How did we come to be?
The Yogassential App is the brainchild of 2 sisters; Raquelle, the eldest has been a yoga teacher for 5 years whilst Jessica is a fairly recent yoga devotee.It all started in the summer of ’16 when Jessica decided it would be a good idea to give yoga another try as historically it was never her thing. Wanting to receive a private, high quality bespoke yoga lesson to understand yoga in a deeper way Jessica set out looking for a teacher.

Surprising, it wasn’t that easy. Whilst a quick google returns various teacher’s websites and profiles the first step was simply, who to trust? There’s not much to go on, in the end she had to take a leap of faith and just start calling to see who was available at the time she desired.

6 phone calls later and she finally found a teacher able to come at the required time, all in all the process must have taken at least half an hour and she started thinking… it shouldn’t be that difficult in today’s day and age. Fortunately the teacher who attended was highly skilled and insightful and Jessica was hooked.

When she told Raquelle about her experience of trying to book a lesson, Raquelle simply said, ‘How ironic, the amount of teachers seeking more clients and yet clients can’t even find one for when they want, there must be a better way.’

Whilst Raquelle is now proud co-owner of Fringe yoga, based in Hertfordshire she clearly remembers the early days of running around, trying to drum up more business yet feeling concerned about the security aspect, flaky clients and simply not always being able to teach clients at the specific times they required.

In a Eureka moment, experiencing the issues on both sides of the equation Raquelle and Jessica decided there must be a better solution.

In today’s modern world there’s an app for everything but very little to help find teachers and co-ordinate private yoga lessons so why not make one.

And the Yogassential App was born.
