    "Yoga Studio is a bit expensive, but it is well-worth it for the large amount of videos and other content you receive for the price. The videos are geared a bit more towards beginners, but a fair amount do deal with more advanced techniques. There are some small bugs and various changes I would personally want to make, but overall, this app seems highly professional and is very helpful as an introduction to yoga."
