Artificial intelligence (AI) is here; firmly and permanently, subtly shaping our experiences even when we don’t realise it. From personalised recommendations on your Instagram feed to the virtual assistants answering your questions, AI is quietly enhancing our world.

And the world of yoga is no exception- this ancient practice offers many opportunities for AI to change the way we practise, offering personalised guidance, adaptive routines, and even virtual instructors. Here are 9 ways you can harness the power of AI to create a truly transformative experience for your yoga app users:

 

AI-Powered Personalised Yoga Routines for Increased Activation

Activate more users and keep them engaged by:

  • Generating personalised yoga routines: Adapt routines to each user’s skill level, goals, and preferences, promoting a sense of customisation and relevance.
  • Recommending yoga sequences based on user data: Utilise AI algorithms to analyse user activity and suggest appropriate yoga practices for optimal progress.
  • Integrating fitness tracker data: Leverage data from connected devices to provide personalised recommendations and insights, enhancing user engagement.

AI-Driven Pose Detection and Yoga Pose Correction for Improved Conversion

Convert more users into paying subscribers by:

  • Providing real-time feedback on pose accuracy: Utilise AI-powered pose detection to ensure users perform poses correctly, minimising risk of injury and promoting confidence.
  • Offering personalised guidance and adjustments: AI can suggest alternative poses or modifications based on user limitations, leading to a more effective and enjoyable practice.
  • Creating a gamified experience: Implement AI-powered challenges and rewards based on pose accuracy and practice duration, boosting engagement and motivation.
