Our classes are for all levels of Yoga students.
About 90% of the people starting yoga at Texas Yoga Center have never done yoga before. We truly specialize in teaching yoga so everyone can receive the benefits of stress relief, increased strength and flexibility and quieting the busy mind.
At each Level you will receive detailed instructions on:
- how to do basic yoga poses
- variations and modifications of yoga poses
- breathing exercises
- basic meditation skills
- how to become aware of your range of motion
- how to work within your range of motion
March Focus - The Core
The core is required for balance and good posture. A strong core stabilizes your pelvic girdle which supports your spine, front and back body. During classes this month we will do simple, slow, mindful moves that will teach you where your core is, how to engage it, and create muscle memory to maintain a strong core. We will focus on the core during yoga poses and when we string a series of yoga poses together (vinyasa).
These classes are appropriate for all levels. No experience necessary. It is a great time to give yoga a try and build a stronger, more flexible body.
BACKS & BASICS CLASS
We offered this series during January and February. We will continue to integrate the exercises/poses we learned into all of our classes going forward. And will offer this series again in the future.
The focus for this class is to help achy backs by working with the hips and spine. The goal is to build strength, flexibility, balance and endurance by doing gentle stretches and yoga poses. This is a perfect class for Newbies. We will have guest teachers/lectures to deepen our understanding of how the back works and why it hurts. Barbara and Paul will co-teach this 8-week class.
Intro To Yoga
This Level is for people brand new to yoga and anyone with a concern about attending the other classes. It is a slow-paced, interactive class that will help you answer the question, "Am I doing this right?"
This level is appropriate for beginners through experienced. Detailed instructions will help you learn poses if you are new, and challenge your practice with variations.
The perfect class for those who do not want to get up and down from the floor. Learn all the yoga poses using a chair as a support for sitting and standing. You will receive the benefits of strength, flexibility, balance and mindfulness. And practice breathing exercises and meditation. Open to everyone. No experience necessary.
Small Group, Private, Corporate Classes
A lot of people like to try out yoga in a private setting before attending an actual class. It is a good time to get a feel for the studio and ask questions. Others have schedules or concerns that are easily accommodated in a private class. Small Group Classes may be a group of friends or a team at work who want a one-time class or series of classes to address a particular need.

Our regular yoga classes are customized so much that prenatal moms may attend the regular yoga classes with no problems. We will be guiding you throughout the class with modifications. We have had many babies born the day after a yoga class and a happy mom who used her breathing skills, relaxation techniques, and benefited from the strength and flexibility gained during our regular classes. You will need to talk with Barbara before beginning classes to approve your attendance.
