In connection with the International Yoga Day, a mobile app on yoga and mindfulness, Aham, has been launched. The app, already available on Apple App Store and Google Play, provides video and audio instructions for asanas that will help with conditions ranging from neck pain to menstrual discomfort, motivation and insomnia.
Yoga and mindfulness have become very popular globally to deal with lifestyle disorders and injuries. It is a module that works not just on the body, but also incorporates breathing techniques and mind modules that help one lead a healthier, happier life. Nuthan Manohar, chief content provider of the app, says she has developed over 90 modules to deal with various physical and mental conditions such as body pain, autism, asthma, winter depression, bipolar disorder, stress, phobia, sexual dysfunctions, exam anxiety, trauma, diabetes, blood pressure etc. She says since 2010, she has been working on behavioural interventions to help others overcome pain and negativity.
Currently, this is the only such app available globally. On the occasion of Yoga Day, the beta version is being made public so that over 30 modules of audio and video demonstrations can be experienced free of cost. The aim is to upload new and relevant content every month — a huge task as it requires a lot of research and understanding of various medical conditions and human situations, content production and a robust technical team. There are also modules for those who have no physical ailment, but could use a few methods.
