Yoga Brain Training Game App

Age Recommendation 10+ years.
I love puzzles, quizzes, time management games and word fun, match this with a keen interest in psychology and I am the perfect candidate for brain training games. I have played many others but have found one with a big difference. Yoga Brain Training has a great selection of mental exercises and an easy level selector, but instead of having you race to the finish, this wonderful app invites you to think through your challenge and arrive at the finish in a relaxed and calm manner. That’s right, there’s no buzzer, no wrong, and no timer!
Pressure and stress free, you have the choice of 10 games stimulating areas of memory, arithmetic, patterns and shapes, and also some combinations – mixing word find and spatial awareness puzzles together. The backgrounds are serene and easy on the eye with music full of ambient sounds. It is a beautifully crafted app that exercises your very important brain, and does so gently, but will provide a good test of your capabilities. It was such a nice change to not be rushing to beat my personal time or score, we can get so wrapped up in measuring ourselves that maybe we forget the importance of the challenge itself. That’s what this game has shown me.
When you see leaves falling softly in the background and hear the sounds of a waterfall it is almost like a meditation with a twist. The free version is very playable with limited daily access and the paid packages of puzzles are very reasonable. Yoga Brain Training really is a game that is good for the mind and soul.
Requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPad.
