(1) The offer keeps on growing without it being properly displayed and tracked: lots of studios, teachers or classes are not listed or do not even have a website or are using a different format (live videos, meetups, personal coach, etc.). (2) Your experience from class to class can be completely different, with unclear discrepancies such as: price, length, intensity, attendees & teaching styles.

Most aspirational yogis give up before giving it a try due to the uncertainty of what to expect, which makes the barrier to try higher: pricing policy might be unclear, difference between yoga types not always explained and doubt about their lack of flexibility or the level required.

For the ones who do try a class, a large part find that their expectations are not always delivered: length of the class can differ, teaching style might not be a good fit, etc.

In general you can see in the yoga world that practitioners try out multiple classes before finding a right fit.

Where Is My Mat guides both veteran yoga practitioners and beginners in their yoga practice to find and book the right yoga class, workshop, retreat or even teacher training suited to their needs by systematically organizing all events and relevant content. In one view, you can easily identify and compare classes on price, duration, location, and style. Making it easy for yourself to start your yoga practice.

Where Is My Mat not only provides a unique, user-friendly experience for students, but also greatly simplifies the online marketing process and student management for yoga professionals.

Unlike our competitors we are the one stop platform for all yoga events. We are the booking.com for yoga classes and events.
