yoga biomechanics testing

Remote individualized yoga sessions include biomechanics testing before and after class and participants receive their personalized biomechanics reports after class. Our software platform extracts skeletal data from 2D video using TensorFlow's PoseNet API. Combined with manual data refinement, strict test administration, and cues to capture face-on or perpendicular-facing body data, we assess 18 range-of-motion measures in a two minute exam. See sample report.

“Class with Steph is an incredibly unique and rewarding experience. As a former competitive athlete, I appreciate the combination of endurance, power, balance, flexibility, and rhythm she incorporates into her practice. However, Steph’s greatest strength as a teacher is her ability to get your mind locked in the zone so you can maintain that deep sense of focus from start to finish. She is the best yoga teacher I’ve had the opportunity to work with and her resume speaks for itself.”
