Watch the video above to hear how David, the founder, sees DoYogaWithMe's mission.
Our mission is to help the world achieve greater well being. For a decade, we have been making high-quality, online yoga instruction accessible to everyone. Since founding our company in 2008, we’ve recognized the power of yoga to both improve the lives of individuals and empower them to build a better society, and we feel that having much of our content accessible to everyone is an important element.
DoYogaWithMe is not like any other yoga streaming website. We offer most of our content for free. We don't even ask for an email address. We also don’t pretend to be anything we’re not. We don’t only feature skinny, beautiful yoga teachers and we don’t just feature photos of amazing poses. We honor what yoga is really about and recognize its potential to help a wide variety of people in a wide variety of ways. We are good at what we do, we love helping and creating positive change (even the small stuff) and we aren’t only here for the fame and glory.
Our main tenant is honesty. We don’t do anything we feel uncomfortable about and don’t like sales techniques that aren’t transparent. We don’t like forcing people to do anything and don’t do things just because they’re popular or they’ll make us a lot of money. We like to be honest. We care about the welfare of all and we want to be able to provide you with instruction and guidance that will help you feel better, have more energy and live with more joy.
Our Free Content Really Is Free
When we mean that a lot of our content is free, we mean free - no gimmicks. That way you can feel like you do not have to sacrifice anything to try us out. And we have hundreds of free streaming yoga classes, meditations, programs and challenges. To use our site for free, you can choose to come and go as an unregistered user or sign up for our free community membership, which allows you to comment on the site and contribute to our forum.
If you're looking for more, become a sustaining member (subscriber). For only $10/month or $99/year, you have access to our premium collection (marked with the symbol '+') of yoga classes, yoga programs, yoga challenges, guided meditations and peak pose challenges, as well as receive 25% off all downloads and join our most popular teacher, Fiji, in a private facebook group. There is no risk, you can cancel at any time and we never refuse a reasonable request.
Best of all, your subscriptions are what allow us to provide so much of our content free of ads and free of charge. So your money doesn’t just help us, and it doesn’t just help you. It helps others too.
All of our content is created by our close-knit team. From our instructors to our developers, web-designers, and videographers, we’ve hired people who genuinely live the principles of yoga: people who are authentic, generous, and love what they do. It’s why we’ve grown so much over the last ten years despite seldom resorting to paid advertising. We now have approximately 450 videos, 240,000 registered users, an average of eight people signing up every 10 minutes, and testimonials from people around the world explaining how our site has benefited their lives. All this by following a simple formula: hire good people, produce exceptional content, and back it up with fast, courteous, and reliable customer service.
We only choose teachers who genuinely care and who want to give. We only choose employees who resonate with our mission and are passionate about what we are doing.
We have all of the qualities of a true online community. You can easily spark a conversation on our forum, our teachers are easily accessible to you and we feature bi-weekly discussions on important yoga-related topics. For example, we recently asked "If we could design a yoga program just for you, what would it be?" and "What are the pros and cons of an online vs studio yoga practice?". We are frequently reaching out to hear from you and learn from you. We want to create videos and programs that you would benefit from. We also have teacher interviews twice a month and we post our teachers’ class bloopers.
We Like Being Small; We Have No Investors
DoYogaWithMe has two owners, brothers David and Sean Procyshyn. We like to be small enough to provide the attention and community feel that people appreciate. We aren’t a profit-driven corporation, yet we aren’t a nonprofit; somewhere in between. We care about people and the planet as much as we care about making money. We do not have investors.
We Love That You're Here
