YOGAR is a Mixed Reality gamified yoga app for Hololens.
Many people failed to study yoga at home through watching Youtube videos and mobile apps, even with Xbox Kinect technology. All of this existing ways to self-learn yoga require users to focus on a screen instead of on body movement, which is against yoga’s philosophy – gaining inner strength.
YOGAR app is designed to let people study yoga in an augmented environment for the first time. It provides a true interaction in familiar space with a calming, spatial illusion.
When you feel like doing yoga at home, wear your Hololens and begin the session. You will see marks in space, hear audio instructions, and watch as relaxing videos guide you into the correct pose.
It will take a few years before the market for MR applications starts to take off. This tool can be a sneak peak of the future.
