  • Want my original version back! Jun 25, 2018

    By LLA-Loving Life Always
    I paid for the original version many years ago and was very extremely happy with this app and I have always rated it high. However, now there are more options to choose from but I have to pay a monthly fee which I am not interested in - would want to only see the classes that were included with the original purchase so I don’t see the other options. If you want me to be a beta user for any new classes you are introducing, offer it to me as a free trial and I will provide feedback, but for now I would love to have my clean original version of the Yoga Studio App back. Previous review: It has been years now that I have been using this app and still love it. I have built strength in the process and now am able to follow the Advance collection. I am amazed by how well this App is designed and the transition from one pose to the next is flawless. I would love to see more options under the Advance Collection that are harder but shorter. Please add breathing exercises as well which will take this already awesome app to a whole new level. I thank Yoga Studio for guiding me and helping me become a better Yogi. This app is highly recommended for all individuals at any level in their Yoga Quest.

  • Let me tell you why this app is 5 Star worthy Jul 29, 2019

    By Perfectsadie
    First, I have a personal hatred of subscription apps. When your subscription ends, you have nothing. 😡I’d greatly prefer to pay for it outright, even if it’s a steep price or if I have to pay again for new content. However, I’ve been wanting to get back into yoga and was dead tired of the DVDS I bought way back when. (I also have a personal hatred of yoga classes, so that’s out.) I decided to give Yoga Studio a try. I figured I’d know within 7 days (the free trial) if I liked it. And I do! It actually only took three days to decide I love it. I love that there’s something for my years away from yoga self that makes me feel I can do it again but is challenging, too. The variety is also impressive. In over month of practicing at least three times per week I’ve only repeated classes because I particularly liked them. There is plenty of content to do a new class every day. I also like being able to create my own class “mixes” from other classes. The teachers are clear and calm and the music is not intrusive. I like that it syncs with Apple Health automatically, and I like the calendar that tracks your sessions and allows you to schedule classes for reminders. I really do love Yoga Studio. The only thing I’d change is switch from subscription to purchase.

    Ice used this app for years, and I used to think it was a five star app. However, when it switched to the subscription version, it also came with some annoying bugs that have never been fixed. For example, the vinyasa block 2 has a big glitch in it, and in other blocks (and on self created classes) some poses are not announced. Lately, the music is missing for some classes. I've also had problems compiling a few self created classes. I cancelled my subscription. Not worth the money anymore.

    I think I began using this app roughly 4-5 (maybe even 6)years ago. There was nothing as awesome as this for free then and even for the new price point, there is still nothing that much compares. I do look out of curiosity but I am astounded that this app still leaves a lot of other yoga apps in the dust especially when it comes to clear rich and straightforward instruction . I've started this review several times and realized, I think I have sent it and haven't. I continue to rely heavily on this app and only one other that is more pricey but is worth it. I had generally liked the direction of things until the hip hop yoga. I am a fan of hip hop but I am not sure this was the best matched instructor or best use of innovation. Despite that, I do look forward to some of the other things that are coming. We are overdue for some pranayama. So thanks! In my humble opinion, I'd hoped to see some expansion of the various essentials, like a 15-minute intermediate essential practice for balance or a deeper dive into the the different kinds of sun salutations. I am a big fan of the earth salutations(noting there are a lot of balancing poses in those practices) and earth meditations. Overall, keep coming with the great offerings. We are all growing.

    This app created a Google Calendar that cannot be deleted, even after uninstalling the app. Also, still mad about the bait-and-switch from one-time to subscription-based payment structure. (Update: still sucks) (Update: still have a random, undeletable Google calendar for this app I haven't used in years) (Update: problem persists on latest version; reposting - a yearslong bug should count against your star rating) ... Years! Still a problem. Persists on latest version, still. Still a problem!

    **update: The subscription fee isn't my problem. If you charge for new classes and features, fine. But, it's basically bait and switch on the app I already bought. I should be refunded my purchase or allowed to continue with original functionality. I did not update anything and this automatically has killed the app and is unusable without a subscription. I love this app! Here's what I like: the beginner studio takes you rough a variety of poses and gives you tips as to proper positioning and things to do to enhance the moves as well as what to watch for to avoid injury. I love that the moves graduate to intermediate and then to advanced, though I'm not to that level yet. I love that there is a bank of positions that you can wTch and try individually without doing a whole class. I like that there are classes of different length which encourages me to yoga even when I'm short on time. The music and calming voice is perfect for allowing me to calm my mind nd spirit. I like that there is a calendar that tracks my yoga days and classes performed. I have been doing the beginner classes for about 2 months now and I definitely feel better, more flexible and stronger. The classes download quickly and don't take up much space on my iPad. This app is phenomenal. I have never Been happier with an app purchase than I am with this.

