Do you play virtual games? Try this new flash game Gaiam just launched called ConcentratiOm (based on concentration). It features Rodney Yee (we recently featured here) and Colleen Saidman demonstrating yoga poses. . The way it works is simply based on concentration and players must uncover yoga mats and match up each pose with its name before time runs out. You can check it out here. Simply play and you may win:
- 3-day yoga retreat + airfare
- $750 in Gaiam & Visa® gift cards
- 3-month Gaiam Yoga Club membership + 1GB iPod Shuffle®
- Gaiam yoga DVD collection
“Learning and remembering yoga pose names has never been more fun! See how many yoga poses you can match to their names in 2 minutes and enter for a chance to win fabulous prizes! Whether you’re new to yoga or an advanced yogi, you’ll have fun giving those brain cells a quick yoga workout. New poses every time you play!”
This is a fun educational game for anyone interested in learning more about yoga.
Recently, browsing around the “Ecosphere” I also read about the journey EcoFabulous took around the cyber sustainability land in Second Life. Recreational games turned educational, and educational games turned recreational are all fine by me. In any event, right now I am focused on making sustainable choices in my first life, and this creative, life like memorizing game could even be applied in a real yoga studio class. Enhancing memory while exercising is a new creative sport in gaming!
