A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
This game reinforces the need to exercise as part of healthy living.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this application uses an animated female model to demonstrate various yoga poses for players to try at home. You can pause the exercise at any time and rotate the model 360-degrees to examine her technique more closely. While it's quite thorough, kids could also benefit from attending actual Yoga classes to get interactive feedback from a real instructor, who can observe and correct improper techniques. Unlike other fitness games, this one does not ask players to input their height or weight.
Is It Any Good?
Let's Yoga! offers more than 80 different poses, an eclectic soundtrack of Indian music, and heaps of helpful advice and instruction -- a significant portion of which is provided in voice-over as well as text. One of the most helpful features is the ability to pause an exercise at any time and use the DS stylus to rotate the model 360 degrees. Nothing will ever beat going to a real yoga class, of course, but Let's Yoga! is a good substitute to take out on the road or to provide a solid introduction to the world of yoga.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
