"Core Yoga" is our exercise app that focuses on developing core strength and flexibility. It is the only app that times movements to breathing exercises. Very simple and intuitive to use, this app will easily enable you to integrate the exercises into your daily routine for optimum health and flexibility. In Yoga, a person is considered to be as young as his or her spine; the greater the flexibility and strength of the spine, the healthier the individual. Hence, our exercise app focuses primarily on increasing the strength and flexibility of the spine.
Focusing on mindful exercise, this app is not an encyclopedia of yoga poses, but rather a structured series of exercises designed to improve your core muscles and flexibility. The series of exercises is timed to musical cues that enforce the proper timing and synchronizes your movements with your breathing. The virtual yoga instructor provides visual cues, eliminating the need for annoying voice overs so your exercise can be a truly mindful experience.
Breathing and Asanas - together
Breathing is an essential component of yoga and is often neglected. The motion of the exercises are timed to the rate of your breathing. During the exercises you will inhale during motions which expand the chest, and exhale during motions which contract the chest. The visual and audio cues will easily guide you during the exercise.
The benefits of yoga include:
• A decrease in blood pressure through better circulation • Better circulation enhances the oxygen flow to organs and the brain • Gastrointestinal functions improve through massaging and detoxifying positions • A balanced and more efficient metabolism
Deep breathing has always been a core component of yoga. The app times yoga postures with breathing exercises for optimum form and duration - so you get the benefits of deep breathing and asanas at the same time! Core Yoga builds on Saagara's flagship app "Universal Breathing: Pranayama", an application that guides you to slower, deeper breathing. If you want to build up your stamina and maximize effective breathing, we recommend that you check out our app Pranayama. It will guide you to more effective breathing and will help you become fitter and less stressed!
