That’s probably not a whole lot of days… But to be fair, it’s a new app for me. And I love it. It’s called Headspace. It’s a meditation program geared towards not only teaching you how to meditate, but also to help you maintain the habit. If you get through all their Basics and want more, you can subscribe to their packages, currently (USD) $12.99 monthly rate, $7.99/month annual rate, and $399.99 lifetime. This is definitely an interesting concept to subscribe to something like this (at least from my POV), and you can also subscribe through their app on iOS or Android thereby (possibly?) applying store (iTunes or Google Play) credit. I’m still getting through all their Basics series so will keep you posted if a subscription is in my future… A major draw for me is the integration with HealthKit and Apple Watch. What’s the point of doing stuff if it’s not documented?!
The other service I signed up for was yoga home study with YogaGlo. (They also have meditation classes which I’ve assigned myself.) This one is pretty straight forward, $18.99/month for unlimited yoga. That’s not too bad considering one class at a studio can run you about $20-$25. They have a pretty extensive collection of different classes geared towards all levels and practices, even including specialized yoga such as prenatal/postnatal. I actually did subscribe to them briefly back in 2011 or so, and they have since come a really long way. They have great app integration on all the major platforms, as opposed to other home study yoga classes which use a browser. (I personally found browsers really limited and prefer using apps. Apps hold your place and settings better than a browser.) They also offer sequence classes over a few weeks and calendar reminders for you to get your butt on your mat.
