Flexible App Brings Yoga to New Audience

DUBLIN, November 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Yoga enthusiasts will be able to have a class in the comfort of their own home, thanks to a new app from the developers of iMuscle.

3D4Medical has launched the new iYoga Premium app, for the iPad and iPhone, to give yoga fans of all abilities a unique insight into the impact of 190 different poses on the body, from multiple angles.

It highlights which muscles are relevant to each pose, and shows them contracting and expanding while demonstrating the exercise.

Developers believe it will empower people to get the best results from every practice session and improve their confidence and technique.

3D4Medical CEO John Moore said: "iYoga allows you to see which muscles will be flexed and stretched by each pose, and choose from six preset exercise programmes, or create your own customised version.

"You can also adjust the hold times for each pose, depending on your level.

"It's very easy to use and there is nothing like it on the market, and we believe it will bring yoga to a new audience - those who have considered it in the past but were reluctant to go to a class."

3D4Medical Content Director Robert Cairnduff said: "The home user can now create custom yoga routines with a continuous virtual instructor taking them through every aspect of each pose."

It's available from the AppStore, and is priced at £1.99 for the iPad and £1.49 for the iPhone.

Additional poses for intermediate and advanced users can be added to the app through an in-app purchase. It can also be projected to an Apple TV.

The app follows on the heels of the iMuscle app, which has been downloaded more than a million times around the world.

3D4Medical specialises in educational apps for health and fitness enthusiasts, and for medical professionals.

Alongside iYoga and iMuscle, they have developed a range of apps focusing on individual organs and joints of the body, called the Body Systems and Body Regions series.
