The idea for Mobile Om was sparked during a particularly sweet savasana back in January of 2013 while founder, Cassandra Fauss, was attending the Baptiste Power Yoga Art of Assisting training. The weekend of intense, sweaty yoga sessions and deep self-inquiry led Cassandra to discover her purpose for using yoga as an avenue to be of service to others and create authentic connection.
Having recently made the move to San Antonio, Cassandra was craving connection and community as a teacher and in her yoga practice. She began to search for a way to make an impact and build this dream. As she surrendered to her mat for the final corpse pose of the training, a mix of imagination and inspiration called Cassandra to create a new way to connect and build a yoga community in San Antonio.
Inspired by her own fascination with the burgeoning food truck scene, the idea for a mobile based yoga movement was born. Cassandra knew if she wanted to shake things up, she had to think outside the box and that’s just what she did, taking yoga classes out of the traditional studio and into the community. In May of 2013, Cassandra hosted the very first Mobile Om class on the Hays Street Bridge.
Since then, Mobile Om has grown and transformed along with the San Antonio yoga community. Today, we are proud to boast some of downtown’s most scenic spots as class locations as well as hosting a wide array of special events, workshops and retreats.
