    I've used head space and the yoga emporium's meditate 4 ever. They are great, but I'm always on the hunt for more as I build up my meditation practice and get ready to fly solo.

    Eeek! I feel super fancy. I've been reading that column for ages and never thought I'd have a question in it, lol.

    I seem to have lost my balance! In class, I cannot hold any of my balance poses - including my favorite tree. While I do sometimes rush it or try to muscle through it during class, I'm finding that things aren't any better during my home practice. How do I develope my balance "muscles"?

    Dbrown I'm so glad you asked this! I have very fine hair and tend to get lots of fly aways if I don't wear a headband. I'm going the scunci a try too.

    The Simply Being meditation app mentioned by Kelly is quite good: it's done by the Meditation Oasis people and I've used their guided meditation podcasts for years.  Their style really works for me and I have just about the entire archive downloaded to my phone.
     
    I also rate Insight Timer, because it incorporates both a plain timer for when you want to meditate in silence and also a library of streamable guided meditations, so you can do whatever strikes your fancy at a particular time.
     
    Other apps I like are Breathe and Buddhify, but honestly a lot of the time I just need a timer and some alone time

    I really like The Guided Meditation Site.com. They have a good variety. If you want a mantra meditation I really like Deva Premal. I also have an iPhone app called "Simply Being" that is really good.

    Headspace tends to let you sit in silence for a bit, breaking it up with some guidance and bringing you back to your breathe. They are training wheels for getting you prepped to go solo.
     
    Meditation 4ever is more talking the whole time, but they are short and generally focused on a specific intention.
     
    I'll try out the Deepak ones!
     
    And mantra is good, but I can only go about 5 minutes with mantra only right now. Still need to build up my meditation endurance.

    I think mirrors might be good for privates or a personal practice. But in a studio they feel like a distraction.
