CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than five grams – about the weight of a nickel – your practitioner releases restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it's effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction
When trauma or injury surface, the fascia, a thin connective tissue covering the entire body, becomes restricted tightening the muscles it envelops. This tightening prevents the muscle belly from being able to expand or contract naturally. This work aims to lengthen the fascia again, facilitating relief through release
Detoxifying Lymphatic Massage
Lymphatic Massage aims to stimulate the lymphatic system to remove congestion and stagnation from within the body, and help it return to a healthy condition. This treatment utilizes gentle massage strokes that remove blockages and promotes proper lymph flow. This technique is ideal (and often Doctor prescribed) to increase healing time) for pre and post operative patients, whether the procedure is large or small. Lymphatic detoxification is also great for the athlete or anyone who is interested in a systematic reboot
Pregnancy or Postpartum Massage
From prior to conception and throughout your pregnancy, your Certified pregnancy therapist will not only relax the aches and pains of your changing body but, by using a variety of specially developed techniques, can prepare your body for its best during childbirth. And after giving birth, a Postpartum Massage can aid in your body's readjustment, diminish scar tissue and be a pleasant respite after all your hard work
Developed by Fritz Smith, MD in the early 1970s, Zero Balancing is a powerful body-mind therapy that uses skilled touch to address the relationship between energy and structures of the body. Following a protocol that typically lasts 30 to 45 minutes, the practitioner uses finger pressure and gentle traction on areas of tension in the bones, joints and soft tissue to create fulcrums, or points of balance, around which the body can relax and reorganize. Zero Balancing focuses primarily on key joints of our skeleton that conduct and balance forces of gravity, posture and movement. By addressing the deepest and densest tissues of the body along with soft tissue and energy fields, Zero Balancing helps to clear blocks in the body's energy flow, amplify vitality and contribute to better postural alignment. A Zero Balancing session leaves you with a wonderful feeling of inner harmony and organization
Mantra massage therapists KC Taylor & Jacqueline Gorton are also certified Reiki practitioners. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. Reiki utilizes a technique called palm or hands-on healing. Through the use of this technique, practitioners transfer universal energy (i.e. Reiki) in the form of qi (Japanese: ki) through the palms. The movement of this energy allows for self-healing and the restoration of equilibrium in the energetic body
Add-On Cupping Therapy
By creating suction and negative pressure, massage cupping is used to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways. Cupping Therapy can be added to any Mantra Massage appointment

Amy Hogan Studio Mantra Co-Founder, Amy Hogan, is excited to bring her passion for yoga and healthy lifestyle to the community of Northwest Austin. Amy's love of yoga began in 2000 in Charleston, South Carolina. Shortly after graduating college in Mississippi, Amy moved to Charleston and started her career in corporate sales. After attending a Beginner Yoga class at her neighborhood studio in Charleston, Holy Cow Yoga, she was immediately drawn to all the wonderful benefits of the practice. Amy initially started doing yoga as a way to decompress after a stressful workday, but soon realized that the practice of yoga is very deep and she became eager to learn more. Shortly after moving to Austin with her family in 2011, Amy gave up the corporate world in order to spend time with her family and dive deeper into yoga. She soon decided to obtain her 200-hour teacher certification through Yoga Yoga of Austin, and shortly after started her company, Total Balance Yoga, which brought yoga to local businesses. In March 2016, Amy started pursuing her advanced studies in Boulder, Colorado with internationally-recognized yogi/teacher & co-founder of 90 Monkeys Educational Studio, Amy Ippoliti. 90 Monkeys is an online and in-person educational resource for yoga professionals. The goal of 90 Monkeys is to provide yoga instructors and studios the tools to motivate new yoga students and keep existing yogis inspired to continue practicing. Amy H. is inspired by Amy I.'s belief that "more people doing yoga equates to more conscious changes in people and improved well-being; thus, leading to more positive change in the world!" By linking breath with movement, Amy H. inspires students to be the best versions of themselves while taking their practice to the next level. She caters to students of all levels & abilities and ensures that all feel welcome and comfortable. Amy's students can expect a challenging, (yet heartfelt!) upbeat flow set to strategically selected music. Her teaching style is influenced by the modern teachings of Amy Ippoliti, Sadie Nardini, Kathryn Budig, Stephanie Snyder, Jason Crandell, and Seane Corne. Amy has spent time studying with Sadie Nardini in New York City. She's passionate about Sadie's signature style of yoga, Core Strength Vinyasa, which helps students obtain a total body-mind transformation from the inside out. Amy believes that how you show up on your mat is directly related to how you live your life outside the studio. When she's not teaching or hanging out at Mantra, she enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband, Chris, and her two precious children Heath (8) and Harper (4). She's committed to being a lifelong student of yoga and continues her education by attending local workshops and teacher trainings with influential teachers in Austin and around the country
Studio Manager & Instructor, Laura is passionate about helping her students feel safe, accepted, and connected in their yoga practice. In class, she offers strong alignment work through dynamic sequencing and breath awareness in hopes that this awareness can lead students to a deeper understanding of their inner selves. Students can expect a lighthearted, integrated, & informed yoga practice with Laura. Laura hails from Northwest Alabama, and spent several years in Chattanooga, Tennessee before she and her husband Josh moved to Austin in 2012. She has enjoyed creating jewelry for many years (offered in the Studio Mantra retail lounge!) and is also known to enjoy a good hike, a leisurely dinner party, and spending time with her two naughty dogs, Poppy the Boxer and Bess the Cow Dog. Laura recently completed her advanced studies with Christina Sell and Gioconda Parker at the San Marcos School of Yoga thru the Alchemy of Flow & Form 300 hour intensive teacher training program. She is incredibly proud of and blessed by the lineage and learning community created and supported by her teachers.

