We Turned Our Great Room Into a Smart Yoga Studio

Yoga and meditation are such a comfort to me. I have been practicing for about 10 years, but lately with everything that’s going on in our world, I’ve become so much more invested in all things mindfulness-related. I partnered with Amazon to transform our great room into an automated yoga studio with the help of Amazon Alexa. Being able to use Alexa and the Amazon Smart Plug to control my devices and set up routines has made my life a little easier and leaves me with more “me time”. I just ask and Alexa can set off a routine like creating a Zen yoga environment or getting ready for bed. Whatever it is, setting up routines is simple and easy, and Alexa is always ready to help! In our yoga routine we set the Echo Show to play meditation music, our Phillips Hue lights to turn on, and our diffuser to turn on (make sure your diffuser has a mechanical on/off switch, that’s key!).

  1. When you mentioned essential oils, I was very very worried you were going to plug in some pyramid scheme/MLM products but thankfully, we didn't go down that route and I'm still subscribed lol

  2. darling professor colleague ( homeschool mom — my child is my student right now ) … really love to hear your vision for remaking school for all and good for all. i love homeschool so much but i very much want my child in the university … now when on location school may be over ( hard to believe ). as an electronic artist and teacher of electronic art since back in the day … i embrace new ways but firmly believe as social animals we need each other … lots of each other in person in real time in the moment … precious togetherness of humanity!!! as far as yoga i teach so much i love being guided because it gives me opportunity to let go of monkey mind!! i love and hold in high regards the couple — boho beautiful — they always aim to use mother nature as a costar. they are the best for guidance. i also love power thoughts meditation club for sound healing. big hugs. positive future.

  3. Dessi is just like my yougest and joins in with me, he’s decided he wants to own a flower shop and be a fitness instructor in the evenings (he’s 4 and wants to save for a tv for his room 😆)
    I do press ups and kiss his forehead. I’m no pro I’ve just started the Chloe ting challenge. I’m a hot mess 🥵 by the end of it!

  4. I have a cousin who is a Physical Therapist she shared her YouTube channel with me a few months ago Meditate with Alli. It’s been amazing yoga meditation breathing who knew? I love how soothing her voice is. It’s the only yoga I have tried but I love it.
