Abstract

An inherent consequence of the turn to a third-wave HCI is the need to design for diversity in interaction and therefore a need for personalization of movement-based interactions, based on each's skills and characteristics. However, one of the major challenges is the question how designers can represent movement. Personalization is an essential issue in Yoga practice because there are no standard movements. The specific actions and poses depend on the individual body conditions of each practitioner. Three movement-based representations for personalized feedback during Yoga were developed (visual, auditory and haptic). Different participants offered different explanations about the feedback they received during the exercises. This leads us to believe that there is indeed a need for personalization of movement-based representations.
