Yoga Studio App Review

on April 9, 2015

There is no way on this earth that you are going to get me to go to an actual yoga studio.



That being said, I know yoga can only help me become a more flexible runner. Introducing – the Yoga Studio app for iOS. I’ve had a lot of people ask me what I do for yoga, so I’m going to show you a bit about the app. My cousin recommended the app to me initially and I figured it was worth the $3.99 to try it out. It has thousands of reviews and a 5-star rating so that’s a win-win in my book.

There are several ways you can use the app. There are pre-built studio classes that you can download or you can also build your own. I like that they give you the option of choosing a routine based on what it will help you with. I use flexibility the most, but the combos are good, too.




You also have the option of creating your own class by adding together whatever poses you’d like to perform. I have yet to use this feature because I haven’t a clue on how to put them together effectively, but I think it’s a great option to have available.



I had Tara snap some pics of me doing the 30 min Beginner Flexibility course to show you some of the poses that are incorporated. I’m really happy to see how well my Downward Dog has progressed so that I can almost touch my heels to the ground now. You will also notice my “supervisor” Delilah in the pics on occasion. She gets concerned when I’m on the ground and will spend much of the session coming over to check on me or trying to lay on top of me and get cozy.












My favorite pose – Corpse Pose! HAHA!

    Nice!! It’s good to know what’s a good yoga app out there. Corpse pose is my favorite too… that or child’s pose 🙂

  2. Hmm do you know if they have it for android? Looks like a really good app!

  3. NIce! I still can’t get my heels anywhere near the floor in down dog. But the one thing I’ve learned from yoga is that every body is different and there are some things that are so hard for me (basically anything involving hip flexibility) and then other things that I totally love (side plank).

  4. Thanks for sharing this cool app! I love yoga and love how it makes me feel; I don’t love how I never make time to practice it, though.

      I know! That’s the problem right there. I do my best to get it done twice a week, but I’ve been off schedule the past couple of weeks.

  5. Harlee also supervises anytime I am doing anything on the floor. Such helpers!

  6. That looks like a pretty cool app, I am horrible at sticking to yoga. Child’s pose makes my head hurt- ha! Kimi decides to supervise every time I do a kettlebell dvd. Because that’s not nerve wracking while swinging a 10lb weight. 🙂

    Ha, that last pose is my favorite too! I have a couple of yoga DVDs that I really like. There’s one called Vinyasa Flow (or something like that) by Rainbow Mars (yes, I know). Super groovy, but it’s a good one.

    Ooo this is very cool! I do a lot of yoga at home because I don’t have time to get to the studio. This would help me out a lot!
