YogaGuruji services can be subscribed to by yoga classes and teachers for monthly fees. It’s a subscription based service where classes and teachers can pay as they go with no long term contracts. By having this service in SaaS model TOC is reduced to just INR 1000/month for a nearly INR 800,000 software.

A lot of yoga classes have people who are not very tech-savvy so people will not come online and will subscribe directly to YogaGuruji services. For some time this service will have to follow a push based sales model to make this industry recognize the importance and value which technology can add to their business. So creating awareness about this is important. Once we have got a lot of teachers and classes onboard we need to also promote this as the site where a yoga enthusiast can get information about credible yoga classes and teachers,” says Hemant.
