If you’re a yoga teacher looking to build a website, you may be wondering where to start. Before you begin the design process, you can save SO MUCH time by preparing all your content before you begin. Here are the key elements to consider:
High-quality photos are crucial for your website. They will help showcase your teachings, classes, and your unique personality as a teacher. Consider hiring a professional photographer (I (obviously) recommend Yogaroo if you’re in Australia) for a yoga photoshoot or use your own photos.
Check out this example from a website I recently designed – we pulled the colours directly from Jen’s photos to choose this gorgeous colour palette (you can also check out the full shoot here if you’re curious).
Your website copy should be clear, concise, and compelling. Your homepage should clearly communicate who you are, what you offer, and how you can help your students. Be sure to include a bio page, a description of your classes, and any other relevant information.
For example, this She Is Magnetic website I built includes a juicy “about me” section, links to all services, and a special event banner – each section links to a separate page with more information to keep the homepage clean and easy to navigate!
Your website should display your class schedule and any upcoming workshops or events. Make sure it’s easy for your students to find and register for your classes.
For example, check out the creative timetable feature at the bottom of this webpage I designed for Yoga With Ros:
If you teach at a studio, be sure to include a link to their website. This will help your students find you and your classes more easily.
Add links to your social media profiles, such as Instagram or Facebook, to your website. This will allow your students to follow you and stay up-to-date on your latest news and offerings.
Depending on your teaching style and offerings, you may want to include additional content on your website, such as testimonials from satisfied students, a blog to share your thoughts and ideas, or a store to sell yoga products.
For example, see Kaylie’s “Client Love” section peeking out at the bottom of this design (and you can spot testimonials sections in 2 of the above designs if you look closely!):
To wrap up, know that you’re setting yourself up for success when you prepare everything before you dive into the design side! By preparing these elements in advance, you’ll be well on your way to creating a beautiful, functional yoga website that accurately represents you and your teachings.

I mean, I knew it was going to be amazing coming from you - but that looks SO good! Thank you! That looks so, so, so good. Exactly what I was going for.

Thank you thank you thank you......can’t wait for next time"
Founder, Designer & Yogini.
There are a few things that matter very much to me in work and in life: a sense of adventure, a trust in creativity, and above all - a respect for our precious planet.
I love to create beautiful art for spiritual beings and brands who align with those values.
