Over the last couple of weeks I’ve accumulated a fair number of yoga apps on my iPod Touch. Though I haven’t played around with them enough to decide which ones I like best, here’s the current list of yoga apps on my iPod [links go to iTunes App Store]:
- Yoga Stretch
- 101 Yoga Poses
- Yoga Trainer Pro
- Mind Body Yoga
- Yoga Journal’s iPractice Yoga
- Yoga Easy
- Yoga Teacher
- Authentic Yoga
I did most of the primary series yesterday using the iPhone YogaMat app to follow along with an Ashtanga podcast I downloaded on iTunes. The app thing worked much better than I expected, especially since the full version of the YogaMat app has the primary and intermediate series sequences already programmed in. However, the YogaMat app only has poses, no instruction. The little stick figure guys are great though.
That worked so well that I decided to practice today with Yoga Journal’s iPractice app. The iPractice app has voice instruction and background music to practice with. The full version of iPractice has 15 complete classes. It’s basically Yoga Journal’s “Home Practice” section on steroids. Having some good yoga instruction on my iPod made squeezing yoga practice into a busy day away from home a cinch.
FYI: This weekend only, if you’re looking for a nice yoga app, Authentic Yoga with Deepak
Chopra and Tara Stiles is on sale for 99 cents. I bought it for $2.99, so that’s a real good deal. It’s one of the best looking yoga apps I’ve seen and it has tons of great video and audio instruction. Highly recommended!