Laura shares her love of yoga in many weekly public classes as well as through offering workshops and class series
Chad has been practicing yoga for 12 years and is a 350-hour certified instructor from Dharma Yoga in Austin. Chad's first experience with yoga came in 2004, when he attended a pre-natal class with his daughter Marley's mother. With no expectation or idea of what yoga actually was, he stepped onto the mat, breathed, moved, sweated, humbled, and slowly began to recognize that the answers all lie within. After fumbling through the corporate media machine in NYC for 13 years, yoga was always his rock, and he settled in Austin to further develop his own practice, teach, and continue to strive for happiness. Marley was with him at his first yoga class, and he is comforted knowing that she's in his heart every time he steps onto his mat. He believes that mindfulness on the mat prepares us for both life's treasures and trials off the mat. He feels that when we crack open our body, mind, and spirit, the universe exposes itself so we can come home to our true Self. His classes are offered to all levels, blending Sukha (ease) and Stirra (effort), so that students can breathe into any tight space on the mat, but importantly, off the mat. Leaning in to both expansion and edginess is critical, and he provides space for students to explore their own practice with mindfulness to arrive at their highest Selves

Through Pilates Shannon discovered a life-long program that helps her maintain her active lifestyle. Shannon recently concluded her 600-hours in the Somaspace Teacher Training Program, where she is an apprentice and will graduate in the coming weeks

Angelene believes there is a beautifully symbiotic relationship between the micro experience on the mat and the macro experience of our larger daily lives. She centers her classes around intentional practices to assist her students to draw their focus inward and upward.

KC's first connection to Kundalini yoga was in his late teens. While living in Big Sur, California one spring he attended a May pole party. With the backdrop of the majestic redwoods & cliffs meeting the Pacific Ocean, the heady vibes of the gathering were raised and expanded when a local Gong master and Kundalini instructor did an hours-long gong bath. From that point in time, he knew he had a connection to this mystical and powerful practice of Kundalini Yoga. The Connection came into fruition when KC moved to Austin, where there is a large and vibrant Kundalini yoga community. After several years of developing his own practice he took the 200-hour teacher training at Yoga Yoga here in Austin. KC brings his passion for the technology of Kundalini to every class. He is continually inspired by the way that Kundalini Yoga is able to strengthen the nervous system, mind, body and intuitive self. KC is also a licensed massage therapist and a Reiki practitioner here at Studio Mantra

Shoulder Clinic with Allison Bond
Sunday, April 15th, 12:30-3:30 p.m. Allison Bond's Shoulder Clinic addresses neck and shoulder tension caused by everyday posture and movement. It will also address common complaints and common injuries of the shoulder and explain how to create balance in the joint. Key concepts will be revealed and demonstrated on the mat for an active practice that will stabilize your shoulder joints and cultivate the structural integrity, strength and mobility needed to reduce shoulder and neck stress. Yoga beginners and advanced practitioners alike will walk away with enough information to develop a daily home practice to cultivate the strength, structural integrity and mobility needed for happy and healthy necks and shoulders. Allison Bond is a visiting teacher Pralaya Yoga in Houston, Texas. After many years of dance training in the early part of her life, she found the dynamics of yoga nurturing, empowering and familiar. But osteoarthritis, a labral hip tear and scoliosis brought pain and fear to her part-time practice. Despite her physician's advice, she listened to her intuition and began practicing the Pralaya method, learning intricate details of how the body works and was able to practice again pain-free. Allison began to realize the knowledge and wisdom, spiritually and physically, that followed every practice and every lecture she attended. She sought over 1000 hours of training with Robert Boustany, Andrew Dugas, Diane Long, Ana Forrest and other highly skilled teachers, bringing her deeper and deeper into the experience of her body and spirit on the mat. Now she passes that wisdom along to others for physical and emotional freedom. Allison has taught more than 3,000 hours to professional athletes, children, injured and people dealing with everyday stress, alike. She focuses on body mechanics, alignment and bringing strength and ease onto the mat. Her students leave feeling replenished, happy and balanced. She believes that everyone can be physically and emotionally free and balanced at any age with any limitation

