Yoga, But More Flexible
Human beings are extremely adaptable and social creatures. While social distancing measures mean we cannot connect with each other physically, we can find other ways to connect socially and achieve that all-important physical activity. Finding time for deep relaxation and gentle stretches can reduce stress and improve your sleep quality. That’s where Yogaia and Garmin come in – with a flexible, remote yoga programme that is helping people work out, relax and socialise in the digital space.
A Private Yoga Teacher at Home
Yogaia is a first-of-its-kind, online mind and body wellness platform, founded in 2013 by Mikko Petäjä. Intended to make healthy lifestyle changes accessible and sustainable for millions of people around the world, it is now helping to keep people motivated and connected during isolation. With a more extensive schedule, more classes designed specifically for people working remotely, longer classes for yoga addicts and more live streaming classes across time zones, Yogaia is ensuring that more and more members are able to access its services.
Personalised, Interactive Yoga and More
Using the stats collected from a Garmin wearable, members can make better-informed choices about which Yogaia class is best for them and when. With the Garmin Venu and vívoactive 4 smartwatches, you can:
- Monitor heart rate during activity and receive alerts if it is higher or lower than expected.
- Track and control your stress levels with prompts and breathing exercises.
- Discover Body Battery energy monitoring that estimates your energy levels and helps you decide the best times for activity and for rest.
- Monitor breathing throughout the day, while asleep, and during breathwork and yoga activities.
- See how well you’re sleeping, and whether that extra Yogaia class helped.
With yoga sessions varying in length, intensity and difficulty, Yogaia delivers a personalised exercise plan suitable for anyone, which can performed anywhere (kitchen, living room, back garden). Members can interact with attentive teachers live, achieving both exercise and a unique social experience online. And it’s not just yoga – you can also find sessions for meditation, HIIT, Pilates, family mindful movement and more to suit your mood and motivation levels.
Small Changes Make a Big Difference
Both physical activity and relaxation help to boost your immune system and lift your mood. By making changes to its programme, Yogaia is hoping to help more people make the small changes they need to improve their health and well-being. Whether it’s for yourself or your whole family, Yogaia and Garmin are providing the tools and support you need to work out, chill out and max out your time at home.
