Basically have to buy pro BUT WORTH IT
I paid for a year of pro for $54 after tax with their amazing discounts they offer to EVERYONE! So while you’ll need to buy it after about a month of consistent practice (you’ll go through all the free trainings I swear) it’s worth the money. Customer support is very quick to respond to emails and get you right back to your yoga routines. I have never had such an amazing experience with a workout app in my life. As a 22yo mom of a toddler I don’t have time to go to the gym, daily yoga has allowed me to do my workouts and stretches in my house with my daughter (who makes me work harder lol) whenever I have time. Their instructors go slowly and explain everything including where you should be feeling the burn if your muscles aren’t used to being worked and I promise there are muscles in your body you barely use and they will BURNNN! In the last 4 months of being a pro member I have lost 30lbs and all I do is eat junk, drink wine and do yoga! BUY THE PRO they also do monthly subs AND STAY CONSISTENT! Amazing app, amazing instructors, amazing routines and options to create your own schedule based on what you’re trying to achieve for your own body. I can go on and on about how great this is.
Pandemic Pricing 😱
I want to give this app at minimum 4.5 stars, because it’s apparent the developers have made this a stand out yoga app during a flux of country lockdown efforts to minimize to spread and risk of COVID-19. And while you are absolutely still able to gain access to many practices, it is not enough for me to want to pay $50 (at an 80% discount) for a year’s subscription; or, alternatively, there is a $20/month membership. Of course I want to support the instructors and developers! I have been furloughed from my job for... who even knows, along with 22+mil American’s alone filling for unemployment. I have $86 left to my name. So as much as I believe the app is absolutely worth the money—and if you have the extra cash and are looking for a solid yoga app, I believe it’s worth the money. However, with so many different ones to choose from at the moment being free because of the crisis we’re all in, I will only be using it sparingly, sadly.
If you are looking for current apps that offer free yoga because you, too, could use a GD break from life, I’ve found the Nike App’s yoga is killler. I mean, it feels like you’re dead after haha. Also free: Peloton, Glo, Zova, Fitbod, Gaia, the list goes on.
There is a 7 day free trial to test the Pro features of DailyYoga before you commit, so why not get 7 days of free fitness on a budget? It’s just too bad that it’s not enough time to really ~know and love~ the app to stay. 😔
It’s changed too much to be useful
I used to love this app, but they keep changing the format so I can never find what I’m looking for. On top of that, they keep adding new levels for more money. I’ve spent over a hundred dollars on this app since I got it and I can’t even do sun salutations with it because I’m not a “gold member”, a category they added after I paid and they shifted the content out to this new more expensive level. On top of that, in trying to open the app in a new phone, it glitches and charged me twice, but only apple support can return my money? I have two years of worthless “silver” content that only gets more useless by the day. I don’t recommend this app anymore.
I got the response. Having 2 years on one account sure seems like both went through on the same account. I reached out to the support way back about this problem and all blame was put on the App Store. I get it, you won’t help me access the same content I used to be able to get when I first bought a pro account, back when it was as simple as “free or pro”. You keep adding higher levels and making what people have already paid for the lower level as you invent higher levels. I stand by what I said, I don’t recommend it anymore, I have spent so much money on this app and can’t even open sun salutations on the app, cause now there’s a “gold level”. I can’t get my money back and will just let it expire in two years... it used to be a good app, it’s run horribly in my experience however.
I purchased many yoga apps and this is one is by far the best one!
I am new to yoga, i started using this app and instantly loved how detailed the sessions were but trying to do a work out off a little screen (my phone.), I found it difficult to do my Exercises. i have chrome cast but that didn’t work for this app sadly. This app does support Apple TV but i didn’t want to purchase one, I didn’t think it was worth buying one. Thinking I could find another app that supports chrome cast, i went on a search and found many apps downloaded a few and none supported chrome cast. Finally I found one I could connect to from my laptop to my tv. I was so excited I didn’t even think twice I signed up and paid for the year membership (big mistake) I went to go do my first session on this other app and it was so hard for me to catch up nothing was explained :( and I was so disappointed it wasn’t fun for me like the fun I have when working with this app (Daily Yoga). So I went to the store that night and purchased an Apple TV and i am so happy i did. I look forward to doing yoga everyday, i notice a big difference with my body, slowly becoming more flexible and legs are looking more toned 30 min sessions feel like 10 min sessions. This app is the best one for me. If you’re a beginner like me try this app, you won’t regret it! :)
I love you guys!

I started with this program 3 years ago, I think. I am still doing level 1/2, but that is what I love about it. I can work comfortably at what level I want, however long I want, and when I want. I am focusing on my flexibility because of an illness I have that has required the use of prednisone. I will probably always have to take it, but I am at just 2 mg a day. Who knows, my aim is 0 mugs a day.
