YogaTribes is delighted to announce that it has been selected for participation in the 2015 Web Summit ALPHA Program. YogaTribes is planning the official soft launch of its platform during the 2015 Web Summit in Dublin, which will be attended by over 30,000 entrepreneurs and investors from around the world.

By bringing together teachers, students, studios and newcomers to yoga who are unsure how to start, the YogaTribes collaborative platform makes discovering local studios and learning about their yoga styles easier and more flexible, so that everyone can connect with the yoga lifestyle they love.

"With Web Summit right around the corner, our team is focused on growing the yoga community one city at a time. Teachers will spend more hours teaching. Students will find classes that suit them more easily. Studios will have a new business driver. And one day, yoga will be as important as drinking water," commented Sophie Lymburner, YogaTribes Founder and Executive Tribe Leader. "The reality is that 80% of the population who want to do yoga haven't even tried it yet," she added. "YogaTribes is here to streamline the process of connecting students with teachers and make life more fulfilling for everyone. The sharing economy has already revolutionized industries like taxis and hotels. Now it's yoga's turn to put the customer first while maximizing service efficiencies."
