Yoga, a mixture of fitness and meditation, provides a wellness boon to millions around the world daily. And yet, without a studio and teacher, many at-home practitioners may find it difficult to grow in their routine.
From movement-guiding mirrors and mats to posture-correcting pants and breath-tracking wearables, modern technology and this ancient practice have merged to the benefit of yoga enthusiasts.
Here are our smart-tech yoga gadget picks.
YogiFi
One of the disadvantages of practicing yoga at home is that you miss the step-by-step instructions from a class leader. The YogiFi Smart Yoga Mat brings those instructions to your home studio—literally. After users pair their Smart Mat with the accompanying YogiFi phone or tablet app and selecting a video routine, the Smart Mat, which is outfitted with sensors, will guide the practitioners through the exercise, detecting limb and appendage placement and offering gentle correction for each movement so that users are in the ideal posture and balance throughout the routine. The YogiFi app will track users’ progression so they can see the improvement in their form over time, and Apple Watch users can pair with the system to track their vitals.
The YogiFI Smart Yoga Mat is available for $199.

For at-home yoga practitioners who need a more hands-on—or rather, pants-on—approach, there is the Nadi X. Featuring embedded sensors throughout, these standard-looking yoga pants provide a guided routine via a series of vibrations. After connecting their pair of Nadi X to their phone or tablet and selecting a routine in the accompanying app, the Nadi X will begin walking users through the routine. When a specific body part needs realignment, the Nadi X will offer gentle vibrations on that body part—ankles, knees, hips, etcetera—until it is moved into the proper position. When the vibration ends, optimal posture has been achieved and the routine continues.
Nadi X is available for $279.

A mirror is an important part of any yoga practice as it allows aspiring yogis to monitor their form and make adjustments as needed—but what if there were a yoga mirror that did more? Well, there is—the Studio Mirror from high-end athleisure-wear maker Lululemon. This smart mirror not only has all the standard functions you expect from a mirror (namely, reflection), but it also provides owners with video instruction, with a trainer guiding users through the movements on the face of the mirror, which they can track against their own movements, which are also reflected in the mirror. The Studio Mirror provides 10,000-plus classes on demand (beyond just yoga), as well as live classes added daily, featuring studios and instructors from around the world.
The lululemon Studio Mirror is available starting at $995.
