If you’re enjoying Pocket Yoga, please leave us a review or rating in the App Store. It really helps us. Namaste!
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?!?
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.
So excited to make this a routine!
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!
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.
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!
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
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 :/
The playback speed is much too fast, and Im not a beginner. No way to slow it down. It's more of a race
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
It’s a pretty inexpensive app but I’m disappointed with how little content is available initially. You have to earn “karma” points to unlock further content so at present, there are only 3 routines plus 2 sun salutation programs available. These 5 items are really similar too and l don’t appreciate this sort of levelling up required to gain access to content I’ve already paid for. The routines themselves are fine, if lacking variety. Also, the music is bit too prominent and the voice is super irritating. She mispronounces words (“er” instead is “earth”)and says “inhaaaaale”. Argh! Anyway, once I was able to zone her out I found the routines ok.
Just completed my first session and I have to say I am so impressed. It was challenging, but very relaxing and calming. I would highly recommend this app to anyone. Well worth the $5
If you’re looking for yoga as meditation this app is not for you! The yoga routines are suited to those who enjoy a more vigorous routine which gets the blood flowing. Moves very quick sometimes. I’d love for the developer to add a mode that focuses solely on meditation/ going slow and focusing on that aspect more. In addition the app could benefit from a little bell or something to signal the end of the routine. Thanks for the streamlined app, keep making it even better.
Love how easy the routines are to follow, wish there were more.
The beginner program starts OK for about 10 minutes and then the voice rushes through the movements like you are a trained athlete. I tried several times with the different options, which are pretty much the same. Deleting the app now and wished I hadn’t purchased. I’ll just go back to following a beginners program on YouTube,
It’s a pity that yoga is defined as asana, but in accordance with yoga asana it would be greater if you stayed with true yogic names not perverting more of the course to enlightenment.
Easy to use and for beginners to get started with Yoga.
I’m often traveling internationally and I always lose my strength and suppleness over those weeks and then get home and have to start again. Downloading this program has helped me to stay in shape and aids my suppleness. I walk easier, I feel better! It’s really good! Thanks guys. Easy to do and easy to use 🤓
A really great yoga app. I have been to a few yoga classes but would still consider myself a beginner. Easy to follow and love the option of 30, 45 or 60 min workout!
Purchased this app over a year ago and was originally impressed with it, I feel now that it needs a few updates. Back when I purchased it, the “create your own routine” was available and imbedded in this original app. I am very disheartened to see it is now a separate app or bundle purchase that I would need to repurchase. That’s pretty bad! There REALLY needs to be more variety in the routines, not just 3 routines in each of the sections. There is way too much boredom happening! There has to be some variation! Without offering the ability to create your own routine WITHIN this original app, I say skip it! Not worth the money! There HAS to be more updates! On top of that, I would like to see shorter session offerings. I allot myself only 15 minutes in the morning and usually do another short session in the afternoon. Not everyone can fit in a 30 minute minimum routine every day. I hate to say this, but it may be time to switch apps!
So the yoga routines are good, good explanations and the poses are explained well. However, this should not be advertised as usable with Apple Watch. It tracks on exercise minutes. The apps keeps saying it cannot read heart rate even though I have allowed it in settings and it does not track calories toward your move goal. Do not download for use with Apple Watch. I am very angry I paid for this app believing it was compatible.
I saw good reviews and it was one of the top recommended yoga apps for the Apple Watch..I was expecting it to buzz on my wrist and some of he moves are going by to fast-from standing pose to plank in one breath, or from child pose to upward dog in one breath..not enough time to move like that for yoga..
I’m still hoping to figure this app out! I feel like I wasted my time and money. I will change my rating if and when I want to spend more time on it .
I’ve been using pocket yoga for a few years and I believe that this app is effective. I would suggest of being able to select your own yogi avatar that may reflect the user. For example, options for male or female, skin color, height and weight. Also, I would find it useful if there was a bell at the end of each yoga session. I tend to get so relaxed I fall asleep. Overall, great app and I frequently recommend it to my friends.
This app is perfect for me. I have taken very few live classes and this app will allow me to practice at home and learn the poses. Love it! Can’t wait to level up and challenge myself in the comfort of my home and on my schedule. Highly recommend this easy to follow structure.
Not only is this app way to fast between poses. Completely unrealistic doesn't even let you switch for longer time frames. I can't even get in a stretch before having to change. Don't recommend it.
Let’s me practice yoga at my own pace on my own schedule wherever I go. Has helped my body and mind greatly.
Terrific! Really perfect if you don’t want to spend 2 hours going to a yoga studio!
Love having this with me wherever I go!
not helpful at all!
Great! Just a little inhuman at some points!
Well worth it. It's like having a private lesson.
After practicing vinyasa flow in a yoga class, this app is perfect for continuing practice at a time that suits me, at home. Perfect and gentle on my joints.
This app is great for An experienced or learning yoga enthusiast. It guides you along through a practice. Worth the price. It's only drawback is that when played on Apple TV it only plays sound and not picture.
