Use voice commands to control PIVOT

You can control PIVOT Yoga with your voice, once you've registered your voice. PIVOT Yoga, by the way, only listens to you.  Your nephew cannot run into the room and hijack your PIVOT Yoga session by shouting commands!  (We've all been there with back-seat Siri hijackers.)  He can, however, interfere with PIVOT Yoga's ability to hear you, so you might need to tell him to pipe down.

You can tap on the screen of your device at any time to get to a list of commands, but here's a handy list:

  • Wait a Sec.  To pause the class, just say "Wait a sec!"  You can even use the name of your teacher, as in "Wait a sec, Molly!"  But you must say the command exactly-- "Hang on," "Wait up," and "Whoa now!" will not work.  Sadly!
  • Resume Playback.  When you're ready to get back to the class, either because you asked your teacher to Wait a Sec or because you asked here "How's  This Look?"
  • How's This Look?  We're not judging. PIVOT Yoga will never offer feedback unless you ask for it. But if you don't ask for it, by saying "How's This Look", PIVOT Yoga will take you out of the class and into a mode that directly compares your pose to the teacher's. At that point the teacher will automagically suggest an alignment change, if needed. You can also visually inspect your alignment by noting that your pose is superimposed on the teacher's. If you can see part of the teacher's body, it likely means you're not totally matching her pose.  (We normalize your avatar with hers so that the only difference is the yoga.)
  • Rotate Camera. In pose comparison mode, saying "Rotate Camera" enables us to show a different view of your pose (and the teacher's).  Each view is numbered, and the command rotates clockwise, one at a time, among the views. Note that when you ask "How's This Look", we automatically take you to the view that is best for seeing the alignment issue that's being discussed.
  • Quality Check. If at any point you feel like your avatar is not reflecting your movement properly, you can call this command, and follow the instructions. We'll run a little mini-check that takes about 5 seconds and that is quite likely to fix the problem. If it doesn't, you may have a different issue, like a poor calibration, or wearing the clothes in a way we didn't expect, or even defective clothes.

Hope this helps. Oh and btw, if you're in a class, you can always just say "A Little Help!" and you'll get a list of these commands as well.
