What to expect

“A moving meditation”

When you hear the term “yoga flow”, or “a flow”, the type of yoga probably being referenced is Vinyasa. A Vinyasa flow is a strung together series of posture + breathe, moved through in a rhythmic flow. With a variety of poses and transitions available, nearly no two classes are alike.

A bystander with no background knowledge may look upon a vinyasa yoga class and think it is all free-flowing movement with no sequence or series, and, well, that’s the fun of it!

The derivative of the word Vinyasa:* “nyasa” means “to place”* “vi” means “in a special way”

There is consciousness and purpose to each pose, position, transition, breathe. Vinyasa is a playground - we can run around freely, feel wind in our bodies and fire in our souls, in a controlled environment, set by sequence.

While no two vinyasa yoga classes are alike, there are commonalities that streamline through each of them:

In a Vinyasa yoga class, you engage your Ujjayi Breathe. This is the act of inhaling deeply and exhaling thoroughly, all through your nose. This generates a feeling of relaxation, giving intention to each and every inhale..… and exhale.

Ujjayi Breath also helps build heat in your body during the practice, which coincides with another factor of the Vinyasa flow - it can be a bit of a cardio workout. The Sun Salutations, along with Chaturanga Dandasana, add some aerobatics to the vinyasa flow, and this is where you typically work up a sweat.

Sun Salutations - the standard warm up of a Vinyasa yoga class; a set series of movement that, physically, bring you up into a mountain pose and down, again, onto your belly, within the course of a few breathes. There are two components - Sun A and Sun B - and, typically, you move through each set three times.

Chaturanga Dandasana - this is the key transition that ends / begins each section of the series. It engages the core, arm muscles, back muscles…. well, let’s just say it engages the entire body.

Limited breathing? Cardio workout?? Excuse me, what?

No worries - like every practice of yoga, a sacred child’s pose is always available to you. And, your instructor will guide you through each piece of the practice, advising ways you can alter or adjust to fit the flow into the practice your body needs.

And, again, no two classes are alike - your instructor will take the standard blueprint and make it their own, based on their own teachings, experience, intention and general individuality.

A Vinyasa flow is a great way to engage strength, sweat, body and mind. It provides joy and peace, all in one. A moving meditation.

So, what are you waiting for? Let’s play.

The third eye lounge is a sanctuary for those experiencing a common awakening. The yoga and breathwork classes offered are valuable, insightful and have added great awareness to my practice. I also love the cacao and community it fosters! Every Friday there’s an open mic in the cacao lounge which is a great place to connect with other beautiful people

We had the most amazing experience at 3rd Eye. It was my first sound bath experience and I didn’t know what I was getting into. It was beautiful, emotional and magical. It’s a must experience and I can’t wait to go back.

So grateful for this space. I’ve traveled to many places and taken many classes, but this place literally feels like home. The instructors are all fantastic and intuitively touch on things that I am working on. I’m forever grateful. I recommend for anyone in the Austin area. I am here for a month doing a show at ZACH Theater down the street. They pointed me in this direction and I’ve been taking class almost every day before rehearsal. It’s been a game changer.

I've lived in Austin 15 years and have always wanted to spend more time in/around the Casa De Luz and Third Eye Lounge community, and decided to dive in with the intro package at the start of 2024. I couldn't be happier with my experience. Booking is easy, parking nearby is abundant, and there are props/blankets/mats on site. The community is welcoming, humble, and very diverse. Truly a mix of ages, backgrounds, and nationalities. There's a wide range of classes and events, the instructors are professional and provide consistently good experiences (each with a different personality), and the space is a nice haven right in the middle of Austin. I am also a member of a local gym that I love and have taken Yin classes there, but stepping away from a fitness space to practice mindfulness has been a nice change of pace.

This place is truly like heaven to me-an Oasis in the middle of beautiful Austin. I have really enjoyed all the classes I've attended at this location. Plus, the food and drinks are amazing, healthy, and unique! The scenery in this area is spectacular as well, and I have showed up many times to 3rd Eye simply to hang out, shop, read a few books, and enjoy a lovely, spiritual and open-minded experience. Thank you!
