YogaYak.com Announces Interactive Online Yoga Instruction
June 22, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsActive interaction with instructors is an important part of learning and is often missing from online yoga and exercise/fitness sites. In yoga, proper alignment and breathing are integral to a successful, holistic practice. YogaYak.com, an online yoga studio, finds a way to bridge this gap: video interaction with the instructors for all members. The aim of this service is not to discourage yoga students from seeking live classes, but to enhance a consistent practice outside of the yoga studio.
This unique approach to online yoga instruction, the first of its kind, encourages members to record themselves in yoga postures, and send it to the in-house yoga instructor for comment, correction and advice; it also allows yogis to make an appointment for live video instruction on posture and breathing, or to discuss health concerns and yoga ‘prescriptions’ to enhance their home practice.
This approach also contributes to true online yoga community when members share their video questions on the website, making the information freely available to other yoga students online. Anyone with a web cam can benefit from this approach to yoga instruction, much like a yoga conference call, or having a private instructor available when you are – and at no extra cost beyond the monthly fee of $15.00US, it is the most convenient and economical way to have a complete home yoga practice.
Any physical practice is enhanced in terms of both performance, and safety, when the instructor is present, and yoga is certainly no exception. Many people find that home learning online is the best way to incorporate any kind of study, while balancing work, family and leisure time. Yogayak.com makes this easier and more complete by bringing a live instructor into the home, via the web and readily used technology – the simple web camera.
