Yogatailor aims to absolve its clients of this difficulty by providing customizable online yoga videos. Students select how much time they have, what their expertise level is, and whether they're experiencing any back pain or are pregnant, and the site constructs an appropriate video for them almost instantaneously. Each time students return, the site remembers their progress level and which clips they've already seen so that it can adapt videos to suit their needs.
