7 Yoga Site Tips
Build your own yoga school
Do you know that you can build your own yoga school on The Yoga Site in a matter of minutes? It's a way for teachers to build or set up a yoga school online minus all the cost and confusion associated with personal yoga school websites. When you build a school, it's like setting up a Facebook page, quick and easy and you're also part of a network of yoga schools in one place. Your school is built in real time, right from within a web browser and can be built in minutes. Elements like scheduling, booking and management system come as standard (yes, the things that can cost a lot!) It's a great way for independent, small and new yoga schools to stay as up-to-date as the bigger schools.
Still use your personal yoga site
Do you know you can still use your personal yoga site in conjunction with The Yoga Site? We can install The Yoga Site calendar on your personal school website (includes calendar, booking system and basic management as standard) and you can use them together. Not only do you get to be part of our yoga network but you get the added benefit of having a mobile responsive calendar with all the mod cons on your personal yoga school website. It's a win-win situation. There is a small charge to install this but it is worth it! No monthly development fees or subscription fees and you get all the benefits as we update the site (e.g. better payment systems etc). READ MORE HERE.
Save your money for more important things
Do you know how much web designers charge you to build a website these days? It can be anything from €300 to €2000 depending on what you're looking for. By creating a FREE school on The Yoga Site you can save your money for more important things you need in the running of your school - like mats and straps let alone heating, insurance and rent!
Have your own payment system
Did you know that students can pay you directly into your bank account? It's a great way to not only cut out the confusion of payment after class but keeps track of your accounts and also give students a way to secure their place in class. To set this up, all you have to do is add your PayPal details to your account section. We are also moving to Stripe soon so you'll get all the benefits of that, (lower transaction fees, woo!)

Did you know that you can display your classes in an easy to use calendar when you set up a school on The Yoga Site? This is especially handy for students looking to book and pay for a class. Also, instead of manually creating a class every time you have one, did you know that you can choose for them to recur on a daily, weekly or even monthly basis. Also classes are easily editable and can be created or deleted quickly if you want to set up or cancel a class last minute. How helpful is that?
Relax about the maintenance of your website
Did you know that if you decide to create a school on The Yoga Site, you no longer have to employ someone to do your web design, programming or updating your interface? This is especially helpful if you're not as technically savvy or don't have the time to spend a few days a month doing updates and maintenance. The Yoga Site is built in real time, right from within a web browser and can be built in minutes. There’s nothing to install and no upgrades to worry about, we do all that for you. Another bonus is you don't have to pay anyone to do it either!
Be part of a network of yoga schools
Did you know that when you build a yoga school, you create your own individual school with it's own identity and information? However your school is part of a network of yoga schools. This is the perfect way to benefit off each other. It's always great to still have your own website but by coming together, you will benefit off each others traffic over time. We have big plans for the network and hope to make it all about you and your school needs.
