A new smart yoga mat, which is presently only a concept product, that can take the role of a physical trainer and guide your stance and posture is now available.

The mat named 'Tera' was designed by Munich-based company Lunar Europe.

Tera is incorporated with sensors and a configuration of LED lights.

The sensors record pressure and changes in body movements, and the available information is used to cue patterns in the lights, designed to guide stance and posture.

An app connects to the mat via Bluetooth, cueing up lights along the way, 'wired.Com' reported.

The smart map is designed circular in shape so as to correspond to the natural radius of human motion, facilitating transitions between poses and keeping up the flow of the practice.

Tera is programmed in such a way as to have utility across a wide range of activities besides yoga, such as Thai Bo, Pilates, or Zumba.

Tera proves to be equally beneficial in yoga meant for weight control as in yoga aimed at strengthening back muscles.

Lunar has not yet revealed the price of the mat or when it will be made available in the market.
