YOGA BREATHE (level 1)
A less physical practice in a beginner-friendly format focusing on gentle moves, modified positions, and mindful breathing to clear the mind and relax the body.

In a beginner-friendly format, we'll work to dig deep into hamstrings, hips and shoulders with plenty of time to breathe mindfully.

YOGA LAB (open level)
Join Houstonian's resident yoga master Robert Boustany as he channels his inner physicist to deconstruct traditional yoga poses into modern variations that isolate and develop specific aspects of the body's muscular system.

Recommended for those who want to maximize their physical performance on or off the yoga mat.
