LOS ANGELES, July 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Easypose, today announced the expansion of its on-demand yoga instruction service that allows people to book a certified yoga teacher to their home, office or hotel via the Easypose web-site and mobile app. The company is now offering the service to all major areas of Southern California, San Francisco Bay Area, and New York metropolitan area.
Since its debut in late 2015, Easypose is primed to exploit the gaps in the $27 billion yoga market. The company has been overwhelmed with demand from people looking for a more personalized and convenient yoga experience. This growth parallels the 87% increase in yoga practitioners in the last five years, totaling 37 million people - 15% of U.S. adults, according to Yoga Journal.
"We want to change how people approach yoga and fitness," says Easypose co-founder, Venk Tatineni. "It is truly rewarding to launch Easypose, and serve the number of people who have been waiting for an easier, more efficient way to access more personalized instruction."
Easypose was created to eliminate pain points of practicing yoga: commuting to overcrowded studios, preparing for intimidating gym classes, or finding time for exorbitantly-priced private instruction. This platform equally serves yoga teachers as it provides a network of clients, and eliminates inefficiencies. Without it, most teachers are forced to charge more per-class to overcompensate for scheduling and maintenance. Easypose teachers are private contractors, so they can optimize their services, while best serving their clients.
The company offers simply-priced packages that start at $60 per one-hour class. Students can include up to 3 people in a session at no additional charge. At $20 per person, the private class is now comparable to that of the average public studio class. Customers book a teacher at will based on specific fitness goals, geographical location, and personal schedule.
The company is committed to improving the yoga experience for students and teachers alike. Easypose is based in Los Angeles, and is backed by notable investors including chairman and cofounder of LegalZoom, Brian Liu and Kris Gutta of Twilio.
