Technology has become an integral part of our lives. It has been said that the job of teachers and psycologists/psycho-therapists has the minimal chance of being replaced with technology. But, as the times are progressing, Artificial intelligence is reaching all the fields. Yoga being, no exception.
Yoga-centered apps are the popular form of technology being used. As they all offer guidance from experts with pictures or videos to support yoga practice. And some apps track your progress and give you feedback. 🙂
For yoga enthusiasts, there have been several products introduced which intend to enhance their practice through technology. Here are a few technological advances that are making waves within the yogi community.
Nadi X is a line of activated yoga apparel that listens and responds to your body, guiding you through your yoga flow. These pants are designed with embedded technology.
Using vibrational feedback, the pants encourage you with gentle pulses around the hips, knees & ankles. Connect to the Nadi X mobile app and your pants will do the work.
This yoga technology aims at helping people track, improve and perfect their yoga practice. SmartMat is a responsive yoga mat with motion-sensing technology that gives you real-time feedback on your alignment and balance.
Promoted as “the world’s first intelligent yoga mat,” SmartMat is built with responsive sensors that link to your Smartphone or Tablet and guides your practice through a series of audio and visual indicators. The flexibility of SmartMat allows you to have a more customized yoga tutorial.
There are a lot of promising technological advancements coming your way soon. Take some time to check them out to see if they support your practice. While these developments may not tend toward the traditional ways of a yogic lifestyle, technology may soon make these principles accessible to a wider audience!!
