Healthcare-Brooke Schuler's Introduction to Yoga!
Learning yoga is always tricky, especially when you want to learn it at home. Like almost any other practice, there are more than enough YouTube tutorials and yoga applications that you can use, but, as you may agree, the benefits of a physical class are incomparable to those of a tutorial; with a teacher to guide you and make sure you're properly positioned and a classroom environment where there’s no need of peeking at a screen, learning is trouble-free. The reason why health concerned individuals can’t use a physical class is that many people aren't able to attend or afford such classes, so they make do with the yoga-at-home alternatives. Now, yoga apps are beginning to incorporate XR technology to help people get more out of their at-home practice.
Brooke Schuler's Introduction to Yoga in Augmented Reality kit is a marvelous example of employing AR for health and sprots. A part from a fully illustrated book, you get an AR-enabled app with a virtual instructor projected into your room to demonstrate poses. Not only does this make the tutorial more interactive and interesting, it makes it much easier to understand and emulate each position. There's even been some scientific study on incorporating AR into yoga, which found that the application of AR can help participants enhance their perception of the yoga experience.
During the Covid-19 pandemic-induced lockdowns, families and children were cooped up at home for several months and faced with inactivity issues. Thanks to the advancement of technologies, offices and schools were able to adapt to the new reality faster with virtual office spaces and classes via mobile and computer applications. Therefore, many companies paid attention to work and exercise at home. Some having realized the gravity of their health conditions started taking up virtual classes for exercises and yoga via mobile apps, but finding an app with holistic and precise training has always been difficult. This is when an interesting innovation like Brooke Schuler's Introduction to Yoga in Augmented Reality kit comes in handy.
Taking this to the next level, we may see yoga classes go virtual, just like the communal guided meditation apps which have been created abundantly. Here, you would join a yoga class virtually, potentially with people from all over the world, and, thanks to your virtual avatar, the instructor would be able to see how you're doing and offer feedback to improve your downward dog.
