HOW IT ALL STARTED
Yogaonethatiwant opened its first yoga studio in Damansara Perdana in May, 2013. Now, it has 8 locations; Shah Alam in 2014 and we have spread our wings to Damansara Heights, Bangsar, Denai Alam, Ampang and Kuching. Yogaonethatiwant was founded by singer/songwriter turned entrepreneur, Atilia Haron.
Atilia, who was trained at Vikasa Yoga in Koh Samui, has two business partners; MayHaliah Khadri and Shireen Salleh. Referring to YOTIW as a hippie yoga studio, Atilia’s objective for the company is to create a fun and free-spirited environment where young and old can practice yoga, not only to improve overall fitness but to strengthen mind, body and soul. Yoga has been proven to reduce certain ailments such as muscle pain, asthmatic and insomnia among others.
Other than yoga, YOTIW also offers Zumba, Acroyoga, Mini Bootcamp and Pilates. The company also organizes free weekly yoga sessions for the public at KLCC Public Park every Saturday morning at 7.30am. YOTIW classes can be booked up to seven days in advanced via KFit and Fave website and App. On top of that, YOTIW also conducts yoga classes for Maxis, Bank Negara, WEBE, PR1MA, CIMB, Petron, Khazanah, AFI, Petronita, Celcom and other corporate clients.

One of YOTIW’s pioneer student, Azie Moggie Doha (Azie) is opening up her lovely home 3 times a week to offer classes to Bangsar YOTIW students. 7.30am on Tuesdays and Thursdays and 10.30am on Friday (commencement date to be confirmed for Friday class).
Azie first started yoga 7 years ago but her real yoga journey only began in earnest when she turned 40 a couple of years ago and started going to YOTIW. Yoga has given her a strong sense of self-direction and determination that never sits at odds with all the demands around her, nothing feels like a sacrifice. She says it gives her purpose, sanctuary, satisfaction, all the things about a strong sense of self that is at the same time never selfish. “Apart from the physical / mental energy and well-being I get, what I love most about the ethos of YOTIW is its sincere vibe – the real, the honest, the true,” says Azie. She adds “What we’ve got coming up are solutions to share exactly this…hard to put a word on it…maybe that’s why we’ve got such a long one – YOGAONETHATIWANT!
