MyYogaPro is an an online yoga program that combines 16 in-depth yoga video courses with a cool way to track your progress, earn rewards for your achievements and interact with other yogis on your journey. MyYogaPro puts YOU in control of your practice, wherever your are.
This is the story of a yoga teacher (Erin) and a lifestyle entrepreneur (Andreas), who realized that practicing yoga at home can be so much more than just watching boring videos.
In early 2013 Erin developed an online yoga video series to motivate people from around the world to do yoga for 30 days straight. Never had we expected that within a few months over 20,000 yoga enthusiasts would sign up for the 30 Day Yoga Challenge on the daily yoga blog DoYouYoga.com. We received thousands of emails and comments from people asking us for more. So we decided to create something bigger...something huge. The idea for MyYogaPro was born.
During months of research, development and planning, we have created MyYogaPro to be a super easy to use, all-inclusive online yoga program that will inspire your practice like nothing you've seen before.
MyYogaPro was developed with three goals in mind: Create an amazing yoga experience, make it rewarding, and make it social. Based on these principles we developed 16 targeted yoga courses that each contain between 5 and 30 classes. All in all, MyYogaPro comes with over 200 yoga classes. Since motivation is key in reaching your goals, you will earn a reward badge with every course that you complete. With every badge you earn, you collect points and level up. Kind of like in a video game! Your personal dashboard will help you keep track of your achievements and progress... just watch your progress bar advance as you complete your courses. MyYogaPro lets you connect with your friends or other yogis from around the world. You can share your badges, chat with your yoga buddies and do your courses together. Whether you're a beginner or have been practicing or years, MyYogaPro will keep you busy and learning for months, maybe even years.
MyYogaPro comes with a directory of over 200 yoga classes, video how-tos, sequences and poses at your fingertips. Each full yoga class comes with additional video tutorials that show you how certain poses are done or explain background information. Want to study Triangle pose in more depth? Click! There's a video for that.
Your yoga practice is based on 16 in-depth courses that are organized in 4 segments: Strong, Slow & Steady, Restore and Lifestyle. Each course consists of between 5 and 30 online yoga classes and has a specific goal. Whether you are looking to strengthen your core or become more flexible. There's a yoga course for everything. Pick your course, set your personal level and start practicing!
MyYogaPro lets you easily keep track of your progress. Watch your personal progress bar advance as you complete all the classes of a course. You will always know exactly how far you’ve come, when you will complete your current course and what your next yoga classes are.
MyYogaPro keeps you motivated with a cool system that lets you earn points, level up and even win badges while you practice. Finished all the classes of the „Getting Bendy“ course? Wohoo! You just earned the „Flexmaster“ badge. Depending on your level, we'll even recommend the right courses and difficulty levels, if you like. You'll always know how far you've come! And celebrating those little (and big) success moments with a shiny badge or new level is gonna make you feel oh so gooood!
MyYogaPro lets you connect and practice with yogis from all around the world. You'll get to share your newly earned badges, post status updates and chat and discuss with your buddies. Of course you can also choose to be entirely invisible, but that's no fun.
MyYogaPro allows you to practice on 3 different levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Expert. Each course will be available on all three levels. Completed all courses in beginner mode? Well, maybe it’s time to take it to the next level!
We understand you have a busy schedule and might sometimes need a reminder for your next yoga class. Well, we have a solution for that. MyYogaPro comes with full email integration, which means that we’ll send you an email when it’s time for your next class.

Where We Are
Thanks to an amazing team of supporters and advisors, we've come very far with developing the MyYogaPro platform and designing the courses.
The MyYogaPro technology is almost completely ready and the course material has been finalized. What's missing now is the video material.
Where The Money Goes
Making a project like this possible doesn't only require lot's of great people who put in their ideas and work, it also costs money. In fact, creating 200 HD yoga videos is a VERY costly matter. If we want to make MyYogaPro available for you, we'll need to produce crystal clear and fun to watch yoga videos. On top of that, we will have to invest a large sum of money in filming hardware, location rental, clothing, yoga equipment and technical aspects such as web servers, video streaming bandwidth and hosting. All of this adds up to quite a sum. And that's why we need your support.
Since most of the technical aspects have already been taken care of, we'll be able to deliver MyYogaPro within a few months. Here's a breakdown...
We can't make MyYogaPro come to life without YOU! If you want to be part of the home yoga revolution, then there are two things you can do to help us make MyYogaPro possible...
1) Back this project with a pledge that works for you.
2) Tell your friends to do the same (click here to spread the word)
We'd be absolutely stoked if you joined us on this fun and exciting journey!
Risks and challenges
We have an awesome team of seasoned developers, yoga teachers, videographers and business people working to make MyYogaPro come to life. Still, we’re not done yet. While the technical framework and online platform are almost entirely developed, we still need to produce the video content. Our biggest challenge is funding: we need to meet our Kickstarter goal to film 200 video yoga classes, edit them and make them available on MyYogaPro for you. If you don't help us meet our goal, we won't be able to make MyYogaPro happen.
We are ready to revolutionize the way you practice yoga! Are you?Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
