Many (many, many) YogaGlo members have asked for a way to use YogaGlo on your iPads when you don’t have internet access — and we’ve got a new iOS6 iPad app just for you!
The app is free to download and with your YogaGlo membership you can practice yoga on the go without needing to be connected to the internet.
With this app you have the ability to view all of the classes that you have placed in your “queue” or have marked as a “favorite”. The app enables you to download up to 10 of these classes at any given time. When you next connect your iPad to the internet all of your track practice and history activity will be updated and visible in your YogaGlo account.
You’ve waited patiently to stream YogaGlo classes on Roku and now your wait is over! If you are a YogaGlo member, you can now access every YogaGlo class via Roku. To get started, you’ll want to add the YogaGlo Roku app.
The app can be found in the Channel Store under New and also under Fitness and Outdoors.
To get it setup:
Select the YogaGlo app
Select Add Channel
Go to Channel. The options are Teacher, Style, Level, Duration, My Classes, Beginner Center.
Select a class you would like to take and, there you have it, your YogaGlo class will play on Roku!
If your Roku device is not linked with YogaGlo, go to yogaglo.com/roku and enter your activation code.
You can also access the Roku device link area in My Account and select Link My Device under the Roku Device area:
Now let’s take some YogaGlo classes!
UPDATE 11/7/12: Though we state above that you must be a YogaGlo member to access these classes on Roku, several commenters requested that we clarify further. If you do not have a YogaGlo membership, you must sign up for an account with us at $18/month before you can access these classes on Roku. The Roku access is only for those who already have an account with YogaGlo. Hope that clarifies. If not, please let us know.
We are thrilled to share some new site features that many of you have asked for over the past several months. When you login to YogaGlo today, the site will look a bit different so please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the changes below so you can get Glo-ing right away.
Dashboard - We’ve enhanced your YogaGlo Member Dashboard to help you more easily find, manage, schedule and take yoga classes you love. This brief tutorial video will step you through the new layout so you can start to use all the new features we built just for you. View the Dashboard tutorial now.
Queue -You now have the ability to add YogaGlo classes to a Queue for watching later. You can schedule those classes to take during the Day or Night and get email reminders about your planned classes to more easily keep your intention to practice yoga regularly. This brief video tutorial will give you the highlights of how this new feature works. View the Queue tutorial now.
Though we may all subscribe to the idea that what challenges us in our yoga practice makes us stronger, we know that changes to a site you use every day can be less fun. All of these video tutorials are available to watch here at any time. We also have a detailed support site to answer many of your questions. You can also let us know what you think about the new features by leaving us feedback so we can continually improve and add features you love.
Notice something different about the YogaGlo site today? In addition to a pretty new background and a few subtle changes, we’ve launched an exciting new feature. You’ve asked for an easier way to find great yoga classes and…your wait is over! Our newly designed search feature has just launched.
Instead of selecting “Specific Uses” from our top navigation, you can now go directly to the Search page to filter over 1,500 YogaGlo classes by a variety of criteria so you can hone in on a perfect class depending on what you need at any moment in time. Want to skip ahead and get straight to searching? Go, search, enjoy!
Want more information about this new search feature and its close cousin the re-vamped Filter feature? Here’s how they work:
As with every part of YogaGlo, new features are a work in progress and we’re only as amazing as all of you in the YogaGlo community. If find something that seems funky or isn’t working for you, please let us know. If you have more questions about how it works, let us know. If you have ideas about how it could be even more efficient for you, let us know that too. You can even let us know if you like it.
Now…get out there and find a YogaGlo class you love and take it today. Enjoy!
We’ve just launched two new Specific Use categories on the YogaGlo site that we’re very excited to share with you:
Continuous Flow – If you prefer your yoga in a non-stop workout format where you build heat, hold poses briefly and move to the next, this new category is for you. Every class listed on this page (and all new ones added) follow a continuous flow format to be sure that if you want a full-on yoga workout in 60 minutes, you’ll get it. We’ll be adding various levels and various teachers to this category over time, so get your yoga workout on and let us know what you think.
Cross-Training – Are you a runner? Cyclist? Snowboarder? Surfer? A combination of all these and more? Yoga works brilliantly as pre-event stretching or post-event recovery and we’ve curated a great set of classes that are designed to help keep you in top form for your favorite sport and to help prevent injuries along the way. As you enjoy these classes, don’t be shy about letting us know what sport you love most so we be sure to add classes that are targeted at your needs.
Enjoy these two new yoga categories as you workout, run, spin and swim your way to feeling good!
One of the most frequently asked tech questions we receive at YogaGlo is how to connect your computer to your TV so you can get the true, in-class experience of YogaGlo – which is how each class is filmed. Technology is changing rapidly and very soon we’ll be able to share news about several different platforms and how to have a more integrated experience than our tech help currently offers, but we did want to share one very cool, just-out new feature for Apple-lovers.
If you have invested in the latest iPad or an iPhone 4 and just happen to have Apple TV as well, the new AirPlay feature released by Apple will help you beam your YogaGlo experience from your iPad/iPhone to your tv in…seconds!
Here’s a very brief, on-the-fly tutorial of how this works so you can see just how easy it is…
