Yoga Your Own Way
Yoga in Your Living RoomVideo Games
Who knew that video games could be good for you? The makers of Super Mario Brothers have once again changed the video game with the introduction of the Wii Fit, a video game accessory designed to get you, well, fit. The Wii Fit is basically a balance board with a baton that tracks your movements on your own TV. The fitness program built into the device includes yoga, strength training, and balancing games to help you get in shape. Step on the board to determine your weight and how well you can balance. Then do the yoga poses as instructed and watch your on-screen avatar to check your form. It's as close to a personal trainer as you can get.
Even better, you and your entire family can do yoga in your own living room. Our Wii Fit blogger, Danielle, got her 2- and 3-year-old to do yoga right alongside her, just because they could watch themselves on TV!
