FiitZ is a community-driven platform for yogis, much like Airbnb is for travelers, with the objective to help the yoga industry reorganize as it matures further. We want to empower people to do more yoga, anywhere. Creating technology catered to yoga teachers is going to help students find the right classes, workshops, and retreats. Our vision is to make yoga easy to find and available everywhere, to everyone.
In the last 1,5 years, I have lived in 10 different places, and 3 different countries for work before coming back home to San Diego. My biggest challenge was to do yoga anywhere I went and find the teachers I could truly connect with. When I got back here, I was eager to make that process of finding a yoga teacher a bit easier and the whole experience, more pleasant. That is how FiitZ was born.
We believe a 16 billion dollar industry could be better organized.
Today, 20.4 Million people practice yoga in the US. Let's bring yoga, wellness, and meditation to even more people worldwide.
