What Makes The Glo Meditation App Unique?
In addition to the thousands of classes offered, Glo will send you recommendations for classes and those recommendations will be tailored to what the service believes you will like based on past courses and classes you have already taken. There are even programs that are specifically designed for women to support things like fertility, navigating menopause, and there are prenatal and postnatal programs as well. Finding a class that will support your specific needs at any given moment is exceptionally easy to do, no matter how much or how little time you may have.
Glo knows that 2,000 courses in yoga, Pilates, meditation and more can be a little bit intimidating to some people. For this reason, Glo allows you to organize all of the classes you have taken or wish to take by the specific theme of each individual class. Want to take a class in an area you don’t have internet service? No problem! Glo gives you the power to download classes so you can watch them offline! Every class and all programs will be saved to your personal library and can be organized and categorized in a way that makes the most sense to you.
