The Mat is dedicated to discovering places where Yoga professionals (teachers, program directors, and studio owners) can list their offerings. One of the most commonly aspects teachers shared, as a challenge to their time, was knowing where to list their offerings.
This space is also a resource for the lay Yoga practitioner to find places to learn Yoga (and more specifically asana in some cases) both in person or online. Plus a variety of other related resources.
