Introduction:

John Scott Yoga App is primarily based on John's highly acclaimed DVD / Video material.  The aim of this application is to provide the essential aspects of the DVD material whilst allowing the practitioner to either concentrate on John's instruction of the Vinyasa Count during practice playback or to all practitioners and teacher trainees quick access to posture information from John's teacher training manual.

The Practice

The Primary Series practice accurately follows the sequence laid out by John in the DVD.  Each Asana vinyasa is presented in an overlay sequence timed with the audio instruction from John.   Start audio playback by tapping the screen, move to the next or previous Asana by swiping across the screen, and fast forward or back by use of the audio scrubber.  Remember we're not expecting you to watch the playback during practice, concentrate on the audio instruction, but come back to the picture playback for further study or reference to the training notes on the back of selected images.

The Quiz

The main teaching focus of the App along with the sequence of Asanas is the Vinyasa Count.  John and Lucy have spent their practicing lives studying the intricacies of the count and the App is here to help you learn and understand it.  The quiz is for a bit of fun and we think this is a great way to try and learn and remember the sequence of Asana and counts.  Now integrated with Apple's Game Center you can share your scores and progress with other Game Center users across the world.

There's a score card and review section so you can see how you're doing and can find out the parts of the practice where you might want to spend a little more time.

Asana Sort Quiz

This quiz will test your ability to put the Asana postures in their correct order!  It’s one thing to know the Vinyasa Count for each posture but we’re also aware that knowing the correct order of Asanas, whether Janu Sirsasna B comes before or after Ardha Baddha Padma Paschimottanasana or the other way around. 

This Quiz presents the Asana to you in the same levels as the other quizzes starting with the Standing Sequence.  At each level more and more Asana are added until with Level 8 you’ll be asked to put all 48 Asana in the correct order.

To start ordering the Asana select ‘Sort’ and when you think things are in the correct order select ‘Check’.  Asanas in the correct position will be coloured as you can see below.  The Quiz will prompt you to start the next level when all Asanas are in their correct position

John's Charts

John is world renewed for his Asana Chart of the Primary Series.  Ask any practitioner who has studied the practice and there's a good chance they've used a version of John's charts throughout their training.  The new versions of the charts focus on the Asana, the Vinyasa Count, the drishti (focus), the breath (inhale / exhale) and the States of the Asana as well as covering the transitions between Asanas where these exist.  Beautifully drawn by John the Asana Glyphs are sure to become a stable part of every Ashtanga practitioner
