DEFINING THE PROBLEM STATEMENT
Users of online yoga programs want to improve their mental and physical well-being with consistent yoga practice, but find it challenging to maintain their motivation.
We started by conducting interviews with 16 yogis varied from beginner to advanced level instructors, while the beginner and intermediate (regular) yogis were found as the larger cohort who are looking to advance were likely to practice online.
Seeking yoga for
sustainable maintenance of body, behaviour and mental health.
Regular yogis have issues with motivation.
..Harder to be motivated online due to no one keeping yoga accountable..
..Sometimes real life classes can feel like an obligation..
..Sometimes the motivation is, well, I've paid for it, so I have to go. And that doesn't feel like real motivation..
Yogis need the following to enhance accountability.
motivated by financial commitment
motivated by physical attendance
motivated by setting goals and tracking process
Flexibility of classes
..If I'm really busy, that's what makes the app really good, cause then I can just fit it into my schedule..
..I can do it at any time, for however much time I have free..
..liked variety of class lengths for different context and fluctuating levels of motivation..
enjoy the time-flexibility of online practice.
have strictness of scheduled classes lost.
expect wide variety of class styles and lengths.
Choice of instructors
Yogis will want the ability to choose their instructor according to preferred personalities and styles.
..I want my instructor to be enthusiastic that's what keep me engaged..
..The verbal instructions almost need to be better. Because you can't watch it the whole time..
Frustrations - Online classes
Yogis felt uncertain with lack of correction. Mostly they would want their instructors to check if they did correctly and need micro correction instantly.
..I need someone to tell me how it would feel if I'm doing it right verbally, like really clearly..
..I need explanation of the movement and body placement as it is really important to me..
