yogasqnc was an idea that I had when talking with a friend. She was working at her day job and had to write a yoga sequence to teach at her yoga class that evening. I asked "wouldn't it be good if you could tell a website or app that you wanted to start with, for example, Child's pose, peak at Tiger Pose, and finish up in Corpse pose. And maybe tell it how long you want it to be? And then it gives you a yoga sequence". Her eyes lit up like I knew of an app that did exactly that. Sadly, I did not have an app.
After talking about how it should work, and all the shortcomings of all of the other apps that she had tried, we had agreed on a set of features. The app should be easy to use. You shouldn't have to be a yoga instructor to build a sequence. It needs to include flows (a set of poses that work well together). You need to be able to include pose variations. The app needs to be able to generate sequences that avoid specific poses based on flags such as avoiding knee bends, or hip flexing.
After a long break, we began by building the admin interface where we would manage the poses and the sequences generated. We then painstakingly entered hundreds of poses and meditations into the library and verified the information.
It wasn't long after we started working on the main features of yogasqnc, that OST opened up their platform to everyone and held a developer challenge. The challenge was to create a proof of concept that uses the OST platform for generating a utility token (on top of Ethereum) and transacting with it in the app. We succeeded within the challenge and we even have the base product to build on in the future.
This is a joint project with Nerida and myself, and we only really work on it in our spare time when we're both free. The updates may be slow with this, but we promise we'll get there!
