Inside Tejas Yoga's elegant studio, a team of passionate yoga instructors hone students' strength and flexibility all week. The studio's robust schedule of classes takes place amid chocolaty hardwood floors and a charming tin ceiling, where inexperienced pupils stretch, bend, and scrawl notes on bare limbs during a four-class introduction to yoga series. Patient teachers break down the basic postures and breathing techniques for newbies while modifying poses for practitioners with injuries or movement restrictions. Once downward dogs are properly mat trained, they can continue their practice in Foundational classes that prepare bodies for deeper mind and bodywork by focusing on standing postures and backbends. Vigorous sweat sessions challenge seasoned mat mavens with empowering pose sequences, inversions, and arm balances to strengthen muscles and instill calming confidence in stray spirit animals.
Yoga experts Jim Bennitt and James Tennant teach students to perform breathing techniques and postures from the Patanjali school of yoga, as well as Ayurvedic practices and meditation, in group classes. While new students learn basic techniques, seasoned yogis can stretch muscles and fold their skeletons into forms more easily stowed in an overhead luggage compartment with additional workshops. Pupils can also enroll in Tejas Yoga's teacher-training and mentorship program, which includes one year of training, one year of classes, and the use of Tejas Yoga facilities for personal practice. Dark wooden floors, ample space, and minimalistic décor create a tranquil ambiance with little furniture to catch dust or absorb negative vibes. Tejas Yoga's class schedule and answers to frequently asked questions can be found online or by staring long enough at a mandala.
