Deepak Chopra will be releasing a video game in November that promises to “enhance the mind-body connection” through interactive full-body motions and breathing techniques. Leela, which is a Sanskrit word that means “play,” will be available for both Nintendo Wii and XBox 360. It uses interactive meditations and exercises to help players relieve stress and find balance, and visual imagery to help facilitate these goals. You can also create personal mandala though the program.
“I wanted to explore how you can use games to not only have a good time, but to increase that experience of flow and actually maximize your physical and mental capacity,” Chopra said in an interview with CNN.
