Yoga is an ancient Indian tradition of healthy living dating back more than 5,000 years. It is a unique blend of physical exercises, special breathing, relaxation and meditation, helping to achieve emotional, physical and mental wellness through the balance of the mind-body-spirit trinity.
Introduced to the west only in the 19th century, the discipline of yoga gained a wide acceptance – not only as effective stress management tool, but as a respected system for health and well-being. Fascination with the benefits of yoga practice has never been bigger.
Practicing yoga means believing in the intelligent design of human body. Yoga helps the body to maintain the complex balance within, working on muscular, nervous, digestive, endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory and other systems.
Considering the diversity of yoga, it is easy to find the type of practice that is right for you. Some of the most famous yoga styles include:

Most of the technological aspects have already been taken care of. YogaTime platform is done by 30%. Here is a breakdown of our project timeline:
Risks and challenges
We have an ambition to successfully launch this project and make it the ultimate online place to learn yoga. Driven by passion for both technology and yoga, we already accomplished 30% of the project without any external funding. Your backing would help us to speed things up tremendously!
We are so determined and well prepared that only the total shutdown of internet in the United States or invasion from Mars would prevent us from launching the project. On a more realistic note, the biggest calculated risk is the developers. They are human after all (are they? :)). If one developer leaves or messes up, it won't play havoc with the project. We have an extended team of talented developers and a reasonable timeline for them to pick up where the work was left.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
