I did my Yoga Teacher Training at a beautiful retreat centre in the south of Spain. A wonderful environment to fully immerse yourself and learn. The 3 week intense course covered the history and philosophy of yoga, anatomy, learning the Sankrit names of over 100 poses, their correct alignment and how to assist students.
Co-design allows the user to contribute towards the design and/or making process. Emergent technologies, such as 3D printing and laser cutting, provide the opportunity for customisation. Handcrafts also lend themselves towards user interaction, and techniques like hand knitting, crochet and macramé are considered therapeutic and can be done at home by anyone. When the user becomes involved it develops a sense of attachment, satisfaction and can slow down the process of consumption through participation in craft.
