Eyes Free Yoga

User receiving eyes free feedback about an incorrect Warrior 2 poseWe have designed and developed Eyes-Free Yoga on the Microsoft Kinect. It emulates a yoga instructor, teaches six yoga poses, and provides custom auditory-only feedback. After a player is guided into the pose by the game, they receive the custom feedback to improve their pose. We collaborated with ten yoga instructors through the design, development, and evaluation. We ran a study with 16 people who are blind or low vision. This work was published at ASSETS 2013.
