YogaTrail is a platform that connects yogis with their personal yoga world while helping yoga professionals to manage and grow their business.
YogaTrail is on a mission to empower yoga instructors, most of whom are female entrepreneurs. Although they're central to the yoga ecosystem, they're currently neglected by all the apps and companies in the space, and most are struggling to earn a living with yoga. Naturally, their second mission is to make the world a healthier and happier place.
I invited Alex Klein, CEO of YogaTrail onto the show to discuss the following data points and his tech startup story:
Female focus: female founder and 88% of teachers (and 75% of
students) are women
500 Startups alumni with some VC & angel backing
50k yoga teachers are using the platform in over 100 countries
Over 5 million yogis have connected with their yoga on YogaTrail
We don't often associate technology with Yoga, but I am fascinated by how it is helping YogaTrail unite Yoga lovers and teachers from all over the world.
