Yoga is practiced for reasons that may include fitness, stress relief, flexibility, and meditation. Whatever the reason for a practice, Austin offers yoga studios in almost every neighborhood, from the hills of Lake Travis to the vibrant streets of East Austin. Trained teachers, open and inviting spaces, and a chance to catch a breath from the busyness of life are a few of the accolades attracting Austinites to the local studios.
