Thinking about the best way to stretch your web audience? Put yourself into the best position to grow with a .yoga address. Teachers, studios, yoga bloggers, and equipment vendors can all benefit from a .yoga domain name: it’s short, it’s memorable, and it makes an instant connection between your brand and yoga. It’s the best way to show - before someone has even clicked your site or opened your email - that yoga is what you do.
