NewU Mind Body Yoga&Pilates Workout is the first comprehensive yoga and Pilates experience compatible with Wii Balance Board™ and Wii Motion Plus™. A professional trainer works with users to create a customized fitness program intended to make them feel calm, refreshed and ready to deal with the rigors of the everyday world. Furthermore, the program is designed to boost fitness, strength and an overall sense of well-being.

Although not necessary to enjoy the program, Wii Balance Board and Wii Motion Plus capabilities allow users to benefit from the precise feedback of a real-time personal trainer.

“Time is a premium commodity for many people and getting to the gym for a program such as this is often difficult to fit into a busy schedule,” said Geoff Mulligan, COO of Deep Silver.“On top of that, personal trainers and gym memberships can be extremely expensive.
