Class Descriptions

We offer yoga classes in the Power Vinyasa Yoga tradition, linking powerful breath with the dynamic movements of the body using the Bowspring Alignment. This series of flow cultivates strength, flexibility, balance, focus and endurance. It is an energetic practice that tones the entire body as well as disciplining the mind. The room is gently warmed 80-90 degrees. Open to all levels of students, these classes will leave you feeling light and open to possibilities.

Breath and Body Power Vinyasa Yoga

This class links vitalizing breath with the mindful movements of the body to create a powerful flow. You will cultivate strength, flexibility, balance, focus and awareness. You will leave class feeling more mindful and revitalized. In every single class you will move through a series of strength building poses, balancing poses, backbends, and inversions. We offer modifications and intensifications during class to empower you no matter where you are in your practice. Get ready to take your practice to the next level as you discover your strength, challenge your boundaries, and awaken your spirit! Classes are gently heated 85-90 degrees.

Slow FLow YOGA L1-L2 (non Heated)

Our Level 1-2 class is a perfect place for people to begin their yoga practice or to reconnect with their yoga roots. Personal attention and modifications are used that makes this class perfect for both beginners, pregnacy and seasoned practitioners seeing a deep knowledge of the poses. Class moves slower than the Power Vinyasa class and poses are held for 5 breaths or more. In every single class you will move through a series of strength building poses, balancing poses, backbends, and inversions.

HIPS & HAMMIES

It’s often believed that open hips and open hamstrings are the key to having an open heart. This class is a fun variation on our signature Power Vinyasa that focuses on diving deep into opening and strengthening the often tight hips and hamstrings. Be prepared to open your body during this hip and hamstring focused flow that includes standing postures, balancing poses, inversions, and backbends. Class is heated to 88 degrees and deep, soulful music will accompany the flow.

STand Up Paddle Board Yoga (SUP Yoga)

SUP Yoga Classes are here. Are you ready to get wet, bask in the sun and float down the beautiful Lady Bird Lake? SUP Yoga is a great way to improve balance, gain core strength, and connect with nature and friends. This 90 minute class includes, paddling up to downtown from the Texas Rowing Center, 45 minute practice, 10 minutes of play time, 10 minutes of svasana and padding back. Our staff brings out the GoPro and also takes photos during this class as well.
Practicing yoga on a SUP brings a whole new perspective to being fully present in the moment Asanas (yoga postures) create a new challenge while floating, requiring full awareness, acceptance of mother natures mood and of course a sense of humor! Classes are held every Thursday, weather permitting at 6:30 at the Texas Rowing Center. (Pre-registration is required)

BOWSPRING

BOWSPRING LEVEL 1 (Sridaiva): Based upon the emergent Sridaiva postural system, this class is focused on maintaining the natural curves of the spine within a dynamic postural template called the “bowspring”. This slower moving class is challenging in that it requires awareness and activation of the back posterior chain, which is often weak and under-used. Bent knees, hovering heels, and a full radiant heart allow for the poses to feel springy, light, buoyant, and open. This class is open to all ages, all practitioners. Class is maintained at a temperature of 82-85 degrees.

The sequence and poses are selectively chosen and developed to meet your specific needs.
