Tomorrow International Yoga Day (June 21), but you can start practicing yoga without going to online classes or in person. All you need is an Amazon Alexa-enabled device somewhere in your home to start your yoga journey. Here’s how to get started.
You may not have a pastor but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a celebrity like your visible pastor. Amazon Alexa has a feature where you can take classes from actor, producer and bodybuilder Shilpa Shetty. All you have to do is say, “Alexa, open Shilpa Shetty yoga”, and you will start studying Bollywood celebrity classes.
Like many other activities, yoga is practiced quite well in a quiet, relaxed setting, but it is easier said than done. But Alexa can help in some way to shut down the noise in your home so you can focus on your yoga asanas. Just say, “Alexa, turn on Natural Sounds” or “Alexa, play sea / rain / forest sounds” and the Alexa enabled device will play cool and cool sounds.
You can make your yoga work more interesting by playing the same music as well. Set the setting for your next yoga session by saying, “Alexa play yoga music” or “Alexa, play meditation music,” and your device will start playing appropriate music for yoga exercises.
Sometimes, it becomes difficult to track your yoga activity and that is what Alexa’s Headspace is capable of. With it, you can achieve new guided daily meditation and sleep exercises that can help you stay calm and relaxed. Ask “Alexa, open Headspace,” and try new state-of-the-art solutions every day.
