welcome to oak + lotus
a body inclusive studio focused on managing burnout
We believe that all bodies are yoga bodies.
And that yoga is so much more than just a workout.
We teach you how to use yoga to prevent + heal burnout:
physically, mentally, + emotionally.
We value rest + slowing down just as much as building strength, balance, + flexibility.
We make sure that every body that steps on the mat with us feels
welcome, comfortable, + safe.
We love working with newbies every bit as much as we do experienced students.
We're more than just a studio; we're a community. (And we always have chocolate.)
what we do.
In Flow (or "Vinyasa") yoga, we link our movements to our breath. This style is designed to calm the mind and strengthen + stretch the body. Our classes are never heated, and are clearly labelled so you can choose exactly the level of challenge you want.
This style of yoga is fantastic for all levels of experience, and is focused on deep stretching + relaxation. All poses are seated or lying down, and are held for 5-8 minutes while supported by blocks, blankets, + bolsters.
Yin is a wonderful introduction to the slower, healing-focused side of yoga.
In our prenatal flow class, we link one breath to one movement in a vinyasa-style flow, holding poses 1-3 breaths at a time. We work to continue building and maintaining strength while also finding grace and acceptance for our bodies as they change and shift.
This class is safe for every trimester.
baby + me yoga
In this class you'll move with your breath while interacting with baby, with the understanding that you may need to pause your practice in order to attend to your little one. Spontaneous naps and crying are allowed and encouraged (for you AND for baby ;-)

Highly recommend Oak + Lotus Yoga studio! They've got a wonderful and affordable monthly plan that gives you the most "bang for your buck." The space is thoughtfully laid out. There are mats, blankets, blocks, etc for your use, along with eye masks that can be used during the winddown at the end. The staff are extremely helpful and kind and the teachers are all wonderful. Classes are laid out as "mild, medium, and spicy" which is a clever way to denote the difficulty level. Overall, highly recommend this space and it's a wonderful hidden gem of a studio.

I appreciate the community atmosphere at this studio. People introduce themselves and show interest in each other. The teachers pay attention to each person's needs according to their body. It's very peaceful and welcoming. If you are a first-time yogi this would be a very non-judgemental and safe space for you to practice. I love how they give students a way to specify whether they do or don't want to be touched by the teacher during a class.
It has been tricky to find a yoga studio that I've enjoyed in the South Austin area, so I am so glad that I found Oak + Lotus! All of the instructors and employees are kind, thoughtful, and genuine. You can tell that they care about your well-being more than anything, and they won't pressure you to commit to a specific membership or anything you may be unready for. They are also all very accepting of all types of people, which can be hard to find in a yoga studio. The online option is also really great for those days when driving to class maybe be inconvenient or hard to fit in your schedule. In addition, they host some cool events if you ever want to spice up your yoga routine!
I 'm so glad you're here!
