FREE to download.
Paid subscriptions available, but you’re not missing out too much if you opt out of paying. A reviewer recently said: “ From the language used in the narration, the soothing yet energizing voice, the musical selections (and option for no music) the quality of the images.. I’m just really happy with Down Dog. Evidently there are in app purchases, but I probably wouldn’t have realized that if it wasn’t indicated on the app description. It’s not in-your-face at all – I’m going to have to go back and search for them. And I will, because the quality of the free product is so amazing“. Read more.
