Pick up your iPhone and begin a new journey to health, fitness, and a brand new lifestyle by tapping into the powerful yet easy-to-use Dive into Yoga app for iPhone, iPad and iPod. Christine Martitz, internationally acclaimed yoga expert and teacher, has incorporated her very successful yoga instructional DVD into the Dive into Yoga app so anyone can immediately harvest the benefits of yoga with 26 high-quality videos of Christine demonstrating the postures plus a breathing exercise.

Rather than using still shots, as most yoga apps do, Martitz uses the power of video to demonstrate in real time the postures that will elevate you to the next level of mind, body and spirit to being about wellness, fitness and contentment with self. In addition to fitness and well-being, Dive into Yoga will help the user control their cholesterol levels, reduce weight, normalize blood pressure, and improve cardiac performance.

Martitz, who began practicing yoga at age 11, has been a multi-lingual yoga instructor for more than 25 years. She was first encouraged to incorporate her expertise into an instructional DVD by the late Helen Gurley Brown, highly acclaimed and beloved author, publisher and editor.

Helen Gurley Brown took private yoga lessons in her home from Martitz once a week for 13 years. Gurley Brown benefited so much from that instruction that she not only urged Martitz to produce an instructional DVD, but also insisted on recording the introduction.

The DVD was produced by 3 time Emmy Winner David Seeger who works for all the major networks and is about to come out with his own show. David Seeger is the CEO of Today Video Inc., where he has been working with Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Bon Jovi and Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Cee Lo Green, Charlie Sheen and Jeremy Irons, to name a very few.

Following the success of the DVD, a friend read about apps in the Apple magazine and insisted that a yoga app was the next logical step for Martitz in spreading the benefits of yoga to far more people and to make it easy for anyone to do yoga each day in their home and while traveling. The Dive into Yoga app that resulted can now be found in the Apple Store for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

"The down to earth teaching style I use in the app will allow you to enhance your yoga practice," says Martitz, "and get the feeling of a yoga vacation or retreat in the comfort of your own home and become a healthier you in the process."

Martitz says the app is especially useful because it contains 26 poses in video format but has the ability to view just one clip so the user can study a particular pose. Playing all the clips will produce an amazing workout, and users can also customize their own yoga set by selecting clips and saving them to a set. The app is available in English and/or German language versions.

Martitz, who currently teaches in New York City, has taught yoga in English, German and Spanish throughout Europe, Asia, North and South America. This summer Christine is teaching private and group yoga classes in the Hamptons. In addition to having been the private yoga instructor for Helen Gurley Brown, Martitz provides yoga training to several other celebrities. She is also a scuba diver and has competed in three New York City Marathons. The Dive into Yoga app is being promoted by Scott Lorenz of Westwind iPhone App Publicity.

For a limited time, Dive into Yoga 1.2 is Free (Reg $3.99) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Health & Fitness category.
