MUSCAT: Santrupth G.R. Vedanthi, a computer engineering major student from Pennsylvania University has announced his plans to develop the first mobile application for Yoga in Oman.
Vedanthi, who is based in Muscat, will develop the “Tamoghna” app that is solely focused on yoga. “This app will have tutorial videos, traditional and scientific reasons for doing the asanas, and the benefits the user will get from doing them,” Vedanthi said.
In the app, there will be a brief description of each posture that we will translate from the ancient scriptures to make the experience even more vital and divine. “The app will also contain a music and podcast library that is apt for yogic practice. A set timer feature is present under each asana for the users to have an enchanted experience. There will also be an option where users can drop down the asanas they want to practice in a schedule to keep them on track,” he informed.
Vedanthi have received many awards for his work in the field of music and social work. “I have been conferred with the title as Oman Pride by a leading new agency in Oman. I have also received the Youth Award from my work related to charity,” he said.
Vedanthi also had the opportunity to attend courses under scholarships in MIT, Harvard and Stanford related to physics and music. “This app is not showcasing Yoga just as a fitness method but will show us the importance and why we do it and how we do it to maintain an outstanding balance in our life,” he explained.
“The current pandemic has taught us various lessons where we have undergone different kinds of emotions. Yoga is one such tool that will comfort our minds towards the betterment of our life. At the initial stage, this app will be free to download for users for both android and apple stores, and as we move forward, we will fix a subscription fee that will be economical for all the users,” Vedanthi added.
