Abstract:Abstract: The concept of yoga has changed from being a path to spiritual
enlightenment to a more aerobic activity since its arrival from India to the
United States in the early 1970's. Instead of practicing one on one with a
yogi, participants now attend large classes with people of varying levels of
experience and ability. When the poses are performed correctly, yoga can
have many health benefits. However, when poses are done incorrectly over
a period of time it can result in pain and long-term injuries. These large
classes can often be intimidating and yogis often do not have time to cover
background information and safety information. This module fills the gaps
by providing, via the Internet, an interactive multimedia instructional
module covering those specific topics. The purpose of this instructional
design project was to develop and evaluate an interactive multimedia
instructional module for teaching adults with varied levels of yoga
experience basic background and safety information that would aid in the
comfort and safety of a person attending their first yoga class. Volunteer
participants evaluated the module and data was collected by surveys to
measure attitude towards the module as well as knowledge gained by
participating. Overall the participants found the module to be a valuable
resource in learning yoga.