    Be careful when signing up. I signed up for the 7-day free trial but got charged with US$69 right away when I canceled within those seven days. I've tried to reach out to them but not a word so far after many days. I reported the issue to Google but they're unable to help as well. These companies are just out to make a buck without any considerations on the users. This app seems like a scam to me.

  • Don’t love endless requests to buy subscription Nov 28, 2018

    By Annelieseteresa
    I am a long time user, and must say that this app has helped me to practice yoga at home with short lessons. I was really irritated when they went to a subscription model and that they locked me out of the classes that I had bought, but that has since been fixed. I am a pretty simple user and don’t really need all the new content that they have posted, so I have stayed away from subscription and just kept what is working for me. I must say that every time I click on new content that might be interesting, the app takes me directly to offering the subscription model - doesn’t tell me what the class is or what it is about. It just begs me to convert to a subscription. Since I am such a simple user, I might be interested in buying a series - maybe desk yoga, but don’t need 90% of the new content offered. I was going to recommend this app to a friend of mine, but didn’t feel comfortable because I didn’t want her to come back and tell me that she was hounded to buy a subscription. It was much better when you could just buy the app at one price like I did, or if you could buy what you needed and not have to pay for stuff that you won’t use via a subscription. Too bad - it was such a nice app at one point.

  • Stole from me-- but gave it back Aug 26, 2017

    By jadefly
    When Yoga Studio first moved to a monthly subscription model, it locked out all its previous buyers who had paid a flat fee expecting to have their purchase for keeps. After having happily used it for years, I was furious when the app automatically updated and locked me out, hence the review below. FWIW, Gaiam seems to listen to its customers: They eventually allowed previous buyers to access their purchase again via the Restore function. I am therefore changing my rating to a cautious 4/5 stars. While I am a fan of this product, to some degree I am still wary that Gaiam may try to pull the rug out from under me at some point. PREVIOUS REVIEW - 1/5 stars I paid $3.99 as a one-time purchase for this app back in January 2015 and have happily used it since. With this newest update, it has moved to a tiered subscription model that forces even existing users who have already paid for the app to select a monthly plan to continue using it. It's like charging a new monthly rental fee to someone who has already paid for a movie years ago from the iTunes store. I would like the developers to either help me downgrade my app to the previous version that I had already paid for - or to refund me my money, thank you.

  • Robbery May 8, 2018

    By ScoobsDoobs
    EDIT: See my review below which I initially gave one star. They responded! I love this app and find it to be the best yoga app I’ve used. I’m so glad thankful they’ve honored previous subscribers’ memberships. I had started using another app which I didn’t like as much. This one is great due to the interface being so simple and logical. You can find classes easily that fit your needs and the moves are varied within each routine. The other one I used had a lot of reputation and the explanations were t clear so I had to pause a lot. I also like the voice abs music options. Thanks!! SUGGESTION: it would be nice to have different duration options for each of the classes. For example, one of my go to options is beginner balance and there is only a 30 minute option. I have to choose other routines if I want 60 minutes. It would be nice to have 15, 30, 60 minutes for each routine. Honestly, I preferred the look of the previous app. Much more intuitive to have the categories all visible on each page and then have trees under each. I already paid $5 for this app and now you’re charging me for a subscription?? Unethical. I love this app but guess what - you lost my business.

  • Not... so disappointed May 9, 2019

    By BayAreaBoi
    I’ve used the product for years precisely because it didn’t use subscription as a business model. I was under the impression this company was better than the others who jumped on the greed wagon of subscription but I was wrong. I’ve lost trust for this company and no longer believe their message. For those of us who have had this product, the least they could’ve done is grandfathered us in for a complimentary year. I feel let down and ripped off. Sure they’ll continue to obtain customers but I won’t be one of them. It’s my understanding that even when you subscribe, if it is at the lower tier, you will see ads. If this is true, it confirms the motivation is greed and not a desire to make a great product. Surely, there was a better way. Ugh. UPDATE: Well, I’m eating humble pie. The app listens to its customers. For that, I’m changing my review from 1 (grumpy star) to 4 stars. Going with 4 stars as I haven’t actually tried a session yet but I am cautiously optimistic. The developer explained that they did indeed grandfather-in their previous customers. I am so so happy to have my yoga app back. Thank you.

    Paid for it years ago. Then one day it changed and was asked to pay more for more content?!The only small criticism I have is that some body alignments are not displayed at all. Some poses should be displayed from different angles or with more detailed narration on body alignment. After all doing it wrong can have adverse effect on the body, especially when someone is a beginner. Had to Google some details to make sure am doing it with the right form. Still the best I ever used.

