Of course before you get started on any of them it's always recommended that you find a quiet place where you can stretch out and use your mat while performing the moves. To motivate you further there are unlockables available. As you perform more and more sessions you can unlock a total of 10 environments to enjoy.

The moves that you will be using in this app are from the school of Gaia Flow Yoga, which is well known all around the world by yoga enthusiasts.

 

During Your Session

Launch the app and set up your session so you can begin to enjoy the benefits of yoga. Each pose features images so that you know the exact right position and posture to use. To help you further there are also voice instructions so you won't have any questions about the pose. These instructions even let you know when you should be exhaling and inhaling. It’s really a complete experience that feels very much like a yoga class that you would need to spend plenty of money on to attend.

A very cool feature is the dictionary of poses. This is ideal for beginners as it details all the different yoga poses and also highlights why the pose is beneficial.

Before beginning a pose you can preview it to see if it's one you want to do. The app will log all your sessions, which is great when you are trying to challenge yourself. If you enjoy listening to music while you practice yoga you can choose tracks from your Library.
