New MINDBODY YogaScene offers free content for yogis and their social networks

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., Feb. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Since its inception in 2001, MINDBODY has consistently broken new ground by offering its clients the latest online tools to help them succeed. The company’s latest device, a social media player called the MINDBODY YogaScene, goes beyond traditional online tools by providing free content to yoga fans via their social networks.

The new YogaScene media player (www.facebook.com/mindbodyfinder) was released by MINDBODY in collaboration with yoga and spiritual masters Shiva Rea, Ram Dass and Krishna Das. The player allows users to watch videos, listen to music and interviews, shop for yoga products and find yoga classes–all in one place. Users can share this free content by clicking the “share” button at the top of the player and indicating on which social media platforms they’d like to share, bookmark or e-mail the player.

MINDBODY clients who offer yoga classes will reach practitioners in a whole new way through the YogaScene’s “Class” section, where users can find yoga classes in their area, no matter their location. Users can also download this feature as a mobile app to their smartphones through the YogaScene’s “Cool Stuff” section. Businesses not already listed can easily add their locations for free by going to www.mindbody.com.

In addition to this yoga class finder, the MINDBODY YogaScene offers free content including music from Krishna Das, streaming videos from Ram Dass and Shiva Rea, interviews from Ram Dass and links to yoga products from partners like Manduka and be present.

“The MINDBODY YogaScene is just the latest way we have embodied our mission to leverage technology to improve the health and wellness of the world,” said Stollmeyer. “By connecting more practitioners with these yoga leaders, and by offering simple ways for people to remain active while on the go, we continue to help improve the health of yoga fans the world over.”
