“Yoga for Wii is a high-quality game and was designed for all those who are interested in learning more about this ancient Indian philosophy and who want to get their body in shape and their mind balanced,” says Markus Reutner, Marketing Manager at JoWooD.
Anja Rubik (international Top 5 model) will be featured in “Yoga”. She guides the player, along with an interactive Yoga guru, through the game and supports the player by providing handy hints.

On the basis of your modifiable Yoga training schedule, you can check your progress in becoming a guru on your own!
