I AM YOGI is the story of wanting to build a yoga community.
The company was co-founded by myself and Vittoria Manca. After practising yoga together for many years at various studios, we wanted to give it a go ourselves!
In 2016, I decided to leave my career as a secondary school teacher and complete my yoga training in Goa, India. On returning, teaching in the local gym just wasn’t enough and the vision started to brew.
The origins of I AM YOGI started in a space called ‘The Glasshouse’, which was essentially a conservatory on a pub car-park in Moseley. The weekly schedule started there.
Wind the clock forward 18 months and the purpose-built wooden cabin that now stands in Moseley Park, was The Glasshouse re-envisioned. The cabin was constructed by a local carpenter and friend, Jim Jones along with many helping hands from parents, close friends, extended family and local stakeholders.
Today, I have a dedicated team who work hard behind the scenes, from our CABIN CREW to our outstandingly dedicated TEACHING TEAM.
The community that I AM YOGI serves and continues to create is special - and now even extends out into the virtual world since the pandemic! You can practice YOGA AT HOME with us on YouTube from anywhere, anytime!
The work we continue to do is for every yogi that continues to show up and practice with us.
See you on the mat,
In a world that’s more grind culture than mindful culture, we help you build the strength and spirit to take on whatever life throws at you.
Set yourself up for a busy day, take a break or unwind after work with 30 classes to choose from every week.
JOIN A STRONG COMMUNITY
It’s not just stronger bodies we help cultivate. We’re proud that hundreds of our yogis have built strong friendships here too.
Whether you’re new to the area, a new mum, or a longstanding local, you’ll find a welcoming community of like-minded yogis in our cabin and at our events.
