Do you know how I AM YOGI began?
If not, sit back and give this a read...
It all started with me (Vicky) teaching yoga from a glass structure on pub car park.
Those of you who know Moseley, take a walk past The Village Pub.
And for those of you who joined me on those winter nights, with 6 industrial heaters and 2 blankets each, I hope this post brings back some welcome nostalgia!
The success of these regular weekly classes led to the hunt for a prime spot in Moseley to have a more permanent arrangement to ensure the yogis had a consistent practice.
Knowing the ‘Glasshouse’ worked already, it was a case of wanting to ‘pick it up’ and ‘put it somewhere a bit nicer’.
Being a local resident, daily walks through Moseley Park suddenly sparked a vision.
A friendly cup of coffee and deep discussion about yoga and the meaning of of life in the rangers hut one weekday afternoon at the start of 2018 was where it truly all began.
By virtue of a legendary park ranger and a forward-thinking chairman, the vision was to
become a reality.
The rest was merely a lot of borrowing money, sourcing a lot of wood, and doing a lot of caffeine-infused graft.
There were many people involved in the creation of I AM YOGI, too many to mention - but all of whom are integral to us being able to continue our special journey.
As I sit and type this post, I feel extremely humble and grateful for everything this work has gifted me.
My life would not be what it is....
From strangers in the beer-garden ogling at our fierce goddess poses, to now being able to gaze out to the trees of Moseley Park - it’s been one heck of a ride.
And we’re not stopping anytime soon!
