I think this app would be better if the flows were like they are supposed to be and the actual pose names were used. I think i rather use my yoga teacher's instructions than this app. Allie Van Fosten is my number one yoga gal and knows the names, plus her voice is true and pleasant! I'm uninstalling this app!

I find this routine perfect for cool down stretching. A great way to end a workout.

Just a suggestion ...you should take help from some traditional yoga guru who can tell you the original authentic Surya Namaskaar ...and please stop giving ridiculouslyfunny names to yoga asanas !!! Otherwise you guys doing a great job.... :)))

The Audio prompts work well for other exercises, but not for yoga, where you need flow of movement.

Unforunately, the moves aren't fast enough on this to be able to maintain a single breath for each move which I think is the goal. I've attempted to create my own version but they don't have the audio cues - not sure what I'm doing wrong!
