App Store Description

This is not an instructional yoga app. This is a unique and one of a kind application in yoga as this app is specially designed for yoga students and teachers alike looking for inspiration in their practice and practice the correct pronunciation of the names of the poses in Sanskrit.

The Lite Version:

The lite version of the app contains ten postures in each category from the best-selling yoga coffee table book “Yoga from the Heart” by Yogananth Andiappan. Users can pay in app to purchase to unlock the full version to have access to the full four hundred postures, which are all classified for easy access and come with search and also can pay to unlock the audio names of all 400 poses.

Yoga is now more popular than ever, however, many people do not recognize it as an art form. Yogananth Andiappan, who started yoga from the age of two started learning yoga “from the heart”, is a living manifestation of this art form. He launched “Yoga from the Heart”, the world’s first yoga coffee table book which is a collection of four hundred beautifully taken extraordinary asanas (postures) chosen from a few thousand, many of which have never been photographed before.

This book is an inspiration to all Yoga lovers as well as Art lovers alike. The book has now been developed into an app to bring the same inspiration to a wider audience on the go. This is a must have app for anyone interested in yoga and Indian art. Witness the mind boggling yoga postures perfected effortlessly by a lifelong yogi, Yogananth Andiappan, son of Dr. Asana Andiappan who is a renowned yoga Guru in India.

All the names of the postures are translated into twelve languages, Sanskrit, English, Thai, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, French, Portuguese

All the four hundred postures are classified and can be searched by the following categories:-

1) Asanas Classified according to the Chakra (Energy Centres)

2) Asanas Classified according to the Dosha (Elements)

3) Asanas Classified according to the Pranas (Energies)

4) Level of Intensity of the postures from 10- 100

5) Position Search (Front bending, Inversion, Seated, Standing, Back Bending, Balancing, and Twisting)

6) Sanskrit and English names of asanas (postures) search.

7) Audio recording of the names of the asanas in Sanskrit.

Chakra Identification

The asanas are classified according to the chakra it stimulates while doing the posture, and the awareness point to be focused on while holding the postures. Focusing on a particular chakra before, during and after the posture can enhance the circulation of Prana to all the internal organs related to that chakra. It also helps to expose and develop the qualities of the related chakra within us.

Doshas Classification

The asanas are classified according to the dosha that they help balance. The balance of the doshas also helps balance the five elements in our body. They are responsible for coordinating and directing all the substances and structures of the body. Any disturbance or imbalance in their equilibrium can lead to several kinds of ailments and diseases.

Intensity Classification

All the asanas (postures) are classified and categorized for those who are practicing Hatha Yoga regularly (daily) for more than one year. Some postures are classified according to the level of difficulty in the steps to achieve the posture, while some postures are classified according to the level of flexibility which the body needs to develop to achieve the posture. Overall, the intensity of the posture is just reference guide.

"While Andiappan's practice may be unattainable for many readers, his attitude of delight and discovery in the body's potential is accessible to all. In Yoga from the Heart, Andiappan has created an album of inspiration for yogis of all practices and levels." - Yoga Journal – USA
