From Jarrett: The idea for Yoga Class Plan came about back in 2007. In fact, at that time, all Martijn and I knew for sure was that we wanted to be involved in the Yoga industry on some level. When Martijn and I met, neither of us had been practising Yoga for longer than a year, but we both had a great respect for the mental balance and physical health Yoga brought into our lives. And, although we considered developing applications for different markets, we always ended up talking about Yoga software solutions. Thinking back on it now though, I know it was more than the benefits Yoga brings to ones life that drove us to ultimately launch a Yoga product. In fact, it was more about all the wonderful and positive people we met as a result of practising yoga, especially Teachers. I have thought about this often throughout the years and I can honestly say, I don’t think there is a more rewarding group of people to work with and for. After two years of research and development, we finally launched Yoga Class Plan in 2009. And in these last six years, we have worked hard to make it a better, more useful tool; it continues to evolve and we are just excited now as we were at its first release to be working with Yoga Teachers on a daily basis. If you have not already, we invite you to try the software for yourself. There is a 15 day trial offer as well as a 60 day money back guarantee. Lastly, I would like to say that customer experience is as important to us as the functionality of the software, more in fact. If you ever have a question, concern, issue with billing, we will make sure you are taken care of.
From Martijn: Originally from Netherlands, but after that I’ve called Canada my home. Most of my life I’ve been working in I.T. and web development. And after getting in touch with the amazing world of Yoga and meeting Jarrett, we both saw the opportunity to combine our skills and visions, and we came up with the concept for the Yoga Class Plan application. It’s very exciting to have the opportunity to make people’s life easier by providing the tools. And through this being able to help spread the word of Yoga. Being a perfectionist when it comes to my work, it did mean having to occasionally take a few steps back and doing things over again, but in the best way possible. However since I have a passion for both yoga as well as for web development, the late nights and early mornings have been an enjoyable journey to what I hope will show in the product. I’m eager to hear back from users in order to continue making this better and better as it grows, since it’s meant to do what you – the user – decides it should do.
