I’ve always been one of those people that has found yoga a bit underwhelming. The standing still…the heavy breathing…the sweaty air…and sometimes the passing of unpleasing gas from fellow yogis has always left me feeling, well a little less than thrilled. Well, tonight all that changed.
After feeling incredibly sore after teaching my Butts & Guts Class last night, I knew that tonight’s workout would need to be a recovery workout. But, I didn’t feel like doing your run of the mill foam roll and stretch session, so I decided to take a gander at some yoga apps in the iTunes Store. I clicked on a few here and there, not really finding any of them appealing. Then I clicked on FitStar Yoga. The reviews were ok, and I had just gotten both of my youngest babies asleep, so I decided to give it a try. (It was also a free download)
To start, it took me through a fitness test that was 18 minutes long and 46 poses in total. I was able to rate the difficulty of each pose as I went through the fitness test much to my surprise, I was finding myself relaxing AND getting a great stretch. So, I kept going and before I knew it, found myself looking for the next workout.
Scrolling through, I found more workouts, but the ones I wanted to try were locked so I thought maybe I’d check out the membership option…you know…just incase I might want to TRY this yoga thing. WELL…I’m hooked.
I bought it for the entire year for $29.99 that included unlimited workouts, full support, and CUSTOMIZATION ($7.99/month option too). After my second CUSTOMIZED yoga workout for the night, (with membership you can request how difficult the workout is) I’m looking forward to many more days of trying out this app. Who knew the anti-yogi would go for the yoga app? Well, at this point, I’m feeling relaxed, stretched out and recovered which is what ANY mother of 3 wants after a long day home with the kids!! Yay for yoga!
Happy Fitstar Yoga Workouts to come!
