These days, many yoga studios offer "fusion" fitness classes and focus less on the traditional aspects of yoga. If you are interested in exploring chanting, meditation, Kirtan, and more traditional aspects of yoga, look no further than studios like Sanctuary Yoga on South Lamar. Sanctuary Yoga is a beautifully quaint not-for-profit studio that emphasizes Seva, or service, and donates their proceeds to the youth programs of the Amala Foundation. The space itself feels like a mini-Ashram. Expect to bliss out. They're open for outdoor classes (limited to 9 students) as well as virtual. See their COVID updates here.

1103 E. 6th St.
Another Eastside favorite of Austin yoga teachers is Practice Yoga Austin. Practice Yoga boasts, "absurdly high-quality donation yoga." Located on East 6th Street, this yoga studio holds a range of classes that fit easily under the "community" and "spiritual" category, but it's a definite bang for your buck at only $5 recommended cash donation. This, plus the quality of yoga teachers at Practice, make it worth braving I-35 at rush hour. They're not currently open in-person, but you can take their classes online.

Sukha Yoga Austin is the "Cheers" of Yoga Studios. When you go in, it feels like everybody knows your name. This studio was co-founded by beloved Austin yoga teachers and super-moms. Erinn Lewis of Sukha Yoga Austin has such a pleasing and kind nature that her challenging classes feel like a gentle pat on the back. With partner Mark Herron (and Erinn's teensy dog at the door to greet you), you'll feel right at home. They're open in-person, online, and on-demand. See their COVID updates here.
