Yoga enthusiasts in North Texas know that the city offers a variety of interesting options for them to spend their time, including yoga classes with puppies and goats. Some of these rather unique places we even listed in a previous FunCity Stuff post. What some of you might not know, however, is that DFW is full of yoga studios, each offering something utterly unique. In this article, we will look at 7 more places where yoga lovers can get their fix.
Situated in Roanoke, this studio has been noted by Expertise as one of the best in DFW. With a wide range of classes offered in different styles such as core yoga, hatha yoga, and gentle yoga, Studio Samadhi offers something for everyone. The studio even offers rental services for events like group classes, private lessons and community meetings.
Bikram Yoga Fort Worth
Owned and operated by instructor Tammy Watson, this particular studio offers a dedicated Bikram yoga experience. For those unfamiliar with Bikram, it takes place in a hot room. Not only is it great for flexibility but also detoxes your body by making you sweat profusely. Readers may find that the term Bikram rings a bell, as celebrities and athletes have been known to practice this particular yoga style with Black Girl Health noting how tennis star Serena Williams incorporates it into her workout. And it has helped her with everything from improving flexibility to aiding her recovery.
Coral describes how Williams is currently the highest paid female tennis player in the sport’s history. With her dedication to alternative exercises, it helped Williams return to the sport after a difficult pregnancy. With any luck, the studio’s highly experienced staff and visiting teachers might just be able to impart the knowledge needed to help other women bounce back after pregnancy, and hit the ground running like the iconic 23-time Grand Slam winner did in her comeback.
Operating since 2010 in Weatherford, this studio was founded by certified yoga therapist Sandra Vanatko. It is no surprise that Indra’s Grace lists options such as massage therapy, nutritional services and personal healing sessions among their services, in addition to their regular yoga classes. There are also options for private and group yoga classes covering chair yoga, gentle hatha yoga and Kundalini yoga, a style emphasizing breathing and meditation that Gabrielle Olya reports celebrities like Kate Hudson and Alicia Keys swear by. For older readers, there is even a dedicated class for seniors.
Similar to Indra’s Grace, Yogali also provides Ayurveda and Thai massage therapy in addition to their regular yoga classes. Yogali has classes in meditation, core fusion, and restorative yoga among others. What sets this studio apart is that yogis who have been practicing for a long time can even take advantage of the studio’s 200-hour teacher training program.
Dallas Yoga Center
Yogis looking for a challenge may find their match at Dallas Yoga Center. A post by Dallas Observer titled ‘Six Best Yoga Studios in Dallas’ describes it as one of the best in the area for students serious about their practice, as the instructors are known to get students to attempt challenging poses before they even think it’s possible. Newcomers can choose between the more active Vinyasa Flow class or the calmer Somatic Yoga.
Located in a shopping center on Lemmon Ave., this tiny and no-frills studio welcomes yogi of all levels, but most notably offers Baptiste-style power yoga, which is designed to detoxify the mind and body. This means you should get ready to sweat, as the classes take place in studios that are heated to about 90 degrees and the movements are fast paced and powerful. Yet the trade-off here is a workout guaranteed to add some definition to your arms.
With multiple locations scattered across the DFW area, Sunstone offers convenience like no other. Although it is similar to Yoga Sport in that the studios are heated to approximately 90+ degrees, Sunstone offers beginners a free 30-minute orientation and a week of unlimited classes. The studio also provides yoga classes based on the four elements: “fire” for hot yoga, “earth” for power flow and even “metal” for hot Pilates. The “water” obviously comes from the amount yogis will sweat in the classes.
