  • So far so good! Dec 29, 2017

    By sherryCT
    I have been practicing yoga on and off for 10 years and just started up again with a small class once a week. I wanted to supplement my class practices at home with something I could do daily. I have used other yoga apps before but they were ‘meh’. I like this one as you have a real person narrating, you can see them in the poses and you have a music selection. You can do a full on hour long practice or a quick 10-20 minute one. You can do beginner or advanced (I am beginner/intermediate). I have done about 4 practices so far with this app. The only thing I would caution folks about is to be sure you are doing things correctly. I cannot stress enough the helpfulness of a real class with a real teacher to tell you when you are not in a pose correctly, or maybe alternate forms of the pose if you have neck, shoulder, hip, whatever issues. This statement is not for just this app but for anyone who wants to start yoga and think it is a good idea to do it via app only without instruction. You can hurt yourself. Instruction also helps you improve your yoga ability. One awesome thing that could be added is a meditation ‘set’ here. Say at the end of a short stretching yoga practice, spend say about 5-10 minutes with a guided meditation. Something to think about but in no way detracts from this app. Maybe it is here already and I have not found it yet. I know there are separate apps for this. Namaste!

    You guys are amazing. This app is incredible, I've recommended to my mom and three of my friends already. The amount of work you must have put into making and running this app is amazing. I tried out a bunch of different apps to compare and this app was by far the best one. The online Facebook group has helped to make me still feel connected during covid. Thank you so much. Also this app has an option right now for kids stuck at home because of covid, my kids love it.

  • Best yoga app I've used Sep 29, 2017

    By Lostbonsai
    I'm astounded. They got it all right with this app, and it's hard for for me to find the patience for yoga. The process and the way I feel afterward is amazing, and I never feel patronized, pseudo-spiritual, or like I'm trying to be a soccer mom. From the language used in the narration, the soothing yet energizing voice, the musical selections (and option for no music) the quality of the images.. I'm just really happy with Down Dog. Evidently there are in app purchases, but I probably wouldn't have realized that if it wasn't indicated on the app description. It's not in-your-face at all - I'm going to have to go back and search for them. And I will, because the quality of the free product is so amazing. Maybe I sound like I'm gushing- it's just that I have never had the patience for yoga before. It was one of those things I thought I maybe "should" do. I have used this app 5 times in 7 days, and always feel amazing afterwards. UPDATE: it's over a year later, and I'm still using and loving Down Dog. I also paid for the upgrade, mostly because I wanted to support them so much, but it also unlocked some great features. I am impressed with how the app has evolved and how responsive the team is. Even when life is at its most chaotic, I can fit their 10 minute sessions in every night before I go to sleep, and longer sessions during the day whenever I can. Thank you, Down Dog!

    lovely app with lots of customizations for yoga. gentle voice, fantastic music selection (or no music for those who want that!) as well as options for types of yoga and boosts (really appreciate the hamstring boost). Also love the offer given to student and healthcare workers during COVID! It was super kind (and I'm definitely taking advantage of it).

    I started off with this app a little over a year ago when I wanted to start meditating and centering my mind due to anxiety. I didn’t want to go to yoga classes because they are very expensive and I was afraid of looking dumb and inflexible. I practiced each day for at least 10 min for about 3 months, I then saw a deal on Groupon for some classes at a local yoga studio and I bought it. After the first class the teacher came up to me and said they were happy to see a new face and that they hoped they see me again. They asked me if I had been practicing long and I informed them that I had been practicing for about three months, they then asked WHAT STUDIO I WENT TOO!? Hahah they were surprised when I said it was a app. Down dog! I recommend this app to all my friends and family who want to start their yoga journey. I had their free version on my phone for about 8 months, I now have the paid version because I trusted the app and was willing to pay a small price compared to what i would pay at a yoga studio each month. I was prepared to deepen my practice, and I knew this app would help. Now here I am a year and a half later, loving this app still (using this for a majority of my practice) and anxious to be attending a yoga institute in July 2018 to become a yoga teacher! I love yoga and I Love this app. I cannot stress that enough!

    Absolutely brilliant!! This app has so many lovely workouts to choose from. The reason I gave this app a 4 star instead of 5 is because in the sun salutation practice it only teaches sun salutation of ashtanga yoga and not the original sun salutation the one which has tons of benefits and can be performed by all. I request the makers to please make it available if possible. Thank you for creating this amazing application!! And also to the teachers.

    This app is awesome, would highly recommend. I'd just like to point out that recently, the background music has millisecond stops in it. For example, right after sivasana, when I'm told to continue laying for as long as I want, the music will have a little stop. It happens during the practice too and it didn't used to happen.

    I love this app/company because it allows me to have a daily yoga practice when I can’t go into a studio regularly. The app handles everything you need in a full practice and even has different versions of yoga practices. A couple problems that I’ve noticed is: 1. When practicing, the instruction from the instructor often does not align with the visual practitioner on the screen. Ie.) “warrior 2 with left arm up and right leg back” often shows actually the opposite on the screen. The person will actually have the right arm up and left leg back (the opposite). So that’s slightly confusing. And 2. The app glitches sometimes. Even with a downloaded practice, the app will glitch and not play smoothly. During a yoga practice, rhythm is a big factor. So, being interrupted by lagging tech can be tedious. Also, when toggling back or forward, it takes the app longer than it should to switch to another pose/position within the given practice. Simply, slow tech. These are the two main fixes I hope to see DownDog improve on, or their competitors strive in. If a competitor performed the above elements better, I would switch my subscription to them. Perhaps this is a simple tech solution. -DG

    The best feature I appreciate: no need to browse and choose from different workouts. Simply set the time and the difficulty, and each exercise is automatically different each time. Genius. Keep it simple and focus on developing the yoga sequences. The platform itself is already quite intuitive and well balanced.

  • It does the job for me! Mar 11, 2019

    By HeatM1981
    I like how I can customize the practice options. Length, focus on a body part or function, type of music, speed, instructor, and more. I have mine on beginner 1 and still find some of the pose suggestions a bit advanced. I wish like most classes I’ve been to in person they had instruction that started basic, and then options to increase the postures (the video instructors are able to perform them well so if I can’t bend or move like they can it’s hard to know the right but “lesser” pose options. As a beginner I love the reminders for breathing sprinkled in as well as reminders to adjust the posture so you are getting it correct. Sometimes the flows seem repetitive with a LOT of down dog, plank, up dog, down dog sequences in a row - but maybe this is a style I’m just not familiar with in the “in person” classes I’ve taken. I love that you can also lengthen shavasana at the end or even remain listening if you forgot to lengthen it. Overall the app is a deal if you buy in during the holidays and works great for an at home option to get you through the week of you can’t make or can’t afford a group lesson.

    The new update caused issues with the volume. It is now automatically set so that the voice is the loudest and the music is barely a whisper in the background. I used to be able to set the level of voice compared to music in the general settings, but now I can only change it when a video is playing and that causes the video to pause for a minute or two. Then the next time I go to play a video the volume has reset back to the voice being at 100% and the music being a whisper in the background.
