Yoga and meditation lovers around the world have a new way to connect thanks to a world-first mobile app called myyodaa. The app will connect yoga and meditation students and teachers around the globe, via personalised, live, one-to-one video classes – at a time, place and a pay-as-you-go price they choose.

New Zealand women Ziena Jalil, Erin Leuschke and Gina Beck conceived the idea when they were looking to maintain healthy lifestyles while balancing work and family commitments. That need has only grown in the wake of Covid-19.

“This is like an Airbnb for wellness. Unlike existing apps which offer pre-recorded videos, one-to-many online classes, or a small number of teachers from a specific studio teaching their specific school of yoga online, myyodaa provides an open platform, from which qualified teachers can deliver personalised classes to students,” said co-founder Ziena, who was formerly New Zealand Trade Commissioner to Singapore. “As working mothers, we know how hard it is to keep up a regular fitness practice. Along with the pressures of time, money and childcare, you want to get the right teacher for you and without it costing the earth.” Ziena shared they started building myyodaa in January 2019 and with Covid-19 hitting, it has made the app a lot more relevant.

Students, including absolute beginners, can browse teachers (called yodaas) and book personalised sessions based on class type, ratings, availability, language or cost. Live video classes can take place within the app saving users from having to navigate through a multitude of platforms.

Added Ziena, “Our teachers have a range of experiences and cater to various needs. At the time of booking a class, students can search for their specific needs, or even message teachers through the app and inform them of their requirements. All our classes are personalised for individual students;  there is no pre-prepared generic content.”

myyodaa is available for free download from the AppStore and Google Play.
