Return to the Sun Salutation home screen and tap Do Workout to begin your yoga exercise session. Each new pose is introduced by a female voice. Rings representing pose duration and total workout length, fill along with your progress. The amount of burned calories is available in the bottom-left corner.
If you’re unsure about how to perform a pose, flick your wrist, open the app on your Apple Watch and press firmly on the screen to pause the workout. Grab the iPhone and tap the Info icon located in the bottom-right corner of the screen, to review the tips for the current position.
Return to your mattress and use Force Touch again, to resume the workout from your smartwatch.
