it’s really easy for beginners to follow along. I just wish that there were more guided yoga practices...

No monthly charge!!!

This makes learning yoga very do-able. I have my little yoga space downstairs and I put my phone in my pocket and my earbuds where they go and clumsily move my 62 year old body through the beginner level practices. I can do this! Nothing is annoying about the app, considering the low, one time cost.

Simple & easy

I wasn’t looking for complicated or intense. Just a simple yoga routine to follow at home and this is it. Don’t get me wrong, it’s really good and I love it! One of the best parts is that I can airplay to my TV and it’s full screen so it’s like a studio at home but then when I travel I take it with me.

Great app!

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!

Bad and frustrating.

The app design is nice, and the way it works with the Apple TV mirroring is very helpful too. But, every time they say “inhale” and “exhale” I want to punch them because it sounds so weird. The timing of the breathing prompts is really bad too. Speaking of timing, they fly through the poses. By the time you get into a pose it’s time for the next. There’s no stretching because you don’t have time. They also don’t show any kind of transitions or explain how to do any of these movements. You can’t just magically pop into the next position like the illustrations do. Going between positions is a big part of the exercise that is completely left out. I couldn’t tolerate more than 5 minutes of this app.

Annoying

Couldn’t make it past the first few poses with the audio guidance saying inhaaaaaaale and exhaaaaaale in a robotic voice. The poses would also transition in 1 second an send rushed. Waste of money if you like to enjoy your yoga experience.

Pleased

I’m really pretty pleased with this. Simple, FREE and has a small variety of practices to choose from.

Sanskrit voice, Spotify

Good, not perfect! Recording Sanskrit voice for postures is a must! Choosing between a few voices would be nice. There's a Spotify account link in settings but I couldn't figure out how to play it from the app

I’m into yoga because of this app

I did it here and there for s long time on the app. Then one day I did it everyday. I go to a class once and a while and surprise myself with how well I keep up.

App does not open

I bought the app, but whenever I try to open it it closes on me. I’m not sure what’s going on, but it looks like a glitch. What do I do ?

Great App!

A must have app if you are starting out your yoga adventure. Great flow with different levels of difficulty and times. And you can get a session in anywhere in the world!

Not worth the money

You get 5 workouts and 2 are sun salutations. The rest of the app is poses. You can't even create your own flow sequence. The poses are illustrated not live people.

Great app! Easy to follow.

Very enjoyable with good flows.

After baby!

Perfect app to get me back into practicing yoga post baby!

Disappointing

Goes way too fast to get into proper poses. Also is too repetitive and does one or two things for the entire hour. Wish I saved my money.

More program please

Love the all programmed sessions. But after completing each of them it feels a bit bored. Please add more sessions.

Never done yoga...way to inflexible...but

This app has encouraged me to try. I’m on day two and I did the sun thing yesterday on beginner 3 times. Done it twice today. I had back surgery when I was 14 and have struggled with episodes of pain, so I’m hoping this strengthening will help. Unfortunately, my hamstring are very tight...goes back to the original injury...so I do my best. May be wrong, but it feels good to stretch in these dynamic ways.

The voiceover instructions are BAD!

I don’t write app reviews often but I had such a bad experience with Pocket Yoga that I have to say something about it. First off, the voiceover sounds like a robot. It’s like Siri giving you the instructions in an unbearably monotonous voice with a weird intonation. I’m sure with all the money they get from their users the developers of this app can hire a voice actor or actress to narrate the practices so it feels more organic. Second, the instructions are incomplete. They don’t include intermediary poses when transitioning from one pose to another. I was doing the Desert practice and at one point the instructions told me to go from an extended side angle pose to a low push up in one exhale. Like come on, really? Third, when you’re holding a pose for several breaths the monotonous voiceover starts counting down the seconds. There’s no way anyone can get over the repetitive monotonous Siri-like countdown and actually focus on the practice. I was screaming inside my head for the voiceover to just SHUT UP so I can stay in the pose in silence for one minute! Also, with all the money they collect couldn’t the app developers actually find someone real to put in the video? It’s easy for an animation to switch between child’s pose and upward facing dog in the blink of an eye and repeat it like 10 times, but the “flow” is not so smooth when I do it. Maybe if there was a real person actually going through the sequence it would give me an idea as to what I can improve on. Overall, worst App Store purchase ever! I wish there was a way I could return it.

Awesome

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

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

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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

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.
