Fine Yoga has around 1000 members in each of the two Beijing studios. And we have 5000 Yoga students from any corner of the Peoples Republic of China in our mailing list. Those 5000 Yoga students have participated in our workshops and/or our TTC (YA & IYF registered). Our TTC is currently the largest in China with about 50-100 people attending every month. We are very proud of our TTC and know that Fine Yoga graduates are first choice as teachers in other studios across China.
Workshops: Since the birth of Fine Yoga we have invited world renowned Yoga teachers to give workshops in China. In 2014 we are going to run workshops with more than 11 International top class teachers. Those workshops primarily attract Yoga teachers from all over China. Fine Yoga is a strong and very important education base of Yoga in China. We have a strong Ashtanga foundation but are running courses in almost all main Yoga styles. Fine Yoga is a diverse Yoga school welcoming all with a big smile.
Retail / wholesale:
Fine Yoga is both retailer and wholesaler for Manduka. (ref.June Pai / Sky Meltzer).
Clothing: Fine Yoga is currently selling the brands: Easy Yoga, Fashion Yoga, Life Yoga, BD Yoga and Yoga Hyde. Sales are primarily generated by our studios and retreat. Every month our TTC course pulls hundreds of fresh faces from all over China into our retail spaces. We believe that we have the largest clothing/mat sales volume of any Yoga studio in China.
From time to time a friend of ours has taken Lululemon clothes from Hongkong to our shops. And stock always sold out within a day or two. Therefore we know that Lululemon and the Lululemon quality/design is in great demand.
DVDs and books:
Sherri Rao has translated several DVDs and one book. In our shop we sell the Ashtanga Yoga book by John Scott, John Scott’s Ashtanga DVD, David Keil’s two Yoganatomy DVDs and Jennifer More (Wolfe) Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga DVD. All translated by Sherri Rao.
We do not plan to produce our own brand of Yoga products. We always go for the original and that is what our students like.
