Houstonians looking to get into pre-holiday party shape are in luck, as a new yoga studio is popping up in the Washington Corridor. Southern Flow Yoga will make a much-anticipated mid-October debut at 700 Durham Dr.

The new yoga spot will offer two variations of hot yoga classes, both of which will be heated to more than 90 degrees, according to a release. Sculpt, Southern Flow Yoga’s 60-minute signature class, will feature a mixture of cardio, weights, and traditional yoga flow. The class promises to boost metabolism, build lean muscle mass, and increase mobility.

Less intense is Stretch, a 45-minute restorative class, which will focus on lengthening the muscles while increasing coordination and improving alignment. This class promises to class increase flexibility and help prevent injuries by engaging the core and focusing on key poses.

Students can expect a bright, 2,000-square-foot studio with high ceilings and an abundance of natural light. A spacious covered patio with Wi-Fi and refreshments will be available, as well as Southern Flow Yoga merchandise and other popular brands. Guests can expect ample parking — which is precious in the densely packed area.

According to founders Rebekah Parker and Andi Minett, Southern Flow Yoga blend Southern hospitality with a passion to create a one-of-a-kind workout. Certified yoga instructor, Jordan Walker, has developed the training strategies and guidelines for all of So-Flow’s instructors.

“So-Flow will be a place where people can briefly escape from the crazy city life,” said Minett, in a statement. “We really want to create a tight-knit community where people feel comfortable and at home.”

The studio is set to add more Houston locations next year.
