Introducing Offline Video Access for iOS users!

We are phenomenally excited to announce that Cody members can now use our iOS app to download training videos and watch with no Internet connection required!

Offline video access has always been our most-requested feature and we have been working hard to make it a reality for you. With offline videos, your videos become truly mobile. Anywhere in the world you take your iPhone or iPad becomes a place to practice.

For our worldly travelers, you can now bring your practice to your destination, no matter how remote. For those with spotty internet or data plans, you can now download your training once and play your videos as many times as you want with no future buffering needed.

We designed this video download feature to be kind to your mobile devices: You can download an entire plan, or just one workout, with a single tap. Download sizes are indicated to help manage space on your device, and downloading defaults to Wi-Fi networks (but you also have the option to download using mobile data too!). Additionally, we took care to compress our videos so that a 30-minute video is typically only 100MB.

Look for the “Downloads” button in your “Training” tab where you can manage your offline videos all in one place.  Pause, delete, or resume in-progress downloads at your convenience.

Last but not least: Android users don’t fret! We will be rolling out offline video access for Android devices in the next few weeks as well.

Go ahead and update the app on your iPhone or iPad, and give the downloading feature a whirl!

socially acceptable behaviors yoga

For those uninitiated to the basic yoga class, not knowing what is or isn’t socially acceptable can be a source of unnecessary stress. It’s perfectly normal to be self-conscious in new environments, but don’t let your fear of social awkwardness keep you out of the yoga studio! To quell possible anxieties, here are some common social Dos & Don’ts for your first few yoga classes.

diversity of yoga

Let’s be real for a moment: Yoga in westernized countries has an image problem. It has a bikini-wearing, lemon-water-cleansing, size-zero, under-butt and side-boob revealing image problem. Type in “yoga” to any search engine, and your screen will be awash in images of lithe, model-esque twenty-somethings.

While there is nothing wrong with pictures of pretty yoginis, the vast under-representation of all other types of yoga practitioners (photogenic or not) in the media can make some feel like yoga is not for “people like me”.

At Cody we believe representation matters, which is why we put together this post to showcase the beautiful diversity of yoga.

This article was originally published on Paleo Magazine, and has been republished here with permission.

The reasons for going Paleo are multitudinous, running the gamut from disease elimination to exercise optimization and everything in between. With its inflammation crushing power, Paleo is able to handle these tasks with ease, which is why it can be easy to forget that Paleo is the perfect solution to the everyday problem of weight loss.

The sad fact is that two out of three adults in the U.S. are obese or overweight, a situation that’s due in no small part to the calorie-rich and nutrient-poor Standard American Diet (SAD). We live in a world where pizza is classified as a vegetable, canola oil is considered “heart healthy” and everything is washed down with soda, so simply going Paleo and ditching all that junk can often be enough to get to a healthy weight.

Sometimes you need a little more help, however, and that’s where we come in. By joining forces with top Paleo experts like Mark Sisson, Loren Cordain, Robb Wolf and Jason Seib, Paleo Magazine is providing you with the ultimate guide to losing weight with Paleo.   Continue Reading…
