Project Description

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.

> > HOW IT WORKS

TEACHERS - Create a profile, add your classes and promote your yoga teachings in one place. Bring the right students to your classes. Connect with your students the smart way and get followers that matter.

STUDENTS - Find the right class for your needs. Rate your teachers and help other yogis. Follow your favorite teachers and get yoga event updates from them.

The Project FAQs

This project is ambitious. Impacting the world positively is ambitious. But bringing technology to facilitate wellness for everyone is achievable and is closer than ever.

HOW FAST IS THE PLATFORM GROWING?
Our webapp launched in December 2017 and is currently focused in San Diego and Los Angeles, California. We will expand to other areas in the West Coast after further functionalities have been launched.

WHAT IS THE PLATFORM TECHNOLOGY?
FiitZ is bootstrapped, being build in AngularJS.

WHAT IS THE BUSINESS MODEL TO GENERATE REVENUE?
As of now, the platform is freemium. We want to further develop functionalities and deliver value to the yoga community before charging for anything. The team has been involved with many startups to know that users will pay for the right features. However, our business model will be subscription-based (SaaS) in the future.

WHAT IS THE CURRENT PROJECT PHASE?
The platform just launched and is currently testing product-market fit. We are engaging with our users (yoga students and teachers alike) and going through a few iterations of functionalities to develop our product roadmap, that includes our mobile app.
