AT THE HOUSTON IYENGAR YOGA STUDIO, we provide serious yoga instruction in a friendly atmosphere. Students of all levels of ability build strength, flexibility, stability and balance, of both body and mind.
In the company of other beginners, new students learn step-by-step the basic principles of Iyengar Yoga, laying the foundation by practicing the fundamentals of basic poses.
As study continues, students refine their basic poses, and as the body is strengthened and stabilized, more advanced postures are introduced.
Instructors are certified to teach Iyengar Yoga only after years of practice and study, and must pass a rigorous certification exam. Our teachers, all of whom are certified, give lots of individual instruction and correction to make the practice as safe and beneficial as possible.
Please see the Free Classes page for a schedule. Though it’s not required, we recommend that you attend one of our Free Introductory Classes before registering for a beginning class.
The practice of Yoga induces a primary sense of measure and proportion. Reduced to our own body, our first instrument, we learn to play it, drawing from it maximum resonance and harmony. With unflagging patience we refine and animate every cell. . . .Yehudi Menuhin (from the Foreword of Light on Yoga)

We’re delighted to sell several powerful products in our little shop. As well as mala beads from Mysore, traditional chai spices from Benares, we offer a prana boosting phytoplankton supplement from Germany (this stuff rocks) plus a dosha balancing series of minerals.
