FitStar Yoga - Increase Flexibility, Lose Weight, & Reduce Stress with Personalized Video Fitness Workouts Led By Tara Stiles is an iPhone and iPad that will help you to practice yoga anytime, anywhere! Whether you are looking to increase your flexibility, lose weight, or just to reduce stress, there is a sequence for you.
FitStar Yoga will help you increase your health. From beginner right through expert there is always a sequence ready for you. When traveling, or busy at home, just grab your mat or a towel and based on your feedback, goals, and capabilities, you will get a personalized sequence.
Regardless of your fitness goals, there is a workout for you in this app. Right in the introduction you meet Tara Stiles and she explains the app. You select your perceived ability level from Beginner to Advanced, and then complete a 17-minute, 44-pose workout that helps the app assess your ability and flexibility in order to better set your workouts.
Following this, you are introduced to the package options. The premium has unlimited workouts, and the basic allows for one per week. Many people want to start doing a routine daily, but often it is best to start small goals such as once a week to make sure you can maintain it. For myself, I do much better when I initially make the promise to myself to workout every Sunday morning, for example.
Customize Your Routine
FitStar Yoga has many customization options. You can choose the music, the duration, intensity, and then track your progress and milestones through the Health app. You can connect your AppleTV for easier viewing, and you can also connect your Fitbit, Jawbone UP, or MyFitnessPal account to consolidate your information.
The instructor doesn’t make you feel inadequate, and encourages you to work with your current ability and flexibility limitations. I enjoyed watching and trying the various moves to see the adaptations such as bending an injured knee a certain way to protect it from injury, while also teaching you how to improve your knee health.

FitStar Yoga - Increase Flexibility, Lose Weight, & Reduce Stress with Personalized Video Fitness Workouts Led By Tara Stiles is an iPhone and iPad app that does a fantastic job of covering all yoga abilities and experience levels. If you are recovering from an accident or injury, you can input those factors to better rehabilitate your injury. If you are an expert looking to expand your skills, then you can do that too! Overall, this is a very well-designed app, and I would recommend it to anyone who doesn’t want to keep a yoga video on their device.
