Our Story

Barefoot opened in 2012, when there wasn’t much going on in yogaland, especially in Birmingham. We got a bee in our bonnet about turning an unloved solicitors building into a slice of High Street Zen. A dedicated yoga studio for every-body. It was a big gamble, but we really wanted to create somewhere warm and light, and sweet-smelling, and NICE.

We did something similar with our little coffee shop, Fentons, back in the Noughties. Fed-up with  the lack of independent cafes, we opened one ourselves, making it up as we went along, mostly. Coffee and cake by day. Colourful, fresh food to share by night. Then we got busy with kids…

Fast forward a few years and Barefoot now offers group yoga classes, private and corporate sessions, online classes, workshops, teacher training, and retreats. 7 days a week. All designed to help you feel happier, healthier and more connected.

We’re well known for our friendly, amazing teachers, welcoming atmosphere and professional service.

“Looking after our Barefooters isn’t that different to serving up good food and drink, helping people feel nourished and happy. And more connected to each other. Most of all,  I love seeing people leave the studio, super-charged and alive, smiling at strangers.” Faye Fenton, Founder and Director.
