Team Yoga Education Society is based in Chiang Mai, Thailand (best place on the planet). None of us could be called an expert on any particular style of yoga. While some of us are ex-yoga teachers, for the most part, we're just people who love yoga. Collectively, we’ve sampled a huge assortment of yoga: classes in many different styles, with all kinds of tutors, at many studios, and we’ve also tried out a range of resources for self-practice. Discovering and undergoing all this variability, and getting to know all those people has been wonderful. But the time spent scouring the internet trying to figure out what’s out there occasionally also resulted frustration. When searching the web for yoga, we found the results to be often unclear, sometimes completely overwhelming, or just simply lacking. And it turned out that some of our best yoga experiences came through a reference by someone else. And then there's the painful way that we went about finding classes to go to - most yogis have favourite teachers that they like to take classes with. But because tutors are usually freelancers who work in many different places, we spent almost the same time figuring out where and when a decent class would be coming up as we did actually doing yoga in the class. In a nutshell, we spent a lot of time contending with the question: how do you find and follow your yoga.
That's how Yoga Education Society was born: website where yogis can share their practices and opinion, and help each other find their yoga, whether they’re looking for places to practice, or tutors to practice with. We launched in the summer of 2013.Read More»
