In today’s world, yoga has a time problem. Even if you can find a regular yoga class in your area (and in your price range), you still have to make regular space in your schedule to drive there and attend the full class. For today’s busy young professionals, tired mothers, and active athletes, that’s asking a lot. Fortunately, there are solutions – and the solution everyone’s talking about is Glo.
Glo is, essentially, an exercise app. If you’ve looking into exercise apps before, you probably know something of the features they provide: You can find videos created by professional trainers, personalization and goal-setting, guides for specific movements, and more. Glo includes all of this…but it’s real selling point is just how much time it can save you compared to the traditional yoga class, just like other good exercise apps. Here are some specifics that show what we mean.
You Take Classes at Your Own Pace
Glo offers classes – a lot of classes, with more than 4,000 available classes offered on the app. Many of these divided into courses for specific goals (like learning a new type of yoga) and chapters of individual classes to help you get there. However, all of this content is on-demand, which means users aren’t forced into any specific time commitment. You can spend 10 minutes in the morning on yoga, or devote a couple hours every weekend to a long session to help recover from work.
When any type of setup works, yoga becomes much more accessible for the average person. Yes, some of the trainers do offer livestream sessions, but otherwise there’s really not much that’s possible to miss, no matter how much time you have to devote. You can use it as a meditation app to reduce stress, or test yourself with more difficult classes, all on your own time.
Platform Compatibility Means You Can Practice Yoga Anywhere
Another issue with yoga is the time it takes to find the right location to practice. Glo makes this particularly easy with compatible across phones and TVs, supporting platforms including Apple, Android, and Roku. If you have the time to set up in front your TV for an extended session, great. If you only have a few minutes on the go, you can pull out your phone and still access the same session. As long as you have a yoga mat for comfort, you start or resume your yoga anywhere you want.
You Can Quickly Find Exactly What Yoga You Want
Sometimes the most painstaking part of yoga is finding the classes you actually want to take in your area. If you have a particular type of yoga in mind, there’s no guarantee that you can find a class that’s suitably nearby and at a convenient time, which leads to even more compromises. One of the nice things about Glo is the sheer number of trainers and classes makes it easy to find exactly what you are looking for. Brush up on Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga, and a variety of other yoga styles that you may have been missing out on or wanting to try for a while. Even more specific options like prenatal yoga are easy to find without much effort at all.
Tracking Your Goals is Automatic
Glo is not a particularly demanding app, and you don’t have to spend lots of time entering in your workout information (as is the case with some other training apps). Instead, based on simple personalization options, Glo can set up basic goals for you to meet. There’s a two-week free trial available, so you can check out what these goals look like, but they start off slowly for beginners and are a great way to incorporate yoga into your life without too much data tracking.
