We’re bending over backward and sweating through our yoga pants for you, Dallas. For this list of Dallas’ best karma palaces, Katie Womack and I combined our yogi knowledge and crawled out of child’s pose to try new studios. We downward dogged for days on end to present you with the following round up of the city’s best yoga studios. Namaste, Dallas.

YogaSport:
YogaSport is a tiny, no-frills studio tucked into a shopping center above Gloria’s on Lemmon Ave. While they welcome all levels, this is a seriously hard-core yoga studio that teaches Baptiste-style power yoga. The instructors are excellent and the classes are fast-paced flow classes that will challenge your physical and mental strength and kick your ass – and your arms and your thighs and your back and your shoulders — into shape. Oh, and you’ll sweat. Literal buckets of sweat. This is partly because the studio is heated to 90 degrees, but mostly because Baptiste power yoga is a fantastic workout. Want some definition in your arm muscles? Try doing what feels like a million chaturangas per class at an aerobic pace.
This little studio has a changing room and cubbies for your belongings, but there are no showers and you’ll need to bring your own mat and towel. The one studio space is well, intimate, so you’ll get to know your neighbors if a class is full, but the energy is high and the vibes positive. There are two to four power flow classes available per day, with options as early as 6:00am and as late as 8:00pm.

Notes:
-A handy online app makes keeping up with the schedule and signing up for classes easy.
-There’s a strong sense of community here. A bulletin board in the dressing room features pictures of featured members and messages from staff.

Price:
It costs $18 to drop in on a single class, but a variety of packages are available to members. New clients are offered unlimited classes for one month for only $39. After that, members that set up monthly auto-pay get unlimited classes for $109 per month.

Location:
4140 Lemmon Ave., Suite 280
