All Yoga strikes a careful balance, giving beginners needed structure in order to understand the basics, while providing room to experiment for those who are comfortable with advanced poses.

That depth manifests itself in a few different ways. The most obvious is that while All Yoga showcases individual poses, listing step-by-step photos alongside written instructions for how to perform each pose, the meat of the app is in its programs.

Users can select from pre-set sequences, like the sun salutation, strengthening practice or stress management practice, and they’ll be treated to a carefully selected list of poses. This is particularly great for beginners who might not be sure what order to do their yoga poses in to get the most benefit from them.

Those with more familiarity with yoga poses can certainly use those programmed sequences, but should also find the “Routines” tab on the app a welcome site. In “Routines,” users can create their own practice sequences and save them for later use. It’s a great way for people to apply the knowledge they’ve gained through the structured practices on their own.

If you don’t have the money to spend taking an actual yoga class, All Yoga seems like a great alternative. It could use some voice narration for the poses, as some of them make it a bit difficult to look at your iPhone as you tie yourself in knots, but other than that, this is a superbly put-together app with appeal for all audiences.
