Remember my morning yoga routine? Ya, that got old....
I found myself just rushing through the motions and not getting the full experience. I know yoga is a practice that I need to work at improving, but there are way too many voices in my head at 6 in the morning to keep my focused on yoga. (Did I brush my teeth? What will I make for lunch? What's the weather like outside? What will I wear today!?!?)
So I went to good ole' Google play store (no iPad here- I'm an Android girl) to find a yoga app.
I found Daily Yoga by imoblife co. ltd (did you know you can download apps/music/etc from your browser and they are sent to your phone or tablet?)
I downloaded the app during the day and was excited to use it the next morning. Then Farmer J asked me to pick him up at the Corner Lot (he drove a tractor out there and needed a ride back to his truck). While I waited for him to get to a stopping point I decided to get off my rear and do some yoga in the wide open spaces of west Texas. It was a beautiful day!
Well, I opened the app and while it had downloaded, I still needed to download each and every yoga session (standing yoga for beginners, sitting yoga for advanced, etc.) So I winged a mini-yoga session out on the field and waited until I got home to download the sessions. That's the thing about wide open spaces....no smart phone reception!
Finally yesterday and today I was able to do my first yoga sessions. They are AWESOME!!! The music is a little loud and sometimes you can't hear the directions over the music, but I LOVE this app!
It helps me push myself in each pose. For example: In mountain pose (which is basically standing up straight), it reminds me to suck in my abs, engage my buttocks and lift my knee caps. Before I would just stand up straight (focused on my back)...not really taking into consideration the other areas of my body what effect my posture.
Is there another yoga app you use?
My hubby has an iPad, is there a better app available on Apple products I should consider?
