When doing our online classes, do you ever wonder if your pose looks ‘right’ or not? Because really, how are we supposed to know what our back leg or arm is doing when it’s out of sight in Warrior II or during core work? Unless you’re practicing in a space with large mirrors or have a hands-on teacher with you, alignment can be VERY difficult to figure out!
We at Do Yoga With Me know this difficulty all too well–we’ve experienced it first hand in our own practices and have heard from you about it too.
So, we’d like to try out a fun new solution with you: the Smart Mirror. It’s an exciting online tool that will help you visualize and correct your posture while you practice with us!
The Smart Mirror works by tracking and identifying your position in space as you practice, using nothing but your phone or computer’s camera. You’ll be able to see an enhanced image of your posture alongside your class so you can easily make adjustments to your alignment as you go. The Smart Mirror can even give you suggestions. Cool hey?
What’s more, this tool does not store any personal data so you can be assured your privacy is completely safeguarded. It’s simply a live, moment to moment visualization of your movements as you practice with your favorite teachers.
We want to hear from you about your experiences and whether or not you find the Smart Mirror of benefit to your practice. Once you’ve finished a class, a pop-up will appear with a link to a quick questionnaire. Take a minute to fill it out so we know whether you found it useful and if so, which classes work best.
If you are curious about how this might enhance and refine your yoga practice (or are simply interested in messing around with this new technology) try one of our 5 Smart Mirror classes below!
