Walls are important, functionally speaking, but the team at Trio Life Fitness finds the decorative potential in its four—with humans—during wall yoga classes. The studio's certified instructors attach students to adjustable harnesses and straps, then guide them through exercises that can be vigorous workouts of the back, chest, and hips without placing stress on the joints. It's just one of several yoga styles they offer, in addition to restorative, Ashtanga, flow, and Vinyasa yoga.
The Trio Life staff also teaches Trio Fit sessions, a fusion of flexibility exercises, Pilates-based strength training, and spin, for which guests should bring their own laundry machine. During spin classes, a certified instructor leads up to 15 students in pedaling toward cardio health—behind them, a vibrant orange mural shows a sunset and mountains as purple as a plum. Pilates and spin join yoga as their specialties, and the schedule features an abundance of each Monday–Friday, as well as at least one class Saturday and Sunday. These classes are the pillars of the curriculum because they hit the three aspects of the studio’s "trifecta of fitness"—cardio, strength, and flexibility.
BYD is Austin's original practitioner of Bikram yoga, the method famous for heating its practice space to a sweat-inducing, detoxifying 105 degrees to make the body malleable enough to safely stretch its way through all 26 asanas (postures) and two breathing exercises. Over the course of 90 minutes, BYD's impassioned instructors will lead you through each asana, bestowing strength and flexibility while priming the different organs of the body to awaken and do their groovy thing. Classes take place every day of the week from morning to evening and are geared for yoga veterans as moldable as warm wax, neophytes unable to touch their toes (or their hands), and everyone in between.
Bolstered by knowledgeable guidance from a certified instructor at the bright and spacious Davenport Village studio, budding and seasoned Pilatesfolk alike will develop new ways to discipline unruly areas and strengthen muscles through a range of controlled motions and resistance. In two private sessions (a $150 value), a pre-requisite for Pilates neophytes, a personal instructor determines individual fitness goals and develops a regimen to properly strengthen cores, improve flexibility and posture, and balance the body’s energy like a teeter-totter holding two cans of Red Bull.

Whether you like your yoga flowing, slowing, meditative, hip-hoppy, or performed by others while you sleep, today's Groupon will sate your yoga needs. For $32, you get a five-class pass to Kula Yoga, Austin's only family yoga center. Yoga traveled the world, teaching his invigorating fitness plan and reading minds. After a lifetime of deeply seeing into people’s inner thoughts began to leave him twisted and insane, Yoga gave up mind reading, saying, “The mind is a door locked for our own protection. I am hungry.” Today, the practice of yoga continues to be performed on yoga mats, though the true purpose of the mats—to induce clairvoyance—has largely been forgotten.
