Product samples are hand-delivered by studio staff prior to or at the conclusion of classes, supported by custom branded studio signage. Yoga practitioners are highly receptive to samples in this environment because there is a high level of trust that far exceeds other fitness regimens and venues.
To ensure that this trust is maintained, brands with which we work must meet benchmark criteria (e.g., fit the yoga lifestyle, have natural or organic ingredients, be non-GMO (for food brands), and embody attributes that provide health benefits, etc.). This ensures that products that we deliver to our studios are ones which they will embrace, support and recommend to their students. This is why our trial rates average more than 90%.