  • Update destroyed trust in the brand Jun 1, 2018

    By folkfan1827
    First, like other reviewers have said, this used to be hands down the best app on my phone. I recommended it to literally anyone who would listen. I paid a flat fee for it up front, and used it on a regular basis. But then at some point they forced an update that locked me out of my account for several weeks. After loads of emails and updates, they finally have the app functioning again, but I have not been able to recover my custom classes. I’m really frustrated with this whole experience because they made a very similar transition on their meditation app but without all the nonsense and without blocking you from using it for any length of time. I understand asking us to pay for content, but you can’t change the terms of your purchase agreement without some kind of advance notice. Based on our original agreement, I owned the app as it previously existed on my phone. The original app experience made me think quite highly of Gaiam - a brand that really wasn’t on my radar before. But after this whole mess, I’m really disappointed and feel like they don’t work with integrity to spring this kind of change on a product that’s already been purchased without requiring opt-in agreement prior to any changes. I won’t be buying any other Gaiam products anytime soon.

  • Not the cleanest upgrade Apr 14, 2018

    By Steve Brown
    I’ve been using the app everyday for the last three months. It’s one of the better yoga apps for sure. The upgrade from version 3 wasn’t that clean. I had previously purchased the “full content upgrade” early on in version 1 and that would restore all the original yoga programs through version 3. With version 4, that purchase will not restore, so I was forced to sign up for the subscription model to access the app content. I also had all my yoga sessions tracked in the calendar for the last three months, which was nice to refer to to track my consistency. That data did not make it through the upgrade from version 3 to version 4, so now I have an empty calendar view. I’m assuming that data is now lost for good. It would be nice for the developer to honor my original upgrade purchase and unlock the content, but they may be forcing everyone to the subscription model; many developers are doing that now so they have a more sustainable revenue. The new version of the app seems to work well with the exception of a few rough edges in the fit and finish department – some of the images used in parts of the app don’t look optimized for large Retinal displays like the iPad Pro 12 or the iPhone X. Given the issues with the upgrade and restoring pervious purchases, I’m lowering my rating to 3 stars (from 5)

    When making your own routine, many poses won't tell it's time to change poses which is the whole point. Also would be nice if it announced the end of a self made routine instead of leaving you hanging. For $120 a year I expected those types of glitches to be worked out.

  • Incredible app - Poor Customer Value (Legacy Users) Apr 14, 2018

    By Rescuecat1217
    Let me start off by saying that this is the absolute best yoga app on the market! I've used these classes for years, almost religiously, and could not be happier with the smooth interface, plethora of focus-specific classes, and overall simplicity of the app. It is very user-friendly and guides you through each pose, indicating specifically how to mantain proper form. That being said, as many others are, I am extremely disappointed to see that your company does not see the value in their "legacy" or "long term" customers. This is pretty unethical and has truly destroyed this lovable, iconic app. I would've been more susceptible to donating if prompted to keep the app free; it was such a success. I purchased the app in one of the earliest versions and have used it ever since. I would love to see you guys show your appreciation to your original legacy customers by giving us full access to the app without paying for a subscription, or at the very least offer a permanent subscription discount. However I know that I, personally, will not change the company's decisions and reasons for doing so. Just sharing my thoughts. Thank you for an amazing app and I sincerely hope you can once again share your love for your long time customers.

  • Too bad they lied Jul 26, 2018

    By Yipiskipi
    Update: thank you again for your reply. Turns out the 42 sessions were removed from the studio by the next to last update. I did find them with your tip, so thanks for that. Perhaps steps can be taken to ensure future ‘updates’ do not remove existing classes from the original users. Took almost an hour to restore the 42 missing sessions. Have upgraded to 2 stars based on customer support. Update: thank you for your reply. I have NO 60 minute classes remaining in the studio and only one 30 minute class remains. I purchased this app in 9/13 and loved it for years! Then they started having problems with updates screwing up the app, and then went to subscription based services and didn’t grandfather in any of the original purchasers. They said they weren’t going to mess with any of the “old” classes, only that we wouldn’t get any of the new additions or subscription updates. They lied. Now every time they do an update, they remove a couple of the original classes from the studio. Today’s update removed the last of the 30 minute classes, previous updates removed all the 60 minute classes. I’m going to stop doing any updates to this app before I lose all of my originally purchased features.

    RED FLAG - MUST GIVE 30 DAYS NOTICE TO CANCEL SUBSCRIPTION! So they get $69 USD from you for a "free week subscription" whether you decide to keep the app or not! Other than a chart that shows poses, there is nothing free about this app... if you want to join a class, you must subscribe to a "free week". If you want to watch an old class, you must subscribe to a "free week". If you want to listen to a meditation, you must subscribe... so disappointing
