From Small Beginnings…
In 2008, Vancouver-based yoga instructor, David Procyshyn, began videotaping his classes to post online. There was a lot to learn in those first few years and a lot of camera equipment to acquire. But the video library multiplied quickly, and other yoga instructors and partners began to get involved. Many years, and three website upgrades later, DoYogaWithMe has grown from a few hundred video views a month to over a million and people all over the planet are enjoying the benefits of yoga.
Who Are We Now?
David’s brother, Sean, eventually took on part ownership, bringing his developer, SEO and management skills to the team. Together, David and Sean create and curate all of the content, manage the business and maintain the website. They build relationships with teachers they love and people who are amazing at what they do. They do their best to encourage a feeling of openness, generosity and sincerity with both their team and their community.
The DoYogaWithMe Mission
Our mission is to provide the world with high quality, free yoga online.
We want to provide a safe place for you to learn how to do yoga, feel better and maybe even experience something transformative. We built this site around you, your needs and what you love. We are always listening and strive to deliver the best content that we can.
We also work diligently to stay true to the purpose of yoga by being honest, real and open. We run our business with honesty as our guiding principle. We choose teachers who have similar core values, and this has created not only a cohesive team but a strong friendship among all who are involved in this labor of love. We recognize that our fabulous teachers are our greatest resource, so we treat them with the love and respect they deserve, which translates into a site that feels like a community, like a movement of people who share a common goal.
Our Freemium Model
We feel that an essential element to binding our community is easy access to high-quality yoga online. Hence, the freemium model. You can play any video or meditation and participate in any program or challenge without a plus sign on it without creating a profile or paying a penny. To maintain the quality and free aspect of our site, we also offer exclusive content. By subscribing for $5 per month (or $55 per year), you not only gain access to our premium content, but you also allow millions of users who can’t afford it, to continue to better their lives through the power of yoga.
Our Commitment To Our Community
Our promise to you is to never charge for our free content. As long and Sean and David are running the show, the content that is currently free on our site will always be free. We will also continue to create both high quality free and subscriber-only content, forever, featuring instructors who are highly experienced and skilled. We will always be present on the site, monitoring comments and helping you resolve any questions or issues. We are here for you!
We hope that our mission and core values resonate with you and what you want from a community that focuses on health and well being. We hope that it resonates so much that you join one of our programs or challenges or begin a discussion with our community in our forum. We are here for you and want you to get the best out of what we have to offer.
Thank you, namaste, and we’ll see you on your mat!
David, Sean and the DoYogaWithMe Team
