App Description

Learn Yoga in 3D! A highly visual and interactive, everyday practice companion! Read on to see why this app will become as essential to your practice as your yoga mat!



Explore Yoga through an anatomical perspective. Yoga Anatomy takes the approach of understanding the inner workings of the human body in order to bring awareness to the deeper forces at play. We start by removing the skin and giving you a clear picture of the muscles involved. We use a color code to illustrate the different muscle actions.


• LENGTHENING refers to the muscles to be stretched (red).
• SHORTENING refers to the muscles to be contracted (blue).
• STABILIZING refers to the muscles which are neither lengthening nor shortening but are nonetheless engaged for stability.


YOGA ANATOMY IS 3D. Spin the body around to get a look from different angles! This is the most KILLER feature of Yoga Anatomy. How many times have you stared at a picture of a yoga pose and wondered what it looked like from a different viewing angle? With this app you can!!! Download it to believe it, it is like nothing else!

This is the TRUE meaning of INTERACTIVE.


INDICATIONS. On the iPad the experience is heightened: we give you indications overlaid on the body to guide you through achieving the pose safely and properly, illustrating some common pitfalls as well as variations on the pose. Tap an indication and you're taken to a deeper level of detail regarding that indication. The details take over the screen with beautiful animations that move, rotate and zoom into the body to best illustrate the muscles and movements involved in that particular indication. Each pose has about 5-7 indications, each indication with it's own deeper level of detail, so there's a LOT of information at your fingertips!

HOW DO I GET INTO THE POSE? In each pose we give a step by step description of how to get into the pose with safety and grace.



LIST. In addition to the muscles displayed on the body itself, we give you a list of the muscles which are lengthening, shortening or contracting. (The muscles list may also include some deep muscles which are not shown on the body.)

DEEP MUSCLES. We've dedicated a separate section in the app to address a few deep muscles which we feel are key in understanding some of the concepts of Yoga. For each of these muscles we include an explanation of it's role in the asanas, as well as a beautiful graphic illustrating the muscle and how it attaches to the skeletal structure.


KEY CONCEPTS. In addition to all the beautiful 3D models and animations, we've included a section titled "Key Concepts" which contains literature on an array of subjects. The key concepts are broken down into three sections: Getting Started, Common Indications, and Universal Indications.


SANSKRIT. We like to cater to a wide and varied audience, so we've included both the English names as well as the Sanskrit names of the poses. You can set your preferred language in the settings.
