Mirrored fitness company Tempo has announced a beta version of yoga classes as a new category to its library of connected fitness content. As part of the beta program, Tempo has launched an initial 12 yoga classes, all led by head yogi, Jeremy Falk.
Tempo currently offers a lone product, a freestanding connected home gym that utilizes free weights. Due to its keen focus on strength training, Tempo offers a somewhat narrow variety of workouts compared to other smart home gyms. Regardless, Tempo’s workouts are personalized using a one-way, 3D sensor that offers feedback about your form in real time.
In previously covering Tempo, we have mentioned that the company was developing potential yoga content to arrive at a later date. Well that day has now come, as the fitness manufacturer announced a beta version of a new yoga category now available to members.
In a blog entry on its website, Tempo announced 12 new yoga classes as part of a beta program to test out the new category with members. Per the announcement:
We’ve launched 12 new classes designed to increase flexibility, balance, and power. Launched in beta, this series will soon incorporate instant form feedback using 3D Tempo Vision — the first of its kind in home yoga classes to provide this level of detail and attention to form. Tempo’s 3D AI form feedback alongside expertly designed classes will give our members the assurance that they’re training safely with a world-class yogi at the helm, all while never leaving the home and regardless of skill level.
All classes are lead by Tempo’s new head Yogi, Jeremy Falk who brings over 15 years of experience as a yoga instructor and personal trainer. While the category debuts with only 12 classes, Tempo plans to add more yoga content with Falk moving forward.
This new yoga content will be categorized into four different categories:
- Vinyasa Flow: Great balance of strength and flexibility, offering a cathartic experience with more fluidity of movement.
- Power: Focused on building physical and mental strength with longer holds to challenge isometric (engaging/contracting a muscle without movement) endurance.
- Restorative: Emphasis on building flexibility with little challenge in order to relax the nervous system and release stress.
- Learn: A beginner series that’s great for members who have little to no experience in yoga.
The initial 12 beta yoga classes are currently available in the Tempo app under the Classes tab.
