Two local yoga studios have recently relocated in the downtown area of Round Rock.

Round Rock Yoga

Longtime yoga studio The Yoga Room reopened as Round Rock Yoga on June 17 with a grand opening set for June 24. The studio is located at 106 S. Mays St., Ste. 200, in a space formerly occupied by energy broker Spartan Energy. Founded in 2010 by Zelinda Yanez, the yoga studio closed its doors at 503 E. Palm Valley Blvd., Ste. 220, Round Rock, in March 2020 and began offering online-administered and -recorded yoga classes. Classes will continue to be offered in person and online. 512-318-2112.

Soul Strong Yoga

Round Rock yoga studio Soul Strong Yoga relocated from 309 W. Main St., Ste. 121, to 107 S. Lewis St., Stes. 110 and 120, in early June. Owner Julie Afsahi opened the studio in 2018, growing a yoga community locally in the five years since.

The new space is part of a mixed-use development owned by Brent Campbell, a broker with Don Quick & Associates, comprising four tenant suites on the ground level and two apartments on the second floor. Campbell was also Afsahi's landlord at her previous location, and Afsahi said moving to his new space gave her more space for the different types of yoga programming provided in her studio, ranging from slower, low-impact flows to power yoga and prenatal classes.

In addition to offering in-person yoga classes, Afsahi holds training courses for aspiring yoga instructors. The studio has made a name for itself in this arena regionally, she said, as well as online, where she is teaching several international instructors.

“I have a student in Germany right now; she just started this week,” she said. “We have students from all over who do our online.”

Soul Strong Yoga offers private lessons, yoga classes and several community events throughout the year.
