Step 1 of the vision is complete: Creating an app for Yoga Professionals and launch to the YogaMate Community Initial Beta testing gave us feedback on the functionality of the app interface. The process also further cemented the importance of providing a voice for the Yoga Therapy community to contribute to knowledge base that supports these apps. This is where you come in!
Call for Interest
In June 2019, YogaMate will launch our second app - a free app developed for the public app. This app will feature yogic practices across the full Yogic Toolbox - from philosophy to breathwork and meditation (as well as asana). The app will also include a directory of Yoga Specialists & Therapists, helping the public connect with individuals based on their areas of expertise.
We aim to help combat the public's misperception that Yoga = Asana. The public app will include more Yogic Philosophy, more Meditations, more Breathwork. We'd also like to create more diverse & therapeutic imagery. People need to understand that if you can breath you can practice Yoga. And when we consider the many different lineages, research and lifetimes of experiential knowledge; how can we present the best, evidence-informed knowledge? We're leaning to the experts in the community to help us enhance our data.
Reaching the global community
If you can breathe, you can practice Yoga. Our public app will help share this message and champion Yoga Therapy. The app will (freely) share YogaMate's full Yogic Practices Library and expand public understanding of the depth, breadth and therapeutic applications of Yoga. It will also connect the public with a global directory of Yoga Therapists & Specialists around the world with the ability to search by areas of expertise.
Championing Yoga Therapy
On August 14, 2019; about 8 weeks after the public app goes live, YogaMate will host a global event promoting the field of Yoga Therapy and the Yoga Therapists & Specialists of the YogaMate community. Any Yoga Therapist or Specialist can choose to get involved: If you're interested in learning more, register your interest at bit.ly/YMGlobaEvent Full details coming soon!
Contribute your knowledge
Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much (Helen Keller). Here at YogaMate, we believe in the knowledge of the collective. Help us improve the knowledge that sits behind our apps (before) we launch our public app.
