I don't know the w w fitness app but generally things involving running and jumping are regarded as high impact whereas things like swimming and certainly yoga are low impact i.e. fairly gentle on the joints.
Yes, that makes sense slipstick. With the 'impact' bit relating to joints as opposed to the impact it has on your physical and mental health.
There's a difference between "impact" and "intensity" when it comes to exercise. The impact tends to relate to the physicality of what you are doing whereas intensity is more related to the cardio aspects. With something like Yoga, it's perfectly possible to have a low-impact high-intensity workout if all those gentle stretches leave you beetroot-faced and gasping for breath
