Tell us about Yogific
We’re a tribe of vegan and yoga enthusiasts who’ve come together to infuse our passions of both rewarding practices. Through our health-driven tribe, we raise awareness of yoga and veganism, and highlight the benefits, whilst influencing others to get involved. We take our passion and project it through our yoga and vegan festivals, where visitors are invited to experience vegan products, food, yoga, and meditation classes.
What drove you to start the business?
We are passionate about combining holistic lifestyles with a vegan diet, and we wanted to expand on this, through creating awareness, and building a community.
When embracing yoga we believe that individuals should embrace a spiritual lifestyle fully. This can be done through no longer supporting violent practices – such as the slaughter of animals for our own consumption – and through embracing unity entirely. Both elements are a big part of what yoga represents.
We are pushing for spiritualists to transcend and connect on a larger scale with their environment, which goes beyond the mind, body and soul. By embracing a vegan and spiritual lifestyle, recipients choose to not only nurture themselves, but all living things that are a part of our planet.

Why did you choose The Accountancy Partnership?
TAP offers professional accountancy services through Pandle, which is a great cloud-based bookkeeping software. We run our festivals in foreign countries, so our business expenses are paid in multiple currencies via cards, cash or third party payment services.
Through Pandle we can easily import and collate transactions from spreadsheets and various formats – we simply specify relevant columns and Pandle handles the rest.
Using Pandle saves a lot of time and effort for us as a business, for when we’re constantly working from place to place. Pandle takes care of our transactions that differ in currency, and are imported through a variety of different sources. Without Pandle and The Accountancy Partnership, it would be extremely difficult for us to manage our bookkeeping ourselves, whilst providing the services that we offer.
Would you recommend The Accountancy Partnership?
Yes, definitely. We value simple setup, easy-to-learn software and 24/7 support from the Accountancy Partnership staff, whenever we have questions or need help.
What do you have planned for Yogific in the future?
We want to keep expanding our passionate community! Going forward, Yogific want to share the benefits of eating raw and engaging in yoga to everyone, by continuing to deliver as many global events as possible.
We want everyone to experience peace and empowerment when embracing the Yogific lifestyle, but not for just personal benefit. By getting on board, participants can help and support the collective; our world.
