Market research and stragetic marketing applications for the Irish yoga market

by Pam Butler, published in Yoga Therapy Ireland, Spring 2015. Download the pdf version here.

 

Any yoga teacher or studio owner will recognise the questions fundamental to an effective marketing plan:

 

  • Who is the target client?

  • How can the client be helped?

  • What attracts the target customer?

  • What new market segments can be developed?

These are not the first questions that pop into mind when you think of “yoga”, but they are important to sustainable business success. Original research I undertook in 2014 provide some quantified answers.

 

The Irish Market

There is no raw data on the yoga market in Ireland, but a reasonable benchmark is that Ireland has 70,000 practitioners (1.5% of the population) including 1,500 teachers.

 

by Pamela Butler, Yoga Therapy Ireland, January 2005

Our dedicated group, 2001, taught by Paula McGrath.Astanga, Hatha, Iyengar, Shadow. It's all yoga and it's all available around Carlow. Whether you are looking for the ultimate in relaxation (think candles and incense), seeking a physical challenge that a vinyasa-style yoga class offers, looking to incorporate meditation into your life, or seeking alternative health products, Carlow's offerings are blossoming.

Carlovians' interest in yoga is not new, but the opening of a dedicated venue late last year is an indication of yoga's established and growing popularity in the area. Paula McGrath's Carlow Yoga and Health Centre offers not only a range of yoga styles but also holistic treatments such as homeopathy, reflexology and holistic massage.
