New Worldwide Yoga Directory

As a welcome break from coding Flash games, one of our currect projects is the development of a large directory of yoga sites and studios.  The idea for creating a worldwide directory of yoga teachers came about when searching online for yoga teacher training courses earlier this year, and struggling to find the information I was looking for.  When I realsed there was a need for a decent yoga directory Yogaly.com was born.

The first 3 months of the project have been spent doing market research and collecting the relevant data.  We hired 2 researchers who have scoured the web and put together a database of several thousands yoga teachers, studios and web sites across the globe.  We have now built the framework CMS for the site and entered phase 2 of the project as we start to populate the site with the data listings.

This phase is likely to take several weeks, as we are manually checking every link and ensuring accuracy of information but by mid-summer we expect to have the world’s largest human edited yoga directory.  We’ll then move into phase 3 with the adding of more articles and videos, and integration of user generated content.

In the meantime, if you have any interest in yoga please feel free to visit the site.  If you know of a teacher local to you, you can submit your own listings, and you can rate and review any listing on the site.  Check back soon for another update.
