With an open platform like Android and so many fitness freaks all around us we should not be surprised by the abundance of yoga apps in the Google Play Store. Some offer photos of basic poses while others offer training videos and more.
I’m not a fitness buff but I like doing some yoga now and then. I have tried out some random yoga apps on the Play Store and didn’t find them satisfying at all. No one app provided an all in one package. While others were a bit more complex to understand, Daily Yoga provides good and simple content if not a very large variety.
We're giving stuff away to help celebrate our tenth anniversary. Are you in?
Daily Yoga, an app by IMOBLIFE Co. Ltd. offers an all in one package for all your yoga needs. And, be it a yoga expert or just a beginner, there’s something for everyone.
Upon opening the app you have the option to start your yoga by choosing a training session from the pose library. A small description is provided for every session, telling about the difficulty and its goal. Each yoga session is available as a separate downloadable plugin from the Play Store.
Every individual yoga session provides easy to follow videos for different types of activities. A yoga professional demonstrates the poses with a narrative and soothing background music.
There are more than 30 sessions for you to choose from in all. Many are freely downloadable, while there are some paid ones as well. The app also contains a vast pose library if you want to try out individual yoga poses apart from regular training. Daily Yoga also offers a collection of relaxing Yoga Music to help you meditate and exercise better.
If you don’t know where to begin, fear not. Daily Yoga also provides 8 programs including one for beginners, weight loss and even for yoga during menstruation. These are a mix of yoga routines that one can follow without any hassle. As with the yoga sessions, the programs also come follow a free/pro methodology.
Daily Yoga follows a subscription based purchase system meaning once you subscribe you get access to all pro content and an ad-free experience as well. Monthly subscription are priced $4.99 and yearly can be had for a discounted rate of $29.99. Personally, I would have really loved a one time purchase option.
We know that, sometimes, doing yoga gets boring or we have some questions in mind. Perhaps you’re in need of a little motivation after many yoga sessions with slow results. Daily Yoga also has a community where you can discuss all about yoga.
As much as I liked this app there are things that did bother me. For starters, the app launches in a fixed landscape orientation that doesn’t rotate at all – not even 180-degrees.
Also, it can be a bit difficult to navigate when you start. A small “getting started” tutorial that can be dismissed wouldn’t hurt to have.
The app is free to download but comes with a few ads which pop-up only when you exit any session and are not that annoying as well.
Check out the download link below and get on the road to some inner peace.
What we like:
- All-in-one yoga app
- Good for beginners and pros alike
- Variety of content
What needs improvement:
- Fixed landscape orientation
- Get started tutorial for first time users
- One time purchases option
