Can Artificial Intelligence Improve Your Yoga Practice?

This year’s International Day of Yoga offers yogis a unique opportunity to enhance their practice through traditional yoga instruction and cutting-edge AI technology.

International Day of Yoga is a global event hosted annually to raise awareness about the numerous benefits of yoga. Last year’s event hosted at Wanderers Stadium by the Consulate General of India, Johannesburg was an unprecedented success that attracted over 7,500 yogis.

This year’s event aims to attract even more yogis by offering more personalised insights backed by scientific data. In addition, participants can enjoy a fun day of yoga that includes workshops, demonstrations, entertainment, music, and food. It is an event designed to appeal to the whole family.

A highlight at this year’s International Day of yoga is the Yoga Awareness Assessment offered by phylaxis.ai which combines traditional yogic wisdom with modern data science to provide participants with personalized insights into their yoga practice and overall health. Phylaxis.ai offers participants a deeper understanding of yoga’s benefits and preventative healthcare solutions to better understand their body’s needs and tailor their yoga practice accordingly.
