My Yoga Studio is the best app out of the whole fitness collection by Nickel Buddy. The biggest reason is that they have well written instructions for each exercise in the routines.
Each exercise is a yoga pose. You can use the routines that are built in, or you can design your own. I think it is good to know a little bit about yoga before attempting My Yoga Studio so that you don’t do any poses incorrectly. Sometimes exercises done incorrectly can cause injuries.
As the program warns, see a doctor before attempting any of the routines. My Yoga Studio is geared more towards adults.
The graphics are good. Just follow the prompts. The program will automatically move on to the next pose unless you pause it yourself. Use the menu options to pause the routine.
There are three routines to choose from with multiple poses within them. There is a picture that displays the pose, and instructions to describe the poses in detail.
The biggest complaint against all of the programs in Nickel Buddy’s Kindle fitness collection are that they have no audio signal. Yoga is such a calming, peaceful exercise program, that it is a little disruptive to have to keep checking the Kindle when you change poses. Audio is a good suggestion for upcoming updates to the device and to the program.
So, overall, aside from a few tweaks here and there, My Yoga Studio is a great program to use on the go. No extra equipment is required, but it might be helpful to have a yoga mat if you can’t find a comfortable surface to do your exercises on. It is inexpensive, easy to use, and fits in well with the other Kindle exercise programs available.
“Overall My Yoga Studio is very easy to use and it is easy to make your own routines. However…..it would be much better if it was an “Audible” app. A little music and and audible indication of what the next movement is, or, at the very least, a beep or tone to indicate the time to move to the next movement would be great! ”
“Tip for Kindle Apps and Amazon — Make these apps so we can download them not only to our Kindles, but also to our laptops using Kindle software. The bigger screen and ability to move laptop screen to whatever angle you need is important to get the most out of this app and other apps. Propping up the kindle can be annoying. ”
