This year has been a big one in so many ways. Early on we were hit with a devastating second wave of Covid which left many of us confined to our homes and unable to take care of our own mental and physical health. We definitely felt it!
On the other hand, it was the second wave of the pandemic in India that guided us to start Ālaya Yoga. We wanted to put the people of India back in control of their health and wellbeing. In the words of our founder Yogacharya Lalit.
“We’ve started Ālaya Yoga to meet the growing need in India for health and wellness practises that are accessible to everybody in our diverse communities.
Ālaya means ‘home’ in Sanskrit, and Ālaya Yoga is about bringing the incredible healing power of yoga to everybody’s home.”
When we first started offering free community yoga classes we were just offering a few a week but we soon had a few loyal yogis joining us regularly and the feedback and response we received was extremely encouraging that we were on the right path.
Slowly we started offering more classes and within just a few months we were offering over 10 free yoga classes each week with amazing teachers from all over the world.
Alaya Yoga India Classes in 2021 – Over 360
Minutes of free yoga – 6000
Community Members – 11,000 and counting
Well, the answer is simply that we want to give more yoga to the people of India… more classes, more teachers and more support and guidance for everyone on their yoga journey.
That’s our intention for 2022… to continue giving back to India through the incredible gift of yoga and to do it in an even bigger and better way.
We’re very excited to announce that in the new year we’ll be offering a full daily schedule of live yoga classes, over 130 classes a month actually, with 6 amazing regular teachers and so many new styles of classes to choose from.
As well as this we’re opening a library of recorded classes and an online community group for support from teachers and fellow yogis.
Over 130 live classes each month
This is going to be amazing, Ālaya Yoga will be the only app you need to manage your health and wellness, and to continue our mission for accessible and affordable yoga for everyone we’ll be offering all of this for as little as 730rs a month!
That’s over 130 live yoga classes with India’s best teachers as well as all of our other features for the price of a few coffees.
We’ll also still maintain our commitment of offering yoga classes for completely free and will still have 2 classes each week for our free community members.
We couldn’t be more excited to start 2022 and to offer you so much more amazing yoga. It has truly been an incredible 8 months and we’re so humbled by the overwhelmingly positive response we’ve had so far. A huge thank you to everyone who supported our project this year, we couldn’t be where we are today without you.
Here’s to an amazing 2022!
