While it's helpful to follow along with a video when practicing yoga at home, YO:30 for Xbox fitness offers a more interactive way to get feedback on posture.

YO:30 sessions are led by Jake Ferree and are condensed into 30-minute sessions that challenge one's balance, flexibility, strength and self-awareness. Xbox Fitness scores users on their poses, which is different from many workouts that focus on intensity and working up a sweat.

While there have been some technology issues with the Kinect and other Xbox Fitness problems, YO:30 is designed to be practiced parallel to the television screen, which makes it very easy for the system to pick up on the proper alignments made with the body.
