Be Free at B Free Yoga Studio

Be Free at B Free Yoga Studio!

BFree is located on the cusp of the West Campus Area of Austin TX uniting the workday crowd and University of Texas Students with the convenience of central location and a great studio spot.  There is ample parking and a wonderful flow that starts from the moment you arrive in the space!  They sport two large rooms with wood floors, men and womens showers and restroom areas.  Towels and mats available for rent.  The main room can be heated and usually is! There are also dimmers to the warehouse-style finished ceiling which help to accentuate each segment of the class from warm up to cool down.

Greeted by a large desk and always a smiling and warm person, the outside energy mixes here creating a freshness.  Once you have signed in you will probably go to the main studio room to the right. This room is oblong and nicely finished for maximum yoga potential.  It is a tight squeeze for three long rows, but you will practicing with some experienced and also generally cordial yogis, who are easy to negotiate mats with. 
The Principal person I have interacted with is Shelby and she is a studio hopper's dream! She effortlessly recalled my name as I returned and made me feel welcome yet not as though I stood out. She also sits in on many evening classes creating a sense of congruence and community.  Her boisterous laugh, smiling announcements, and her yoga enthusiasm echo the positive vibes .  Gioconda Parker's Saturday morning and Monday night flow is a vinyasa wave of "North Shore" Caliber. G'nell brings a huge breadth of knowledge and unending joy to her Anusara Inspired practice. Victoria shares inspiring thoughts throughout her flow classes and also leads the BWeird series which expands the edges of the mat with various themed sessions.

I have relished in the B Hot class and most of the B Flow class and attending evenings and weekends. There is a full schedule holding space for a bounty of classes and workshops and special events. In their own words..."  We are a warm and welcoming Austin Yoga Community with Vinyasa Flow, Hot 26, Yin Yoga and Anusara Inspired classes. Come in and check out BFree with our great 10 day pass for only $20..  

After you have participated in a well led class, received savasana; there are ample cubbies, showers and bathrooms to accommodate you. Now these are space conscious but well laid out.

BFree has incorporated a new monthly offering called BWeird.  The last offering was a class complete with glo-in-the-dark paint, light show set to the back drop tunes of Pink Floyd. The next one is set to be Surfing on the Mat!

I appreciate BFree as a studio in the heart of Austin. They have consistently offered heart and soul in their offerings of classes.

They are a fairly new studio with an upcoming Anniversary event. April 21, 2012. I am posting directly from their website here....
