If you’re looking to de-stress or improve your flexibility, Yoga is a great place to start. Choose one of these yoga studios based on your needs and experience level.

Yoga offers incredible benefits and has become wildly popular in Austin over the past several years. There are so many yoga studios around town, where you can practice with other yogis in a safe, calming environment.

If you’re new to yoga and don’t know where to start, yin yoga is relatively slow, steady, and can be considered less intensive than a style like hot yoga. Vinyasa yoga is an excellent exercise for athletes since it improves balance, strength, and flexibility. Prenatal yoga is perfect for expecting mothers because it helps expand your breath and improve flexibility through pelvic floor movements. Other styles of yoga include Bikram (or hot yoga), Kundalini, restorative, and Hatha. It’s important to choose the style of yoga that suits your body’s needs and these yoga studios in Austin are a great place to start.
