I’m excited to be back at Dittmar Recreation Center this fall to offer 60-minute Yoga + Meditation classes for the South Austin community. Classes will be held on Thursday mornings at 9:30 am in the recreation center’s dance room. I’ll kick off the fall series with a FREE preview class on September 29. Come try it out. Bring a loved one with you. I’ll be giving away a couple of free class passes that day! You’ll also have the opportunity to purchase 5 and 10 class passes that can be shared among family and friends.

Intro to Yoga Series at ABP

This being National Yoga Month and all, September is proving to be a great month to kickstart or reacquaint yourself with your yoga practice. If you’re here on my site because I’ve been asking you (begging, nudging, hinting, demanding nicely) for years to come TRY some yoga with me, then clear your Sunday mornings. I’m leading an Intro to Yoga series at Austin Bouldering Project the next four Sundays (that’s September 11, 18, 25 and October 2). You don’t need any prior experience. You don’t even need a yoga mat as there will be some available in the studio. This is a true 101 series, where we start from the basics. These are 75 minute sessions with discussion, instruction/demonstration, workshopping of poses and plenty of laughter on the mat. If you have questions that begin with, “What does ____ mean?” or “Why do we ____?” or “How do I ____?,” then this is a perfect place to start. Hop in to one of these classes or come to all 4. No prior registration is required. Class starts promptly …

September is National Yoga Month

I love this time of year when the heat of summer starts to dissipate, and schedules become a bit more structured. As a child, I loved getting ready for school again, having my new class schedule and all of my supplies neatly organized. Even though I’m well past back-to-school for myself, September is still a great time to get back to learning, to start in a blank notebook, to push yourself out of the comfortable and begin anew. With September being National Yoga Month, I want to expose yoga to friends, family, pets, neighbors, Legos, anyone with moving parts! To kick this off,  I’m partnering with Adriana of Jack’s Mom in Austin for two exciting events that I hope you’ll join. September Instagram Yoga Challenge Every 5 days, we’ll post a different pose on our Instagram accounts. Join in by sharing your pose, tagging us both (@findingdrishti and @jacks_mom_in_austin) and including the hashtag #ATXYogaChallenge so we can see. Get others to join and make it a group effort! Here’s where the fun gets kicked up a notch. Every pose you share and …

How to attend classes at The 704

I teach three evening classes at The 704 luxury apartment complex each week – Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 pm. While these classes are complimentary for residents, they are most certainly open to the public! The studio can handle about 10 students comfortably. Here’s how to come to class if you’re looking for a more intimate yoga session with a gorgeous view of their lap pool. Prior to class, Sign Up Online to set up your MindBody account for FXFit. You can purchase drop-in classes for $10 each under Online Store > Training & Classes > Group Classes South. There’s also an option for a monthly membership at The 704 for $49.99 if you think you’ll attend more than 5 classes a month. Park in the north building’s garage, between Torchy’s Tacos and the Broken Spoke. You can also park in the main south building’s garage if you don’t mind walking across the Broken Spoke’s parking lot. Meet me at the gate 10 minutes before class. Email (findingdrishti@gmail), tweet (findingdrishti) or direct message via Instagram (findingdrishti) to let …

Explore Texas: Longhorn Cavern State Park

Now that Bear Shark is coming up on his 2nd birthday and quite capable on his feet, we’ve been making a bigger effort to get out and explore what’s within driving distance of Austin. Longhorn Cavern State Park has been on my Texas travel bucket list for quite some time, so I was highly anticipating seeing this place in person. The drive to Burnet took about an hour and a half. We bought tickets for the first tour group, which was nice to not bump into other groups until we were on our way out. There were quite a few other families with small children, so we didn’t feel too self-conscious of our kids hollering to hear their own echoes. If I heard the tour guide correctly, this is one of two cave systems in the U.S. created by an underground river (vs. a drip system). The other one is Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. This explains why there aren’t the stalactites and stalagmites that are in most caves. I really enjoyed seeing how the “rooms” in the cave …

Sun Salutations Workshop April 30

Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 30! I’ll be holding a Sun Salutations workshop at Austin Bouldering Project, where we’ll dissect and tune up every aspect of surya namaskar A & B. Breath by breath, pose by pose, we’ll look at alignment, anatomy, structure, stability and modifications. Sun Salutations are THE cornerstone to any vinyasa practice, and this workshop will benefit both beginners and seasoned yogis alike. Early registration is $15 for members and $25 for non-members. Price of the workshop includes a day pass for climbing, sauna-ing and other ABP good vibes. Go to AustinBoulderingProject.com to learn more or stop by their front desk. REGISTER HERE Side note: Just to show y’all how much of a surya namaskar geek I am, I actually own this shirt in blue.
