Samsung Brings Interactive Yoga its Smart TVs
Samsung India has partnered with health-tech startup, Wellnesys Technologies, to offer a unique and interactive yoga experience to consumers through its smart televisions. This collaboration marks a global first, combining the world’s first AI-enabled yoga mat from YogiFi with Samsung’s advanced TV technology.
Enhancing the Yoga Experience
By leveraging this exclusive partnership, Samsung aims to provide consumers with the opportunity to practice yoga in a tech-savvy manner. Users can access a wide range of yoga content on their Samsung smart TVs, including guided classes, personalized sessions, real-time feedback, and wellness monitoring through the YogiFi app.
Improving Posture and Alignment
The AI-enabled mat from YogiFi is equipped with sensors that detect incorrect postures during yoga practice. It then provides instant feedback to users, enabling them to make corrections and improve their alignment. This feature is particularly beneficial for individuals with sedentary lifestyles, as it helps them maintain correct posture while performing yoga exercises.
Rich Yoga Content
The YogiFi app offers a comprehensive collection of yoga programs, consisting of three levels – beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Each level includes a carefully curated set of yoga asanas to provide users with a holistic yoga experience.
As part of Samsung’s Make for India initiative, SRI-Delhi (Samsung R&D Institute India-Delhi) worked closely with YogiFi to make the app available on Samsung smart TVs.
The YogiFi app will be accessible on all 2023 Samsung smart TV models, such as Neo QLED 4K and 8K TVs, OLED TV, and Crystal 4K UHD TV range. Additionally, it will soon be made available on previous year’s TV models as well, according to the company’s announcement.
Speaking on the announcement, Dipesh Shah, Head of India Consumer Experience Team at Samsung, said:
At Samsung, we recognize the growing importance of holistic health and wellness in consumers’ lives. Our collaboration with YogiFi to enhance accessibility to yoga aligns with our vision of creating a serene connected world where devices and innovation empower personalized and intuitive multi-device experiences. By enabling consumers to practice yoga ‘the tech way’ on Samsung TVs in the comfort of their homes, they can now enjoy the advantages of instant feedback, fostering a deeper and more fulfilling yoga practice.
Commenting on the launch, Muralidhar Somisetty, Founder & CEO, Wellnesys India, said:
Our mission at YogiFi is to globally integrate AI-powered yoga into the daily lives of individuals, fostering physical and mental wellbeing. Through our partnership with Samsung, a pioneering force in the television industry, we aim to enhance the at-home yoga experience for every individual, amplifying the reach and impact of our mission to cultivate a healthy community with fortified immunity.