After doing this program for only a year, my bone density scan even showed improvement, not “no change”. My rheumatologist was as proud as I was.
FYI- I am a 57 year old retired school teacher with polymyalgia rheumatica. Yes, it is a disease, and it comes and goes. It is autoimmune and loves to attack muscle tissue, like my hips, thighs, neck, shoulders, elbows, and knees. It is not arthritis, but is is so very painful and makes me move like a statue that has been frozen for hundreds of years that finally gets to moves. It is fine as long as I continue to move, but the moment I sit down to rest I have to go through it all over again.
No matter the circumstances, I am always happiest when doing the program. Again, I love you GUYS!
Very useful daily app for all levels
Daily Yoga has a wide variety of options, sessions, and programs available, most of them free. I chose to become a paying member, but am discovering that if I chose to continue practicing daily, I probably could have earned access to everything “premium” for free, anyway. The cost isn’t that bad, especially when compared to costs of gym or yoga studio memberships.
One of my favorite features is the meditation sessions. There are several types and several instructors. Whether I choose a session to increase flexibility or strengthen and tone, or just to increase my heart rate a little, DY provides a good structure for me.
My only complaint is that, having a little prior experience with different exercise and yoga programs, I sometimes find that DY does not provide enough warning about proper form to prevent injury, nor provide modifications for most poses. They DO warn to stop a pose and not push past the point of comfort, but I know that sometimes you don’t feel the injury until it happens, and then it’s too late.
I have recommended DY to several family members and friends.
I wasn’t able to access a rewind button. Perhaps this is part of the idea? That you just keep going? I also wanted to be able to do something that I could share with my friend who has never done yoga but I felt some of the spiritual fundamentals were missing and the focus was mostly physical, which is a preference for some, just not me personally. I did pay a good chunk for the app so that did feel a little disappointing that it didn’t offer the versatility I was looking for.
Overall, however, there are certainly more pros to this app than cons. I really enjoy the access to such a wide range of resources including music and especially motivation. I like that you can choose to do a quick run of it where if you were to go to a class you sometimes feel like you’re locked in to that time frame. This offered me the chance to be able to look at what was available and be more apt to do it because you think to yourself “it’s only 20 minutes” or “it’s only 30 minutes” and for someone like me who had really neglected my practice and feel somewhat really rusty now, it’s a great way for me to be forgiving to my body as I get back to my comfort in my practice.
I downloaded this app and the 7 minute workout app bc I wanted to regain my strength. I had two babies in two years and my muscle tone and strength were gone. That was in August and I no longer have the 7 minute workout app but use the daily yoga app multiple times a week. The programs have kept me accountable to get to my mat. I’m a plus size woman and have seen muscle tone return that I haven’t seen since my twenties. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to regain strength and muscles but need or prefer a low impact workout. It’s both challenging and fun. I would also recommend you start with the 10 day beginner program and if you like it, do another week program (I think I did an all over stretch one) and if you like those then I would purchase the gold pro. There’s tons of programs or individual classes that it gives you access to that are amazing. I just crossed the 100 days of yoga mark and I feel like yoga is going to stay with me for the rest of my life. I truly enjoy it and know it’s something I can stick with (unlike the many fads I’ve tried).
Clarity & Peace
The app works great, it doesn't have the most intuitive menu, but it's easy enough to figure out and there's actually a guide that tells you everything that I just noticed today. The free features are plentiful, but Pro (paid) options are nearly endless. Definitely worth paying for if your dedicated to your practice.
As for yoga itself, starting with a very basic (free) 10 day program at under 20 minutes a day did wonders to relieve sciatic issues - caused by inflammation * if you've got a slipped disc or something you really need to consult a chiropractor before doing anything. I wish I'd have been more open minded about it 20 years ago (even 5 or 10 years ago) I probably wouldn't have developed this issue to begin with.
Additionally, its allowed me to clear my mind, I may only exercise for half an hour or so, throw in 15 minutes of meditation, but it's effects are lasting throughout the day. This is a big deal for me as my mind never goes quiet.
It keeps me going everyday
I had used this app back when it was newer, stopped using it for a bunch of years and then decided to come back to it 2.5 years ago. I absolutely love it, the videos are easy to follow and I love that things are ranked Lvl 1 (beginner) to lvl 5 (advanced), so I never feel like I have to go above where I am. I’ve made a lot of progress with flexibility and strength over the years and within the last year I started to do more with meditation.
The community is really great, most people are very encouraging, there’s a couple Debbie Downers, but you’ll find that in any community. 99.9% of the people I encounter are great. I feel like I’m heard when I make suggestions or complaints which doesn’t always happen with apps, so it feels really great that I’m contributing to the future. I have a 2-3 Gold Pro (I buy during the sales) and I believe it’s completely worth it. Cheaper than a gym, but a much more pleasing environment.
