Hot Yoga

Your personal Hot Yoga teacher.

This Alexa Skill guides you through 26 postures that help sharpen your mind, build your balance, strengthen your body, and stay flexible. This routine assumes at least a basic level of familiarity with the 26 "hot postures" and should be used as an aide by people who are already comfortable enough with postures to practice at home without supervision. You must read and accept the Terms of Use before using this website or the Alexa Skill "Hot Yoga."

Are you a yoga teacher looking to contribute?

Upload a recording of your class and we'll feature it in the Alexa app. Amazon Echo users will see your contact info on their phones when they try your virtual class. Email omar.metwally@gmail.com to learn more about how to teach Hot Yoga online.


Alexa, Start Living Healthy!

 

Highland General Hospital in Oakland, California is the first hospital to use Amazon Echo to help us take care of patients using our homegrown Alexa Skill. While they wait to see a provider, our clinic patients can talk to Alexa and learn about preventive health interventions like cancer screening, controlling chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes, weight loss, and nutrition. 

Can a little bit of distilled knowledge, delivered interactively through Alexa, help make our patients healthier and more engaged? We think so. Knowledge is empowerment. 

We're constantly updating the app and continuing to put Alexa in our patients' hands. If you're interested in trying Living Healthy in your own practice or organization or need help using the Skill, please contact me. You must read and agree to the Terms of Use before using "Living Healthy."
