I have a new favorite workout app and I couldn't wait to share it with you all! Yogify by EA games has been helping me keep my new year's resolution of yoga 2 times a week. And I'm absolutely loving it. Here's why:
Yogify is a yoga workout app complete with music, audio instruction, video instruction, multiple levels and target zones. Plus it's free and you can take it with you anywhere you go.
Ease of Use: Crazy easy, and ultra pretty. I may be partial to the turquoise and calming green, but even then the images are crystal clear, and beautifully photographed.
Instensity: Yogify has three levels, 1,2,3 for beginner intermediate and advanced. I'm certainly a novice at yoga and I love that the beginner levels aren't too intimidating. Yoga is a process of continual growth, and I'm happy to know that the workouts will grow with me.
Duration: Workouts last anywhere from 15 minutes to an entire hour and the free classes go up to 45 minutes. I like having the shorter workouts for a first thing in the morning and the longer classes for an afternoon-evening relaxation and strengthening time. If you have 15 minutes, you have enough time to get yourself centered again.
Video: I'm no pro at yoga, although one day I'd love to be. So until then, I'm learning along the way. The instructional videos really help with that. The woman's voice is calm and inspirational. The descriptions of the movements from one yoga pose to another really help you to focus on every muscle that you're using. If you miss the description, you can pause it and read the instructions too. Yogify also gives you the option of using your own music, no music at all, or yogify's playlist. Personally, I opt for the "Yoga Exercise" station on Pandora Radio.
How to use it: Pour yourself a glass of water, lay out your yoga mat, dim the lights to block out other distractions (for me it's turning on my yogified white Christmas light dorm room decor), play that "Yoga Exercise" Pandora station, look in the mirror and say "I love you" and hit "Begin class."
In love and health,
