‘Health is wealth’ which is now changed to ‘Losing health for gaining wealth’ in the modern society. People are having busy schedules and they are not concerned about their health. Studies shows that a lion share of people all over the world undergoes mental stress due to the circumstances and pressures from both family and office. This mental stress factors can physically and mentally deteriorate the creativity and productivity of a person. Yoga can be considered as one of the finest solutions in this case though it refreshes both physically and mentally. Yoga transforms a person balanced with mental, physical and spiritual elements in the right composition. In this technology era, it will be good to integrate yoga with the trends of technology. This work proposes a scheme of integrating and monitoring yoga activities using the concept of Internet of Things (IoT) and a smart application. The body sensors (Pressure, temperature, humidity) attached with the person doing yoga senses relevant data and is processed using a central processor (Smart phone or smart devices) to provide necessary suggestions or feed backs to the user. This work will provide a platform to the yoga practice person to monitor and review their yoga activities by themselves. Our research results claims that the various parameters like blood pressure and heart beat rate is improvised a lot after practicing yoga and our system is much helpful for the yoga persons to practice yoga in an effective manner.
