I’m Len, CEO and co-founder of WellnessLiving. We are the fastest-growing all-in-one business management software in the health and wellness space, and one of the business types we work with are yoga studios. I’m very passionate about staying in shape, and every time I take a yoga class, I end up feeling so relaxed and peaceful. I love whenever I get to spend time with our yoga studio customers because I get to learn more about their incredible businesses and success using our business management software.
First, let me tell you about our story. Getting here wasn’t easy, but I’m proud of how we did it—it took a lot of hard work, support from the dance community, and a little bit of fate.
In 2009, I started a bootcamp that grew into a business with multiple locations across North America. As the business grew, I was overwhelmed with the increasing fees from my business management software: Mindbody. I knew there had to be a better solution.
By luck, I ran into my childhood friend, Sasha Davids (now co-founder and COO of WellnessLiving), while on vacation in Jamaica. We spent the whole week catching up and I shared the challenges I was facing with my customer relationship management (CRM) and scheduling software and knew I wasn’t alone.
Together, Sasha and I made it our mission to create an affordable, easy-to-use, and customizable solution for our customers. After all, our customers are our #1 priority. Our team has spent countless hours developing every new software feature with yoga studio owners like you in mind. We’ve made scheduling yoga classes simple for you and your staff, making the process of registering, booking, and checking in convenient for your clients.
- Our Achieve Client App lets clients view your schedule, book, pay, and check in to yoga classes from any device.
- Custom website widgets let you capture leads, so clients book directly from your website or Facebook Page.
- Our Reserve with Google feature allows clients to find and book your in-person or virtual yoga classes right from web searches or Google Maps.
- Our Zoom integration lets you set up and host livestreamed yoga classes or workshops for your members.
- You can store your recordings with our FitVID on Demand feature, letting clients view your on-demand video library any time they want.
- BOOK-A-SPOT™ makes it easy for clients to reserve mats, straps, or their favorite spot in the room.
Our customers tell us all the time how happy they were to have made the switch to WellnessLiving. One of those customers is Cat Koo Levine, the owner of Be Yoga Andersonville in Chicago, Illinois. I had the honor to speak with Cat as part of our CEO Tour—a passion project of mine where I visit our customers, listen to their amazing stories, and even take a class.
When I spoke to Cat, she explained how nervous she had been about migrating all her business data and the impact it may have had on their day-to-day business operations. After all, Be Yoga Andersonville had been in business for 11 years at the time, which is a lot of historical client data to deal with. Fortunately, any fears were quickly put to rest as our experienced Onboarding and Support Teams seamlessly migrating her entire business within weeks.
Cat is now taking advantage of all the great features our software has to offer. For instance, she’s able to stay connected with her yoga students in a whole new way with our automated marketing suite. It allows Cat to easily build personalized, automated email campaigns to remind students before a class, congratulate clients for reaching certain milestones, request that clients write a review, and more.
Life got so much easier for Cat after she switched to WellnessLiving, and it can help your yoga studio, too. Watch the video below to learn more. I had such an incredible time learning about Cat’s journey as a yoga student and transition to studio owner. I even got to take a hot yoga class where Cat showed me a few poses.
