Whenever it’s time to plan my yoga schedule, my internet browser gets more of a workout than I do. My favorite teacher works at three different studios, but if those options don't work, I consider two other teachers who both teach at two studios and one in a park. In the end, I can have as many as eight browser tabs open just to figure out my next practice!
And I’m not alone. Most yogis go to class because of the teacher. The average yoga instructor teaches at three different studios, so if you have a few favorites, you'll have tons of options to sift through.
That’s a lot to keep up with, and it can be a headache to plan your schedule. Quite frankly, it’s a headache that shouldn’t exist. It’s 2015 and if Google is working on self-driving cars, I should have an easy way to keep track of my yoga teachers’ schedules.
Classic Problem, Modern Solution
YogaTrail is the World’s Yoga Network and we’ve built the solution. We call it “Class Guru”: a simple tool that puts all of your favorite teachers’ and studios’ schedules in one place. No more sifting through lots of websites and Facebook pages, no more spending twenty minutes to find a sixty minute class. Instead, your personal yoga world is all laid out for you.
And now we’re working on making all this available as a mobile app, so that all your classes are accessible anywhere and anytime.
The YogaTrail Mobile App
The app will make planning your yoga schedule a breeze. Simply follow all of your teachers and studios, ‘favorite’ the classes you attend regularly, and the work is done. Best of all, if anything changes, you’ll be the first to know by getting immediate notifications if the teacher changes or class is canceled.
Like the YogaTrail website, the mobile app will be totally free. However, it does costs money to build stuff like this, so we’re reaching out to the yoga community (i.e. you).
Support the YogaTrail Indiegogo Campaign
Help make it happen. We’re running a crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo right now where you’ll find some awesome perks for yogis. From handmade mala beads and SureDesign T-shirts all the way up to exclusive spots in some of the world’s best yoga retreats and teacher trainings, there's something for everyone.
But in addition to getting yoga gear and experiences, you’ll be putting the YogaTrail mobile app in your hands faster and supporting a social network that’s just for yoga. Welcome to a world where you can plan your whole week’s yoga schedule in less time than it took you to read this article.
