Case Study - Revitalizing an Iconic Yoga Studio’s Online Presence

Codacora did a branding refresh for Balmain Yoga and built an entirely new website with a custom booking system. The site was built to be fast, engaging, and to work with custom plugins. Balmain Yoga is the top-ranking yoga studio on Google in Balmain based on our work.

A Legacy in Yoga

The Balmain Iyengar Yoga Studio is not just a place—it's an institution. Founded in 1980 by the world-reknowned Pixie Lillas, Balmain Yoga carries forward a legacy of authentic Iyengar Yoga practice. At Codacora, we understood the weight of this legacy and the responsibility we held in translating it into a digital experience. Our design choices, UX flow, and overall website architecture were all aimed at preserving this legacy while making it accessible to a new generation of yoga enthusiasts. Our goal was to highlight the dedication and experience that Pixie and her team bring to their practice, whilst appealing to a broad audience.

Crafting an Accessible Digital Experience

In the world of yoga, the experience is everything. The calm of the space, the guidance of an instructor, and the sense of community are pivotal to the practice. Our challenge was to bring that same tangible atmosphere to an online setting. The Balmain Yoga website goes beyond just providing information; it's an online extension of their physical space, a platform where practitioners can engage, learn, and grow. From in-depth video classes to illustrative guides, the digital platform becomes a place of exploration and deepening one's practice. This commitment to a holistic and engaging digital experience highlights the ethos of Balmain Yoga to every visitor, whether local or connected online.
