Yoga at CrossFit Austin!

Happy Thursday CFA! We are excited to announce a new pilot program to the menu! In our efforts to continuously provide opportunities for growth, we’re beginning a trial course for Yoga at CFA. Two familiar faces will be leading you in this trial course! In the mornings we’ll rise and shine with Vy Mai and we’ll close out the evenings and weekends with Taylor Grande!
What’s the scoop?
We are doing a trial run to see if these yoga classes will become a permanent fixture on our schedule. Through the trial period, these courses will be offered for free. If there is enough interest and consistency in attendance we will continue the classes after the trial period is up as an add-on to your memberships. It will not be wrapped into your regular memberships, but a yoga pass will be an option you may choose to purchase as an add-on service.
When and where?
Thursday mornings at 5:30 am with Vy
Thursday evenings at 6:30 pm with Taylor
Saturday mornings at 11:00 am with Taylor
*Classes will run from July 6th – July 28th and will be held in the front office of CrossFit Austin
There are no pre-requisites to these classes, however, you must provide your own yoga mat. If you do have blocks or straps please feel free to bring those as well!
Feel free to message Gen with any questions! gen@crossfitaustin.com
About Vy:
Vy’s been at CFA since her sophomore year of college, so about 4 years now! She was first exposed to yoga while studying at St. Edward’s where she soon began to develop a regular practice. After graduation, she studied with the local donation based studio Black Swan Yoga where she earned her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training certification dedicated to the study of Hatha Vinyasa yoga, meditation, anatomy, history and philosophy of yoga. She has experienced the positive effects yoga and is excited to share this with the rest of the CFA community.
A message from Vy:
I’m just a girl who really loves yoga and I can’t wait to share this awesome practice with you guys! I personally, normally take fairly active yoga classes and like to always be challenged with new and more advanced poses. I aim to offer classes that facilitate growth, both physically and mentally, but also provide a space for self-care and simply an enjoyable time. I like to give hands-on assists and adjustments, when desired, to help students get deeper into the poses and learn proper alignment to avoid injuries. I’m so excited!


About Taylor: Fitness and athletic performance have always been a big part of Taylor’s life. She has been everything from a highly competitive track athlete, a national and international competitive cheerleader, competitive dancer, and gymnast. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science from Texas State University and an AFFA group exercise certification for yoga, Pilates, cycling, as well as circuit training.  Taylor has taught at Texas State University and at Pure Austin Fitness. Her favorite styles of yoga to teach are Vinyasa flow and Power Yoga.

A message from Taylor: Throughout my diverse background in athletics, one thing that was very essential to each sport was practice. You had to practice to get better, faster, stronger or to learn a new skill. My current practice is yoga. What’s beautiful about the practice of yoga is that you constantly evolve, with each pose leading to the next. You get to work on yourself from the inside-out! While being able to do handstands, head stands and funky balances is cool, yoga is about much more than what you can do on the mat. By practicing yoga you are finding inner peace and acceptance for the wonderful person you are by clearing any judgment or imperfections you hold on to. Nothing brings me greater joy than seeing those that I teach, find that inner peace through their practice.
