Due to the saturation of fancy yoga studios popping up across Houston, studios and instructors are collaborating with athletic stores, bars and city parks to promote their businesses. Why pay $25 for a drop in class or spend hundreds per month for a yoga membership when you can start your morning off with complimentary classes in the weekend? Below is a list of the FREE yoga classes. Just don’t forget to BYOM (bring your own mat) and a water bottle just in case the venue does not provide them for you.
