Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 24, 2005
A newly launched Web site, http://www.YogaConnect.com, provides the first conscious dating and community Web site for the yoga culture.
Every day, yoga continues to have a transformational effect on the lives of people in the US. Currently 20 million Americans are practicing yoga with that number continuing to grow rapidly. While there are an incredible number of people experiencing the yoga awakening, many still find themselves wondering where to look in this rapidly emerging culture to find like-minds. In fact, seeking out others who share a passion for yoga has been pretty much confined to those who practice sun salutations at their local studiosÂ until now, thanks to a site appropriately called YogaConnect (http://www.yogaconnect.com).
The inspiration for YogaConnect came in 2004 when, just prior to the start of a yoga class, the soon-to-be founders overheard a fellow practitioner commenting to a friend about how great it would be to meet someone who shared her love of yoga. This comment, along with their own passion for yoga, led the Los Angeles based group to create a fun and unique destination for those experiencing the yogic lifestyle. With yoga having such a profound effect on many people's lives, the company realized the moment was right to create a site where the yoga culture could interact, explore, share ideas and create relationships of all kinds.
Yoga means union, which is exactly what YogaConnect is about. ÂThere's a magic that occurs when we begin to practice yoga. We may find ourselves more interested in environmental issues, adopting a healthier lifestyle, or embracing more opportunities for personal growth. These kinds of changes compel you to cultivate new relationships with others who are having a similar experience. YogaConnect provides a space for yoga enthusiasts to do just that.Â shares Chris Roy, one of the company's founding partners.
As dedicated yogis themselves, the YogaConnect founders are committed to bringing yoga-minded people together in a healthy, balanced and fun-filled way. One example called ÂVibesÂ are fun yogic messages that members send back and forth, like ÂYou are a GoddessÂ and ÂYou light up my Chakras.Â Also featured are lifestyle articles provided by Yogi Times, a teacher/studio directory and an engaging member profile questionnaire. Community Guru and co-founder Hong Vo explains, ÂWhile answering our profile questions you may discover some very interesting insights about yourself. It seems to us that there is much more to people than their occupation or how much they earn. YogaConnect really gets to the heart of a person.Â
The Web site is now live and is inviting yogis to logon and register for their free membership. With everyone from Russell Simmons to Madonna helping to popularize yoga, the company is confident the site will quickly populate. Says Roy, ÂWe created YogaConnect to appeal to all levels and styles of yoga. Whether you're just beginning the yoga journey or you're certified master, youÂll find a warm welcome here.Â
YogaConnect is the first conscious dating and community Web site created as the premier online destination for yoga enthusiasts to connect outside of the studio. YogaConnect provides a light and enjoyable setting for the yoga culture to interact, discuss, share ideas and create conscious relationships of all kinds. So, whether you are just beginning the yoga journey, are a dedicated practitioner or certified master, youÂll find a warm welcome at YogaConnectÂ Where the Yoga Culture Meets Online.
