Sangha Session 9: "What class filters would you like to see, along with Style, Duration, Teacher and Difficulty?"


#21

Adding challenging beginner please.


#22

If you are still counting, in order of preference, main body part would be useful (I have searched poses but have no skill in tying them together). Maybe equipment/no equipment? Main purpose (although type of yoga possibly helps here) ie stretch/release, strength, flexibility. However I find a class - sometimes by accident - I find benefit in them all.


#23

Hi David, I agree with the body part focus and also including things like flexibility, strength etc. I also thing it’s useful, along with beginner, intermediate and advanced to have an ‘all’ category, eg the yin classes are tagged as beginner but personally I find them the most challenging. However, by doing a class many times I am learning to do them in a more advanced way (ie slow doesn’t necessarily mean easier!) I belong to another online yoga service and they have the categories I have mentioned and they are extremely useful.


#24

Definitely by focus eg relaxation, strength, flexibility, stamina


#25

I agree with what a lot of other folks are saying about body part of focus / or a thematic focus (relaxation, strength, etc.), as well as a shift in the time filters. Someone gave the example of looking for a 30-50 minute class, and to do that currently might involve scrolling through two separate searches.

Something that would be a game-changer for me would be the ability to select multiple options for each filter (vs a single item in a drop-down). For example: I want a class that’s between 20-60 minutes long, either intermediate or beginner, and taught by one of my three favorite (for now ;)) teachers.

Thank you so much for asking. A very simple word search would be welcome - so that one could find body parts, but also “prenatal,” “flow,” or other helpful descriptions. I am learning more about using the filters from reading the comments - I use multiple filters now to find a class with a particular teacher of a particular length.
I really appreciate your work.


#27

I would also like the duration filter divided by 10 minutes instead of 20. Thanks for asking! Namaste, Tom


#28

Body parts would be great and also to find classes for better sleep easier. Thank you :slight_smile:


#29

I agree with this wholeheartedly!! Alternatively, I wish there was a way to click several multiple selections in a category at once.


#30

Fantastic feedback, everyone! We’re taking notes and coming up with ideas for 2019!

Cheers,

David

Just thinking about my journey with DYWM, an absolute beginner filter would be very helpful. I tried some beginner classes in the beginning that were a bit challenging but persevered. I have recommended your site to others and would hate for them to give up because the first class they tried was too difficult.
