The International Day of Yoga and World Music Day will fall on the same day, i.e. June 21. On the occasion of celebrating these moments together, here are some options you can explore with Amazon Alexa from the comfort of your homes.
The Art of Living skill: If you want to meditate and do not know how to begin, access the Art of Living Alexa skill. Art of Living offers guided meditations, calming ‘bhajans’, talks and quotes in the voice of Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Just ask, “Alexa, help me meditate” and get started with the journey to master your mind and body.
Sadhguru skill: With the Sadhguru Alexa skill, you can listen to inspiring talks from Sadhguru on topics like health, mind, success, relationships, meditation, yoga, devotion, and spiritual process. Ask “Alexa, open Sadhguru” and choose from a wide variety of options.
Music for the meditation routine: Finding appropriate music for your daily meditation and yoga might seem like a task. Alexa can now help you find the tune you need for your routine. All you have to do is ask “Alexa, play yoga music” or “Alexa, play meditation music”.
Nature sounds: Natural sounds are said to relax you. This lowers your stress level and helps you become more relaxed for sleep. Alexa offers sounds of nature that can calm your environment. All you have to do is ask Alexa to play sounds like rain, thunder, ocean or wind by just asking “Alexa, open Nature Sounds” or “Alexa, play ocean sounds”
Music for your moods: You can listen to your favourite music from artists around the world with the help of Alexa. You can ask Amazon’s AI voice assistant things like, “Alexa, play Shahrukh Khan songs from Spotify” or “Alexa, play party songs.” If you have multiple Echo devices in your house, say “Alexa, play music everywhere” and Alexa will synchronise the music across all your devices.
Yoga with Shilpa Shetty: Going outdoors for a walk might not be a viable option these days, however, with the Shilpa Shetty Yoga skill on Alexa, fitness training and meditation has come to our homes. The skill offers single-day and multiple-day programs designed by celebrity fitness trainers and yoga experts with an aim to assist weight loss, build core strength and relax the senses through meditation. Try asking “Alexa, open Shilpa Shetty Yoga” and the skill will take you through asanas varying from warm-ups to balance, increase in energy, and flexibility.
