In our world of today, Yoga and meditation are excellent for reducing stress and helping us get relaxed. Yoga is also excellent for building core body strength and physical flexibility. Nevertheless, the problem with meditating and doing yoga is finding the time and motivation to get started. For some people, it’s also having the confidence to give it a go, especially going to a class where you might think that people will be judgmental or just better than you.
However, you don’t have to worry anymore, Join me in this article as I unveil the five technologies that you can use to practice yoga anywhere.
The 5 technologies that will help you get the best out of doing yoga and meditation
Yogaia – Stream yoga classes at home
Armed with just a laptop or tablet and some decent Wi-Fi, you can now stream live yoga and meditation classes from home. The benefit of this service which is available for a monthly fee (that is cheaper than a lot of single yoga classes) is that you get the best of both worlds. You get the combined convenience of following a video at home with the ability to have a teacher watch your technique when participating.
Oils diffuser – Invest in this for your Yoga and meditation practice
Yoga and meditation are all about breathing, so why not make sure the air you breathe is also helping to enhance your mental and physical well-being. Essential oils help trigger the receptors in your brain responsible for controlling emotions. One of the most effective ways of using them is in an electronic diffuser. It uses innovative ultrasound technology to emit the oils in a powerful mist with sweet fragrance for better yoga or meditation practice.
Amazon Alexa – Practice Yoga and meditation with this Smart Assistant
There are many devices available now that Amazon has launched featuring Alexa. This device programmed to hear and respond to your commands using its voice recognition code called ‘’Alexa’’. Alexa has thousands of different useful skills, activated just with a voice command. There is a whole section of skills in the Health & Fitness category, one of the “Stop, Breath, Think” skill. You can say “Alexa, open Stop, Breath, Think” and one of the various meditation routines will activate. The calm and relaxing voice will help you clear your busy mind alone in a silent room.
Headspace app – for yoga and meditation
This app is available for smartphones and offers a multitude of ways to practice meditation and mindfulness at home. This app has a free 10-day mindfulness programme called “Take 10”. After that, there’s a subscription fee to get access to lots of guided and unguided practices. Headspace also shares the love by donating a free subscription to someone in need for every person who pays.
The problem with traditional indoor lighting has always been how harsh it is. Incandescent bulbs trick our bodies into thinking it’s time to get alert and active. Great when you’re trying to concentrate on work, not so good if you’re trying to chill out. Now with smart lights, you can control your lighting when you’re trying to do yoga or meditate. You can have them automated to change at a certain time or even control them with smart assistants like the Amazon Alexa or Google Home or remote.
I hope using these 5 technologies will help you to get the best out of yoga and meditation at home.