Our most prevalent class on the schedule, Vinyasa Flow is meant to meet all of your yoga needs. We'll practice syncing movement to breath, creating a moving meditation in practice. Studio Mantra teachers will lead you through this vigorous flow with many options to mellow-out or ramp-up your practice depending on your needs. Expect to get centered, move through an upbeat practice, and get your sweat on! It's the perfect way to start your day at sunrise, catch some "you time" during your lunch hour, or finish your day with a centered practice! We suggest Beginners take our Align and Slow Flow classes prior to experiencing Vinyasa Flow.
Studio Mantra's unique Sculpt class is a Vinyasa Flow class that incorporates hand weights and other props to add an element of strength-building and FUN to your practice! Students will work to sculpt and tone every major muscle group while moving through familiar yoga postures. This whole body workout is set to energizing tunes that will motivate you to get to that glorious, peaceful savasana at the end of class. Mantra Sculpt is an excellent addition and compliment to a regular Yoga practice. Expect lots of core work, lunges, Warriors, bicep/tricep curls...and tons of fun!
Sometimes you just need to slow it down. Enjoy this flow-based class where Studio Mantra teachers will link breath with movement in a way that invites deep stretching and exploration. Take the time to simply be a mindful, moving, breathing body…you can thank yourself after!
Yoga Align is Studio Mantra's "nerdy hatha" yoga class, inspired by the alignment work in the Iyengar and Anusara yoga systems. We will slow down the class pace and break down safe alignment for postures, introduce yoga benefits, and focus on our sense of self-awareness. In Yoga Align, poses will be held a bit longer than in a flow class to lengthen & strengthen muscles and to balance the mind/body connection. Align is a progressive, mixed-levels class; teachers will offer modifications and time to play with more challenging poses.
Gentle Yoga is a slow-paced, beginner-friendly Hatha Yoga class. It is appropriate for all levels of students, including those working with limitations. Join us for this practice aimed at gentle stretching and meditative movement.
Mantra Mellow is the perfect blend of gentle yoga, yin yoga, restorative yoga, & meditation. This class offers you the opportunity to experience the practice of yoga in a welcoming and relaxed space. Together, we will move through a grounding practice to bring you into connection with your center.
Kundalini is a dynamic form of yoga, known as the Yoga of Awareness. This style of yoga combines breath work, movement, meditation and mantra to energize the body and bring clarity to the mind. Kundalini creates a body, mind and spirit that is full of vitality and increased consciousness. Studio Mantra's Kundalini class is appropriate for practitioners of all levels.
Each Thursday morning, Studio Mantra's yoga instructors will share in leading our community in a free, donation-based offering of mantra and meditation. Our half hour together will be spent in centering, learning & chanting mantra, and closing with a few sweet moments in meditation. Donations will benefit a different charity or non-profit organization each month.
Mantra Fit is a high-energy class that adds cardio (and sweat!) to your regular practice! This vigorous class is designed to work every major muscle group and is a powerful complement to any workout ritual. Mantra Fit adds a strength-building component for yogis and also provides a welcome change of pace for regular gym-goers. Enjoy this challenging, muscle-toning workout with the added benefit of increasing flexibility and stilling the mind.
Following a classical Pilates approach, this class focuses on the basic Pilates principles of concentration, centering, control, breathing, and precision to strengthen the Powerhouse, correct alignment, improve posture, and create length and strength in the body. You will be guided through the classical mat choreography with an emphasis on precision and control. You will see your practice progress with every class. This class is accessible to beginners while also challenging experienced Pilates practitioners.
Our signature Mantra Barre class offers sequences uniquely designed by Studio Mantra teachers to offer you a creative blend of breath-work, Yoga and fiery Barre moves.
