The Yoga Room devotes itself to bringing the mental and physical benefits of yoga to all serenity-seeking students, regardless of experience and body type. With a focus on Hatha-style poses, The Yoga Room keeps movements true to classical yoga teaching during each encouraging class. Pop into one of the Gentle sessions for easygoing poses and centered breathing, or try out a vigorous Ashtanga experience—75 minutes of demanding yogic action in a heated room—to invigorate the body. New bend-and-stretchers can athleticize limbs in the Hatha class, whereas more experienced centers can twist up a frenzy in a Hatha flow session, excellent for wringing out stress, stiffness, and full-body dish towels.
In the words of ATX Pole Fitness's staff, pole fitness "can be athletic and acrobatic, and it can be sensual and personal." In other words, it can be whatever students want it to be. At ATX Pole Fitness, the emphasis is on empowerment and individuality. Members find their own meaning in the movements, whether they want to build muscle tone, spice up their love lives, or spend time hanging out with bats in their natural habitats.
For studio owner Stacy Bishop, pole fitness helped her blend fun with getting in shape, igniting a passion that's won her awards in the pole fitness competitions.She shares this passion with her students during small classes that zero in on self-expression and safety. In addition to pole fitness, she offers BUTI yoga, a form of yoga that mixes the ancient practice with plyometrics and tribal dance, high-intensity boot camp classes, and flexibility sessions.

As children grow, their minds begin to grasp the routines in their lives and create habits that stay with them as they age. That's why the founder of Little Turtle Yoga believes that yoga classes for kids can be so beneficial. In addition to boosting strength and flexibility, yoga helps children obtain a calmness and personal awareness that can be translated to all sorts of activities, such as doing homework and trading currency futures. Each Little Turtle yoga class incorporates games, music, and storytelling to engage imaginations while developing coordination. In addition to classes, the Mini Yogis–certified instructor also hosts yoga parties for ages 3 and older.
Before founding Body&Soul Works, Erica Santiago was a devoted dance teacher, choreographer, and performer, gaining an intimate familiarity with workings of the human body. Now, as a certified yoga teacher and massage therapist, she puts that knowledge to work. During private yoga sessions, she takes a hands-on approach, guiding the body into proper form to help ease stress, increase focus, and boost physical potential. And that contact is indicative of Erica's overall approach: sacred touch healing. This holistic technique balances yogic movement with intuitive, hands-on bodywork to ease anxiety and help heal injuries so that clients don't transplant their brain into a robot.
Amen Yoga wants to help busy people reconnect their minds, bodies, and spirits with ancient and traditional forms of yoga. At this yoga center, certified instructors teach classes in Hatha, Vinyasa, and Kundalini yoga. Beginners and seasoned yoga hands alike are welcomed in each class, and the overarching vibe in the studio is one of warmth, welcome, and grace. In the sunlit studio, students gain strength and flexibility as sessions work to connect breath with movement, lengthen stiff limbs, and become mascots for pretzel companies or other starchy products that bend.
