Summary: I used to do yoga everyday, following a DVD, however I stopped for about 6 months because I became really busy at work. I always missed it, and now that I have this game I can squeeze it in anytime. This game is great for beginners, but I see alot of advanced moves too to keep anyone happy. I highly recommend this game, it's very user friendly.
Summary: This is good for a beginner yoga person who wants to learn the poses. This will help you if you take a yoga class as it explains the poses and how to hold them. If you are advanced, then you know how to do yoga and how to do a practice and this will not do much for you. It's also fun to do with your children and easy for them to follow.
Summary: Personally I love this program, and I use it just about every day, but I want to point out a few frustrating oversights. (1) The box might as well say "No Boys Allowed". There are no male avatars and many of the short routines are female-specific, like how to improve one's bustline. (2) Ironically (from a Western sense at least), despite being a very feminine game, the instructions freely throws around indelicate terms like "anus", "constipation", and "gas.
Summary: I'm a yoga instructor (also teach Pilates) and while this is no replacement for a live class or teacher, it is a really cute, fun game! I was very skeptical of how it was going to describe/demo the poses and practices, but I must say I am very pleased. The little avatar actually demonstrates the poses (as well as how to get in and out of them) quite safely, plus there is a lot of good detail.
Let's Yoga (DS): Yoga on the Nintendo DS - learn some new poses!
9 July 2009
Summary: This review is for the Nintendo DS information title, Let's Yoga, developed by Vanpool and published by Konami. The product is more of a guide to various yoga positions, so don't expect any game play. The product starts by offering a variety of yoga moves which you can view either individually, or as part of a longer programme. Each of these different poses is displayed by a model on the screen in great detail.
Summary: Before I got Let's Yoga for the NDS, my experience of practicing yoga was limited to doing a Yogalates DVD that I bought a few years ago and has since been gathering dust. My fiancé got me 'Let's Yoga' and also 'Quick Yoga Training' for the NDS. I tried them both at the same time and I immediately preferred 'Let's Yoga' because it has a voice that instructs you on how to manipulate your body into all the poses.
Pros: Both audio and visual guidance is excellent
Cons: The DS screen might be too small for some people
