Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, and More.
Learning to Balance Mobility and Stability in the Studio and in Life.
Special Classes Saturday Feb 16 and Sunday Feb 17
We will hold a special Intermediate Teacher Training this weekend, instead of the usual Saturday morning pranayama and asana classes. So, instead of appearing for regular classes this coming weekend, consider this:
Saturday, 9am - noon Forward Bends, Twisting poses, and Inversions with Devon. (longer, but paced class: $30)
Sunday 9am-noon Back Bends, Twisting Poses and Inversions with Peggy. (longer, but paced class: $30)
Any strong beginner practitioner is invited to these classes. Take the opportunity to advance your practice and understanding! And remember, a hallmark of the Iyengar system is that we have ways of supporting and preparing for poses that will always give you something to safely work on in class, even when a particular pose is difficult. This is how we learn: by moving to the boundary of the known and reaching for the unknown.
And All New Students get 5 classes for $50
Our standard 5-class pass for only $50! If you are a new student and you enroll online or in class, on your checkout page you will find a promotion button. The code you should enter is:
If for some reason you do not find this, you can enroll in person and get the same discount. Not just an online deal.
Good News for Yogis who Need Massage Therapy
We are beginning a partnership with WorkWell Austin, a group of bodyworkers located at 1706 S. Lamar (north of W. Mary). Visit workwellaustin.com. Clear Spring students signing up for a first-time massage will get a 10% discount using/mentioning the promotion code "clearspring". And of course, this is reciprocal for all WorkWell bodyworkers and staff.
Clear Spring has transitioned to new MindBody Online software. This MindBody software will allow you, the student, to enroll in single classes or class packages online (this will be easiest, a big time saver), or to enroll at the studio and pay by cash, check or credit card. Record-keeping will be more reliable at my end of the deal.
The advantages of setting your own account online are several:
- It saves everyone time at the studio.
- You can easily discover how many classes you have left on your card, without waiting to come to class and ask your teacher.
- You can keep your credit card number securely on file, to make it easier and more time-saving to purchase a new set of classes.
- It may make it easier to avoid some of the imperfections in this software (which works well, though it does not do everything we could wish for).
Further (and this is the real reason behind the changes), this new system is designed to allow you to attend any of our Iyengar teachers' classes using the same class pass. You no longer have to pay teachers separately for your classes. This makes it easier for you to explore different teachers and find a class that fits your schedule best. This is way better.
And keep checking for new events on the horizon.
Clear Spring Studio was the first dedicated yoga studio in Austin, opening in the spring of 1990. The studio has had many physical locations in this time, but since 2005 we have resided at this beautiful, green, quiet, and blessed (twice! by Tibetan monks) studio. Devon Dederich is the director and manager.

Saturday Morning Pranayama and Asana at Clear Spring
One of the few regular pranayama classes in Austin! We explore the physical and subtle movements of the breath in order bring a calm, alert, evenly-spread vitality. Students with around a year of asana practice are very welcome to attend. And you can follow your Saturday morning pranayama class with Intermediate asana (with a discount for the pair of course) and set the weekend off right.
